First Rate by FirstMate

12 06 2008

Earlier I wrote about local kitty litter, but it’s taken me a while to find a local pet food. I finally found one although it’s local in the regional sense. The plant is located just across the Canadian border in Chilliwack, BC. FirstMate’s ingredients are sourced from Canada, the US and Australia. There is no wheat gluten from China or anything else suspect. The ingredients list is simple and, so far, it has gone over well with our taste tester!

Maija with FirstMate

Naturally, FirstMate also makes cat food and, a little more surprisingly, fish food. Diversification is good. 🙂

I found FirstMate at Walker’s Healthy Pet, but I’ve also seen it at other local independent feed stores. Here is a list of local suppliers.

If you’re curious I was feeding Canine Caviar before which is out of San Diego. Another good food with no imported ingredients. Also for those of you feeding raw, Raw Advantage is from Kettle Falls!
