What pet food brands are Trusted Canadian options?


Satori is the first and only Domestic Appropriate pet food on the market, made right here in Canada since 2010. Our healthy recipes have a logical philosophy which considers two important factors, the pet’s anatomy and modern lifestyle. Canines and Felines, like the wolf and wildcat, have digestive systems designed to efficiently process meat therefore our recipes are grain free and include fresh proteins! We then took it a step further by understanding that pets’ caloric needs are not the same as their wild ancestors since they do not travel 20-25km per day hunting and chasing down prey. Our pets instead have the luxury of their food being served to them and exercise through less demanding forms by enjoying regular walks or visiting the dog park. These differences are the reason we adjusted the nutrition to fit their domestic lifestyle which consists of living in houses and backyards.

All of our natural recipes have been formulated by an experienced Animal Nutritionist with following education and credentials:
• Hons BSc Animal Biology, Minor in Nutrition
• MSc in Animal Nutrition
• 10+ years experience in Formulation, Ingredient Sourcing, Product Development and Quality Assurance

To contribute significantly to the health of our dogs and cats by manufacturing and marketing food according to government standards established for human nutrition, both in terms of the quality of the ingredients and the manufacturing process.

CaniSource was not originally created to solve a specific problem with dogs. After understanding how the pet food industry works, we decided to do something completely different: Use only ingredients approved for human consumption and try to preserve as many nutrients as possible by using an innovative dehydration process.

The logic was that if we could execute these two requirements well, our pets would be healthier. We could never have predicted that the results would be so impressive. The benefits that our customers tell us are the result of all our work. These two requirements are the very foundation of our company and will always remain at the heart of all our future projects.

Another cornerstone of our philosophy is our working method. CaniSource has always developed its processes and formulations based on results. We realized that there are a lot of prejudices in the industry as well as a lot of contradictory information.

As a result of our commitment and experience, we have successfully supported thousands of pet owners across Canada and around the world. It's extremely gratifying to hear from people that are amazed, thrilled and committed to feeding this way. 

Over the years, we have prepared and trialed many variations of "natural" diets. Some were learning experiences and others were just too complicated. At Carnivora, we decided we didn't want use "by-products" and we didn't want to follow the pet food industry standards by using a recipe or formulation based on nutritional assumptions or "science". Instead, we wanted to provide a diet that contained every valuable nutrient available in the neat package of a whole animal. We felt it was important that people not only feed a diet based on a variety of whole animals, but a diet that was tailored toward their dog as an individual. We wanted foods that came from naturally raised, hormone and antibiotic free sources. We wanted to know exactly what the animals were being fed and how they were raised.

You can rest assured that Carna4 recipe formulations and ingredient suppliers are unchanged! Instead, we have made some improvements to production. We’ve upgraded equipment and have moved to a coarser ingredient grind. This efficient, gentler ingredient handling will yield more nutritious and better performing food. Our nuggets are a little more rustic looking now, better reflecting the whole food nutrition that they provide!

Feeding trials conducted before these improvements were implemented showed that most dogs either enjoyed or didn’t notice the changes, but we do know that some may take time to adjust to even these minor differences. For dogs sensitive to change, we’ve found that a packet of our Flora4 Sprouted Seeds toppers can help facilitate transition.
