NEW Heritage ADULT LARGE BREED

FOR LARGE BREED DOGS 1 YEAR AND OLDER

Just like his wild cousins, your large breed dog is a carnivore, possessing a biological need for a diet rich and varied in fresh whole meats.

That’s why we loaded ACANA Adult Large Breed with free-run chicken, wild-caught flounder and nest-laid eggs, in WholePrey™ ratios that nourish naturally, without long lists of synthetic additives.

Because excess weight can stress bones and joints, ACANA is free of fast carbohydrates such as tapioca or potato, providing extra meat proteins to promote lean muscle mass while managing body fat.

Prepared in our award-winning kitchens from Canada’s best and freshest ingredients, Biologically Appropriate™ ACANA keeps your big dog healthy, happy and strong — guaranteed.

Read our ingredients and you’ll be happy too!

BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE™

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

The gray 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 meats that dogs are evolved to eat, while limiting the carbohydrates and 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. That’s why we loaded ACANA Adult Large Breed with 60% meat, including cage-free chicken, wild-caught flounder and whole nest-laid eggs sourced from regional farms deemed fit for human consumption.

Compare to conventional dog foods which often contain very little meat, and seldom from the human consumption chain.

HIGH FRESH MEAT INCLUSIONS (1/3)

Meats are in their most nourishing form when fresh. That’s why one third of the poultry, fish and eggs in ACANA are authentically fresh and loaded with goodness and taste, and other two thirds are dried to provide a strong and natural source of meat protein. All meats are from animals passed fit for human consumption — a rarity among today’s pet food makers.

Compare to conventional dog foods which seldom contain authentically fresh meats.

A VARIETY OF WHOLE MEATS (3)

In nature, dogs benefit from an assortment of prey animals. That’s why ACANA features a diversity of free-run chicken, whole eggs and whole fish, all in richly nourishing WholePrey™ ratios of meat, organs and cartilage that mimic the natural diet, eliminating the long lists of synthetic additives in conventional dog foods.

Compare to conventional dog foods which feature one or two meats, seldom in WholePrey™ ratios, and feature long lists of synthetic additives.

RICH IN MEAT PROTEIN (31%)

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

Compare to conventional dog foods which are often low in protein or use inappropriate plant protein concentrates to elevate their protein claims.

CARBOHYDRATE LIMITED (30%)

Your dog’s natural diet contains very few carbohydrates, which are recognized as a leading cause of obesity and diabetes. That’s why ACANA limits carbohydrates and replaces fast carbohydrates (such as rice, potato and tapioca) with low-glycemic fruits and vegetables.

Compare to conventional dog foods which often exceed 50% carbohydrates, and feature high-glycemic ingredients such as potato, tapioca and rice.

ACANA benefits dogs of every breed and size. Just like you, your dog is unique

and adjusting rations as needed. We recommend feeding twice daily and always
keeping fresh, clean water available.

your veterinarian regularly. To help maintain freshness, we recommend sealing
the bag tightly and storing it in a cool, dry location.

DESIGNED FOR CARNIVORES

They might look different, but your dog shares his anatomy with
the grey 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 dog, ACANA is rich in nourishing proteins and fats, while
limiting unwanted carbohydrates.

 


 



 

MEAT MATH

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE MEAT

Modern dogs are built like their ancestors and we believe they
should eat like them.



How do you know if your dog’s food is Biologically Appropriate™?
It’s simple, just answer our Biologically Appropriate™ ‘three meat
questions’.

HOW MUCH MEAT?

Entirely free of plant protein concentrates, ACANA Adult Large Breed
is loaded with 60% meat — up to twice as much as most pet specialty
dog foods.

HOW MUCH FRESH MEAT?

One third of the meat in ACANA is FRESH, supplying essential
nutrients in their most nourishing form (the other two thirds is
dried to provide a strong and natural source of nourishing meat
protein)

HOW MANY MEATS?

ACANA features three fresh meats in WholePrey™ ratios that include
meat, organs and cartilage to supply nutrients naturally and
completely.

Free-run chicken – meat, liver, heart, kidney and cartilage, fresh
from local farms.

Nest-laid eggs – whole and fresh from local prairie farms.

Wild flounder – whole and fresh from North Vancouver Island.

In nature there are no synthetic food supplements, and dogs and
wolves derive their nutritional needs by consuming prey animals;
muscle meat provides protein; liver, kidney and tripe supply
vitamins and minerals; bones and cartilage deliver calcium and
phosphorus.

ZINC | OUR ONLY SUPPLEMENT

ACANA mirrors the natural diet, incorporating meat, organs and
cartilage in ratios that deliver nutrients naturally, providing a
concentrated and natural source of virtually every nutrient your dog
needs to thrive, which is why virtually all of the nutrients in
ACANA are naturally present and are not synthetic.
