LOADED WITH 50% PORK
All dogs evolved as carnivores and Biologically Appropriate™ foods mimic the foods Mother Nature intended them to eat!
That’s why ACANA Pork & Butternut Squash is loaded with 50% pork, to nourish your dog according to his biological adaptation to a meat and protein rich diet.
Raised locally on Alberta farms, our pork arrives in WholePrey ratios including richly nourishing fresh meats, organs and cartilage — all of which deliver essential nutrients naturally, virtually eliminating the need for synthetic ingredients in our foods.
Infusions of freeze-dried pork liver increase palatability dramatically and naturally — perfect for fussy dogs and dog lovers alike.
*All pork ingredients are produced exclusively from pork passed fit for human consumption.
50% LOCAL FRUITS & VEGETABLES
ACANA Pork & Butternut Squash is bursting with a full 50% of healthful fruits and vegetables, including Butternut squash – all delivered fresh (never frozen, no preservatives) from our rich prairie soils and the sun-drenched Okanagan valleys.
Conventional Limited Ingredient foods often feature canola and sunflower oils, which do not contain a viable source of DHA and EPA essential fatty acids.
ACANA is different.
To support immunity and a luxuriant skin and hair coat, we infused each ACANA Single with DHA/EPA.
Respecting its single-source heritage, ACANA Pork & Butternut Squash features marine algae as a rich, bioavailable and fish-free source of DHA and EPA fatty acids that’s perfectly metabolized by dogs.
LOCALLY GROWN BOTANICALS
Organic sea vegetables and digestive botanicals — grown specifically for ACANA in British Columbia’s Fraser Valley — including chicory root which nourishes and tones your dog’s digestive tract.
To perfectly and naturally meet the dietary needs of dogs, ACANA SINGLES feature richly nourishing meats, organs and cartilage (from Single Animal Source) which provide nutrients naturally, eliminating all synthetic ingredients except zinc.
MEAT: abundant source of essential amino acids, so synthetics aren’t needed.
ORGANS: rich in all essential vitamins, so synthetic vitamins are not needed.
BONE & CARTILAGE: A rich natural source of minerals. ONLY ZINC IS ADDED.
ACANA Singles feature freeze-dried liver infusions (prepared in our own freeze-dry kitchens of course) which dramatically and naturally increases palatability, making ACANA Singles the perfect choice for fussy eaters.
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!
