Canidae owns their kibble manufacturing plant, however, some of their products (including canned foods) are co-packed.
Canidae has a beautiful dog-food refill station in some PetCo stores. However, the formulas offered in this station are the ones which contain a lot of suspect ingredients (peas, lentils, legumes) which may be damaging to heart health (research is ongoing).
Canidae in general relies pretty heavily on suspect ingredient (peas, legumes)
When the Pet Nutrition Alliance asked for information about their formulation and manufacturing processes, they did not respond.
They do not have a qualified nutritionist on staff, however they do consult with a ‘team of nutritionists’. The scope of this relationship is unclear.
