Just wondering why all of my previous notes on the list of foods I had a year or two back are now radically "demoted" in terms of Nutritional Rating? For example, Acana Pacifica used to be 93%, and now (Sept 2023) the same product is 77% - quite the drop!

My dog loved acana until they changed the packaging. Not clear on their website but the receipe is also different. My dog has been poorly since with upset stomach and sickness. She won't eat it now at all. Frustrating that website not clear and store also said it was exactly the same.

We are a bit short of money at the moment taking the hit from the shanghai lockdown so ordered this one. Its 20+ £s cheaper than orijen so thought I'd give it a go, its made by yhe same makers of orijen so was not too worried because my spaniel eats anything.

Actually she won't eat it. I thought it was because of the hot weather. But its loads cooler now. I thought if I don't back down she will eat it because it's all there is. Its been 7 days of just eating enough to get by. Wish I hadnt ordered such a big bag. But the small bags aren't good value for money.

all of this variety have changed ingredients and now have an unnamed “fish oil” and “lake fish” in it and they’ve taken the chondroitin and glucosamine levels off. i think the nutrient panel has also slightly changed. they recently did this to the general “adult dog line” and didn’t tell anyone, when i emailed they didn’t seem bothered, which is odd for champion, who know any change in recipe should be told in advance to dog owners.

thought you should be aware

Would this diet be good for a pug? He is 7kg want to give him the best. Recently his skin has become all red and itchy. Seen that this is hypoallergenic. Just not too sure on the carbs and fat though. Any recommendations would be fantastic.

FRESH & RAW, THE ACANA WAY!
FRESH: Our fresh ingredients meet the AAFCO standard: REFRIGERATION AS THE SOLE METHOD OF PRESERVATION.
RAW: AAFCO offers a variety of raw definitions, we use only one; OUR RAW INGREDIENTS ARE AS OUR FRESH, THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THEY ARE FROZEN.

SO, WHY DO YOU TELL US THAT IS Dry extruded complete FOOD??????????

Hi Dana. Acana does use a lot of fresh ingredients but it then extrudes them to form a dry biscuit. You can find more information on extrusion and other forms of pet food here: https://www.allaboutdogfood...

WARNING TO ALL FEEDING ACANA DOG FOOD:I am disgusted with the lack of quality in production and packaging of Acana's dog food. I have been feeding my dog the Acana Heritage food for the last year.From the large breed puppy food we pulled out a large chunk of burnt kibble from the bottom of their oven. Six months ago we found a small chunk of what looked like silicone or packaging glue in the adult large breed food. It wasn't much bigger than a kibble and could have easily been eaten by our dog if we had not discovered it. Today we found an 8 inch long strip of electrical tape in the food. We will be switching our dog to another manufacturers food immediately.If you choose to feed your dog Champion dog food be sure to inspect it thoroughly before doing so. You don't know what kind of unexpected surprises you just might find in it.

I tried a number of high protein diets for my dogs and this really is the best for a large breed dog (adult weight 42kg). The balance of protein 60:40 is perfect and my dogs fur is soft and they are so much happier on this food. It's great for my puppy too who has been plagued with sensitive tummies. I highly recommend Acana regionals

is there anywhere that I can get a trial amount to feed our 2 dogs 1 a cross beagle/jack russell and 2 a shi tzu I really do not want to pay any enormous amount if they then do not like this

My dog loved this food and his sensitive tummy agreed with it too. only stopped buying as couldn't get small bags of it for a while (have a jack russel cross and like to keep it fresh) and moved to orijen which was much easier to get here in uk. Grasslands was the winner in our household. Highly recomended

Had my boxer dog on Orijen adult , but it seemed to make her sick ( it was 80/20)..
So I gradually changed it to Acana regionals (prairie), it's 60/40. She is doing better on this, and it shows ( coat is shiny and skin problem on belly is better).
