Acana Premium Adult Dog Food Review

As with all dog food recipes the first thing we are going to look at are the first five ingredients. The first five ingredients are a good indication of the quality of the dog food. When looking at the first five ingredients you want to make sure there is plenty of meat and grains are minimal.

Acana Premium Adult First Five Ingredients Analysis:

  1. Chicken meal
  2. Steamed Oats
  3. Fresh Free-Run Chicken
  4. Peas
  5. Brown Rice
Chicken Meal is the primary meat ingredient in Acana Puppy Large Breed Dog Food. This ingredient is going to make up the entire meat source. We feel that the meat content of this formula is insufficent. Dogs are natural carnivores and need a diet that is based of off meat and protein that comes from meat.

Steamed Oats are going to be the main sources of grains this this recipe. Oats are of a decent quality.

Chicken is the third ingredient in this recipe. This ingredient is inclusive of its water content. Meaning that once the water is removed and this ingredients becomes a dried ingredient it will weigh significantly less, thus making it fall further in the ingredients list.

Peas are the fourth ingredient and are an excellent source of plant protein.

Brown Rice is the fifth ingredient and is a decent quality grain that adds additional protein and carbohydrates to your dog’s food.
