Every dog is different, and feeding amounts will vary with age and activity. Use this amount as an initial guide, and adjust amounts accordingly. Feed twice daily, and always provide fresh, clean water.

Feed puppies 1 1/2 - 3 months old twice the adult amount. Feed puppies 3 - 6 months old 1 1/2 times the adult amount. Feed puppies 6 - 11 months old 1 1/4 times the adult amount. During gestation increase the feeding 25 to 50 percent. During lactation offer free-choice feeding.

Serve dry or lightly moistened. To help maintain freshness, seal the bag tightly, and store it in a cool, dry location.

Transition Instructions

If you are already feeding ACANA and you’re introducing new ACANA Regionals, mix the 2 foods about 50-50 for a day or 2 for easy transition. However, if your dog has a history of digestive sensitivities we recommend that you do a transition over 5 - 7 days.

If you are new to ACANA, we recommend that you provide a full transition period for your dog. Introduce ACANA Regionals slowly; start out with 25% of the new food and 75% of the old. Over a period of 7 days, gradually increase the amount of new food until you are feeding 100% ACANA.

  • Excellent product

    By on

    The stray puppy that showed up in terrible shape absolutely loves this. In case you're thinking, "Of course she loves it ... she was half starved!" this food, along with Orijen's Puppy formula, was given to her a week after watching her pick at her Kibbles & Bits. And after reviewing the ingredient list I can understand why. She's come around amazingly well and weeks later is still loving her new food and home.

  • Helped my allergic Dog

    By on

    My bull mastiff has allergies and he is still 8 months so we have not been able to do a panel yet. But tried several premier brands and now think it is chicken (we never gave him food with grain). He has soft stools for months while on the other brands and "Orijen Acana Regionals Appalachian Ranch" turned his poop back into normal within 2 days. I know it is pricey, but SO worth it in my opinion!

    My vet recommended this dog food because my dogs were getting ear infections and she suggested a one protein food. You can change flavors without issue. I have Great Pyrenees and the love it. A bag is perfect before the tire of that flavor.

  • Consistently excellent

    By on

    My (sensitive stomach) dog has been enjoying Acana for years and this flavor is her favorite. This product is consistently excellent. We recently moved to a rural location so I was delighted that Chewy stocks this product and delivers it quickly and for free!

  • The best Acana variety!

    By on

    My boxer has had several Acana dog food varieties and was OK with the food. Well I was awarded a free bag of Acana after purchasing 12 bags (just contact support to redeem), they said any variety I want, so I tried this expensive Appalachian Ranch formula. Boy am I glad I did! He gobbles down this food, no more coaxing him to eat. I babysit a puppy boxer and she has been gobbling down this food too and her daddy has now switched her over to Appalachian Ranch, he said her poops are now normal. And a big bonus, my dogs breath does not stink anymore! He has had bad breath since 8 weeks old, no matter what food I have fed him. Now mommy enjoys "stink free" kisses.

  • Great food for allergies prone dogs

    By on

    Love this brand of kibble, one of the cleaniest dry dog food on the market. Sad to hear Chewy will no longer be selling it :(. My APBT allergies improved tremendously since I started her on this brand.

    By on

    I purchased 3 flavors to try and all 4 of my dogs like it. The wild Atlantic and Appalachian ranch r their favorites but the like the chicken too. 2 of my dogs have wheat allergies and environmental allergies. So far everyone is doing well on this food and they all like it, which is a task in itself. Thank you and Acana

    My yorkie loves this. I have tried two other "premier" foods.Nothing comparable to this.I love that there is nothing in it that isn't good for him. Yes it cost a little more but way worth it. Love chewy,too!

    Well, not any more. My little girl loves Acana and I would not jeopardize her health by feeding her anything other than the best. She was recently at the vets office for her annual checkup and the vet said her weight, teeth, coat, eyes were amazing. She inquired what I was feeding her and I told her Acana. She then stated "that explains it". I am committed to my baby and give Acana 5+ stars.
