So I had never heard of this food before, and then found out about it at the vets office, now I have always been sketchy about vet recommended food so I looked it up on dog food adviser and it has a 5 star rating and is a very good food as far as I can say, I have been feeding Blue Buffalo to both my dogs but now finding out about this food.......it has a better rating then Blue and for some reason is much cheaper!!!! Needless to say I have switched my dogs, has anyone else ever fed this food, any thought or comments on it?

Both of my dogs are currently on it.

Lizzie, my 5 year old Chihuahua has been on it for a while and is doing GREAT on it.

I just switched Rain to it, from Solid Gold Wolfcub and she is also doing amazing on it! She is on Acana Pacifica at the moment. On SG she had tons of eye boogers and now they are completely gone snoopy

Excellent food with locally farmed, top notch ingredients.

We fed raw for 2 years, but now lack the time to prepare it, so the dogs eat Acana. Their coats are shiny, their skin is healthy, their stool is above average and they stay lean and muscular.

Another paws up here! I rotate between Pacifica, Wild Prairie & Ranchlands. The dogs love it, do well on it & the company, Champion Foods has always promptly responded to emails.

I hope your kitty gets better... hug

That said, my dogs were switched to Acana a couple of years ago as the go-to dog food when I can't afford raw. Needless to say, it's made a few hours from where I live, it's extremely healthy, and yeah, it's a great company. I'm surprised a Vet recommended it though - I'm used to them recommending whatever they have in their Vet offices. That said, when I swapped Charlie to Acana, he went from having seizures one to three times a month, to once every three or four months. Great improvement if you ask me, and keeps him from having to be medicated! smile

The only frustrating part is that they had an oven go down on them due to a fire in a kitchen back in September, and are only just getting back to 100% production while they fill back-orders and whatnot(I work in a pet shop that gets updates from them), so other than the frustrations of being shorted on food from time to time and having to search for it, I love the food, and I love the company.

Wow that's great you found it cheaper than Blue Buffalo. I'm just now getting ready to start one of my dogs on Blue Buffalo and when I looked into Acana it's like $10 more a bag here. Glad you got it for a good price way to go

Actually Charlie, my vet was just telling me about that fire!!!
And yes not only did my recommend it, it is one of the foods they carry in their vet office, so I just buy it there now. They have both puppy Acana and adult and also they carry Orejen there. The adult food is about $10.00 cheaper then Blue Buffalo but the puppy food is about the same as blue in price.
Thank you for the warm wishes for my kitty, he seems to be on the right track now, although he has to regain his bladder control as he is dribbling everywhere, but anyways I suppose this is dogster not catster huh? BOL He has just been on my mins a lot lately with what he is going through.
That is great about the seizures....it's amazing what a quality food can do for your pets, I dont think a lot of people realize what a difference it does really make!

I am so glad to hear that everybody else thinks this is a great food to. My thoughts exactly when I read the ingredients, I dont know why I never heard of it before? Never seen it in any pet stores or anything, so when my vet showed it to me, as I said I didn't take it right away because I know they tend to push whatever they carry, but more research proved it is a great food so I took it, and I am glad, they love it to!
