I switched after I got a bag that smelled horrible, like cow poop.

Innova always smells nice... and TOTW Pacific Stream smells good too!

Morado Dobermans... and Talla the Mexidog too! (group photo pending)

I bought a 6# bag of Eagle Pack & then a large bag (33#? 35#?) & Ozzy lost 4 pounds in however long it took to finish off those bags with 2 dogs so I switched. I tried Wellness Super5 Mix (Fish) & Ozzy didn't like it (he's really finicky).

Ozzy's on EVO chicken small bites (so far, no meal refusals) & Jagger's on Innova Puppy. Glad you agree that was the logical choice for me too.

Default canned canidae

I'm experiencing the same - did you by any chance scoop some out of the can and mash/cut it up, or just spoon some into the dry food?
The reason I ask, is because at first i just plopped some into the dry
and didn't think anything about it..
The next time i scooped some out onto a paper plate to mash it up,
and thats when i found something very unusual in the can of food.
I don't know what it is? It is in more than one can.
can someone please e mail me privately. Thanks

canidae is a great food and i'm sure it is fine. my dogs like it too.
It's just that i bought ten cans thursday, when i put it on a paper plate to mush it up i find pieces of something? i don't know what it is?
it looks yellowish, and has a rubbery feel? it was in more than one of my cans. one of the pieces was quite big, and it scared me . I opened a can this morning and there was just a small piece of it in this one, but this one i was able to squish. (for some reason that made me feel better) only thing is there was like a hard little pea like bean and some kind of white bean in this can,(this is the first time i saw a bean like thing) I never had a problem with it before. ??? it's just puzzling to me. (The dogs are actualy begging for the can, they won't eat the dry now, because they want it mixed w/the wet). It's just me that is scared to give it to them, because i don't know what that stuff was. Just check the can first and it should be fine.
I just wanted to know if anybody else found anything in the canned.

I had Auggie on Canidae for over a year and never had any problems. He ate Canidae wet for a while, then I switched over to Eagle Pack wet because it stayed moist longer after we put one of those can lids back on and stuck it in the fridge... then we just axed wet food altogether.

But Auggie is on a Natura food now (Cali Natural) because, honestly, I've not been impressed with Canidae's customer service and responses to things. Again, I personally never had a problem, but seeing somewhat rude responses from them to other customers, or just the lack of a response for weeks... it was enough to make me switch.

Thank - you so much!
I feel better already. I was just scared.
I was going to call canidae today, but i'm just going to axe all wet food also.
I use to feed just dry, mainly for convinience, and it worked fine.
(did it take Auggie long to go back to just dry?)

Auggie's cute : )

Innova guys, Innova.

I looked at Innova, but it doesn't have a Lamb & Rice formula. From what I could find it all has chicken and turkey in it.

Thanks everyone. : )
An update on my part.
I feel much better.
I found out what i was finding, were just pieces of fish!
I must have used the chicken and rice kind before, and this time
picked up the lamb and FISH kind.

No comment on brand, RE: this thread (as I've never fed any of these), but just wanted to mention, if any of you want to go from wet back to dry, and your dog turns up their nose at it, just soak the kibble.

I find it best to put steaming tap water into the bowl (just enough to barely submerge the kibble), then let it stand for about 10-20 minutes. The kibble expands, and turns to soft mush (much the same as the consistency of wet food) and given that it's still warm when he eats it, my guy seems to think he's getting something special.

I went from an extremely picky eater who would never DREAM of touching plain kibble, to not having to "lace" his dinner with anything.

Just make sure that it has cooled down enough (feel the bottom of the bowl) before offering the meal.
