IT’S ALL ABOUT THE MEAT
MOTHER NATURE MATCHED THE NUTRIENTS IN WHOLE GAME, FISH, AND FOWL TO PERFECTLY MEET THE NEEDS OF YOUR DOG. That’s why ACANA features a richly nourishing balance of meat, organs and cartilage, all of which deliver the nutrients your dog needs naturally, without long lists of synthetic additives.
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 the three meat questions.
HOW MUCH MEAT? (70%)
Entirely free of plant protein concentrates, ACANA Grasslands is loaded with 70% meat — up to twice as much as most pet specialty dog foods.
HOW MUCH FRESH MEAT? (1/2)
1/2 of the meat in ACANA is FRESH, supplying essential nutrients in their most nourishing form, and 1/2 are dried to provide a concentrated source of meat protein.
HOW MANY MEATS? (5)
ACANA Grasslands feature 5 fresh meats in WholePrey™ ratios that include meat, organs and cartilage to supply nutrients naturally and completely.
Grass-fed lamb – meat, liver, heart, kidney and cartilage, fresh from local ranches.
Free-run duck – fresh meat, organs, cartilage and liver from local prairie farms.
Nest-laid eggs – whole and fresh from local prairie farms.
Northern Pike – whole and fresh from Canada’s pristine lakes
Free–run turkey – meat, liver, heart, kidney and cartilage, fresh from local farms.
In nature there are no synthetic 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.
ONLY 3 SUPPLEMENTS | NATURAL NUTRIENTS
ACANA Grasslands rich meat and WholePrey™ inclusions supply nutrients naturally. By providing a concentrated, natural source of virtually every nutrient your dog needs to thrive, you eliminate the need for long lists of additives which is why Vitamin E, zinc and copper are our only added supplements
Feeding & Nutrition
YOUR DOG IS SPECIAL
Just like you, your dog is a unique individual and his feeding requirements will vary with his breed, environment, age and activity.
That’s why we suggest using this chart as a starting point, and monitoring your dog’s weight and adjusting his rations as needed. We also recommend feeding him 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 5-7 day period, gradually mix in ACANA, increasing the amount each day so that by day 7 you are feeding 100% ACANA.
He’ll love the change – we guarantee it!
EACH DOG IS UNIQUE AND FEEDING AMOUNTS WILL VARY. USE THIS CHART AS A INTIAL GUIDE AND ADJUST FEEDING ACCORDINGLY. FEED TWICE DAILY AND PROVIDE FRESH WATER AT ALL TIMES.
GESTATION: INCREASE FEEDING 25% TO 50%. LACTATION: FEED ‘FREE CHOICE’.
Unique compared to conventional foods, ACANA delivers more calories from protein and fat and fewer calories from carbohydrates, reducing the risk of obesity and promoting your dog’s peak health.
Metabolizable Energy is 3850 kcal/kg (462 kcal per 250ml/120g cup), with 36% from protein, 24% from vegetables and fruits, and 40% from fat.

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 features richly nourishing proteins and fats, and limits unwanted carbohydrates.
