Questions & Answers

6 Customer Questions


The first key benefit states "eliminates the risk of allergies derived from chicken.". However, there is chicken fat in this product. Please explain how the Chicken fat eliminates the risk of allergies from chicken.
Answer by ChewyJan 03, 2018
Natural chicken fat helps increase the palatability. Chicken fat is highly digestible and contains high levels of linolenic acid (omega 6). If your dog has a chicken/poultry allergy, the chicken fat doesn't contain the allergen that the chicken protein contains and is safe for your pet.

Why does 2 cups seem like a very small amount for a 50 lb puppy in a day?
Answer by ChewyFeb 28, 2018
This formula features large bite size for controlled eating for larger dogs, with ideal protein & fat levels carefully formulated to provide proper calorie intake for large dogs.

My dog needs to lose weight, would this be a good food to help with that? How much is a serving and how many calories per serving?
Answer by ChewyOct 24, 2017
The protein and fat levels in this recipe have been carefully formulated to provide the ideal amount of calories required by a large dog. There's about 500 kcal per cup and the serving size is based on your pet's weight.

The first ingredient is potato. What type of potato? White?
Answer by ChewyFeb 03, 2022
FirstMate LID formulas use a mix of Burbank and Norkotah potatoes, which are both cultivars of the Russet variety. Each of these varieties provides specific nutritional benefits to the formula and provides a source of easily digestible carbohydrate.

Happy dogs

I’ve used First Mate for 5 years now. My dogs like it. Over time they want a change in flavor, this was the latest shift and they are happy.

No Roundup in my babies food!

The main reason I started using FirstMate was because they don’t use Roundup in Canada so it won’t be found in any of the ingredients. Anything I can do to prevent cancer that killed my last dog.

Recommended and dog loves it

My dog is a picky eater - to the point where she'd lost weight. A pet shop in Tahoe recommended this brand, partly because it offers a number of different flavors, which I need to rotate and keep the dog's interest. The kibble is a nice size, even in the flavors where it's not labelled "large breed".

Highly recommended!

Our dogs absolutely loved this food! The ingredients seem to be of great quality. It's great for dogs who are allergic to a lot of different things. We highly recommend it.

Excellent food to train with

I am in love with the kibble size of this food. We are always looking for an alternative food with large dime size kibble and so far we have found Earthborn Large Breed which we use for 8-10 week old puppies and First Mate Large Breed, which we start using as soon as the pups are old enough to eat it with our own dogs. One of my dogs has always had a dry coat and this food finally brought some shine into him. We will continue to buy this food for our training sessions.

Bernese Mtn Dog

We have an 8 month old Bernese Mountain dog, who we never thought would get settled on a food. We tried many different brands and proteins, and Roxie either wouldn't eat it or it would upset her belly. We got her settled on First Mate Pacific Large breed quickly! She no longer has any more stomach troubles, she gobbles her whole bowl up, and she's starting to grow into a much bigger/healthier pup!

Weimaraner Loves It

My 5yr weim has always had a healthy looking coat but I'm shocked by how her coat is extra shiny after being on this diet. Kibble size is perfect for her and helps her slow down when she eats. Highly recommend this food

to big for treats

Since I never would feed kibble to a dog I certainly would ot recommend it. And for my planned use to use it as treats the pieces are way to large...

Great on the Ears!

Our Golden (10 yrs young) has had allergies her entire life and we have struggled with food that would not cause ear flare ups. So far FirstMate has been terrific. She's been eating this for about 3 weeks and loves it! Better yet, FirstMate loves her!
