ACANA Wholesome Grains dog food recipes provide balanced canine nutrition, with lots of protein, vegetables and quality grains like whole sorghum, millet and oats. They never use any legumes, gluten, potato or ingredients from corn or wheat.

Go Beyond the 1st Ingredient

With quality proteins like fresh or raw free-run poultry, grass-fed meats, freshwater and saltwater fish, and cage-free eggs, all of ACANA’s recipes are crafted with special care. They go beyond the first ingredient for wholesome goodness, using fresh refrigerated ingredients and raw ingredients frozen at the peak of freshness, with no added soy, corn, tapioca or wheat.

Thoughtfully Crafted from Start to Finish

*Approximate and derived from the unprocessed state of the ingredients.

*Fresh vegetables, fruit and botanicals, plus vitamins, minerals, probiotics and natural preservatives complete the nutritional profile.

*ACANA never adds any artificial flavors, colors or preservatives to their recipes.

ACANA’s Commitment to You

ACANA goes above and beyond in their commitment to quality, with meat-rich, balanced recipes made from carefully sourced ingredients.


The first two ingredients in every recipe are fresh or raw meat, poultry or fish.


ACANA uses a trusted network of farmers, ranchers and fishers to source the wholesome foods for their recipes.


Protein-rich animal ingredients complemented by fresh vegetables, fruit and botanicals provide balanced nutrition.


A track-and-trace system that goes beyond food industry standards helps ensure safety, quality and transparency in every batch.

Try Rotational Feeding

Keep things exciting at mealtime by rotating the ACANA recipes you feed your dog. This will allow your best friend to enjoy a variety of animal proteins in delicious and nourishing new flavors. Don’t transition too abruptly, though—start by replacing 25% of the old food with the new recipe and gradually increase the amount over time. Puppies are recommended to remain on puppy diets.


ACANA goes beyond the first ingredient in their foods, ensuring quality down to the very last ingredient on the label. From limited ingredient diets to recipes for all the stages of life, they take great care to provide the balanced, wholesome nutrition your pet needs for a long and happy life.

Helped put weight on our picky eater

When we brought our new Vizsla puppy home at 8wks, he was skinnier than the rest of his litter mates, but the breeder told us he just had a high metabolism. We were continuing the raw diet his breeder used, but noticed he never ate much and was looking underweight. A few people suggested Acana, and he loved it! He devoured the first two bowls like he was starving, and after two weeks, he’s still loving it. He’s been on the Acana wholesome grains puppy food and a raw diet, and is eating so well now. He’s gained weight, his coat has become smoother and glossier, and he looks much healthier now.

Love Acana Wholesome Grains

My GSD puppy came with Giardia and was on antibiotics for several weeks. She did not like the food that she came with (Earthborn grain-free) and her digestive tract was all messed up. After months of prescription Royal Canin gastro, I moved her slowly to this food from Acana. She's very particular, but she eats this, her BMs are good, her coat is great, her itching is little to none and we're finally off prescription. I crumble dehydrated duck patties on top and soak with bone broth or hot water.

Gave puppy loose stools

Puppy loved the food for the first few days. Then he developed loose stools and refused to eat it. He loves the adult Acana we feed a adult shepherd. As soon as he started eating that his stools were formed again. He absoultley will not eat the puppy food.

Worth the $

Rescued a 4 week old puppy. She was in really ruff condition. Vet told me to feed her a grain puppy food, recommended purina. The poor puppy suffered extreme diarrhea. Switched her onto healthy grains by acana, she is healthy, full of energy, living her best life! We figure, you’ll pay for it on one end or another we would rather it be on great health as opposed to vet bills.

He loves it!

I'm a very picky dog mom. This is a high quality brand in my opinion, and my dogs (one pup, one adult) love their food! The ingredients are great, not packed full of things your furbaby doesn't need. My pups give it 5 paws up! :)

Perfect Puppy Kibble

Our 5-month-old lab puppy loves this kibble. It is easy to soften/soak and blend to use in enrichment toys, and works great as a reward in training. This is high quality, grain-inclusive, high-protein.

Small Bags

I am a fan of both Acana and Orijen so when we adopted two large breed puppies I naturally looked at this brand for options to help them grow properly to prevent hip dysplasia. Because they will be over 50lbs when they're grown, I wanted a healthy grain inclusive food to help prevent heart issues. My dogs (Goldendoodles) go through the biggest bag (11.5lbs) in about 9 days so this size bag is not practical. I'd like to see this food in a 25-30lb bag so that I can continue to feed it. The only cons to this good are the bag sizes and the expense.

Game changer!!

I have a 10 month old GSP that has been on ProPlan large breed puppy, and ProPlan Sport. His coat was healthy and shiny, but as he grew and his stamina increased, his ribs and hip bones started to show and he definitely appeared underweight. I started really paying attention to his eating habits and found that he would only eat his kibble when he was absolutely starving and even then he wasn’t excited to do so. (I didn’t realize this sooner because my older dog will eat anything and was finishing his food off when I want looking!) My pup needed a grain-inclusive, high- protein and fat ratio diet since he is a very active sporting dog, and most others were either grain-free or too low in protein. Found this based on local recommendation and it checked all the boxes, so I crossed my fingers, and fed it to him and WOW!!! I have never seen my pup eat with such excitement and enthusiasm. He was excited before I even opened the bag just from the smell! SO relieved we found this dog food! Just like people, all dogs are different and what works for some may not work with others (the ProPlan gets fabulous reviews and my dog hated it), but for us, this dog food is a game changer!
