About Us

What your pets eat directly affects the life of your pet. Many pet food companies spend most of their money on flashy advertising, and not the ingredients. We’re the opposite, as most of our revenue is spent on human grade ingredients.

All of our products are made the Canidae way with NO corn, wheat, soy, grain fractions or fillers and naturally preserved! – many of which contribute to allergies!

The Confidential Dog Food report recently assessed over 2000 dog foods, including all the brands you’re familiar with that have huge marketing budgets, and selected the best nine in the world. Canidae was one. The others aren’t available in New Zealand.

Each year the Whole Dog Journal, one of the most respected dog journals in the world, generates a list of approximately 25 ‘Approved Foods’ from around the world. Once again Canidae is on this list and has been for many years. In fact here’s a quote from their latest publication

“I’d like to quickly dismiss the idea that any of the giants – Iams and Eukanuba, Purina, Science Diet, et. al. – could possibly make dry foods that are as good as the foods that have a regular presence on WDJ’s ‘approved foods list’. The fact is, though, of course they could; they have all the resources needed to do so. They could bury most of the competition in the “natural and holistic” niche… if they followed through and used only the same high quality ingredients typically used by the smaller boutique brands. But they generally stop short – perhaps because they are unaccustomed to paying a lot for their raw materials, or marketing the products at a correspondingly high sales price?”

Both of the independent studies above look at the ingredients, the manufacturing plant and most importantly the nutritional benefits to the dog. They aren’t swayed by marketing hype.

At Canidae Pet Foods we are committed to providing you, our valued customer and your pets, with the highest standard of excellence in product quality and customer satisfaction. If you are not completely satisfied with any of our products, please call our team for a no questions asked refund. In fact if you don’t become a raving fan of Canidae/Felidae by the end of your first bag I would personally like to know about it.

If your pet has special dietary requirements or you would like to know more about any of our flavours please contact one of our friendly team.

More than 85% of our clients use the original flavour consisting of human grade chicken, turkey, lamb and fish. This is an All Life Stage formula suitable for puppies, adults and seniors, as well as working dogs.

Here’s my cell phone number 021 742 344 – I’m confident I won’t recieve many calls.
