Question Opinions on Canidae's new Grain Free foods?

Are they any good?

I saw some trial packs at our local petstore(they always put food on trial periods with little bags before selling the big bags) and I was curious if anyone had an info on them.

Thanks! ^-^

I don't know anything about the grain free Canidae.

I don't even look at Canidae anymore because they upset me/lost my trust when they changed their other formula, didn't mark the bags so people would know it was new/different.
Some people (like me) have dogs with very sensitive stomachs and we should have at least had some warning!

If you are curious and want to give Canidae's new Grain Free formula a try Pet Food Direct is running a promo on the new formulas until November 15th. If you buy a 30lb bag you get $5 off, 2$ off and 15lb, and $1 off a 5lb bag.

Won't support them anymore, may have considered it if they had come and cleaned up after my very poopy dogs after they changed the formula

LauraLeigh I am pretty surprised about Zorro's reaction to Canidae. Canidae is an allergen-free food, so it shouldn***8217;t cause any new allergies and if you look at the ingredients, the new formula actually provides even better ingredients than the old formula. They upped the meat protein and vitamin E levels and added better types of carbs.

There's no such thing as an allergen-free food. Canidae contains chicken which is one of the biggest food allergens for dogs.

yeah, canidae is definitely not allergen-free. i couldn't feed it to harv because it made him itch. the only thing i can figure is the sunflower oil.

the petstore where i buy my dogfood just started carrying their grain free. i'm really curious here if anybody's tried it. i almost did, but then went with the totw that i've been feeding for awhile now.

After they switched the formula, and it made my dogs sick, I have kicked Canidae to the curb.

For grain free, I would try the EVO. It's cleaned up the mess that the original Canidae started on Allie's ears and feet, Noodle's coat, and Ruby's stomach.
