We’re big fans of Orijen, manufactured by Champion Pet Food in Alberta.  I consider it a value food, meaning that you get what you pay for, and then some, relative to cheaper foods.  But not everyone can afford that level of value.  Acana is Champion’s lower-priced sibling to Orijen, and our November Food of the Month.  Take a look at the ingredients of the grain-free Pacifica Dog Food, with the protein/fat/fiber coming out to 33%/15%/3.5%:

Salmon meal, russet potato, peas, fresh boneless salmon (source of DHA), fresh
boneless herring, herring meal, pumpkin, fresh boneless flounder, salmon oil
(preserved with mixed tocopherols and rosemary), ground lobster shell (natural source
of glucosamine), sun-cured alfalfa leaf, red delicious apples, carrots, turnip greens,
organic kelp, organic bladderwrack, organic dulse, juniper berries, cranberries,
Saskatoon berries, black currants, angelica root, chicory root, red clover, red raspberry
leaf, dandelion root, peppermint leaf, marigold flowers, chamomile flowers, rosemary,
Lactobacillus acidophilus, Enterococcus faecium.
Vitamins (vit. A, vit. D3, vit. E, niacin, riboflavin, lysine, thiamine mononitrate, vit. B12,
pyridoxine, folic acid, biotin). Minerals (iron proteinate, zinc proteinate, manganese
proteinate, cobalt proteinate, copper proteinate).

It’s about $16 cheaper in the 29.7# bag than Orijen 6 Fish.  The 6 Fish analysis comes out to 40%/18%/3% for protein/fat/fiber, so it is significantly higher in protein especially, but the ingredients are very similar:

Fresh deboned salmon, salmon meal, herring meal, russet potato, fresh deboned lake whitefish, sweet potato, peas, salmon oil (preserved with vitamin E), fresh deboned walleye, fresh deboned herring, sun-cured alfalfa, fresh deboned flounder, fresh deboned lake trout, dehydrated organic kelp, pumpkin, carrots, spinach, turnip greens, apples, cranberries, saskatoon berries, black currants, choline chloride, psyllium, licorice root, angelica root, fenugreek, marigold flowers, sweet fennel, peppermint leaf, chamomile flowers, dandelion, summer savory, rosemary, sea salt, vitamin supplements (vitamin A, vitamin D3, vitamin E, niacin, vitamin C, thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin, vitamin B5, vitamin B6, folic acid, biotin, vitamin B12), mineral supplements (zinc proteinate, iron proteinate, manganese proteinate, copper proteinate, selenium), dried Lactobacillus acidophilus product, dried Enterococcus faecium fermentation product.

I’m pleased to have a high quality, lower-priced, grain-free, lower-protein option in the house.  Come and get it, at 10% off throughout November. Just mention the Secret Sale at checkout.
