Your Dog Is Special

ACANA benefits dogs of all breeds and life stages. Just like you, your dog is unique and feeding requirements will vary with environment, age and activity. The table below provides a starting point, to be adjusted as needed. Feed twice daily and always keep fresh water available.

† Use a standard 250ml/120g measuring cup. Serve dry or lightly moistened. See your veterinarian regularly. To help maintain freshness, we recommend sealing the bag tightly and storing it in a cool, dry location.

ACANA Pacifica is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for all life stages.

CALORIE DISTRIBUTION

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.

BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE

FISH AND MEAT-BASED FOODS THAT MIRROR YOUR DOG’S EVOLUTIONARY DIET.

The grey wolf is ancestor to all dogs. And while years of breeding has produced hundreds of ‘different looking wolves’, the internal workings of modern dogs and their wolf cousins remain unchanged, so it’s no surprise that their dietary needs remain the same too.

Our award-winning Biologically Appropriate philosophy is simple: mirror the quantity, freshness and variety of fish and meats that dogs are evolved to eat, while limiting the carbohydrates and synthetic ingredients that don’t belong in a dog’s natural diet.

  • RICH IN FISH (70%) AND PROTEIN (35%)

    Your dog is a carnivore and biologically adapted for a diet rich in fish and meat. Equipped with sharp teeth, a single hinge jaw, and a short digestive tract, domestic dogs are anatomically designed to break down protein and fat from fish and meat.

    That’s why we loaded ACANA Pacifica with 70% wild-caught Pacific pilchard, flounder, silver hake and rockfish, all fished off Vancouver Island and deemed fit for human consumption prior to inclusion in our foods.

    Entirely free of the pea or potato protein concentrates, ACANA derives its rich protein content from fish ingredients (not plants), supporting lean muscle mass and nourishing your dog completely.

  • HIGH FRESH FISH INCLUSIONS (1/2)

    We use fresh fish in its most natural and nourishing form. That’s why 1/2 of the fish in ACANA Pacifica are fresh, and 1/2 are dried or oils to provide a concentrated source of nourishing fish protein.

  • AN ABUNDANT VARIETY OF FISH (5)

    Consider the variety in the natural diet: fish today, a duck or goose tomorrow, eggs the next. Mother Nature provides a diversity of proteins and fats essential to the peak health of dogs.

    That’s why ACANA Pacifica features a diversity of fish – wild-caught herring, pilchard, flounder, silver hake and rockfish – all whole and in richly nourishing WholePrey ratios of fish, organs and cartilage that mimic the natural diet.

  • WHOLEPREY RATIOS

    In her infinite wisdom, Mother Nature matched the nutrients in whole fish to perfectly meet your dog’s needs. Meat provides protein and fat; organs supply vitamins and minerals; bones and cartilage provide calcium and phosphorus.

    ACANA features WholePrey ratios of fish, organs and cartilage that mirror nature and deliver nutrients in highly bioavailable form – dramatically reducing the need to add synthetic vitamins or supplements to our foods.

  • CARBOHYDRATE-LIMITED (25%)

    Your dog has no nutritional requirement for carbohydrates and his natural diet contains very few, if any. Carbohydrates are widely recognized as a leading cause of obesity and diabetes – yet conventional dog foods often exceed 50% carbohydrate content.

    That’s why ACANA limits total carbohydrate content and replaces fast digesting carbohydrates like rice, tapioca and potato with healthy, low-glycemic fruits and vegetables such as squash and greens. These enter the blood stream slowly, avoiding spikes in blood sugar and decreasing the potential for fat storage.

CHICKEN & GREENS / ADULT DOG FAQ

  4. Does this affect both Canada and the USA?
    The name change only affects Canada and our export market. This diet is not available in the U.S.
  5. Does this change affect the pricing of the product?
    No, this name change does not affect pricing.
  6. When will my bags have the new name?
    You can expect to see the new bags in-store by May 2018. However, there may be a longer transition period up to August 2018 as inventory is cleared out.

At Champion Petfoods, our vision is to be trusted by Pet Lovers everywhere, and that means producing dog and cat foods and treats of exceptional quality. Whenever we enhance our diets we use our Biologically Appropriate mandate to guide us. Recent enhancements to our ACANA Singles foods included an increase in meat content from 50% to 60%. While an increase in meat is usually a good thing, trying to balance the nutrients in a food that relies on one animal source can be challenging. After adding more fish to our ACANA Singles Wild Mackerel food, we were not satisfied with the new vitamin and mineral balance in the enhanced food. Rather than keeping one ACANA Singles food at 50% and moving the other foods to 60%, we’ve decided to discontinue ACANA Singles Wild Mackerel effective immediately.
