About ACANA Highest Protein Dry Dog Food

ACANA Wholesome Grains

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.

Is the small breed the same recipe as the regular ACANA Wholesome Grain?
Answer by ChewyJun 18, 2021
The ACANA Wholesome Grains Small Breed recipe is similar to the ACANA Wholesome Grains Free-Run Poultry recipe. However, it has been specifically formulated for small breeds in mind. The recipe also features a smaller kibble size.

This food is suitable for toy, extra small and small breed adult dogs.

Awesome ingredients...just a little too "big" for tiny mouths.

Highly reputable company and a stellar ingredient list. (And it's not always easy finding a premium small-breed, grain-inclusive formula!) However, with high hopes I tried to introduce this formula to my Yorkies several times over the course of a few months--each time with little success. They are used to eating high quality, healthy kibble, but this particular brand was never a hit with them flavor-wise. Also, the Acana pieces are a little larger than most "small breed" kibbles, and my tiny dogs (5 pounds) struggled to chew this dry food. Again, it's a formula worthy of five stars--I just finally gave up on it working for my pups.

Good brand but switching back

Buddy Boots didn’t like this formula by Acana, so switching back to Chicken and turkey with wholesome grains; a little pricey but it’s worth it. And made in Kentucky

Acana Wholesome Grains

My vet has wanted me to change Miki to a grain inclusive dog food because of anal gland issues. I have procrastinated. I finally decided to give it a try. I am now mixing Acana Wholesome Grains dog food in with her regular Acana. She absolutely loves it. What a huge difference in her stools and no more scooting issues. Thank you Acana.

I have to start out by saying I don’t know how many brands of dog food that I tried on my two Chihuahuas, I would venture to guess 10? But when I found this brand they totally love it every time I feed them! It was an O a one time deal that they liked it, they love it every time which is a first for them with dog food. And giving them grains is also the best because it’s been shown that green free dog food causes heart problems. So I am relieved that this is also a grain food. I just wish it was cheaper lol

So far so good it’s a winner

This is so far the only dry dog food my dog will eat. He’s an older dog and is very fussy, if it were up to him, he’d eat cat food instead!

Best Dog Food Ever

My picly dog loves it! It not only has the perfect ingredients for my dog, but she actually eats it!

My picky Papillins Love this food!

After trying several dry food brands over years I've found Acana Small Breed that my picky Papillons will eat n come back for more. I put couple drops of olive oil in the bowl. Their coats very healthy n this food made by Orijen has excellent reputation.

my dog loves it

My picky eater 9 month old poodle mix loves it. I like kibble size. It's thinner than other kibbles I tried so far and still crunchy. The only complain I have is the packaging. There's a strip to pull off and then the resealable zipper can be used. The zipper was completely torn off when I tried to open the bag. But food is still likable.

Pug Approved

I transitioned my two pugs over to this food from the Acana Puppy Food. They go absolutely crazy for it. I would definitely recommend this food if you have a small breed pup. The kibble is small enough for them to chew. I just hope they make it in a bigger bag for family’s that have more than one small breed dog.

My dogs didn’t like it

I’m trying new foods, more natural ones, and Acana is very nice. But my dogs didn’t eat it at all. So I’m back to Pro Plan
