We saw a new, independent pet store today and noticed a brand of dog and cat food that's Canadian and *might* be a good alternative to Acana or Orijen. It's called Boreal. I'd never heard of it before today. The price on the dry cat food is quite competitive at $45 for 12 pounds (I think it was). A couple of the other flavours were a bit more, I think because there was duck or fish or something. And they also have canned food that's 95% meat with some interesting flavours. I'm not sure how it works out with Wellness Core when Petsmart has its deals though. That's still probably cheaper. Anyway, here's the Web site for anyone who's interested: https://borealpetfood.com There's a store finder on there. They don't sell to chains apparently, so it's hard to know where you might find it.

I've been going with Holistic Blend grain free for a long time and my girl likes it.

We bought this one recently and it's very competitively priced:

http://www.canadiannaturals.com/pages/c ... ctline.php

They only have this one grain-free variety. It does have turkey meal, but it's not the first ingredient. Acana uses "meals" as well for that matter. Although Orijen doesn't. The troops like the Canadian Naturals so far by the way. Although I wouldn't feed it all the time because of the fish. I've just heard many times that cats shouldn't eat fish all the time. But I don't know if that's really true...

We also tried a variety of this at one point:

Also with meat (not meal) as the main ingredient. And there's a $3-off coupon for this product at Smartsource if you buy it at Petsmart.

does anybody know if GO is any good?
I've been feeding my 55LB Chowsky Go! Sensitivity + Shine Salmon Formula for the last five months. Before that his foster was feeding that to him as well, so I kept him on it. He seems to like it, although he will pretty much eat anything. I do notice his coat is super soft which may or may not be related to eating that kibble. Dogfoodadvisor rates it a 4/5 and the Turkey one 5/5.
