Canidae Grain Free ALS Dog Food Review

The first thing I noticed when looking at Canidae Grain Free ALS dog food was the amount of protein. Canidae Grain Free ALS dog food has 34% protein. We consider anything over 30% high. The high amount of protein in Canidae Grain Free ALS dog food is great for working and higher active breeds. Canidae Grain Free ALS dog food is 80% Meat and 20% Fruits and Veggies.

Canidae Grain Free ALS Dog Food First Five Ingredients Analysis:

  • Chicken Meal
  • Turkey Meal
  • Lamb
  • Potatoes
  • Peas

The first 3 ingredients are named meat ingredients. This gives the food its high amount of protein.  The 7th and 8th ingredients are also named meat ingredients.  The ingredient Lamb is inclusive of water and once the water is removed it will probably fall father down in the ingredients list. What makes this food great is the high meat content and lack of grains and fillers.

Potatoes offers additional carbohydrates to fuel your dogs busy life.

    There is a better canidae fromula and it is still grain free. Canidae pure sky grain free is far better, and it rates 9 stars. Canidae pure land grain free rates 9 stars too.

    I put my Husky on Canidae Pure Land grain free about a month ago, about a week after she started itching, still not sure if its the food or the environment, she was raised on the Canidae ALS, but I decided to try the grain free… I was wondering if anyone else has been having itchy dogs on the grain free canidae??
