My only issue with Acana (and Orijen for that matter) is that sometimes production sucks and you can't get certain formulas randomly, but hopefully if that happens you have dogs that can eat a different formula here and there.
I hear this a lot, I am lucky because we are a few hours from the plant so we can pretty much always get it.

Yeah, I don't really know what's up. My city isn't that far either and I know some stores never had a single issue even with the fire. The one I work for OTOH though hasn't received a full shipment in at least 8 months. I mean, it's not terrible, but sometimes it can be frustrating.

I don't think the issue is that huge (at least not here), but it is something to be aware of I think.

But it's a good food and is almost always my 'go to' Grain Free option for people because it's affordable for a quality food, and my dogs always did super well on it.

Maybe that I just never noticed because I rotate through them as well, and because of where I live we are used to not being able to get everything all the time so I might have been oblivious to it, lol. I'm happy as long as they ave something

We've been feeding a rotation of all the grain free acana formulas for 3 years now. Absolutely love it, love the ingredients list and love it's sourced locally!

We fed it to Tucker for a while after TOTW got recalled but had to switch back because his gas got so bad. Other than that he did fine, not really different than on TOTW, except the gas. He was on the prairie one.

We're still struggling with LID deliveries, we kept getting a tiny amount of lamb but we JUST got our first duck shipment since I started working here in November. Two of my coworkers feed it almost exclusively so that frustrated them.

The other lamb, I forget which but its in a soft pink bag, was too hard on my bosses affens teeth and she switched to the chicken and Bartlett potato, she said its a bit annoying paying so much for a heavy in potato food but the kibble is comprised of large discs and easy to break up.

Rumor used to get Pacifica, and I think I threw Grasslands in there once. She liked it and did well on it. My only problem was that it cost me $70+. She's been on Fromm, Earthborn, and some raw since then. If the price was slightly more reasonable I'd continue to feed it.

Everything seemed to come back probably around the beginning of January, and now it's out again. We have no Ranchlands, no Grasslands. My store took in the food last year and we have gotten people on it, only to have it dry up. It's a bit frustrating really, but I do like the food.
