Family owned and operated since 1989, Firstmate is a Canadian company that takes a great deal of pride in the quality, safety, and performance of their products. They have invested in both a dry production facility and a cannery in British Columbia, Canada to provide a wide array of products so you can introduce variety into your pet’s diet with the assurance that it is made with the best possible products.
The founder of the company, Michael Florian, fished commercially for years for halibut, salmon, and herring. This inspired him to utilize humanely raised and sustainably caught wild fish in his pet food.
FirstMate does not conduct any laboratory research on animals, rather, they evaluate their diets by working with a network of breeders, animal rescue groups, and the team’s own pets. Each product is tested for nutritional properties onsite and with third-party laboratories.
FirstMate’s chicken formula used food-grade, free run chicken. This food is grain free, limited ingredient and makes the perfect diet for everyday feeding or for those with food sensitivities. The turkey formula is also made with food-grade and free run turkey, that can be complemented with the dry formulas. The salmon formula used wild caught salmon sourced from sustainable fisheries, and it is grain free like the rest of FirstMate’s products. The simplicity of these products make it an ideal solution for pets with food allergies or sensitive stomachs.
The unique, delicious products offered by FirstMate along with their beliefs in sustainable fishing practices and sourcing natural, ethical ingredients for their products. Since Firstmate offers products with only natural meats and no preservatives, coloring agents, or thickeners, we are proud to support them by offering their products here at Northwest Pet Supply. You will feel good about buying FirstMate food, and your pet will feel even better about eating it!
