Description

FirstMate’s Large Breed formula uses only wild fish from the herring family as a single source, novel protein. The large bite size will allow for controlled eating for larger dogs. The protein and fat levels have been carefully formulated to provide the ideal amount of calories required by a large dog. This formula is very rich in omega 3 and 6 fatty acids producing a healthy skin and coat for your dog. Single source protein (fish) and carbohydrates (potatoes) means this is one of the most simple, easily digestible, grain free diets available in the market today. Glucosamine has been added after the cooking and drying process to ensure maximum joint health. FirstMate Pacific Ocean Fish Formula is great for rotation or elimination diet. All FirstMate formulations are manufactured at our plant located in Chilliwack B.C. Canada with care.

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.

    Excellent food to train with

    By on

    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

    By on

    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

    By on

    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

    By on

    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 PRODUCT FOR MY GERMAN SHEPHERD PUP

    By on

    love this product for my pup. Her coat looks great and even as big as she is of a pup, I can give her just the right amount of food. She loves the size of the kibbles. Tried other foods and they were either too small or probably too delicious for her but required double the serving....not good if you don't want your dog or puppy overweight. FirstMate Fish Formula is great! Can't complain! Check out the ingredients. I prefer this to keep my GS healthy.

    Great on the Ears!

    By on

    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!

    Breeder recommended

    By on

    I have a Berner puppy and wanted to stay with what the breeder had for a few months and never hearing this brand I ended up loving it. It's great ! Not too much protein for a big breed and she loves it!

    Settled my dog's tummy

    By on

    My one-year-old boxer has always had digestive issues and loose stools. This is the one food that immediately firmed up her stools. Plus she likes the taste! She did well on the lamb version of this food too, but she gets more excited about the fish. She eats about 3 cups of this a day and she has not had any odor issues another reviewer mentioned.
