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.

    My Min Pins Love it!!

    By on

    My fur babies aren't picky, but of the two, my puppy has developed food allergies. After trying many different foods, this has been the only one that doesn't make his face itchy at all. I'm very grateful as I know not only are they getting high quality food, but it works perfectly for my pup who seems to be allergic to many things in dog food, namely peas and items from the legume family. It's hard to find a food that doesn't contain some sort of legume, chicken and/or grain. Thank you!!

    My TOY Poodle is sensitive to peas and chickpeas. I finally found this grain free kibble with no ingredients on her Sensitivity list. I like the tiny kibbles for her. Hopefully her readjusted diet will help her recent anal glands problem. So far so good. Thank you Chewy for carrying this brand and also making it easy to search with filters.

    After meeting the area rep for First Mate I decided to give this brand a try. I am currently using this new food as training treats for my two dogs. Making a slow transition to hopefully use these products full time. So far my dogs love them.
