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’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.

Questions & Answers

14 Customer Questions


Is this okay for large breed puppies? The image on the bag says all breeds and all life stages, but I don’t see any other indications of whether it’s okay for large breed puppies.
Answer by ChewyFeb 14, 2021
ACANA Wholesome Grains Red Meat Recipe Dry Dog Food is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for All Life Stages – except for the growth of large breed dogs (70lbs or more as an adult).

Are any of these ingredients sourced from China?
Answer by ChewyMar 22, 2021
ACANA believe that making the world’s best pet foods requires using the world’s finest ingredients. While many of ACANA's fresh and raw ingredients are sourced in the USA if they cannot find the quality or quantity they need they will look elsewhere. With this in mind, ACANA focuses on working with suppliers that they know and trust.

Does this food need to be refrigerated?
Answer by ChewyDec 10, 2021
Refrigeration of ACANA is not required. Rather than a garage with large temperature fluctuations, the best storage is in your home in a cool, dry place at room temperature. Once opened, you can safely store ACANA food in its packaging by rolling the top of the bag down after each use. If you live in a humid climate, consider using an airtight container and simply put the entire bag of food in the container. Remember to wash your storage bin whenever you change out your bag of food to ensure food buildup does not occur. Also remember to keep the lot number handy. You can find this information, as well as the Best Before date, on the back of the package near the top.

Meh, wasnt the best

I have an 8 year old German Shepherd and a 2 year old, the older Gal has never really been picky about what she eats but my younger one is a little bit. At first they both ate this no problem, by the end of the largest bag they were avoiding eating it until absolutely necessary. Idk why, its kinda out of the ordinary for them. I've never seen either really reject food like that before. We are back on Stella & Chewy, my young girl is happy as a lamb now.

GSD vs. Grains

My 8-mo GSD seems to chow on this food perfectly with no problems but when it comes to her stools and gas releases, it is super soft and smelly, respectively! Was recommended grains for skin and hair but that seems to apply to only their dogs. She randomly itches when being talked to, or in plain boredom. I recommend this brand to the fullest, it's the ingredients to this product. Will be trying a different blend.

Great food

I’ve fed this food to several of our dogs and they all did awesome on it. I especially like that it has grains bc our vet was concerned with possible heart issues on grain free. Our doodle has perfect poops and never any stomach issues with this

My dog hates this food

My 85lb lab mix who normally will gobble down anything and everything refused to even come near this food. He'll normally stare you down during mealtimes and watch you with anticipation as you fill up his bowl with any type of kibble. But with this Acana dog food, he'd run the other way as soon as he gets close enough to catch a whiff. He acts like we're trying to poison him when we feed him this food. I'm not sure if this food just smells and tastes bad to a dog, but he refuses to touch it. I'm writing this review both as a warning to other pet owners and also to remind myself to never buy it again.

Owen loves Acana Red Meat

Acana red meat has been the only kibble I’ve given my 6yo pit bull and he destroys his food every time! Coat is beautiful, stool is perfect. Highly recommend

Great kibble that seems to have some higher quality ingredients. Vet recommended including something with grains, as it that’s shown to be a healthier choice. Our two year old pittie gobbles this stuff up!

Acana is an awesome product

For almost 2 years I have been trying various foods in an attempt to assist my dog with losing weight-she only consistently gained, even when strictly limiting the amount. The Vet did a battery if lab tests-all were normal. My daughter recommended Acana. After just 10 days, I started noticing subtle changes in the girth if her stomach. She is actually losing the weight which was my goal! I also have a very finicky dog where he refuses to eat at times. He loves this food!!

Dogs will not eat it

I really wanted my furbabies to love this food but they will not touch it. :( I even mixed with other flavor of another brand and they just do not like the Red meat.

My girl loves this food

Hi I went to a seminar and was told that this brand was the healthiest dog food on the market. So I immediately switched her food and she loves it. I want her to be healthy and happy to live a long and healthy life.
