In the first in a series of product spotlights, in this update we’ll provide some information on one of the Acana dog food range : Chicken and Burbank Potato. Here at Big Dog World, these are some of our favourite dog foods and we highly recommend them.

Acana produce a range of foods that are designed to replicate the natural diet of a dog in a convenient dry complete food. Using fresh whole meats that dogs would naturally consume, the foods contain only the finest sources of protein and carbohydrates.

Although dogs can digest some fruits and vegetables and will naturally choose to consume small amounts in their diet, they are primarily carnivorous. A dog’s diet should therefore be high in quality protein sources like fresh meat and fish, and low in carbohydrates. All Acana foods use fresh, top quality proteins and are free of colours, flavours and preservatives.

Acana’s ‘Biologically Appropriate” philosophy is based around 5 rules:
Diverse in Fresh Ingredients
Meat and Protein Rich
ACANA dog foods contain 45-65% meat or fish ingredients (up to twice the levels in ordinary pet foods)
Carbohydrate Limited
Low carbohydrate levels with steel-cut Alberta oats as a low glycemic single source grain.
Fresh Fruits and Vegetables
Instead of high glycemic grains (that can elevate blood sugar levels) Acana include fresh fruits and vegetables that limit carbohydrate and supply micronutrients in natural form.
Botanicals to Cleanse the Body
Botanicals enhance a dog’s metabolism and cleanse the body of toxins. They also provide the element of your dog’s diet they crave when they forage for grasses.
Acana Chicken and Burbank Potato ingredients are delivered fresh each day (never frozen or processed) and passed fit for human consumption:
Cobb Chicken: cage-free from local prairie farms.
Grade A Eggs from local prairie farms.
Wild-caught Flounder from North Vancouver’s pristine waters.
Fresh local fruits and vegetables including Red Delicious apples, Bartlett pears, butternut squash and Burbank potatoes from the sun-drenched Okanagan valley. Locally grown steel-cut oats are digested slowly causing blood sugar to rise less over a longer period of time. This increases dogs’ sensitivity to insulin and fat storage is decreased.
Wild-caught New Brunswick herring provides marine-source Omega 3 to support immunity and healthy skin & coat.

New Raised Large Dog Beds

Raised dog beds have many advantages over traditional beds. They are easy to clean plus they don't get that 'wet dog' smell! The Hi-K9 large dog beds have a fabric top stretched over a metal frame. The fabric comes in either a mesh type for dogs that get wet and dirty or overheat or a solid fabric which has a smoother feel and prevents draughts.

The cover moulds to your dog’s body ensuring there are no pressure points that can develop into sores. No heat is conducted from the body ensuring it is kept warm and comfortable. No condensation can gather underneath the bed to create smells and damp.

 These raised dog beds are especially good for dogs with arthritis and joint problems. The mesh cover is also perfect for dogs that are suffering with skin allergies as the bed can be cleaned with ease. It allows air to circulate and any debris to drop through the open weave.

The dog beds are fully collapsible and come in their own bag so are great when travelling or during times when your dog may need to be kenneled. The metal frame is zinc-plated for long-term protection then powder coated for extra protection so it can be left outdoors if required. It comes as standard with black rubber feet and will not harm your carpets or solid floors.

Available in sizes including large, XL and XXL for large and giant breed dogs.

Large Breed Dog Food

Feeding a large breed dog is not as straightforward as people without experience of these giants of the canine world may think. Yes, large dogs have large appetites to match their size but very often their metabolisms are slower than those of smaller dogs.
Royal Canin dog food
Consequently, they do not need as much fat or as many calories to stay on top dog form. The best foods for wonderful giants such as Mastiffs, Newfoundlands, Saint Bernards, Leonbergers, Wolfhounds and Great Danes (to name a few) are those which contain high quality protein and are low in fat.
Fortunately appropriate food is easy to find. You may wish to try Royal Canin Giant Adult dog food or Arden Grange Large Breed kibble for large adult dogs in the range supplied by Arden Grange dog food. Large or giant breeds of dog can be prone to weight gain because of their slower metabolisms, and thus a diet which is lower in fat is better for them. Excessive weight gain, for dogs as well as for humans, puts undue strain on their vital organs and on their joints and so must be avoided at all costs.Other excellent food for large breed dogs includes Barking Heads Big Foot – a top-quality kibble designed specifically to meet the needs of large and giant breeds over 25Kg adult weight. The range includes lamb or chicken varieties, plus Little Big Foot for large breed puppies.
Orijen dog food
Orijen dog food and Acana dog food from Canada are highest quality grain-free diets using fresh ingredients. Acana Large Breed and Orijen Large Breed are formulated for large breeds with excellent sources of protein. The relatively high cost of these foods is offset by the need to feed less than with most others dog foods.
So how much should you feed your large dog? Since you must avoid allowing your dog to gain excessive weight, it is important to develop a routine for your dog rather than feeding on demand. Most owners choose to feed their dogs two smaller meals per day.
Larger dogs have a tendency to bolt food, which can lead to bloating. For this reason, smaller meals are often preferable. Dry biscuits such as those made by Royal Canin dog food are helpful since they are designed to be chewed; thereby reducing the speed at which the dog ingests them.
Your dog may also benefit from eating in a quiet area of your house. Do remember that wet food such as that in the Royal Canin dog food range should be served at room temperature and not straight from the fridge, and fresh water should always be available for your dog at mealtimes.
Of course, a large dog will consume commensurately large quantities of food which is why it pays to buy it at discounted prices if you can. You may wish to consider buying wholesale dog food to save money. Why not check out our prices here at Big Dog World or contact our friendly team for further help and advice?
