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.

    Changed my English bulldog’s skin and coat!!!!

    By Mindy on Feb 7, 2021

    I saw another user recommend this food for his bulldog and mentioned that it helped his dog’s skin and coat improve and get rid of red yeast around the mouth etc! The same happened for my English bulldog. She is gorgeous but was having allergies and had reddish discoloration around her vulva and mouth. She was also starting to gnaw on her paws. My vet recommended a food with a single source protein (non chicken or beef) and after reading reviews, I switched to this food. Her coat is beautiful now and she doesn’t gnaw at her paws anymore. So happy I tried this brand!

    No more stink

    By Bulldoggemomma on Apr 2, 2020

    We switched to First Mate from another brand in a search for a high quality food that did not cause stinky gas/poop or feed yeast that sometimes grows in bulldogges wrinkles and paws. This is the best food. When our puppy has an accident in the house, we often don't even realize until we actually see it because there is no stink.

    No more skin and digestive problems

    By Arthritis on Mar 2, 2020

    Highly recommend this food! My Greater Swiss Mountain Dog had digestive problems and skin problems. He was on a ZD prescription dog food and also needed medicine to control his problems. After 3 months on this food, the skin and digestive problems are gone. Now no medicines, and no expensive prescription dog food. I highly recommend this dog food.

    Vet recommended but dog hates it

    By Barb on Aug 11, 2019

    My Great Pyrenees has terrible skin allergies to the point she bites her skin raw, the hair galls out and she has little red bumps on her skin. I don't lile giving her apoquil, but I don't have a choice. Cytopoint shots don't work for her so my vet recommended First Mate Chicken Meal with Blueberries. My dog won't eat unless she is very hungry. Since I've had her on this her stools are like pudding and sometimes like brown water. I've had her on this for a month. I guess I'll have to take her back to the vet.

    Dog loves it.

    By Maddie on Jul 21, 2019

    This is great food. I bought it for my rescue after trying a few other brands, and this is the keeper. What I love about it, - Her fur has gotten so much softer and shinier since switching - Very dense food - this bag actually lasts a while (as a 58lb lab, I give her ~2c a day( - Freezes wonderfully. I mix her meal with some water and peanut butter and put it in a large Kong overnight. She'll work on it for around an hour! Other food she'd give up - it wasn't as enticing. But this holds its shape, and smells great. Awesome way to occupy. - Stools are regular and solid. No more soft poops like we kept having with other brands. All in all - a bit pricey, but has worked really well for This is great food. I bought it for my rescue after trying a few other brands, and this is the keeper.
