Acana Dog Food

Acana dog food is made by Champion Petfoods located in Alberta, Canada. The group was created in 1975 and nowadays their foods can be purchased in over 60 countries.

Acana is a Biologically Appropriate dog food made with Fresh Regional Ingredients. This Biologically Appropriate nutritional thinking represents an original standard of dog food designed to nourish dogs according to their evolutionary adjustment to meat and protein-rich recipes.

Protein is essential. In spite of carbohydrates are broadly recognized as an important cause of obesity and diabetes in dogs, conventional dog foods often have in excess of 50% carbohydrate content.


Acana is rich in protein and low in carbohydrates and uses a supreme variety of poultry, meat and fish. This dog food brand uses only local ingredients that are sustainable raised and delivered fresh every day, so they are never frozen and are preservative free.

This dog food also includes fruits and vegetables delivered fresh from western Canada’s fertile farms and orchards. These ingredients supply vital vitamins and nutrients in a natural and bio-available form.

Acana foods feature ingredients that are authentically fresh and produced locally. They prepare their recipes in their own kitchens, where they steam-cook fresh ingredients in their own juices, without adding any water. And to retain all of the goodness and taste that’s naturally present in fresh ingredients, they slow-cook their foods at low temperatures.

This dog food also includes fruits and vegetables delivered fresh from western Canada’s fertile farms and orchards. These ingredients supply vital vitamins and nutrients in a natural and bio-available form.

Theses dog food formulas also include botanicals to “purify the body”. In fact, dogs still instinctively seek out weeds and plants. Acana botanicals help to:

  • Help in digestion
  • Serve as tonics and builders to strengthen organs
  • Eliminate toxins from the body by stimulating physiological processes

Why was the Dog Food Selector created?

Each dog has unique needs... The approach "one food for all dogs" isn't the more suitable. Dogs have different sizes, different life stages, unique breed characteristics, health conditions and a few other factors... Choosing the right food for your dog may help him or her life a longer and healthier life! We exist to make that task easier for you.

How does the Dog Food Selector work?

It's quite simple... It's a 1-2 step process. You just have to fill in the form with your dog's characteristics, like gender, age, size, activity, health conditions and a few other important data and click "search". Then, you'll see a list of dog foods with the highest review score. If you wish you can see all the detailed review of each individual dog food.
