DESIGNED FOR CARNIVORES

They might look different, but your puppy shares his eating anatomy with the gray 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 puppy, ACANA Puppy & Junior is rich in nourishing protein and fat, while excluding grains and gluten, and long lists of synthetic ingredients found in some puppy foods.

YOUR PUPPY IS SPECIAL

ACANA Puppy & Junior benefits puppies of every breed and size. Just like you, your puppy is a unique individual with feeding requirements that vary with environment, age, and activity.

The table below provides a starting point, to be adjusted as needed to maintain optimum weight and peak conditioning. We suggest monitoring your puppy’s weight and adjusting rations as needed. We also recommend feeding twice daily and insist that you always keep fresh, clean water available to your puppy.

† Use a standard 8 oz 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 Puppy &a Junior is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for All Life Stages, including growth of large size dogs (70 lb or more as an adult)

CALORIE DISTRIBUTION

Compared to some puppy foods, ACANA delivers more calories from protein and fat and fewer calories from carbohydrates, promoting your puppy’s peak health.

Metabolizable Energy is 3575 kcal/kg (408 kcal per 8 oz. cup), with 30% from protein, 25% from carbohydrates, and 45% from fat.

 

BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE

MEAT-BASED FOODS THAT MIRROR YOUR PUPPY’S EVOLUTIONARY DIET.

The gray wolf is ancestor to all dogs. While years of breeding have produced hundreds of “different-looking wolves,” the internal workings of modern puppies 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 meat that puppies have evolved to eat, while limiting synthetic ingredients that don’t belong in your puppy’s natural diet.

  • RICH IN MEAT (60%)

    Your puppy is biologically adapted for a diet rich in meat. That’s why we loaded ACANA Puppy & Junior with 60% poultry, including free-run chicken & turkey, wild-caught fish, and cage-free eggs.

  • HIGH FRESH MEAT INCLUSIONS (1/2)

    Meat is in its most natural and nourishing form when it’s fresh. That’s why half of the poultry in ACANA Puppy & Junior is authentically fresh and loaded with goodness and taste, and the other half is dried to provide a strong and natural source of protein.

  • A VARIETY OF MEAT

    In nature, puppies benefit from an assortment of prey animals. That’s why ACANA features a diversity of fresh poultry and fish in richly nourishing WholePrey ratios of meat, organs, and cartilage or bone to mimic your puppy’s natural diet and eliminate the need for long lists of synthetic additives.

  • RICH IN MEAT PROTEIN (31%)

    ACANA derives its rich protein content from quality animal ingredients, not plants, supporting lean muscle mass and nourishing your puppy according to his evolutionary needs.

  • FRESH VEGETABLES & FRUIT(25%)

    Your dog’s natural diet contains almost no carbs at all. That’s why ACANA features vegetables and fruit in limited quantities, meaning no extra non-essential carbs to be stored as body fat.

    This helps maintain healthy blood-sugar levels, reduces the potential for fat storage, and promotes overall good health.
