FirstMate’s Australian Lamb diet uses lamb as a single source novel protein. Its grain free, simplistic design makes it not only ideal for everyday feeding but additionally a great hypoallergenic or elimination formula. A mix of blueberries, raspberries and cranberries not only increase the palatability but offer the benefits of antioxidants such as a healthier immune system, urinary tract, better eyesight and memory function as well as helping to prevent cancer and acting as a nutritional source of dietary fiber.

Our little dog seems quite pleased with our decision. As Naturally Urban doesn't carry Acana products I thought I would try First Mate dry food (Oscar loves their canned food). He has shifted from "getting around to eating" at some point in the day to wolfing down his food (some canned First Mate in one bowl and a half cup of dry mixed with some canned food) as he moves to the door to go out for his first walk in the morning and then again around supper time. He seems to like First Mate better than Acana. And he is doing very well on a First Mate regime.
