Canagan: A New Entry in the U.S. Petfood Market

December 13, 2015

New Dog Food

Anytime I run across a new pet food – or at least new to me – I get excited. In this case, Canagan isn’t new but it is new to the United States market. This dog food is described in their marketing materials as “one of the UK’s top-selling grain-free brands” and it’s sold now in 27 countries.

Canagan bills its dog food as biologically-appropriate and less likely than other foods to cause an allergic reaction.

There are no artificial additives, no chemical preservatives, food colors or flavorings, and no growth hormones. Canagan does not  participate in any invasive animal testing or research. All recipes are tested on the pets owned by the company family members, friends and selected breeders.

Let’s look at the ingredients of their Midwestern Plains Chicken Recipe:

INGREDIENTS

Chicken, Chicken Meal, Field Peas, Chickpeas, Russet Potatoes, Chicken Fat (Preserved with Mixed Tocopherols), Sweet Potato, Sun Cured Alfalfa, Salmon Oil, Natural Flavor, Potassium Chloride, Salt, Vitamins [Vitamin E Supplement, Calcium Pantothenate, Niacin Supplement, Vitamin A Supplement, Riboflavin Supplement, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Thiamine Mononitrate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Folic Acid], Minerals [Zinc Proteinate, Calcium Carbonate, Iron Proteinate, Copper Proteinate, Manganese Proteinate, Sodium Selenite, Calcium Iodate], Apples, Spinach, Dried Kelp, Peppermint, Marigold, Cranberries, Rosemary Extract.

Everything in this food fits my idea of a perfect dog food.  It begins with 2 quality meat proteins, contains healthy options for fat/oil, and is full of vitamins.  The inclusion of natural flavor probably means there is MSG in the food but overall, this is an excellent dog food!

They used free-range chicken and Scottish salmon with herring and trout in their recipes. Their Country Game variety contains duck, venison, and rabbit for protein.  I believe any canine would be delighted with a Canagan diet.

Check their website to determine where to buy this pet food that is fairly new to the U.S. You can also purchase it online.
