    Start with Acana Duck formula. We've given it to hundreds of dogs with great results. Not a single 1 was allergic

    here it’s $75 for 25lbs or 11.36kg. Still pricey. We’ve always fed a Duck formula but have switched to Zignature Duck to save $10 per bag. MINI still eating mostly Acana but we are very slowly transitioning her

    I’ll check it out if I find any here...

    Acana is made here in Alberta and we pay the highest in all of Canada. That’s AB for you.

    Orijen and Fromm don't make limited ingredient dog food. Acana Singles line, Zignature, Honest Kitchen limited ingredient line or Earthborne Holistic Venture line are probably the best limited ingredient products although there are some other decent ones including Merrick Limited and Canidae Limited https://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/best-...nic-dog-foods/

    Why do you still feed Acana if it's so expensive? Why not just frozen raw ? It would probably be cheaper .

    I feed both raw but when im out of town for a day or maybe 2, I will leave both dogs to one of my son’s. Both son’s have 3 dogs of their own so it’s easier for them the feed mine dry cause their dogs all eat dry. Nyala n Duke don’t eat kibbles all the time it’s mostly raw. But with my business I can leave weekends or come back late. Doesn’t happen often but it will once in a while. Why I always keep a bag of acana on hand. .

    Good reason !!! I used to keep a bag of dehydrated raw around but gave it away because it was getting old,so now I just have frozen raw.

    Where is he losing the hair? So, Ok you basically need to start over thatís all...breathe!!!

    Since youíre in Canada, get like mentioned start with Acana Duck. Acana does ONE protein per bag. By doing one protein per bag, you can eliminate the protein thatís not working for him and will help you both in the near future what works n what doesnít. A lot of members did the one protein at a time. Really works well.

    @helsonwheels

    ...sounds quite reasonable ...here we pay US$ 100 for a bag of 11.4 kilos of Acana singles.

    The wife says less likely food than environmental but food out of the question.
    She suggested putting him on home prepared chicken and rice for a week...see what happens. Do not be concerned with changes in stool...IOW, expect soft serve and if you don’t get it that’s a bonus.
