Hi, Just my “two cents” again. with reference to mixing different canned and dry food. I do it with my overweight Norwich using some of the recommended weight loss foods. i.e.-Acana Light & Fit, rotated to Core reduced calorie (tranistioned slowly for a change), dog is losing weight quite nicely. In the evening meal I cut back some of the kibble and either add some of the Merrick or Wellness suggested cans.
I try to keep the calorie count as close as possible. My cats eat raw in the a.m. and canned & Orijen/Acana grain free in the p.m., no problem. I am looking into K9Natural or closer to raw for the dog in the future, also HKitchen. It does however take sometime to tranistion as with Johnathon’s comments of PH and digestion. I think what the pet store girl was referring to was mixing raw and kibble in the same meal, I interpreted it that way. I like to be able to rotate nutritional profiles every so often.
Correct me if I am wrong….

If your dog is doing well on Acana and you and your dog both like it then keep it. If your worried about weight gain change over to Acana Light and Fit. Our Bouvier was put on this when he started getting heavy and it worked well!! He was on it for 8 years and didn’t have to cut back on his food to keep him at a good weight.

One of these products is Acana Light and Fit, which is just one of the many nutritional Acana products offered for puppies and adult dogs. As the first five ingredients listed on a dog food are the main substances that make up the product, you generally can decide what's best for your dog by scanning this information first. Acana Light and Fit's first five ingredients include chicken meal, oats, chicken, peas, and brown rice. Salmon, whole eggs, chicken fat and vegetables, such as carrots and turnip greens, are included as well.Unlike other dog foods that mostly contain fillers, Acana can be considered light. It is perfect for dogs that are overweighed, since it provides nutrients, reducing the level of hunger your pet usually has. That way, he will eat better, and meals of better quality. Giving your dog fewer carbs also will help. But most of all, the boost of energy your dog receives from the Acana Dog Food will make him move all over the place, burning those excessive calories. All these benefits are hardly found in other brands. They don’t understand how to nourish your dogs and focus mostly on filling his hunger, not in feeding his body.
