    Probably should mention as a reminder- his stomach issues are back stemming from the new formula- the KY formula is terrible. He was fine in Canadian Acana for years.

    I read in another thread Purina is in negotiations to purchase Champions food- can’t confirm but thought that was pretty terrible too. Their Quality and standards have gone down the drain.

    Hoping to keep this thread alive and would like to do a quick check in on limited ingredient alternative recommendations to Acana singles.

    Since my last post mid December- Bentley my Coton de Tulear, has been on bland homemade food to combat weekly bouts of vomiting and diarrhea (with blood on several occasions). He has been doing a lot better tolerating this food and am ready to add in a new dry dog food, but still at a loss for which one. I heard Zignature was a quality brand (from their threads here) but it appears to be available at Walmart which tells me otherwise (maybe not a good basis, but still concerns me).

    Has anyone has succes on transitioning from Acana to something else?

    My dog has been acana singles lamb and apple
    For years. He started on the Canadian version and then when the plant opened in Kentucky, that was the only one that was available in the US. Every so often he would have a very gurgley stomach followed by soft/diarrhea stool with blood. It has started to happen more frequently with the recent new of high amount of heavy metals it can only be attributed to the food. He is completely healthy otherwise.

    I want to take him off acana, which food did everyone here switch to? I read Merrick or Gather (made in Canada) might be Better choices.
    I’m Leary about merrick only because they’ve had various salmonella recalls over the years.

    Looking for any new food choice advice!
