Canidae dog food discussion and overall rating    
four and a half stars

Canidae dog food is made by Canidae Pet Food Corporation, located in San Luis Obispo, California. There is some mystery in who makes Canidaes various products, since Canidae has been somewhat secretive about it. On their website, they state that they own their own manufacturing facility, Ethos Pet Nutrition, in Brownwood, Texas. This facility was opened in 2012. However, per Whle dog Journal Approvd Dry Dog Foods for 2013, Diamond Pet Foods (Gaston, SC, Ripon, CA, and Meta, MO) were still making some of their products.

On May 5, 2012, Canidae Pet Foods had a voluntary recaul for some pet foods manufactured between December 9, 2011 and January 31, 2012 at the Diamond Pet Food Gaston, SC plant. This was because of the potential for Salmonella.

Ethoxyquin may be a concern to some potential customers, since ethoxyquin can cause damage to your dogs liver. However, Canidae denies that any of their products contain ethoxyquin. From their website:

None of CANIDAE's products are formulated with the use of ethoxyquin as a preservative, nor are they produced with Ethoxyquin. We pay high premiums for all our ingredients assuring only the best are used. The truth about CANIDAE is CANIDAE has always preserved its products naturally. We continue testing to assure our standards of excellence and commitment to meet or exceed the natural pet food category's finished goods test results.

Dogs feel very strongly that they should always go with you in the car, in case the need should arise for them to bark violently at nothing right in your ear.
