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 proteins and fats, while excluding rice, potato and tapioca 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 & Junior is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for All Life Stages.

BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE

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

The gray wolf is ancestor to all dogs. And 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 meats that puppies are evolved to eat, while limiting the carbohydrates and 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 chicken, turkey and whole nest-laid eggs, all sourced from regional farms, and all from poultry sourced from federally inspected facilities.

  • HIGH FRESH MEAT INCLUSIONS (1/2)

    Meats are in their most natural and nourishing form when they’re fresh. That’s why half of the poultry in ACANA Free-Run Poultry is authentically fresh and loaded with goodness and taste, the other half is dried to provide a strong and natural source of protein.

  • A VARIETY OF MEATS (4)

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

  • RICH IN MEAT PROTEIN (31%)

    Entirely free of the pea or potato protein concentrates common in today’s puppy foods, ACANA derives its rich protein content from premium animal ingredients (not plants), supporting lean muscle mass and nourishing your puppy according to his evolutionary needs.

  • FRESH FRUIT AND VEGETABLES (25%)

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

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