DESIGNED FOR CARNIVORES

Your dog is a carnivore and shares his anatomy with the gray wolf, which means his body, teeth, jaws, and short digestive tract are adapted for a diet rich in animal 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 Lamb & Pumpkin + Wholesome Grains is rich in nourishing animal protein and oils, while excluding rice, potato, tapioca, and long lists of synthetic ingredients found in some dog foods.

YOUR DOG IS SPECIAL

ACANA Lamb & Pumpkin + Wholesome Grains benefits your dog by providing the nutritional value that meets their individual needs. Just like you, your dog is unique and their 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 their 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% 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 3370 kcal/kg (371 kcal per standard 8 oz cup), with 27% from protein, 28% from carbohydrates, and 43% 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 animal ingredients that dogs have 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 break down protein and fat from animal ingredients. That’s why we loaded ACANA Lamb & Pumpkin + Wholesome Grains with 60% lamb, sourced from regional farms. 

  • HIGH FRESH MEAT INCLUSIONS (1/2)

    Half of the lamb ingredients in ACANA Lamb & Pumpkin + Wholesome Grains are fresh or raw, so they’re loaded with goodness and taste. Fresh means never frozen, so refrigeration is the only way we preserve our fresh ingredients, while our raw ingredients are flash-frozen to lock in goodness.  The other half of ingredients are dried to provide a strong and natural source of richly nourishing animal protein and fat.

  • WHOLEPREY LAMB

    In nature, dogs benefit from consuming the entire animal, which provides all the essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals needed. ACANA Lamb & Pumpkin + Wholesome Grains features richly nourishing lamb meat, organs, and cartilage — WholePrey ratios that mimic the natural diet.
  • RICH IN ANIMAL PROTEIN (27%)

    Free of gluten, potato, or tapioca found in some dog foods, ACANA Lamb & Pumpkin + Wholesome Grains’ protein is derived from quality lamb ingredients (not plants). This supports lean muscle mass and a healthy weight — all while nourishing your dog according to his evolutionary needs.

  • FRESH VEGETABLES & FRUIT

    ACANA features vegetables and fruit in limited quantities—meaning no extra non-essential carbohydrates to be stored as body fat. This helps maintain healthy blood-sugar levels, reduces the potential for fat storage, and promotes overall good health.
