    My puppy is going through a weird GI system phase. I have tried five high quality foods with no success. I heard about this food on a Facebook group and decided to try it. It is fantastic!

    I love that is doesn’t have a super long ingredient list. I really love that it is lower fat. Despite the lower fat, this food is nearly 500 kcal per cup, so it’s great for dogs who don’t want to eat or can’t digest a bunch of food at once to get the calories they need. When you soak this food, it disintegrates with absolutely no swelling. Maybe that doesn’t matter, but it makes me feel better!

    Another real plus is the complete lack of potatoes, peas, and legumes. And the fish that is used is not salmon or cod–iinstead they use sardines, anchovies, and herring. Just a little different fish option for those of us who prefer fish.

    One more thing. This food has an AAFCO rating of all life stages including growth of large breed dogs. So it can work for any size breed puppy plus your adults! Great for this of us with multiple dogs.

    I’ve always been a big fan of grain inclusive foods that are high in meat content (this food has 74% of the protein from the fish) but also utilize grains. With the recent popularity of grainfree foods, I have been dismayed to see a decline in selection of really high quality grain friendly kibble. I’m so excited to find this food !! Thank you!! I feel like your number one fan on all of the Facebook dog food groups!!! I just wish my local store could get it in Madison WI

    I’ve switched all my dogs to this food. I have a dog diagnosed with DCM and the cardiologist told me to take him off any food with legumes or tubers. She said this food was fine. I’ve always liked First Mate and am happy that they are making a “grain friendly” option for those of us that don’t want grain free.

    My dear old dog has several issues: bladder stone history and ongoing intermittent seisures. He is doing so very well in the last few years with this food. And he likes it!

    I love that FirstMate has a fish grain friendly option. I have used this since they first came out with this specific line and flavor. I have one puppy who has an allergy to all feathered animals and lamb. I am comfortable feeding this brand and line since they have the chicken fat in it but remove the protein out of the chicken. She has not had a reaction to any of the products and it works well for everyone. I recommend FirstMate all the time.

    I have never had my puppy do so good on a food and we’ve tried what feels like everything. Her coat is shiny & soft and her poops are good too but it also keeps her interest! We love it and she loves it.

    I’ve got a Wheaten Terrier with IBD. Looking for a lower fat food, no chicken protein, no potatoes, no peas, etc. So far, he happily eats this! I soak it and he gobbles it up. Transition from bland diet to this went smoothly for my very sensitive guy.

    This was one of the foods that had high Taurine results on tested dogs in the UC Davis DCM trial. I mix it with Farmina Ancestral grain Chicken and Pomegranate which also had high Taurine results. I have a young Golden Retriever and I believe she is on the best foods to not get an enlarged heart. She loves this food!

    I just wanted to say THANK YOU! I’ve had a hard time trying to find a kibble that would suit my (problematic, yet still lovely) dog. He’s always had itchy skin and bad poop problems, and since it couldn’t get worse, I turned to this food without any transition (I know….).

    It’s been two weeks now and I’m breathing again. The more the time pass, the less his skin itches, and his poop turned back to normal and in a smaller quantity. His coat is shinnier than before, and even if he didn’t used to have weight problems, he seem more slimmer and in a better shape. Plus, this food is affordable, safe and needed in a fewer quantity than the brand I used to give my dog. Ah, my dog also adores the taste, every meal is a party for him (which I didn’t experience since I gave him Origen$$$$).

    In short, my dog and I love Firstmate. Thank you!

    I have 4 dogs. An old boxer, young boxer, very tiny 9 year old Boston, and a little hairy papillon/chi X. Young boxer has many allergies and vet recommended Natural Balance Duck & Potato. All dogs transitioned over and were doing fine until Natural Balance changed their formula. The little Boston started having severe diarrhea when Natural Balance changed formulas (without informing customers). We changed foods gradually resulting in continued diarrhea for Boston, and young boxer developed pancreatitis (heart murmur detected also). Medical emergency, went to vet. Started all dogs on home cooked rice & ground turkey and probiotics. Slowly transitioned to hydrolyzed salmon then onto this First Mate wild caught Pacific fish and oats. All dogs are doing FANTASTIC! They love it, diarrhea and pancreatitis is gone. Coats are softer and shinier than ever! Price is great. I couldn’t be happier and strongly recommend First Mate!

    This food is AMAZING! I am an advocate for this when anyone asks for a recommendation! Grain Friendly, no legumes, wild caught fish, no chicken protein, & AAFCO approved for large breeds! I went months trying to find the right food for my German Malinois, this is it!!! Thank you so much FirstMate, my girls tummy is finally happy, and my wallet is too! 🙂

    We put this into the kibble rotation for our 6 year old Saint Bernard after moving away from grain free food due to DCM fears. She always seems very uninterested in it and barely ever finishes her meals, which is concerning, as she normally gobbles up anything we put in front of her. In cases where she does eat it, she tends to vomit and/or have an audibly noisey and gurgly stomach quite often, more so than with any other brand. The kibble seems extremely dense and heavy and aways has a strange odor. Should we pre-soak it to aid in digestion? At a loss.

    • Hello Tyler,

      Thank you for your support of our FirstMate pet food for your dog. We are sorry to hear that your dog is not enjoying the Wild Pacific Caught Fish & Oats, and we appreciate you contacting us with your concerns.

      How long have you been including this formula in your dog’s rotation? Are you still on the first bag, or have you had multiple bags with the same effect? What other formulas are included in the rotation?

      Each bag is coded with a lot # and expiry date. If you can send us this information our quality control team will complete a batch audit. Our batch audits include a complete review of the ingredient sourcing, manufacturing records and quality control check-points. We are also able to pull product from the sample we retain from each batch for further testing as required.

      Our kibble does tend to be dense compared with other brands. Some people do add water to soak the kibble prior to feeding, and this should help aid in the initial digestion of the kibble.

      We look forward your response.

      Sincerely,
      Wendy
