CANIDAE Pet Foods Expands All Natural Pet Food Line With
Grain Free and Beef Formulas

CANIDAE Pet Foods is pleased to announce that its line
of all natural holistic dog foods is expanding to meet the growing demands of
pet owners who desire to feed their dogs a dry formula free of any grain
products, and those who desire to feed their dogs a formula high in beef
protein.

San Luis Obispo, CA - CANIDAE® All Natural Pet Foods
www.canidae.com, manufacturer of all natural holistic pet foods that are fed and
recommended by thousands of certified breeders and rescue organizations
throughout North America, is expanding its line of all natural holistic dog
foods to include two new grain free formulas and one new beef formula.

CANIDAE Grain Free All Life Stages Dry Dog Food Formula
promotes a healthy meat focused canine diet by featuring human grade Chicken,
Turkey, Lamb, and Fish meals with added fresh Lamb Meat for increased
palatability. This results in a formula free of grain products that is composed
of 80% meat and 20% fruits and vegetables.

Similarly, the new CANIDAE Grain Free Salmon Meal and
Potatoes Dry Dog Food Formula gives pet owners the option of a high-quality
grain free diet for their pets without compromising on quality. The Salmon and
Potatoes formula uses salmon meal as the main protein source and results in the
same 80% meat to 20% fruits and vegetables ratio as the Grain Free All Life
Stages formula.

New CANIDAE Beef and Ocean Fish Meal Dry Dog Food
Formula is in response to customers who asked for a formula high in beef and
fish protein. CANIDAE Beef and Fish formula not only meets the AAFCO Dog
Nutrient Profiles for all life stages, it incorporates human grade USDA Choice
Grade beef from a private herd in the Midwestern USA. These cattle graze free
range and are hormone and antibiotic free. This formula features wholesome
nutritional oatmeal and diversified carbohydrates to compliment the high degree
of beef protein.

All three new CANIDAE dry formula dog foods are
naturally preserved, holistic and herbal formulations that contain essential
vitamins and amino acid chelated minerals, balanced omega 6 & 3 fatty acids,
natural skin & coat conditioners, guaranteed viable micro-organisms, and
guaranteed enzyme activity to help break down cellulose.

As with all CANIDAE pet food products, these formulas
have been tested to demonstrate superior digestibility and excellent
palatability and are made the CANIDAE® way with superior quality: no corn,
wheat, soy, grain fractions or fillers and naturally preserved.

Do you, or anyone, know when this is supposed to come out on the market? How soon is the near future?

I heard on another board (although I do not know where they got their information from), approximately 2 months and supposedly it's supposed to be around $50 for a 30 pound bag (again though, I do not know where they got their information from).

I think you are going to see a lot more grainless kibbles in the future. The main reason grain is in kibble is because it's so cheap. With the biofuel fiasco, the price of grain is going through the roof. The grainless kibbles are heavy in potato which is no better for the dog.

No, potato is no better for dogs. The upside of having a grain free kibble is by using potato or tapioca, it physically allows the manufacturer to use more meat in the kibble due to the mechanics of the extrusion equipment.

It does bother me to see grain free kibble that is not much, if any, higher in meat protein than grain inclusive kibble. The only benefit of having potato in kibbles like this is for those that do have allergies to grains.

It looks to me like the protein content of the salmon food is quite a bit higher than the ALS formula, and pretty much the same as other grainless foods out there. I seem to be having trouble getting to dogfoodanalysis.com to compare it to other grainfree formulas.

I haven't compared them yet, either.
Have you been able to get onto www.dogfoodanalysis.com? I am assuming that you have been there before...

I don't know what is going on with that website but I have been having lots of trouble trying to get to it! Anyone else having trouble with it?:confused:

Yes, I've been there. I doubt they would have it updated yet to reflect the new Canidae grain free formulas, though. Typically I like to see the ingredients, complete analysis and make my judgment from there.

OK, I did take a quick peek at the Canidae analysis and I'll say it does look pretty promising and I will likely bring it into my store.

What I'm not certain about is if the ALS is 80% meat, why only a 34% protein count? The fish blend is 40% and the Beef & Fish, which is not grain free, is only 24% protein.

I think I might try the salmon formula, but I really want to compare it first to other grainless foods out there, especially EVO, before I start on it. I had really good luck with Canidae before and now I want to see if this will work in a food rotation, but I guess I have some time before this acutally will come out on the market!

Judging by the analysis, I wouldn't mind trying it out if I fed commercial food. I will, though, question them on the protein content before I make any other comments or assumptions on the food.

Do you feed raw? What other foods would you recommend?

Hehe, it's because you read what their marketing department wanted you to read instead of what they actually wrote. :) Go back and read it again ... they say "80% meat protein". Notice the word "protein". To me that means that 80% of the protein is animal based and 20% of the protein is plant based.

The people in the pet food marketing departments get paid big bucks to come up with stuff like that. :)

However 80% meat protein is better than most of the kibbles on the market.

Yes indeed - I did miss that!!

I do feed a raw diet to my dogs 90% of the time - 10% of the time I feed a dehydrated diet for convenience, primarily if my Newfie girl is on a kick where she doesn't want to eat. She has a lot of issues so she has supplements that she needs every day so if she doesn't eat for a couple of days, I wouldn't worry at all other than the fact that she doesn't get her supplements.
