Rated 5 out of 5 by Molly My experience with this food
I have an active 9-year-old border collie german shepherd. For a few years I fed him Nutro Lamb and Rice dry food, but he was a little bit too thin all the time, and once in a while he would have a short period where he vomited bile but the vet couldn't find anything wrong. I changed to Canidae a couple of years ago and he build muscle tone and a very shiny coat, never vomits bile anymore. His stool is a perfect color and consistency and he never has diarrhea. I just learned how good this food actually is, though, when I had to travel for a month and left my dog with my sister. He ate a different food there, and when I got him back he had lost muscle, seemed stiff and showing his age, and he was slightly constipated. A week back on Canidae and he was spry again and had gained back the muscle and the perfect poop consistency. This is the best dry dog food there is, and my perfectly healthy dog is proof.

by LGRABO1 CANIDAE Grain Free Pure Elements - DRY DOG FOOD
Canidae and its ingredients fit great for my dog's needs. I changed from another brand to Canidae. The store personnel advised me of the fact that Canidae does not require transitioning days for change of food due to its probiotic ingredients. That was particularly important as my dog's previous food was causing her very loose stools. Canidae stopped her from that on the very same day I brought it home for her dinner. Her stools were back to normal that very evening. Chewy.com was excellent in getting shipment my way in no time. Thank you for allowing me to comment. Attached is a photo of Izzy that I used for a Summer Contest - entitled, "Izzy Needs a Vacation." Unfortunately, we did not win but she definitely is a cutie and is a winner in my eyes...smile..

Rated 5 out of 5 by thor17 I love the fact that the food is grain free
This food is just wonderful for dogs that have allergies. My dog seems to love it and does not have any allergic reactions from it such as itching, coughing, runny nose, sneezing or irritability problems since I switched him to this product over a year ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kvsall Picky eaters love this
I buy quality dry food always. This is the first time my picky cattle dog eats when I set the bowl down. It's like a miracle. I like the limited ingredients. I bought this for our rat terrier mix who had elevated liver enzymes, hoping this would be easy to digest. She's also just started denmarin for her liver. She is also picky and loves this. Both seem to work cuz no more piles of bile. Yay!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tazi Works for My Hounds
I have sighthounds who range in age from 1 year (very active) to 11 years (more sedentary). I fed raw exclusively for many years but a few years ago decided to mix it up a bit. I fed another meat-based high protein/high fat kibble that was a little too hot for one of my older hounds causing loose stools, something I was not used to after feeding raw. Canidae Grain-Free PURE Elements with Lamb and Grain-Free PURE Elements with Duck both are meat based kibble with the protein and fat content I'm after and they sit well with all the hounds. No more loose stools for the older guy, and the youngsters get the nutrition they need for their active life style without me having to feed different kibble to each of the age groups. I do still feed raw meaty bones (usually chicken) with their evening meal unless we are travelling, but I am comfortable feeding this high quality kibble alone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GSDFan Great for sensitive stomachs
I have two GSDs and both have sensitive stomachs, so I feed them a freeze dried food mixed with ram meat. I use this kibble in a treat dispenser to keep them occupied, as well as a training tool. Both are quite active and may get a cup of this per day. They were never great on other costly kibbles, but I have no issues with the Canidae.
