This company is known for producing high quality food for high energy/working dogs. So the calories have always been an issue until now. I am so happy they finally offered a reasonable calorie food with grains and simple but unique ingredients. At just 372 cal/cup I am happy feeding my girl this Duck with heart healthy grains. Her coat is shiny and her urine is not only NOT burning the grass it's making it more green than the rest of the grass!! Love the food.
I feed my dogs a combination of kibble and wet human grade food. Being mini dachshunds, they are all about eating all the time. So I have to feed food that’s nutritious but also lean. They love this kibble.
My little Jack Russell pups love this food. I wanted a food that had healthy grains and limited ingredients that would help with my pups allergies. After trying many different brands, Acana Duck and Pumpkin has checked all the boxes! Less itchiness and beautiful shiny coats! We are very pleased.
We have 2 dogs in our household. The eleven year old is allergic to many foods and grasses and has been on several limited ingredient dog foods. Both of my dogs eat the same food and both like this one. My vet recommended pumpkin for fiber and duck is one of the few proteins that is advised.
My German Shepherd suffers from horrible skin allergies, so much so that he will bite himself raw. It's been painful to watch. I've tried so many dog foods and, with the suggestion of my vet that we stay away from chicken and beef, along with not wanting to buy prescription food, I finally feel like I found a food that works! He likes it and his allergies have not flared up with this food. The kibble is small for a 120 lb shepherd, but I'll gladly pick up kibble off the floor than watch my baby suffer.
We struggled on and off for 2 years to find a food that my chocolate lab could eat that would not upset his stomach, we even tried prescription diets but unsuccessfully. Finally our vet recommended a single protein, grain inclusive diet that did NOT include peas, potatoes or other legumes and so I found acana ancient grains! This duck and pumpkin formula has been a saving grace! Within the first week we noticed an improvement in our dogs energy as well as his poops! The most solid poops he’s ever had and we’ve never gone back! The price is high, especially since the price went up but worth it in my opinion. We tried the lamb and pumpkin as well but learned lamb isn’t a protein our dog can have. 5 stars for sure!!
My dog likes it but it was out of stock when we needed it so we had o order the duck and pear.
My dog is allergic to so many foods. This food has none of her trigger foods and she likes it. Thanks to the Chewy associate who patiently helped me find it.
Both my dogs enjoy this food, but they are not picky eaters - I've never found a dog food they didn't like! In researching dog foods, this one meets my requirements: limited ingredient, pea-free, no wheat, no soy, no corn. ARCANA has high quality ingredients - better than most. However, it is VERY EXPENSIVE. Natural Balance L.I.D. has the same first 2 ingredients (duck and duck meal), meets my same requirements, and is $30 cheaper for a 24 pound bag. I think ARCANA is slightly better quality, but IMO it's not worth the added cost.
We have struggled to dianose the source of our lab mix's skin allergies since he was a pup. I've tried so many different foods, but he continued to scratch and lick himself. I have suspected he has environmental allergies in addition to food, but after using this for more than six months, his allergies have disappeared. His coat is super shiny, he no longer looks like he had dandruff, and his stools are small and firm. It did give him awful gas for the first few weeks, but that is gone now. We have tried the wholesome grains lamb, fish, and duck, but the duck seems to be his favorite. I do like how I can rotate them so he doesn't get bored. Yes, it's expensive, especially considering my boy is 101 pounds, but due to the very high quality of this food, I feed him less than previous brands and he still leaves food behind in his bowl. After struggling for years, this is a winner for us. The cost is totally worth it, and much cheaper than a trip to the vet to treat his skin!
