I remember that my dog’s hair became super shiny when I got him a small bag of Acana, high 70%protein meadowbrook more than a year ago. He’s been eating chicken and mixed grain for a while, and I still have to mix the half portion with the new. Otherwise his number 2 becomes too soft. I’m not sure if it’s the new food with some animal organs that may produce more DHEA than chicken and rice formula. It’s just my suspicion because my chihuahua mix has been very aggressive. He’s barking at other dogs way more loudly and it’s a lot harder to stop him from barking at them. I feel like I need to order more of his old food and maybe only mix 20% of his new High protein ones.
I purchased this food for my dogs because of the ingredients and the reviews, terrible choice. My dogs were reluctant to eat it then my older dog started throwing up and couldn’t hold anything down, including water. I took him to the vet. After over a thousand dollars I was informed it was pancreatitis. I wasn’t sure it was the food until my younger dog started throwing up everything with the same prognosis from the vet. I won’t be using this brand again.
That’s what my dogs say Can’t get enough of this food And their poop looks good ! I recommend
I love the quality of this dog food. My dog, however, prefers their Meadowland - mostly chicken - to the beef. So in future I will stick with Meadowland.
staple - dog loves this nice mix and quantity of proteins - mix with Orijen Regional Red
My three senior standard poodles are incredibly picky eaters. I rotate every bag with a different flavor and brand. Acana and Orijen grain-free formulas are consistently acceptable to the three of them, and the Appalachian Ranch formula seems to be a particular favorite so it’s a regular in the rotation for now.
My do loves this dog food we use it as a topper and she always eats every bit of it thanks chewy for always having a great variety of pet supplies you rock
I have used this for my dogs in rotation with one other Acana and two other brands. I am always happy with this food, my dogs love it plus their good health shows. My 8 year old just had her yearly exam and all bloodwork is perfect and her energy is great. My 4 year old is doing great also.
I recently made a commitment to feed my two picky eaters the healthiest dog food I could find that they liked--without breaking the bank! Raw, freeze-dried, and air-dried foods, while offering great nutrition and taste, were way too expensive. So my goal then became to find the best affordable kibble. I did my research and looked at the ingredients in dozens of well-known dog foods brands. And in the end I discovered that hands down, Acana Appalachian Ranch has the best canine nutrition at its price point on the market. The top three ingredients are beef, pork, and lamb. Next three ingredients are protein-rich lamb, beef, and pork meal. No meat by-products (i.e., ground up heads, feet, necks, and feathers), no corn, wheat, or soy (aka, cheap fillers with empty calories), and no artificial colors or preservatives (suspected carcinogens). And the frosting on the cake is that Acana kibble is covered with freeze-dried meat, which most dogs go crazy over! I usually top off my dogs' food with beef bone broth to add moisture and sometimes add some canned dog food as a treat to up their protein even more. So happy that I finally decided to look into what I had been feeding my babies--because I learned that grocery stores are filled with low-quality dog kibble, including heavily advertised brands that claim to keep our dogs healthy when the truth is they are packed with cheap fillers with little nutrition. Dogs need protein, not corn! And the good news is Acana Appalachian Ranch is no more expensive than many of those "premium" national brands we've been buying for years because we didn't know any better! My dogs love Acana Appalachian Ranch. No more picky eaters! They're happy and mama's happy. Everybody wins!
Both of my picky eaters love this and aren't stinking up the house with gas anymore!
