Canidae Dog Food!

Recommended Posts

Feel free to move this if I'm posting in the wrong section.

Has anyone heard about their "new formula"? Well check their website, you're in for a shocker!!

http://www.canidae.com/new-formulas.html

Scroll to the bottom, Yup, apparently they can "process out" the gluten (out of barley) to make it gluten free :angry: I e-mailed them a few days ago. I don't feed canidae, but I did recommend it to many of my friends. I just let them know that their food is NOT gluten-free and it's really important that they update their website to make that clear. This was the response I got:

Dear Adelle,

Please click on the above link, we have updated our site to insure all your questions are answered about our newly improved formulas. Be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom of that page.

Our quality of raw material as well as quality control has actually increased not decreased. Yes we have diversified our complex carbohydrates as rice continues to climb and high quality availability decreases. Our products are better than ever and more consistent. Our economy is facing some challenging times and we are being proactive in offering you the highest quality products, yet affordable enough for our consumers to purchase. We are not sure about other companies and their plans for change or their reasons in the past, however we feel we are being open and honest about our changes. We are getting alot of positive feed back from our customers that are actually feeding their pets our improved formulas.

We thank thank you for your comments, and hope your pets continue to recieve the benefits of Canidae Pet Foods.

Sincerely,

Julie@Team Canidae"

I just can't even wrap my brain around this!!

So if you feed Canidae, switch!!!

I have used Canidae for over a year now and I just looked at the label this evening on the two new bags we bough and realized they are so NOT gluten free any more. I have to find a new dog food!! Again. :o(


One Celiac gene and one gluten intolerance gene (HLA-DQ 2,1).

Grain free, casein free, soy/legume free + a bunch of allergies I have had since I was a child (stone fruits, nuts..carrots)

Following the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, but no nuts, legumes or casein.

I would write them back and tell them that you have already seen the 'benefits' of their new formula, you have been sick for months. Thanks but no thanks.

I am glad you discovered this but sad that you got sick before you did. Thanks for the heads up.

My dog eats Canidae. The bag we currently have is without gluten, but it will be running out soon. Any suggestions for a new high-quality dog food? He seems to like the lamb. BTW, he is a 5 year-old small dog.

Their customer service is not very good. My sister has an elderly gluten-intolerant dog and Canidae gave her the run around for days about their new formula. Ugh.

Anyway, there are lots of good alternatives out there. My dogs are doing well on California Natural and my cats love the grain-free Wellness foods.

We use Taste Of The Wild dog food. It is completely grain free. It is kind of expensive but, since it such high quality, you don't need to give them much. Our Aussie gets a soup can's worth a day and is thriving. They also make a feline version that we give to our cats.

I know this is a little late but I had the same problems with my 2 dogs. We found Canidae and it was so wonderful and then they switched the formula. Ugh!! So now I feed my dogs Eagle Pack as it is a good alternative.
