    On my second 40 lb. bag of Victor Hi Pro +. I'm feeding my 2 1/2 yr. old female twice a day,,,,,,equal amounts (1 1/3 c. each meal). It has the highest k/cal content of any of the others I've tried before (450 k/cal. per cup). My griff's poops are always really firm, they're smaller in diameter, and there's less of it so it appears there isn't much filler in this kibble. The dog is utilizing the ingredients well, so it seems.

    I couldn't find any retailers shipping to Canada, it seems guys are shipping to a US pick up service, and driving across the border

    I've been buying it from Chewy and having it sent to a shipping depot in Blaine which takes me just over a half hour to get there. It lasts about 6 weeks and probably works out to about $80 which includes my shipping depot fee ($52 USD),,,,so about 2 bucks per pound. Pretty sure it's not available in BC, unfortunately.

    Where are you located?

I noticed it has a lot of corn meal in it but I have yet to find an owner whose say their dog doesn't thrive on it.

    Saw this as well today on a FB page. Neither my breed (WPG) or kibble brand (Victor) managed to get a single vote so no worries here. Sounds like a male golden retriever on Acana grain free kibble is not a good combo to have!
