    Fromm Heartland Gold Grain-Free Large Breed Puppy Dry Dog Food. Started the switch (mixing) at eight weeks from the breeders brand and no problems at all, since I kind of live in BFE I order it and like Chewy's excellent CS and pricing.

    Charley is getting the new American made single protein Acana and is doing well. Had him on another food for awhile but have come back to Acana.

    Hello,
    I have been feeding
    Hill's Ideal Balance Adult Grain Free Natural Salmon & Potato Recipe Dry Dog Food. My bulldog has continued to get hot spots and inter-digital swelling. He's a rescue boy and has been stinky since I've had him. He's been on several different foods and his skin is better than it was but I just can't quite get to problem free.

    I'm really frustrated now that I learned that the food I have been feeding contains chicken. I had no idea! I purchased Merrick Limited
    Ingredient Diet Real Salmon and Sweet Potato Recipe Dog Food, which says it contains no chicken right on the package, I bought this on recommendation after learning my food wasn't what I thought it was but then I didn't find it on the list on the forum and wonder if it's okay. Does anyone have any experience with it?

    Thanks so much,
    Kalyn

    You might try a different protein source. Our Charley cannot handle salmon at all!

    Right now, duck, alternating each bag with pork. Each dog is different. Charley was also reacting with a Dogswell Livefree protein blend. We just need to give him more veggies with the Acana because he gets constipated!

    Merrick used to be a real good food but they were recently bought but Purina-- so time will tell.

    My girl was vert allergic to chicken and could not handle salmon --- try pork or beef and see how he does

    Shawna Murdockan hour agoThe new Acana from the plant in Kentucky instead of Canada made my dog super ill. Also read online many people complaining of the new formula from the new plant making their dogs ill. Received one reply to my comment from a lady whose dog died of liver failure 3 weeks after the new Acana formula. I included the screen shot of her post as I believe people need to know this !

    Ive been very business with a company in food industry I own and I also cook for Nyala. Days I have to bring Nyala to my sons to babysit so shes not 12 hours on her own. Im thinking putting her on Acana but from Canada only 2 x a week when im gone with ACV in her water so she doesn't get crystal in her urine again. Acana is owned by Champion who also makes Orijen which I adore and made here in Alberta. Its a Canadian company. I would stick to the Canadian plant for sure. But thats me.

    I am no longer using it. Miss Porkchop got the wrong ingredient chicken! I found out it's not grain free. P4P were good about it the return and exchanged it .I got her usually Canidae salmon for life.
    After, this experience no more . They do have a grain free product. Our bullies high maintenance, as a mom my concerns are for her best interest.

    Monty was on the Canadian Acana for months and doing very well. We had to change to American made Acana (Canadian no longer available here) which was a complete change in ingredients and lo and behold, two months later he had a big yeast outbreak, ear infection and tail pocket infection. Can I say say it's the Acana for sure, no, but I am not taking any chances and he is now on Zignature. Fingers crossed.
