DESIGNED FOR CARNIVORES

Your dog is a carnivore and shares his anatomy with the gray wolf – which means his body, short digestive tract, and teeth and jaws are 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 Duck & Pear is rich in nourishing proteins and fats, while excluding rice, potato and tapioca and long lists of synthetic ingredients found in some dog foods.

YOUR DOG IS SPECIAL

ACANA Duck & Pear benefits your dog by providing the nutritional value that meets its individual needs. Just like you, your dog is a unique individual and his feeding requirements will 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 dog’s weight and adjusting amounts as needed. We recommend feeding 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 five-to-seven-day period, gradually mix in ACANA, increasing the amount each day so that by day seven you are feeding 100 percent ACANA.

He’ll love the change – we guarantee it!

† Use a standard 8-ounce 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.

CALORIE DISTRIBUTION

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

Metabolizable Energy is 3405 kcal/kg (409 kcal per 8 oz. cup), with 32 % from protein, 26 % from carbohydrates and 42 % from fat.

BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE

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

The gray wolf is ancestor to all domestic dogs. While years of breeding have 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 meats that dogs are evolved to eat, while limiting the long lists of synthetic ingredients that don’t belong in your dog’s natural diet.

  • RICH IN MEAT (60%)

    Your dog is biologically adapted for a diet rich in meat. Equipped with sharp teeth, a single-hinge jaw, and a short digestive tract, domestic dogs are anatomically designed to metabolize protein and fat from meat. That’s why we loaded ACANA Duck & Pear with 60 percent duck, including fresh duck from nearby farms – and all sourced from federally inspected facilities.

  • HIGH FRESH MEAT INCLUSIONS (1/2)

    Half of the duck in ACANA Duck & Pear is delivered fresh and loaded with goodness and taste. Fresh means never frozen, so refrigeration is the only way we preserve our fresh meats. The other half is dried to provide a strong and natural source of duck protein.

  • WHOLEPREY DUCK 

    In nature, your dog’s diet would include a wide assortment of whole prey animals that provide all the essential amino acids, vitamins and minerals needed for peak health. That’s why ACANA Duck & Pear features richly nourishing WholePrey ratios of duck, organs and cartilage to mimic your dog’s natural diet, providing essential nutrients. This eliminates 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 limited ingredient foods, ACANA Duck & Pear derives its rich protein content from premium duck ingredients (not plants), that support lean muscle mass and a healthy body weight, as well as nourish your dog according to his evolutionary needs.

  • FRESH FRUIT AND VEGETABLES (26%)

    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.
