My dog loves this food and I love the limited ingredient list. Win/ win.
I have looked at and purchased more dog foods than I ever imagined would have been the case. But anyone with a dog with allergies knows that deal. Search and search, trying to find something with LIMITED ingredients. Many say they are, but are, NOT, inevitably containing something that easily escapes the breadth of your allergy panel. This food has one protein and one carb. Chicken. Potatoes. My 4 year old Schnauzer eats it and is doing better than he ever has. Even with immunotherapy and medication he has never done this well. Please keep making this, and don't be tempted to throw random ingredients in. Because sometimes, this is a dog's only commercial dog food fit. Thank you.
My dog is allergic to many foods. The vet gave us a list of foods that would be good for him. We tried two that he would not eat. First Mate Small Bites Fish and potato was also on the list. He ate it. I also ordered the Chicken with Blueberries to give him a little variety. He gobbled it down! I’m happy that we found it.
My dog has so many allergies that it was difficult to even find a dog food that she could eat. At first I bought the large kibble but then found after they started eating it that there was a small kibble. My dogs love both but the smaller is better because of their size.
I had high hopes for this dog food for my 8 year old Maltese. She will have nothing to do with it. Even moistened she runs away from it. Not good for her at all, maybe other dogs like it but not our little girl. We will need to try some other brand.
I really like the fact that the dog food consists of "small bites". I've bought other kibble made for small dogs, but the kibble still seemed too big. My dog is a 10 pound senior and her teeth are not great, so this small kibble makes it easier for her to chew. The only downside is this food is pricey and I'm not sure I'm going to be able to keep her on it long-term.
My little 10lb picky dog loves this food! It has helped his skin and teeth and he will eat the whole bowl. Usually it takes him a long time to finish his food, sometimes days, but this stuff he loves!
Our little dog loves this food, and I don't need to wet the bits for him to eat.
I always feed highly-rated, quality food and try and stay up on those ratings. My older doxie was having some constipation issues so I spoke with my food store person and she recommended changing to FirstMate because the protein in the food I was using was largely plant derived where here it's meat-based. Did the trick. All I feed now. Worth a try. Note it comes in small bites and regular.
I got this food for my little dog that has food sensitivities because is doesn’t have a lot of ambiguous ingredients & she needs a relatively low sodium content. Be aware that the SODIUM CONTENT IS INCORRECT in answer to a question is incorrectly stated as 0.15% which would be around 40 mg per 100 kcal. This is not correct for an “as fed” or % of dry mater. I contacted First Mate & was told the sodium content is 84 mg per 100 kcal. BIG difference. Still not that high considering other foods.
