    Transition Instructions

    When switching your dog's diet, we recommend that it be done gradually over a 5 - 7 day period.


    Why do your products appear different at times?

    Our products contain natural ingredients without the addition of artificial coloring or binders. As a result, you may note variation in the appearance of our products between batches.

    Chicken Fat and Chicken Allergies:

    Our bodies and our pet’s bodies react differently with proteins and fats. An allergy is caused by the bodies reaction with the protein of what we’ve come in contact with. Our chicken fat is free of chicken protein and will therefore not cause a reaction for those animals with a chicken allergy.

    Do you use GMO ingredients?

    No, FirstMate and do not contain GMO ingredients.

    What is a meal? How does it compare to a fresh meat?

    Chicken meal is a concentrated source of chicken protein in which most of the moisture and some of the fat has been removed. Meals such as these provide nearly 4 times more protein than the fresh ingredients.|
