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.

    Good ingredients, good company

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    The the company that makes this food does not do cruel laboratory tests on animals and the ingredients are amazing, so that is why I decided to try this food for my dogs. No copper sulfate, menadione sodium bisulfite, or caramel color? Wow! My 5 dogs like it well enough (especially the pit bull), but unfortunately it made my female Italian Greyhound throw up twice (she possibly ate too fast), and it gives my male husky sloppy poop. For those reasons, I can't give this food 5 stars, but I still think it's good food. If my dogs did better on it, I would keep it on autobuy.

    Made my dogs sick

    By on

    I understand it’s a calorie rich food. Despite starting a slow transition, two of my three dogs got very ill after a day. I was excited about the food in theory but it won’t work and I’ve discontinued after two days.

    Great Ingredients. Dogs don’t like.

    By on

    After reviewing many dog foods, I heard really good things about this one. The price was great, the ingredients were great, great reviews, etc. Unfortunately, none of the dogs that I’ve been around have liked it. My two dogs refuse to eat it. If we try to mix it with wet food they like, they eat around it. My moms dog is the exact same. Won’t touch it. As much as I wanted this dog food to work for us, I’m going to have to try something else.

    Love First Mate dog food but this type made our dogs sick

    By on

    First Mate dog food is usually high quality food made by their own company in Canada. However, this "Skoki" type of their food made 2 of our 4 dogs sick with vomiting and diarrhea.

    MY ITCHY WHITE PITTIE IS NO LONGER ITCHING!!!!!!!!

    By on

    I am forever grateful for this food. Found out my white pit bull is allergic to FLAXSEED...FYI flaxseed is in most high quality dog foods! Very difficult finding a quality food without flaxseed! This one works for our wallet, her skin/allergy needs and she loves it! She cleaned her bowl within minutes! Normally she picks at it, drops it on the floor and grazes all day. She hasn’t dropped a single piece of this food on the floor. THANK YOU!!! I will always recommend this food to my fellow Pittie mommas who have itchy dogs!

    Much better quality kibble

    By on

    Our dogs love this food! It takes a slower transition from the food we were feeding. It's richer and can cause pudding stools without a slow transition. This is our food of choice now.

    Tried 3 times to switch to Skoki

    By on

    We were pumped to get this food because our trainer recommended it due to it not having pea protein, affordability, and being obviously high quality. We tried three times to transition her slowly from Purina Pro to Skoki and each time that she got to halfway Skoki, she would have liquid diarrhea. Vet ruled out parasites, so we figured that after three failed attempts, this food just didn’t agree with her :( We are back on Purina Pro Plan Large Puppy and her poops are back to solid.

    Great product

    By on

    Great product simple ingredients. I wish manufacturers would stop with the plastic bag packaging and go back to the coated heavy duty paper. So wasteful.

    Great food

    By on

    I love this food. Very simple ingredients and not all the junk dogs don't need. Did a gradual switch without a problem and the dogs love it!

    Second time a charm!

    By on

    My dogs have very sensitive stomachs and are very picky. The first time I tried this food, their stomachs went absolutely crazy... but they loved loved loved the food. I returned it and tried other things... and they have not loved any of the foods I have given them since as much as they did this one (and another flavor I was also trying from FirstMate). Because of the high carbs, and the type of carbs, typically found in grain free foods, I am usually limited to only grain foods for at least one of the pups. I decided to give this one a try again but with a super slow transition (several weeks!) but, they still love this flavor and the slow transition has helped tremendously.
