PUPPY AND JUNIOR

FOR PUPPIES BETWEEN 9 AND 25 KG AT MATURITY

By nature, all puppies are carnivores which means they’re biologically adapted for a diet rich and varied in fresh whole meats with smaller amounts of fruits and vegetables.

That’s why ACANA Puppy & Junior is brimming with free-run chicken and nest-laid eggs from local prairie farms, and wild-caught flounder from North Vancouver Island, delivered fresh to nourish peak health.

Free of grains and fast carbohydrates such as rice, tapioca or potato, ACANA is rich in meat proteins to promote your puppy’s peak development and conditioning.

Made in our award-winning kitchens from Canada’s best and freshest ingredients, Biologically Appropriate™ ACANA is guaranteed to keep your puppy healthy, happy and strong.

Read our ingredients and we think you’ll agree!

BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE™

MEAT-BASED FOODS THAT MIRROR YOUR PUPPY’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 puppies 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 puppies are evolved to eat, while limiting the carbohydrates and synthetic ingredients that don’t belong in your puppy’s natural diet.

RICH IN MEAT (70%)

Your puppy is biologically adapted for a diet rich in meat. That’s why we loaded ACANA Puppy & Junior with 70% 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 puppy foods which often contain very little meat, and seldom from the human consumption chain.

HIGH FRESH MEAT INCLUSIONS (1/3)

Fresh meats are in their most natural and nourishing form. That’s why 1/3 of the poultry, fish and eggs in ACANA are authentically fresh and loaded with goodness and taste, and other 2/3 are dried to provide a strong and natural source of meat protein. All animals deemed 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 (33%)

Entirely free of the pea or potato protein concentrates common in today’s conventional 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 either typically low in protein (and high in carbohydrate) or use inappropriate plant protein concentrates to elevate their protein claims.

CARBOHYDRATE LIMITED (25%)

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.

Feeding & Nutrition

FEEDING GUIDELINES

YOUR PUPPY IS SPECIAL

ACANA benefits puppies of every breed and size. Just like you, your puppy is a unique individual with feeding requirements that 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 puppy’s weight and adjusting rations as needed. We recommend feeding twice daily and always keeping fresh, clean water available.

† Use a standard 250ml/120g 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.

GESTATION: INCREASE FEEDING 25% TO 50%. LACTATION: FEED ‘FREE CHOICE’.
