Rated 1 out of 5 by PoodleLover BRING WILD PRAIRIE BACK, PLEASE!!
My two toy poodles have been enjoying Acana Wild Prairie for the last 6 years. They LOVED it. I was so happy with their food that I told every dog owner I knew about it. 6 people that I told put their dogs on this formula and they all loved it. Now that this company has transitioned from Canada to the USA and changed the formula of the wild prairie to meadowlands my dogs among and all the others I know that had to try the meadowland HATE it. My dogs used to gobble up the wild prairie and now with the new meadowland they were starving themselves because they would not eat it until they were so hungry that they had to. They would go a whole day and not eat until the next morning. I couldn't take it anymore, they were so unhappy. I transitioned them to a completely differant brand. They are now eating well and are happier than ever. Acana, I am so disappointed that you did this. You changed the formula, downsized the amount of food in the bags and upped the price? You have officially lost 6 customers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JillyG Not nearly the same as the old Wild Prairie formula
My pit mix has been eating the Wild Prairie formula for all of her 5 years of life and when our little pet food store ran out and had to switch us to this new Meadowland version made in KY she REFUSES to eat it. She won't even go near her bowl. For this price, I expect them to better match their old formulas when they change their sourcing.

We were feeding Earthborn Primitive Natural. It was the best ingredients for the price. It does have potatoes which is nothing but a fattening ingredient but still a very good dog food. We have started the switch. This is excellent ingredients and food. The only one that may be better is Orijen at a much higher price. We have 4 dogs all over 50 pounds. It is expensive but hopefully they will not eat as much and lose a little weight in the process. If you can't afford this brand, I would recommend the Earthborn. But only the Primitive Natural. Let me add that Acana does have a frequent buyer program on Chewy. You just have to ask them about it and let them know when you have purchased 12 bags in a 2 year span. Earthborn also has coupons they send every month and Chewy may have a program for them if you ask. So far the dogs love this food. But they will eat anything. I am feeding the cats Acana also and they will not touch anything else.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 1bd1 gives energy
meadowland gives my bird dog energy, but I think she liked wild prairie better. i'll probably try a food with less protein & fat because dog is gaining weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bobbi Passed the picky dog test!
I switched to this formula after testing showed that my dog was allergic to duck... which he loved. He is very picky, so I was delighted when he gobbled this new chicken flavor up, right away. His coat improved almost overnight; no more itchy scabs! Guess he really was allergic to that duck. It was so nice to be able to switch within the brand without stomach upset being a factor. Love Acana's products.

I'm so happy I finally found a healthy brand my dog loves and isn't allergic to and I absolutely love the free and incredibly fast shipping Chewy's provides. Thank you!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Labralound Bring back Wild Prairie
Been feed my Black Lab Wild Prairie for some time now....like most anything else I put in his bowl....he vacuumed it up....Labs love their grub!
Not this new Meadowland though.
Like a lot of folks on here, this change was made for us, as it seems Acana has decided to drop the old formula and, based on my dogs reaction, replaced it with something not nearly as good.
I was lucky enough to have ~1/2 a bag of the Wild Prairie left when this new formula arrived so I was able to 'break him in' on this new food. Started with less than a 1/4 cup of the Meadowland added to the Wild Prairie...maybe he ate a little slower than usual, but not too much of an issue. As the ratio of Meadowland increased I noticed him increasingly less interested when I put down his bowl.
He still gets super excited when he knows its feeding time....so I know he's looking forward to food. Just not this food it seems.
Now I am up to 1/2 Wild Prairie + 1/2 Meadowland....and my Lab...a complete belly boy...walks away after a couple of nibbles at it.
Canceling my order for this food and go looking elsewhere. Never had this kind of reaction from him with any food.
Very disappointed in Acana.

This food is being given to a working dog with some blood sugar regulation issues so it was really heartening to find a low glycemic food that did not skimp on the quality proteins and good fats. The first comment on opening the bag was "Dang! The stuff smells great!". My dog thinks it is pretty fabulous too which as also a good thing given that their condition can lead to a reduction in appetite. Chewy.Com was also to be commended for the 24 hr delivery time. Wow!
