DogFoodie, I found a few articles online that claim that flax seed oil is good for dogs.
Here the author also claims that all researches claiming that dogs can’t convert ALA to DHA were funded by the fish oil companies (but then again, this site itself seems to be only selling flax seed products, so they might be subjective themselves).
What do you think?
Nvm, I googled it and it seems to be recommended for dogs even more than fish oil.
I’ll try that and see…
Thanks, L.M. !
Hmm. I’m using Flaxseed oil for myself. Do you think that would be safe for her as well?
Seems you are correct Michael.
No potatoes, website outdated.

Thank you for taking the time to write to us.
We made some changes to our Regional’s diets in winter of last year. We’re always searching for ways to advance our BAFRINO mandate, improving our foods for pet lovers world-wide. Biologically Appropriate ACANA features high meat content in fresh WholePrey ratios which provide micro-nutrients naturally. This has enabled us to reduce the added vitamins and mineral supplements in the ACANA Regionals.
ACANA contains far fewer carbohydrates than conventional food, delivering a low-glycemic response to promote stable blood sugar, healthy body weight and peak conditioning. Now even lower in glycemic load, ACANA Regionals is potato-free.
We are in the process of updating our website, you should see changes shortly. If you have any other questions please let me know.
All the best,
Champion Petfoods LP

Adding water to the food sounds interesting, I’ll try that… can’t give her more than 2 meals a day though because I live alone and work during the day… 🙁 she seems to be ok with it for now though.
Regarding the fish oil – what exactly should I look for? Omega-3?

The reason for recommending the non-inflammatory food is because of the potential for inflammation due to the joint problems?
