Your Dog is Unique!

Just like humans every dog is different when it comes to their dietary needs, this means your pets feeding requirements will vary depending on their breed, environment, age and activity. The below table and the information on the bag is to be used as a starting point, it is important to monitor your dogs weight and adjust their rations as needed. 

As it takes time for your dogs digestive system to adapt to the different nutrient levels in a new food it is important to transition your dog correctly from one food to the next to reduce the chance of your pet having an upset stomach. We suggest you take 7 days to transition your dog from the old food to the new food. Start with the majority of the old food and a small amount of the new food on day one and slowly increase the proportion of the new food while decreasing the old food until you are feeding 100% of the new food on day 7. 

We also recommend feeding your dog twice daily and ensure that your dog always has fresh, clean water available to drink. 

Serve dry or slightly moistened.  To help maintain freshness, we recommend sealing the bag tightly and storing it in a cool, dry location

I am a massive fan of Acana dog food as its biologically accurate, so it contains minimal grains. This one has oats in it but they're okay for dogs, and lots of fruits and botanical inclusions that are helping my puppy's digestion and improving his coat. Acana has made a huge difference in my puppy already! It's expensive, yes, BUT it's actually cheaper than brands like Eukanuba!

Bottom Line

Yes, I'd recommend this product to a friend

I have originaly been using orijen but adding another rescue to my pack I had too look at other food options allowing the same quality and whole foods as orijen have been providing to my dogs for the last 10 months but at a cheaper price. I came across acana as it is still made by the same people as orijen the reason for the cheaper price on acana is because it has grain in the form of oats, I was hesitant at first to try it as my dogs have never had fillers/grains before, So after trying it it provides my dogs the same benifits shiny coat no skin problems and nice firm poop, I would recommend acana to any one who is wanting the same benefits as orijen just at a cheaper price :)

When we picked our puppy up from the breeder she had been on Science Diet and the breeder told us she was a picky eater. We got her home and had trouble getting her to eat anything, our cats had been on Acana so decided to buy a small bag of the Heritage Puppy to try, we gradually added it to the Science Diet and from the moment we put in just 10% Acana the food vanished. She is fully on Acana now and is very excited at dinner time no more refusing to eat. I love that it's a quality food and grain free, she is now thriving and full of beans (or Acana :)) I have also noticed since the change that her poos are more solid, they were runny on Science Diet, so it has also improved digestion. I am very happy with the change and so it seems is the puppy. I've ticked good value and expensive which may seem odd, it's definately not a cheap food, although there are much pricier ones out there, but it's good quality so value wise is worth paying the extra.

Yes, I'd recommend this product to a friend
