GRAIN-FREE AND LOW CARBOHYDRATE
Rich in protein and low in carbohydrates to match your dog’s natural diet, ACANA Grasslands is free of high glycemic grains such as rice and corn.

Long associated with obesity and diabetes, high glycemic grains break down quickly, causing a rapid and large rise in your dog’s blood sugar.

Locally grown, our steel-cut oats are digested slowly, causing blood sugar to rise less over a longer period of time, so your dog’s sensitivity to insulin is beneficially increased and fat storage is decreased.
Grain-free and low in carbohydrates, ACANA causes your dog’s blood sugar to rise less over a longer period of time so his sensitivity to insulin is beneficially increased and fat storage is decreased for peak conditioning.

LUXURIANT SKIN & COAT

We infused each morsel of ACANA Grasslands with marine-source Omega 3 from wild-caught New Brunswick herring to support immunity and luxuriant skin & hair coat – your dog’s outer symbol of health and vitality.

ENHANCED METABOLISM
Organic sea vegetables and botanicals including juniper berries, lavender flowers, sun-cured alfalfa and peppermint leaf enhance metabolism while nourishing and toning your dog’s digestive tract.

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!
