Pregnant females increase feed intake beginning week 7 of gestation up to 25%.

Lactating females increase feeding up to 50%, feeding a minimum of 3 times per day. Feeding requirements vary according to breed and litter size. Monitor body condition of pregnant and lactating females and adjust feed accordingly.

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.

    This is for the large kibble size

    By Cavkingmom on Nov 22, 2020

    I had previously purchased the 14 lb bag which was Small kibble. I saw this Larger bag and was like oh I'll get that. It arrived and I opened the bag and realized the morsels were huge. I didn't even know this came in different kibble sizes. Just heads up in case you need the smaller kibble size. Other than that this food has been great for our Cavalier King Charles who used to have urinary issues.

    A little disappointed

    By Tina on Feb 16, 2020

    I have heard such good things on this brand and this particular formula so I was a little a disappointed when my dogs could barely chew it. It was so hard and crunchy. I will have to add water and or bone broth to soften.

    First Mate Dog Food

    By Suey on Nov 1, 2019

    One of my dogs have bad food allergies. I had the vet test him so we know what kind of food to buy. First mate was on the list. Of course none of the pet stores carried it. I found it on chewy and had the food in 2 days. Great job Chewy!

    Amazing ingredients - one drawback she won’t eat it

    By Yumi on Sep 12, 2019

    I love first mate’s products and their attention to clean well-balanced food. My Dalmatian, who is not a picky eater, won’t touch this food. When I tried to hand feed her some, she spit it out. I mixed some with other food and she picked out the other food and left this. A real shame.

    First Mate Chicken and Blueberry

    By Annie on Jun 20, 2019

    Good quality, only need to give my 63# lab 1 cup twice a day, he loves it (but he’s a lab....), wish the kibble came in giant chunks so he’d eat a little slower

    Good but highly priced

    By Doggiemama on Dec 26, 2018

    My dog has severe allergies to alot of foods,trees,plants,molds human dander and other things this dog food is good as she doesn't have any reactions to it but sadly it is way over priced. so we are currently waiting for a new dog food brand we recently ordered that's still pricey but not as pricey as this one in hopes that it helps

    3 Dogs Approve!

    By Andrea on Aug 21, 2018

    Sought a new food for our 11 month old Great Pyrenees Rue, due to food allergies (egg, milk, soybean, rice, corn, oat, peas & salmon). The laboratory recommended First Mate Chicken with Blueberries. She enjoys it. We top it with some First Mate wet food. We've also transitioned our other 2 dogs to it who love it as well. Reordering today!
