I don't know about all the nutrients and stuff, but Oatmeal is on the Pacifica one and he LOVES it!!! Everything is good with him, no complaints!

We're in the process of switching to Wild Prairie. High expectations!

Acana/Orijen are all great foods. I did Acana for a little bit, but with THK, my bill was getting pretty large. So now I do Earthborn Coastal Catch and Grandma Lucy's freeze dried. Both dogs are doing well on it so I hope to stay with this for a while.

We feed Acana Wild Prairie, for about 6 months now. Max loves it. It agrees with him and his coat looks excellent. It is chicken/fish based.

Thanks for the feedback. It seems like Acana gets lots of thumbs up. We are looking at the Ranchland formula because Benny has a sensivity to chicken.

Mines on Acana Lamb/Apple. He has issues with certain foods. He does well on this food. If you can deal with Oats being in the food the one I feed is a few bucks cheaper then Ranchlands. But, all are good and I do rotate in Ranchlands every now and again.

Pacifica, Ranchlands, Lamb/Apple are the only ones with NO chicken...not even chicken fat or eggs. They do also make a duck/pear one but not sure how that would work if yours is allergic to chicken.
