FirstMate Pet Foods, British Columbia’s only dry pet food company, remains unique in a rapidly growing. As the first company to develop a Grain Free option in 1995, their commitment to moderate protein levels and simple ingredient panel has made for a product line that promotes increased digestion while reducing the likelihood of food allergies or stomach upset.
FirstMate offers a range of single protein options using natural and regional ingredients. These diets are rich in omega 3 & 6 fatty acids to promote skin and joint health, antioxidants for immune system strength and much needed fibre for better digestion. As a family owned and operated manufacturer, originally established in 1989, FirstMate has increased control over the quality of their ingredients and manufacturer processes. Unlike companies that outsource their manufacturing FirstMate has full control over their products from beginning to end.
One of their most distinctive features is their Vacuum Infusion System (VIS). The VIS enables FirstMate to add heat sensitive nutrients, often added prior to cooking, at the very last stage of manufacturing. This ensures that they are useable in the finished product!
