Acana Regionals Five Star Rating

Acana Regionals


Dog Food Advisor, the independent dog food recommendations website, has upgraded its rating of ACANA Regionals from 4.5 stars to the top rating of five stars.

The website is known for its detailed, objective analysis of ingredients and nutritional value, and its five-star rating is coveted among dog foods. With more than 4,500 reviews of dog food products, fewer than 90 dog foods have five stars.

The Dog Food Advisor review highlights the “significant amount of meat” in Regionals. It also celebrates Regionals’ exceptionally low carbohydrates.

“Above-average protein. Above-average fat. And below-average carbs when compared to a typical dry dog food,” reads the review. “Enthusiastically recommended.”

Brimming with 70 per cent meat, ACANA Regionals foods include Meadowland, Wild Atlantic, Grasslands and Appalachian Ranch. Made in our state-of-the-art DogStar® Kitchens in Kentucky, we always use Fresh Regional Ingredients from our trusted local suppliers, such as ranch-raised meats, free-run poultry and eggs, wild-caught fish and sun-ripened fruits and vegetables.

Dog Food Advisor also updated its description of giblets, which are found in healthy, natural diets, to better reflect their true nutritional value.

ACANA Heritage, ACANA Singles and ORIJEN dog food also enjoy five-star ratings from Dog Food Advisor.
