ACANA Heritage Freshwater Fish Formula Grain-Free Dry Dog Food is hot extruded (which means it's processed under extreme heat and pressure) and made with feed grade ingredients, which are unfit for human consumption. It contains 2 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 7 anti-nutrients including Whole Green Peas, Red Lentils, and Pinto Beans (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 1 other sketchy ingredient, Natural Fish Flavor.

Warning In June 2019, the FDA implicated ACANA's dog food in at least 10 cases of Dilated Cardiomyopathy (or DCM), a potentially fatal heart condition.
