I love your canned foods. My LARGE dog was recently diagnosed with lymphoma and we’re going through chemo with him. I checked on the best diet for him and I was told he should eat more protein and minimal carbohydrates. He had already been losing interest in his kibble anyway so I started trying several good quality canned dog foods. FirstMate is the only food he will eat now, other than food I cook for him. He’s been able to maintain weight even through his chemotherapy so far.
Thank you so much for these great canned foods.

I work with a rescue group and have a home of hospice hounds, mostly rescues from puppy mills, small and very old. I love them and the ability to give them first class attention and food. Most have no teeth so I use all canned. This morning they dove into their first taste of this food and really loved it!!!!!! I get my dog food shipped and did have to discard a few dented cans but know that cannot be helped. The cases come well protected but then in shipping, who knows with the handling? I will continue to purchase First Mate as it is truly First Class!!!!! Many thanks for having this great product!
Really had high hopes foe this as my service dog liked the first 2 cans. But then we opened another can… found a large string of plastic (like is used to bind packages) on the can of food. I’ve tried to contact First Mate and tried to send pictures, but there is NO CUSTOMER SERVICE. I will post everywhere that the manufacturer does not care about quality control or customer relations.

Love this food recommended by my local shelter but I really wish they would change their labelling material as it is very difficult to remove and not environmentally friendly. For a company that seems to value humane food production it’s a bit surprising they do not use more environmentally friendly packaging.
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience using our canned chicken formula.
You will be happy to know that our labels are a foil laminate and can be left on the cans to be recycled.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any additional questions.

Our picky allergy dog loves his food!!! This is the only food that he’ll eat that doesn’t cause stomach or skin issues.
