What's the percentage of potato in this food? And the carbohydrate percentage? And if my dog is allergic to chicken will the chicken fat in this food be problematic?
Answer by ChewyApr 25, 2018
The Carbohydrate content is 28% as fed and 31.1% dry matter basis. Chicken fat does not contain chicken protein so likelihood of allergy to chicken fat is very slim.

Is this a low copper food? Thank you.
Answer by ChewySep 12, 2021
This formula contains 12.4 milligrams per kilograms copper, which is the minimum required by AAFCO to meet the nutritional needs of All Life Stages.

Big pieces

My pup likes it but he is 8 lbs and cannot handle the bigger sized pieces. I am cutting them in half, but likely will not repurchase. Instead I will use cut in half as treats. Wish they came in little bites. Recommend to larger dogs, not puppies.

Hard Kibble

My 9 month old lab has a tough time chewing the kibble. I decided to break it down into smaller pieces using a ziplock bag and rolling pin which has helped. Not sure I will continue to buy this brand again. I think Scout will decide that for me.

Picky dog approved. Great company

My dog will eat this like it’s a treat. Firstmate is a great company with good ingredients

Great food for larger breed

Our 7 mo old Belgain Malanois loves this food. He's really high energy and this seems to keep him happy and full. We give him slightly more than recommended because his metabolism we think is really high!

hair loss, dry skin, yeasty skin

I really thought this food would work for my dog! Unfortunately it lead to baldness, hair loss, and yeasty skin. For being very limited ingredients I really thought this would work. Definitely sticking with something else!

Not Pleased

The adult version is exactly the same sized pieces at the puppy. Very tough so we had to soak it in hot water/broth every time. Puppy reluctantly eats it. Will be looking for a other kind.

great product but the bag was torn

This is a great product, but the bag was torn and the food was spilled out and I had to scoop it out of the box

Not for my dogs..

I’m sure this is a great food, it has everything I was looking for, grain free, limited ingredient, fish and potato, fiber over 6% and protein under 30%, and a puppy formula made by a smaller, high quality company. This checked almost everything for me, except my dogs won’t eat it, and it’s very very expensive, especially to try and feed two large breed dogs. I have a 10 month old Cane Corso who’s pushing 100lbs and a 70lbs senior Amstaff mix who is a very picky eater with allergies. Neither one of them liked this food, so I’m back to shopping to try and find something else. Wish it could have worked but it throughout the transition from their Blue Freedom to this, their tummy issues didn’t improve, and they aren’t eating until they’re starving, often skipping meals. I’m almost done with the first bag and they’ve barely transitioned over, and I don’t think this food will go far enough for the price. It seems like a great food, but it doesn’t work for me and my dogs.

His ears are finally better and it's a safe grain-free

I've been using Chewy for quite some time now but I'm new to FirstMate. Due to issues with most grain free diets giving certain breeds heart issues, I was having a difficult time locating a dry food with fish that would be safe for my now 7 month old Cocker Spaniel pup. A couple recommendations from other CS owners for FirstMate indicated that it is one grain-free that is safe AND has a fish variety (to help with ear issues). When I first offered a few pieces to Kier, he was entirely uninterested (a first). With the pup watching, I offered those bites to my Shiloh Shepherd. After seeing her eat it, Kier decided to give it a try and he's been eating it ever since (still transitioning). His ears are vastly improved and his coat hasn't been inclined to mat as my previous Cockers' coats have. The bites were definitely larger than other foods but he's large enough now that the larger kibble is not a problem. I'll keep him on FirstMate into adulthood and am now transitioning my Shiloh to it to see if it helps with her digestive issues. Note: Kier does NOT smell fishy at all.

Great Food

Great food - our three year old Welsh Springer Spaniel still is on it. He came to us underweight a year ago and has thrived on FirstMate!
