The way I see it... they are lowering the quality of their food, even if it's just a bit, rathering than having to raise the price because of the inflation of goods (and the rising cost of transport.)
Boo!

Still think Canidae is a great food for a lot of people though. I'd want to see what the changes really mean... how much brown rice are they losing? How much rice bran is going in? Stuff like that. But overall, not a positive move one way or another IMO...

Anyone know if they are doing it with their cat foods?

They will likely be doing it with their cat foods as well. Unfortunately, yes, the prices of rice are going through the roof and they have had to all alternate sources to compensate without their prices going through the roof.

I'm not crazy about it either, but, the alternative will make Canidae over the top, price wise, for many people.

I dunno, since Canidae is a lot cheaper than other good foods, this is probably a good move for them as many of their target customers seem to feed the food because of the price and relatively good quality. I think it'd hurt them more if their prices got as high as other foods because price is a main incentive for feeding Canidae.

Anyways, we feed Natura foods here nowadays. Canidae didn't sit too well with Beau.

I'm feeding Sancho Canidae as well, but getting ready to swicth to raw. This has been the only kibble he has consistantly eaten. If I were still planning on feeding this I would be worried that he would stop eating it I'm going to call the feed store where I purchase the food, and email Canidae. I'll keep you guys posted.

I like Canidae and will wait and see how Ranger performs the new formula. We switch up formulas from the All Life Stages to Chicken to Lamb formula because Ranger has A. D .D when it comes to food. He needs change.
Everyone is so pro Orijin. I think the protein is too high and I worry about the adverse effects on the kidney. There are grain free formulas without that high a protein like Natural Balance and Now. My dog needs grain in his food because of the need for fibre.

High protein does not create kidney damage. That's essentially an old wives tale that people still continue to spout.

The thing you have to remember with kibble is that is dried weight. I personally would never feed a kibble that is less than 35% good quality protein. I worked out the protein content of a raw diet if it was dried. It was 53% protein.

A raw diet in its non dried form is about 20%, but that does not mean a kibble with 25% protein would be sufficient for a carnivore. If you were to add the = amount of water, it would be less than 12% protein !! For comparison-horses who are herbivores, need a diet of 9-11% protein.
