Transition Instructions

When transitioning to our dry food from another brand, we typically recommend a 7-day transition period. Begin by introducing a small amount of FirstMate with the old food on the first day. Gradually increase the amount of the new food, decreasing the amount of the old food over the course of a week until they are eating exclusively FirstMate. 

FAQ

Why do your products appear different at times?

Our products contain natural ingredients without the addition of artificial coloring or binders. As a result, you may note variation in the appearance of our products between batches.

Chicken Fat and Chicken Allergies:

Our bodies and our pet’s bodies react differently with proteins and fats. An allergy is caused by the bodies reaction with the protein of what we’ve come in contact with. Our chicken fat is free of chicken protein and will therefore not cause a reaction for those animals with a chicken allergy.

Do you use GMO ingredients?

No, FirstMate and Kasiks do not contain GMO ingredients.

What is a meal? How does it compare to a fresh meat?

Chicken meal is a concentrated source of chicken protein in which most of the moisture and some of the fat has been removed. Meals such as these provide nearly 4 times more protein than the fresh ingredients.

    I will edit my review after my pups have been on this food a bit longer. The first thing I noticed when I opened the bag was that the food itself had very little odor and was extremely dense (compared to my dogs old food). What spur me into trying this feed is that 2/3 of my dogs have sensitive stomachs but also require high calories due to activity level and being farm dogs. Unfortunately their energy requirements meant I was feeding 4-6 cups per dog per day of our previous food. This feed averages 100+ calorie difference from most of the other dog foods, meaning I will be able to cut their feed back to 3 cups per day and because of the quality it should cause no stomach upsets.

None of my dogs are picky eaters, they would probably eat a tire if I served it in pieces and put it in their bowls. Time will tell but so far I am very pleased. I am constantly getting compliments on how healthy my dogs look, weight and coat. My dogs are: 12 year old Labrador 1 cup PER DAY, 6 year old Lab mix 2 cups per day (down from 4 daily), and 7 month old GSD mix pup 3 cups per day (down from 5). … more

  • Highly recommend for high energy dogs

    By on

    I have a 12yo German short hair pointer mix whose passion is running. She was 34.6 lbs when I adopted her 4months ago. This is the first food she loves. She is now up to 38.8lbs. No digestion problems. She now has small firm stool. She eats about 2-2 1/2 cups a day. I like the high quality ingredients, high calories per cup and reasonable price.
