    Looks like good quality, and they signed the pledge ! I would serve my dog either this or the Carna4 Duck as my first choices for kibble ( if I didn't have an allergic dog that needed raw ) . But that's because I live in Canada- in USA it's hard to get Carna4. I also like the idea of dehydrated raw, which you can even get in kibble shape- in Canada we can get a really inexpensive one called Canisource GrandCru made in Quebec eg. https://www.canisource.com/grand-cru...php#turkey-url

    Also, Susan Thixton, editor of that website really does not like Champion Foods, saying they are a feed grade based dog food, not human grade, allowing them to throw in pretty much any quality of meat.

    I have nothing against that website or Susan Thixton, as itís ok.. but donít mean sheís right in everything she says. Thereís a big difference in the Champion pet food in Canada n the plant in Kentucky. Kentucky wanted to change a few products n use their own and it didnít work. Donít change whatís not broken I say. All website, you take some n leave some. Even when I give my 2 cents, take some n leave some. It works for my dogs n might not for others. But before putting down something, try it n if it didnít work after time, well move on. Just like some website. When I see petitions, most of the time I avoid them because of different opinions.

    So here’s the reply for signing petitions.. I’m totally with what they replied. And has nothing to do with Acana. If you have a quality product, you don’t need to explain yourself. Called communication.

    Hi Helene,

    Rather than sign a pledge through a third party, we prefer to provide current and up-to date information through our company directly. We are proud to be open and transparent when it comes to our ingredients and recommend that Pet Lovers contact us directly either by getting in touch with our Customer Care department or by viewing the information available on our website.

    Please let me know if there is anything else that we can help with.

    Kind regards,

    It seems to me that there's a bit of ill will between Susan Thixton and Champion and that's why they are not signing. Hence Susan posting that article on how Champion uses feed grade protein.

    At the end of the day, people are free to buy whatever they want. I work closely with food inspectors as you know I’m in the food industry n I see up front a lot more. Trust me that was an interest of mine asking what category does this company holds. Back then Nyala n Duke was feed half kibbles n half raw. To this day, this company are still at the top with quality, very clean facilities n fresh. There was once an issue a few years back “someone “ that dumped rotten carcasses in one of Acana’s dumpsters. Went all over. But after viewing videos, was an activist against slaughtering trying to bring down pet food companies. I wouldn’t endorse Acana/Orijen If there was an issue of low quality kibble. I’m more for raw but raw isn’t for everyone. Why it’s better than nothing to do half half with organs. Again people can do what they want as it’s their pets

    ďIt came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough,all the components of my heart will be dog,and I will become as generous and loving as they are"
