My Weimaraner Audrey has had a noticeable change in her energy level and the appearance of her coat since I changed her dog food from the brand I had been feeding her to First Mate about nine months ago. In the past 9 months, Audrey has been more active and her energy level and overall happiness seems to have increased. In addition, I've had several people comment about how good she looks and ask me what I'm feeding her.

Hello Mates! My dogs and I have been huge fans of your food for years. My little Pomeranian, Teddy was almost bald from alopecia and allergies. My pet store recommended your food and it was a total game changer. Now his coat is absolutely luxurious!

It is one of the only brands that has a grain free line without peas and lentils as well as has a single ingredient Beef formula that is actually affordable.
They have other flavours so I can also rotate formulas which is another positive One other thing I noticed is they use smaller fish rather than larger ones like Tuna and Salmon so the mercury content is lower than a lot of other fish formulas which I also love!
The food is also nutrient dense which means I have to feed less and my big man doesn’t have to eat 6-8 cups a day to meet his requirements

I recently moved my Guys to Senior/Light Grain Friendly from Costco and Science Diet Adult Chicken Formula. Completed our first bag and what amazing results. He had always had itchy ears, scratching a lot no matter the food I had him on.
One bag in to First Mate Grain Friendly and all the issue have disappeared. He has also lost a few pounds needed. His fur also so much softer. His stops are so much less as he eats half what he did.
Amazing food. Would recommend to every pet owner.

Thank you, FirstMate for creating a quality dog food. My Rose presented with food allergies, manifesting in ear itchiness, as a pup. A veterinarian food allergist told us she is allergic to chicken and grains. Easy enough, right? I tried American limited ingredient dog foods but the allergies persisted. Upon research, I learned that American companies don't need to clean their machines between grinding dog food, so their foods aren't pure. I found your company from a recommendation. It was immediately a game-changer. We have used your food for 13 years now. Rose is going strong! No cancers, no fatty tumors (almost unheard of at this age/breed) and overall great health. She is completely deaf and has trouble with her back legs, but I firmly believe my girl is still alive because of the excellent dog food she has eaten. I rarely take the time to write to a company. But my Rose is still with my family because of your product. You have given her health and longevity, not to mention calm ears and skin. Thank you. I will be a lifetime customer and recommend your product to others.

Sunny absolutely loves this food! Best taste, formula, and texture. She can be picky with dry kibble and she has many allergies, so it’s been perfect as a meal and as a training treat! She will work for this food! I can’t believe she loves this food so much. I’m so glad that your brand is so good and has no recalls and a good formula. Thank you FirstMate!

This is what I switched my puppy onto shortly after bringing her home, and she's been on it ever since. She has always had the shiniest and softest coat. It is extremely affordable and nutrient dense. I only need to feed my 67lb dog 2 cups a day. Now that she's an adult I sometimes buy small bags of other FirstMate flavors to mix in, but this will always be her base food.

This is magical food! After 2 years of trying 15 different dog foods to combat loose stools, gas, and bad breath (teeth are clean) I came across the FirstMate Grain Free Lamb kibble. I just did a complete sudden switch and within 48 hours these symptoms stopped!! Not only that but my dog is absolutely wild about it! Its as though he knows this is not your run of the mill mass produced dog food. WE are ecstatic! Franky will be on this for life!

We switched our dogs onto FirstMate Wild Pacific Caught Fish & Oats meal when searching for a food that was both affordable and high quality. Having 20 sled dogs, we must be able to feed a dog food that they all love and thrive on, and I am happy to say that since day one FirstMate was just that for us!

We did a lot of research on the proper ingredients to feed our dogs, and we love the ingredients in FM. I do have 1 dog with a sensitivity to chicken, but the chicken fat in FirstMate food is free of chicken protein, so it does not cause a reaction, and she, too, does great on the food!

Thank you so much for making a high-quality, limited ingredient food that my dogs love! I will continue to recommend this brand to anyone who asks for recommendations on high-quality dog food!

My furry family of 3 dogs and 2 cats eat almost exclusively FirstMate products. I work at a small local pet supply store (the Moab Barkery). The FirstMate/ KASIKS/ SKOKI Products are by far my favorite that we carry. Not only do my babies love the variety of flavors, but our customers can always find something that meets the needs of their companions. The 12.2 oz cat food cans are so handy when you feed a mostly wet food diet to your cats.

Lucy has a variety of allergies (chicken, wheat) so the blueberry lamb is perfect for her and she likes it. She is 12 years old but acts like a pup. We know that providing Lucy with a healthy nutritious diet has contributed greatly to her longevity. Thanks for making such a high quality dog food!

Callie is a 12 year old Landseer Newfoundland dog who has been feasting on FirstMate dog food for about 10 years now. This is the only dog food Callie has eaten since my friend Steve at Market Pets in Kilworth (just outside of London ON) first recommended it to us. You are probably aware that Newfoundland dogs' normal life span is only 8-10 years, and I believe FirstMate is a major part of her longevity. Callie is still healthy though she has a few aches and pains; but nothing that keeps her from 2+ walks a day and several playtimes. We (Callie and I) just thought you would like to know that we truly appreciate the quality of FirstMate dog food.

I was on the hunt for food for my 15 YO cat Mu (MEW) and your rep had a table outside of Western Farm Feed Store in Santa Rosa, California. He gave me a sample of your Chicken Meal With Blueberries Formula for Cats and said it was good for finicky kitties. I didn't think much about it after that except I left in on the counter in the kitchen thinking I would try to see if Mu would eat it in the future. Well fast forward to the next morning and Mu had DESTROYED the package. There wasn't a morsel left. I couldn't find the discount coupon that your rep had given me but I drove back to Santa Rosa and bought a bag. This stuff is like kitty crack! He LOVES it. Thank you for creating something that a cat actually likes. I have to go get another bag. I'm going to try you wet food too.

Tyler loves the Cage-free Chicken & Rice Formula for Dogs. He has intermittent IBS, and eats a prescription food—which he does well with. Still, every now and then he has an episode. When he does, I’d give him boiled chicken and rice, then as it improved, I introduce a bland diet from another brand.

At one point, my store didn’t have that brand and recommended your product. As soon as I opened your product I liked it. Although it too is ‘pate,’ there is more moisture/broth than other products. He really likes it.

It also seems to have improved his coat, which tended to be dry and brittle. Now it is glossy and soft. So now, I mix in about 3 tablespoons with his dry food every meal. He can’t wait for me to put it down.

I hope you don’t change the formula or sell to any ‘well known’ companies. Your product is great and I am glad I discovered it for Tyler.

I've been looking for a dry food that he would like, and it's not been easy let me tell you. He already loves all your Tuna and Salmon Limited Ingredient wet food so I was able to get a sample size of your Indoor Cat Formula and he started eating it as soon as I set it down. Thanks for caring about our littlest family members.

Puti came to us as a stray. He had dry flaky skin and itched continually. He had been on a very cheap cat food. I read that limited ingredients may treat his food intolerance. It sure did! The problem is he’s never liked his food. I saw your brand had sample packets for free to take home to my cat to try . What an ingenious idea! I took all three home, put them in separate bowls, lined up them up and let him make the decision. He sniffed all three and hands-down he picked the duck. I can tell he is very happy now! Thank you, you have a great product. I love that it doesn’t smell strong. Can’t even tell when you put it out in the dish.

Hello, Luna and Finn have been eating FM for 2 years now. I rotate between the Ocean Fish and Lamb formulas to offer them the benefits of the different proteins. It took me months to find a food suitable for both of them, and thankfully, I came across this incredible brand! FirstMate keeps it simple! Anyone can easily read and understand their ingredient panel. High quality protein, all the vitamins and minerals they need to be healthy and thrive. Plus, the fact that I have 2 big dogs and that I don’t have to feed them as much as compared to other brands, it is another aspect that differentiates FM from the rest. I wish more pet parents/owners, would know about this brand. Thank you FirstMate!

Ella loves KASIKS turkey wet food! She is a 4 year old, Canadian, domestic calico female cat who was diagnosed with IBD a year ago; in addition, she tends to develop urinary struvite crystals. As per our vet, she is on prednisolone and hydrolyzed protein kibble (urinary formula). She stabilized so the vet said we could add wet food meat protein to her diet. All 'gums' are discouraged from cats with IBD. She loves her new gum free food; after each time she eats, she looks like she died and went to heaven. We are new to this brand and are ecstatic to safely add this food to supplement her restricted diet. Our other cat Gracie, 15 years old, super picky, loves it too! Excellent product and company - thanks so much.

I've been feeding Aya two Canadian cat food brand on and off depending on availability of big bag of First Mate at my local store. To keep a long story short, I recently moved into an apartment and had opened bags from both brands at the same time. Tonight Aya asked me to follow her and to my surprise she walked past her bowl of food to the pantry and rubbed her face against the bag of First Mate Chicken and Blueberry formula. Ok I get it, silly human.

The journey began many years ago when our cat, Miles, began having chronic diarrhea and licking fur off in various spots causing himself to bleed because he was so itchy. Veterinarians suggested different prescription diets, most of which did not help or fixed one problem but not the other, not to mention extremely expensive. I also felt like Miles was constantly hungry on these types of foods. He was a very uncomfortable kitty, and I was at a loss of how to help him.

After a lot of trial and error, I pinpointed his allergies to poultry and pea protein. The poultry allergy is severe. I looked extensively on the internet for something that would work. I stumbled on your brand and figured I had nothing to lose for my poor guy. Here we are 4 or 5 months later and he is happy and healthy!!! No diarrhea or itching, and the fur has grown back. He is back to his healthy weight and purrs so much more. My cat is a cat again!

Knowing that the cat licks the dog bowls if I forget to pick them up immediately, I knew I needed to switch my dogs over to a poultry/pea protein-free diet. Although my 10 year-old Italian Greyhound does not have any food aversions, I got her the Pacific Ocean Fish Senior to avoid poultry. My 15 month-old French Bulldog has had several ear infections since she was a puppy, and she was very gassy on a poultry diet, so I switched her over to Pacific Ocean Fish Small Bites. NO more gas, no ear infections or dirty ears, and both dogs have beautiful, soft, shiny coats. They also have very healthy stools.

Every animal in my house is finally happy and healthy. The food is extremely high quality. We are never switching to another brand! We are a First Mate pet family!!! I’m looking forward to having the animals try some of your canned food at some point. Thank you, First Mate, for providing the BEST nutrition for cats and dogs. I can not say enough about how wonderful your products are, and have suggested them to different French Bulldog fb groups, as it seems to be a very food-sensitive breed. For the best nutrition, digestion, and overall health of your pets, First Mate is the #1 choice in my humble opinion.

How did your pet like it?
I purchased two cans (one cage free chicken formula and one turkey formula) on 10/26 at a local Mudbay retailer. We introduced him to the chicken formula at dinner with his dry food (his dry food a certain brand we always use, and we use different wet food brands/ types) sadly Jamie did not take to the chicken formula and did not eat it (we put it out for him twice and both times after investigating he avoided the wet food and his bowl entirely) I did notice when I opened that can that the pate was separated and broken, with a lot of liquid in the can-not sure if this is normal for this type of pate? Overall not the best food experience for us.

I just wanted to write to let you know how happy we are with your dog food. Our dog had developed allergies to the food that we had her on for a couple of years. She was vomiting multiple times a day, refusing all food, losing weight and lethargic. Our vet wasn't sure what to do. We had tried a couple other brands and she wouldnt go near them. Then someone at our local global pet foods suggested first mate. She sniffed it and immediately started gobbling it down. I was so so so relieved. She has put back on the 8 lbs that she lost (shes a 100lb gsd) and has her energy back. Her vomiting has completely stopped and she gets excited when she hears her bowl being filled, something I don't think I have ever seen in her. We are so happy to have found first mate.

Thanks for making a great product for our fur baby.

Luckily, I found Britton Feed & Seed who I have been purchasing my dog food from for years. In the past, I have been on other dog foods that my dogs have had issues with. The staff at this store directed me to your dog food. All 4 of my dogs have been eating your Chicken Meal and Oats formula for years. Their coats are shiny and luxurious, their eyes are bright and all very healthy.

Your dog food has been a staple in my house for years and will continue to be so for as long as you continue to make this wonderful food. It is a pleasure to tell you thank you for what you do. It makes a HUGE difference for my pack.

For most of his adult life, Carlyle had suffered from various medical ailments including Inflammatory Bowel Disease and pancreatitis which contributed to a very low quality of life. He would struggle with nausea, vomiting and other GI issues. He would often have bouts of vomiting so severe that he would need to be rushed to the vet for subQ or IV fluids due to dehydration. Over the years I have tried many so-called "high quality" pet foods, including prescription diets. Additionally, he was prescribed numerous medications to address the symptoms, but nothing seemed to provide any long-term relief. I was so distraught by what the vets were telling me about his medical condition and his overall prognosis. I've been in tears on many occasions, so worried about my boy's medical issues and not being able to do something to make him feel better.

That all changed in 2017 when I was introduced to FirstMate at a pet store in the Bay Area. I was a bit skeptical at first, but did my research and was very impressed as I learned more about your company, your values, and how you make your pet food. Finally! A company that really cared about providing the best nutrition for our furry companions.

The difference in Carlyle since switching to FirstMate is astonishing. He (we) have literally gotten our lives back! His overall health has improved immensely. He's a totally different cat. He's playful again, his eyes are brighter, his fur is shinier, he's gained weight, and many other positives that I didn't believe were possible. As I write this he is contentedly snuggled against me on the couch. Oh...and he purrs and trills all the time now!

I'm attaching one of his favorite photos so you can see what a beautiful boy he is!

Thanks again for all that you do for our pets. It is greatly appreciated!

Murdock is my competition sport dog, as well as an active companion and some occasional showing. With all the conflicting research and stances on pet food over the past few years I was extremely stressed trying to find a food that was healthy, Canadian, and included grain still. About a year ago I started feeding FirstMate Fish & Oats. I’m so glad I did and haven’t turned back since.

Murdock LOVES the food and I can feel happy and comfortable feeding it to him. His fur is always soft and shiny and he never gets that “doggy smell” to him. We get complimented on his coat and fitness/weight all the time and I’m always proud to say that he (and my pet dog and working detection dog now too!) is powered by FirstMate!

From nosework, Lure Coursing, Dock diving, obedience, and shows to doing tricks to hiking and swimming and exploring Beautiful British Columbia, FirstMate has always given Murdock the nutrition and energy he needs to be with me every step of the way!

My husky Koda was always a picky eater, and when I first got him at 2 months old it made my life very hard.. after hundreds of dollars spent on food alone I finally thought I found something that he liked until it made him sick because of a major ingredients change... I was worried that I would be stuck in the same boat I was when he was much younger not being able to find him something he would love. he refused to eat for days until I was recommended KASIKS Wild Pacific fish meal. Seeing him eat again for the first time in a week was huge weight lifted from my shoulder. it's been a few months now and he's going strong, a lot of weird problems I noticed with his old food are no longer there and when I called customer support to ask a question about buying the food when I'm on vacation with my husky I was greeted right away by a human and quickly given information. This company is everything a dog food manufacturing company should be! I'm proud to be a customer and I'm happy my dog is a whole lot healthier. Thank you first mate for a great product you have a customer for life!

My 7 year old Sheltie (Bentley) with hip dysplasia was poisoned in August and subsequently developed an allergy to chicken. Finding food he could tolerate was an exasperating experience. He could not tolerate several foods suggested by our vet.

Watching Bentley suffer and waste away was breaking our hearts. After several dead ends seeking food he could tolerate, we heard about First Mate from our local Global Pet Foods store and contacted them.

Tyler at First Mate suggested First Mate Pacific Ocean Fish Meal. Our beloved dog loves it and, more importantly, is thriving on it. Bentley is so much better and every day we see an improvement in him.

Thank you First Mate and Tyler for helping us find food for our dear Bentley.

Mickey (black and white) will be 15 on September 3, 2018 and Chandler (ginger/peach) will be 2 on February 28, 2019. Mickey has hyperthyroidism and is a very picky eater and it's hard to find a food he enjoys AND didn't get bored of. Chandler is pretty easy going in the food department and generally hasn't met a meal he didn't enjoy... However, with their last wet food, BOTH of them left food in the bowl which went to waste. I spoke to the people at Global Pet Foods and they recommended FirstMate, I bought a few cans to try and Mickey and Chandler love it!!! They gobbled it all up with no leftovers in the bowl...Mickey was equally excited to eat FirstMate the second time around. It's nice to see them excited about food. I can't seem to get it into the bowl fast enough, they both cry while waiting for me to feed them...I love that. After a couple of days, Mickey already has more pep in his step. I also love that the food is healthy and made in Canada.

Peanit loves it! and she gets bored of stuff fast. She is a 8lb Yorkie who recently turned 7. By the age of 6 we noticed she was having lots of reactions to food, we tried many out, did vet diets, elimination diets, etc. It was tiring for us, but must have been frustrating for Peanit. I decided to try her on the FirstMate Salmon Wet Food. Not only did she love it, but by day three we noticed results, as in her rashes not being so red, her ears were not super red anymore, no runny eyes, and eventually her ear infections slowly disappeared. She was doing so well for two months that we decided to take her off her allergy medication from the vet.

Here she is after about three months of eating it and she is doing fabulous! No breakouts, no red ears, no runny eyes and no more ear infections.

I work at a pet food store, and I have told other customers about this, and last week had someone come back for more! I 110% am in love with this food and recommend to everyone, not just those who's pets are struggling with allergies.

P.S my malamute wolf also loves this, its not fair for Peanit to get it and for Mama not to.

My pup has had renal issues since 7 months old. It’s been breaking me in half . The docs gave him months to live. I tried prescription food but he would not eat it. I then began an extensive research looking for high-quality food with Low Phosphorous. Well, FirstMate's Pacific Ocean Fish Original has the lowest on the commercial market that I could find.

Phoenix is now 28 months old (2 yrs 4 months). I pray for 10-15 years with him and doing all I can. He has undergone stem cell therapy in NYC at AMC hospital. He see’s Dr. Jiu Jia Wen (Eastern/Western Vet) in South Hampton NY. He is known as the miracle vet online and in the area. Phoenix is the most well-known lab on

When he introduced himself to me, he changed my life. My job has me under some tough situations where I must engage violent scenarios. I even faced an active shooter and a stabbing event while on duty.

Phoenix allowed me to see there is more to life than work and no matter what there is always room for play.

I wanted to share this story with you because your product is a big part of maintaining Phoenix’s health.

I thank you for creating a product that is supportive to all dogs health

Ranger hasn't eaten all his food in months, he would pick at it then leave it and his poops weren't great. After switching to this (faster than I should have but he wouldn't eat any of the old kibble left in the bowl) he is now after 2 days having great poops, no gas and is eating all his food without leaving the bowl! I am very happy with this product and have already recommended it to friends dealing with similar problems

I am in shock! I have been feeding my puppy the same "what I thought was top shelf" dog food for almost the past year. He has never been food driven and have always had to add extra stuff to get him to eat it. I decided to switch foods to FirstMate due to the high quality of protein and the first 5 ingredients. Dolce immediately ate every bit of his food the minute I put it down and seems to love it! So far I have had no digestive issues and I am just thrilled that he loves it!

When we got our first dog 10 years ago I did a bunch of research choosing the food. I chose FirstMate for a variety reasons... 10 years later we add to the pack with a puppy and my partner decides to change food to what the puppy trainer uses (Acana).

About three months later I am left wondering why my Springers beautifully rich liver coloured coat is fading and he always looks tired. I started thinking this puppy has not only aged us but him too... and then the lightbulb went on.

I am happy to say Coops is back on FirstMate and already his coat and energy levels are improving!!! And of course Fil the puppy is on FM for pups now too. Seriously impressed and grateful. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!

I just re read this and it totally sounds cheesy but it's all true.

He has been diagnosed with epilepsy and has been on phenol since he was 2 (he is 14 now). I am so glad I found out about your canned diets.

Ziggy loves his food along with his siblings. Ziggy used to have seizures, about one a month it was heartbreaking and hard to see him go through, he's a now 5.5 lb chihuahua min pin. Unfortunately he wasn't on the greatest dog food for most of his life weighing in at only 4 lbs, he would get allergy attacks and sicknesses a lot and it was terrible for him.

Up until 3 years ago when I switched him to FirstMate Chicken and Blueberries Small Bites. His seizures, allergies and sicknesses have all stopped and were both so happy! We would like to thank you for supplying such a good food for him!

Ray is 5 years old now and he has only ever been on grade A dog food. (Halo, Welness, Blue Buffalo, Natural Balance) But he always ended up getting stomach issues and would just stop eating the food. It got so bad last month I had to take him to the ER because he was just so uncomfortable and throwing up constantly. He doesn't eat clothes or dog toys. Just very sensitive to food and treats. I went to the local pet store here in Wilsonville to ask for her recommendation. She turned me on to you guys, and OMG what a difference. Even when my dog was sick he would be happy and affectionate but now! WOAH he cannot wait to eat his food. he hasn't been sick at all. and even when he would usually get sick and throw up (from me coming home he gets way to excited and starts coughing and sometimes throws up.) he held it back because I think he likes your food so much lol. Him being this happy makes me very happy and I just wanted to say thank you for making this food! Happy I have so much confidence that this is the food he wants and will be healthy with!
