    That’s interesting it’s in Petco now. When both my dogs became ill from a bag of Acana (when this all started) I switched to Zignature and have had zero problems. The whole thing with Acana/Orijen seemed shady and now they’re at petco makes it even more suspicious.

    We switched from Acana to Zignature and haven’t had any issues! We’ll be sticking with Zignature. I’m not sure if you saw my earlier posts but not long ago both my dogs became very sick from a bag of Acana (Appalachian ranch). They stopped being sick when we stopped giving them a Acana. The pet store gave me a full refund but since I didn’t have the codes from the bag, Acana couldn’t do anything. (I put the food in a seal tight container and throw away the bag) My pups were also on Acana since they were puppies. After researching it seemed A LOT of people were experiencing the same thing. I’m happy with Zignature!!

    Heard about this also! Acana Facebook page came out with a statement saying they don’t comment on rumors… why don’t they just say it’s not true if it’s really not true!? Seems strange

    Thanks for your feedback! I never had a problem until this one bag. I also don’t really believe the lawsuit that’s happening is related to this. I ended up switching to Zignature and haven’t had any problems since. They actually seem to like the food better! Acana has been helpful thus far with responding to my problem – although I’m not sure how much they can do bc I threw away the bag after I emptied it into a seal tight container. I was fully refunded from the store I bought it from.

    What food did you switch to? I’ve been researching other brands. There’s just too many negative factors for me to continuing to use Acana at this point. Thanks for your input!

    Thank you for your advice! I emailed them yesterday about what was happening and haven’t heard back yet. It was the 25lb Appalachian Ranch recipe(red meats and catfish)

    I have 2 dogs who have eaten only Acana since they were puppies. One is 17 months and the other is 11 months. I never had any problems until I purchased a new bag 2 days ago. They both have horrible diarrhea – it’s so bad they neither of them can hold it. I called the pet store I got it from and they said that they had another customer call a couple days ago with the same problem. I came on this thread to see if anyone else had the same problem with their dogs loose stool. It seems like this suddenly happened to the dogs as it has now for mine. I don’t necessarily think this stems from the lawsuit, but something is definitely different with the food.
