*This is a Canadian made pet food using Canadian ingredients. The Acana Representative told me ingredients are human quality/grade. The mineral listings do read to be chelated or proteinated (for better mineral absorption). This pet food contains several quality animal protein sources chicken, walleye, whitefish, liver, egg. Contains alfalfa, kelp – health promoting ingredients. Contains selenium yeast – safer form of selenium.
This food does include probiotics (friendly bacteria that benefits the intestinal system and in turn the immune system of the pet), however they are not listed in the Guaranteed Analysis (no company guarantee bacteria is viable).

To explain the rating – only the first five ingredients – the majority of the food – are rated and listed in bold type. Grey Font ingredients imply ingredients providing pets little to no nutrition, and Red Font ingredients are Red Flag ingredients that are potentially dangerous to pets. Quality ingredients are listed in bold black font. Five quality ingredients gives the pet food a five Paw Print rating. Four quality ingredients gives the pet food a four Paw Print rating, and so forth. Four Paw Prints is the highest rating possible for a canned pet food. Do not rely on the paw print rating alone; read the Plus/Minus information and manufacturer information at the top of each page.
