Canidae: Grain Free Pure Foundations
CANIDAE® Grain Free PURE Foundations is a super-premium puppy food featuring high quality Fresh Chicken.
Our CANIDAE® Grain Free PURE Foundations puppy food helps provide the optimum balance of nutrition to promote strong muscles, healthy skin and coat, healthy digestion, a strong immune system, good strong bones and teeth, and optimal DHA levels for proper cognitive development. This recipe has been perfected with a balanced combination of easy-to-digest fresh chicken, whole foods, omega fatty acids, plus vitamins and minerals.
Fresh Chicken & Optimum Levels of Animal Protein
CANIDAE® Grain Free PURE Foundations puppy food has delicious fresh chicken as the first ingredient. In fact, just one cup of CANIDAE® Grain Free PURE Foundations provides your dog with 45 grams of protein—the same amount as a 7 ounce chicken breast with a side of peas and a whole egg.
Whole Foods for Naturally Great Nutrition
The fresh chicken in CANIDAE® Grain Free PURE Foundations is complemented with wholesome foods including peas and whole egg for naturally great—and great tasting—nutrition. And our gluten-free recipe never includes corn, wheat, soy, antibiotics, hormones, or fillers.

- For pregnant or nursing females, we recommend free choice feeding.
- The above Daily Feeding Guidelines are a good starting point on the amount of food suggested to be fed on a daily basis. If you feed more than once per day, simply divide the Daily Feeding Guidelines by the amount of times fed per day.
- Always provide plenty of fresh water.
- When changing to CANIDAE® Grain Free PURE Foundations, some puppies may do better by making a gradual transition over 7-10 days. Start with 25% of the new food mixed with 75% of the previous diet and gradually increase the new while decreasing the previous until the transition is complete.
