IT’S ALL ABOUT THE MEAT ns_dog_regionals_pacifica-meatmath
MOTHER NATURE MATCHED THE NUTRIENTS IN WHOLE FISH, FOWL AND GAME TO PERFECTLY MEET THE NEEDS OF YOUR DOG. That’s why ACANA features a nourishing balance of fresh whole fish, including organs and cartilage, all of which deliver the nutrients your dog needs naturally, without long lists of synthetic additives.
Modern dogs are built like their ancestors and we believe they should eat like them.How do you know if your dog’s food is Biologically Appropriate™? It’s simple, just answer the three meat questions.
HOW MUCH FISH? (70%)
Entirely free of plant protein concentrates, ACANA Pacifica is loaded with 70% fish — up to twice as much as most pet specialty dog foods.
HOW MUCH FRESH FISH? (1/2)
1/2 of the fish in ACANA is FRESH, supplying essential nutrients in their most nourishing form, and 1/2 are dried or oils to provide a concentrated source of nourishing fish protein.

Based on this biological fact, and to produce a nutritional analysis that mirrors the diet Mother Nature would provide for your dog, ACANA features richly nourishing proteins and fats, and limits unwanted carbohydrates.

YOUR DOG IS SPECIAL
Just like you, your dog is a unique individual and his feeding requirements will vary with his breed, environment, age and activity.
That's why we suggest using this chart as a starting point, and monitoring your dog's weight and adjusting his rations as needed. We also recommend feeding him twice daily and always keeping fresh, clean water available.
When switching diets, it's important to transition your dog as it takes time for his digestive system to adapt to the richer nutrient levels in ACANA. Over a 5-7 day period, gradually mix in ACANA, increasing the amount each day so that by day 7 you are feeding 100% ACANA.
He'll love the change – we guarantee it!
EACH DOG IS UNIQUE AND FEEDING AMOUNTS WILL VARY. USE THIS CHART AS A INTIAL GUIDE AND ADJUST FEEDING ACCORDINGLY. FEED TWICE DAILY AND PROVIDE FRESH WATER AT ALL TIMES.
GESTATION: INCREASE FEEDING 25% TO 50%. LACTATION: FEED 'FREE CHOICE'.
Unique compared to conventional foods, ACANA delivers more calories from protein and fat and fewer calories from carbohydrates, reducing the risk of obesity and promoting your dog’s peak health.
Metabolizable Energy is 3850 kcal/kg (462 kcal per 250ml/120g cup), with 36% from protein, 24% from vegetables and fruits, and 40% from fat.
DOGS AND CATS ARE EVOLVED AS CARNIVORES AND DESPITE A MODERN LIFESTYLE, THEIR ANATOMY REMAINS UNCHANGED. That's why we formulate ACANA with the same variety of fresh meats that cats and dogs would eat in their natural environment - keeping in mind the modern lifestyle of today's companion pet often means a reduced calorie requirement.
