ground yellow corn, porcine meat and bone meal,corn gluten mel, wheat middlings, corn gluten feed, ground wheat,animal fat(preserved with mixed), chicken meal, natural flavor, beet pulp, potassiumchloride, salt, calcium carbonate, vitamin e supplement, niacin, riboflavin, pyridoxinehydrochloridethiamine mononitrate, calcium pantothenade, folic acid, biotin, vitamin b-12 supplement, zinc sulfateferrous sulfate monohydrate, copper sulfate manganese sulfate, calcium lodate, sodium selenite


I am also rather new at this but i know that having corn as the first ingredient is never a good thing. And not only is corn the first ingredient but the corn glutten feed is also more corn. so from that alone it seems like this food is mostly just filler and not very good for your dog.

Try to feed something that has Meat of some kind as the first ingredient and if not then the second.

my girl Cali just got put to sleep recently....last friday to be exact. she got hit by a car :( rest in paradise Cali.

but now i have a new pup..another red nose. im not replacing her or anything..juts figured it would keep my mind off of things.

well he is 9 weeks old and i just bought him a bag of taste of the wild bison meat one....only gave him half a cup and he ate it all. he loves it. im gonna be feeding him this for a while... and i was wondering.. is it okay to switch the different flavors but with the same company ? like for example the pacific stream one to the bison and so on.

First of all- I am very sorry to hear about your girl. :sad:
Secondly, we switch protein sources in the dog food we feed. From what I have read on here, it is recommended. I also spoke with the rep and she said to switch, as long as you stay in the same company.

Sorry about your dog. May she R.I.P

I've read from books as well as some different websites that its a good idea to switch up protein sources so your dog has less chance of forming an allergy to something in the food. I dont think switching will hurt at all as long as you watch to see how he reacts to the new food and stay withing the same brand.

I do know some people that feed two different brands and swtich up but their dogs are always gassy and the poop is a nightmare to pick up. Maybe thats due to the food

I know many people who swear by it and it is highly rated by dogfoodanalysis.com. I recently switched my nine year old rottie to Evo. I am hoping that someone can explain to me why the protein level is considered too high and let me know of any other issues with the food. I am willing to switch her food again but would like to know more before I do.

Thanks!


I feed EVO and love it.

I'm starting to second guess my decision....I do wonder if anyone knows anything about the long-term effects of the high level of Protein in EVO.

I don't personally believe in a vegetarian diet for dogs.
I also don't see what doing a vegetarian diet for one day a week would benefit.... but I would love to hear some answers if anyone else knows.

Persons who use 1 day every week a vegetarian diet for their dogs said the it relax their body for example liver and loins,really i don't know my last dog Sandy was eating a lot and everything,she lived about 19 y.o and in good health for example but if it's possible do better it's a right thing to know what.(Scuse me for my bad english)

After 5 years with my various dogs on Canidae, I finally decided to switch. Young Vanya's coat has not been good (he has only been on Canidae for 16 months, since we got him at a year of age), and he developed a staph infection this weekend. The elderly girls have been getting itches and little skin thingies (hot spots, weird growths). The vet said a lot of her clients who had been thrilled with Canidae in the past have been noticing problems since Canidae changed formulas this summer. She suggested Wellness, so that's what we're trying now.

Wish us luck!
