Opinions on Canidae for puppies

I know its All Life Stages so it should be

Sasha is on this and I'm thinking how much easier life would be if they were on the same food!

Any opinions on this food for puppies? I know alot say puppies should be on regular adult food due to protein content.

I cant believe I had a puppy a mere 3 years ago and still I have all these questions!

Re: Opinions on Canidae for puppies

I raised my most recent pup on Canidae. She ate it from 4.5 months (when I got her) until almost a year old, when I switched her to raw. I have no complaints...she grew nice and slowly, coat was great, etc.

Re: Opinions on Canidae for puppies

We feed Canidae and use it for puppies too, and we've been very happy with it. When we breed the pups are weaned right onto it.

Re: Opinions on Canidae for puppies

Apparently Canidae has changed their formula. There is a thread on here that deals with that issue.

I use Orijen because they manufacture their own food

Re: Opinions on Canidae for puppies

i used candiae with my last pup. she did fairly well on it, the only complaint i have is that she seemed to have ALOT of poops with it. puppies do poop alot, but this was 6-7 times a day. made me wonder if it was digested properly. but, she was on it for the first year, and things settled down eventually. it was an ok food, but they have changed thier ingredients, and their were a few issues with the food this past year.
i have since changed to Taste of The Wild and i feel its a much better digested food.
Origen would be my first pick, but its very hard to get.

Re: Opinions on Canidae for puppies

I've tried (or should I say the dogs have tried!) Canidae and they liked it a lot (of course, I've not found a food that they don't like). I think they did well on it. I am sticking to Diamonds Naturals because the price is good, it's good food, and they do really well on it.

Re: Opinions on Canidae for puppies

In the process of switching over to Canidae - he LOVES it!!! Pooping 4 times a day - that hasnt changed. We should be completely switched over by Monday so we'll see then if pooping increases.

The older one has been on it for almost a year and she poops 2x a day (an extra time if she goes to the dog beach - she just gets soooo excited!!!!)
