Can this product be stored in a hot garage during summer? Or must it be kept in an air-conditioned house?
Answer by ChewyJun 11, 2020
Ideally, dry food and treats should be consumed within 6-8 weeks of opening the bag. Exposure to air, light, hot temperatures and humidity speeds up the rate at which foods degrade. To limit these effects, keep dry foods in their original packaging and store in a cool, dry location.

Excellent low fat/low protein option

I found this food when looking for a high quality grain-free dog food that I could feed to my older dog who has chronic GI issues and is prone to pancreatitis. Her condition has improved considerably since I started her on this food. She went from having GI flares multiple times per week to now going months between flares (when she does have a flare up, it is generally because she ate something that she shouldn't have off the floor or ground). My dog loves the kibble, it has greatly improved my dog's health, it is a high quality option made under strict guidelines in Canada, and it is affordable. I couldn't be happier.

Terrific Product!

I've been using this food for DECADES! Our Akitas have thrived on this and will not change to anything else. Plus, Canadian Dog Food Standards significantly surpass USA Standards...

So far so good

I have a highly allergic senior giant breed dog. At first we thought he had early stage kidney disease so I switched to this food a couple of months ago as opposed to feeding the prescription diets which appeared to have not so great ingredients especially for dogs with food sensitivities. Ultimately we found out he has Cushings disease, however I decided to stick with this food because he is doing very well with the ingredients and he's already lost some weight which is good for his joints. The only ingredient I wish they would consider adding is Taurine. Very happy with this food so far.

Loves it!!

My dog loves this food! She even lays outside the closet it's in now cause she wants more. She's only been using it a couple weeks and her hair is so shiny and fluffy now! I've also noticed she's looking thinner and has way more energy!!! Definitely worth every penny!!

My dog likes it.

My dog is a picky eater and wouldn't eat the prescription dog foods that were recommended for her. We were looking for a lower protein and grain-free food. She really likes this food! We were grateful to find it. The pellets are a little big and hard, but I put a little water on them and she does fine.

She likes it!

My dog likes this food, so far, and I like that it has simple ingredients that sound healthy. My only concern is that the kibble seems unusually hard and crunchy. I'm almost afraid her older teeth might break while chewing. I can tell she struggles some while eating, like it's super difficult to chew. Im wondering if the other firstmate foods are as crunchy hard?

High cholesterol fix

Monty loves this food, and when we switched 100% from his old food to this new food, his stomach wasn’t affected at all! I’m happy to find a more natural option for our aging pup.

Other FirstMate is fine, something is off with the Weight Control

We have a Golden that has pretty bad allergies and after the DCM ordeal with other foods, us having testing and finding we fit into that crowd, we changed over to First Mate. We've had good luck with all the other bags we've had - but something about the Weight Control, its made our dog incredibly thirsty all the time. He also stinks, smelling slightly rancid. And his breath will wake you up at night if he yawns. We are about 1/3 way through this bag and will be contacting chewy to return it and switch him to something new.

Good for kidney issues

I was trying to get my dog to eat the prescription food for kidney disease, but she would spit it out on the floor. This food has lower protein and phosphorous than other foods, not quite as low as the prescription food but close enough that my vet is happy we found something my dog will actually eat. my spoiled girl has gotten accustomed to fish-based foods and none of the prescription foods were fish-based.

Wanted better quality food for dog with kidney disease

I recently received my first bag of FirstMate so I can't tell you more than my dog seems to like it. I was told that my dog would have to eat Purina NF prescription dog food for the rest of her life due to kidney disease (she is not overweight) because high quality food contains a high protein content, which apparently makes the kidneys work harder. But the quality of the Purina NF prescription is poor and very expensive. So I am taking a chance on FirstMate because of it's high quality ingredients and relatively low protein as compared to other quality dog foods. It's actually a little less expensive and my dog seems to like it better too.
