IT’S ALL ABOUT THE MEAT
MOTHER NATURE MATCHED THE NUTRIENTS IN WHOLE GAME, FISH OR FOWL TO PERFECTLY MEET THE NEEDS OF YOUR DOG. That’s why ACANA features a richly nourishing balance of meat, liver, tripe, kidney 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 MEAT? (50%)
Entirely free of plant protein concentrates, ACANA Grass-Fed Lamb is loaded with 50% meat — up to twice as much as most pet specialty dog foods.
HOW MUCH FRESH MEAT? (1/2)
1/2 of the meat in ACANA Singles is FRESH or RAW, supplying essential nutrients in their most nourishing form, and 1/2 dried to provide a concentrated source of protein.
HOW MANY MEATS? (1)
ACANA Grass-Fed Lamb features a single animal protein in WholePrey™ ratios that include meat, organs and cartilage to supply nutrients naturally and completely.
Grass-fed lamb – meat, liver, heart, kidney and cartilage, raw from New Zealand.
In nature there are no synthetic supplements, and dogs and wolves derive their nutritional needs by consuming prey animals; muscle meat provides protein; liver, kidney and tripe supply vitamins and minerals; bones and cartilage deliver calcium and phosphorus.
ONLY 4 SUPPLEMENTS | NATURAL NUTRIENTSACANA Grass-Fed Lamb’s rich meat and WholePrey™ inclusions supply nutrients naturally.

GUARANTEED ANALYSISDESIGNED FOR CARNIVORES
They might look different, but your dog shares his anatomy with the grey wolf – which means he’s evolved as a carnivore and adapted for a diet rich in meat, protein, and fat.
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!
Serve dry or lightly moistened. To help maintain freshness, we recommend sealing the bag tightly and storing it in a cool, dry location.
GESTATION: INCREASE FEEDING 25% TO 50%. LACTATION: FEED 'FREE CHOICE'.
