Trout and Pomegranate PURE Dog Treats from @CanidaePetFood

Jeffie, Rudy and Rosie were delighted to do a taste testing of some dog treats last week.  Canidae has a new line of grain free treats and they sent us a bag to try.

CANIDAE® Grain Free Pure Chewy Treats are made with simple, nutritious ingredients that your dog is sure to love. Made right here in the U.S.A., we created these tasty soft treats by combining quality protein sources like bison, boar, or trout and paired them with desirable fruits and veggies like pumpkin, cherries, or pomegranate. Each treat is only 30 calories and made without corn, soy, wheat or fillers 

PURE Chewy Treats come in three flavors:   Wild Boar and Cherry, Bison and Pumpkin, and Trout and Pomegranate.  We received a 6 oz bag of Trout and Pomegranate dog treats.

Peas, Sweet Potatoes, Vegetable Glycerin, Menhaden Fish Meal, Cane Molasses, Gelatin, Trout, Pomegranate, Chicken Fat (preserved with citric acid and mixed tocopherols), Natural Flavor, Rosemary Extract, Green Tea Extract

Canidae Natural Pet Food Company is a family owned company in business for 18 years. I'm especially impressed by this company's dedication to safety.  To assure the safety of their products, Canidae has strict protocols which require that all formulas are tested in-line during their production runs and cleared by a second supervisor every 30 minutes. Additionally, there are 141 ingredient tests and 10 finished product tests that are performed. A sample of each finished goods batch is also sent directly to our research and development center where they are tested again, this time by a third party lab, for known toxins and potential risk hazards.

I love that all Canidae products are made in the United States using the highest quality U.S. ingredients. 
All formulations are produced in USDA, FDA, and AAFCO approved facilities. The nutritionally dense fresh meats and meals we use originate from USDA inspected meats processed in a human grade facility. Our high quality grains, vegetables, and fruits are from human grade producers. All Canidae dry goods, cans, and treats are naturally preserved. All of our commodities have undergone stringent testing procedures prior to going into any of our products—assuring safety and freshness for both your pets and ours
Verdict: Jeffie, Rudy and Rosie give all paws up for these Canidae dog treats  and I'm pleased to recommend them.
