SENIOR

FOR ALL ADULT DOGS (7 YEARS & OLDER)

Senior dogs are best fed a diet rich in meat proteins to support lean muscle mass, yet low in carbohydrates which can lead to obesity and diabetes.

That’s why ACANA Senior is rich in meat protein from local, free-run Cobb chicken and whole eggs, wild-caught flounder from Vancouver Island, and Okanagan fruits & vegetables – all delivered fresh each day.

Carbohydrates reduced, ACANA Senior features local steel-cut oats as a low glycemic, single source of grain.

Prepared from Canada’s best and freshest ingredients in our award-winning kitchens, ACANA is a delicious way to keep your senior dog happy, healthy and, strong.

Read our ingredients and we think you’ll agree!

READ OUR INGREDIENTS AND WE THINK YOU’LL AGREE.

RICH & DIVERSE IN MEAT
The ultimate food mimics the one Mother Nature intended your senior dog to eat!

Made with a full 60% of nourishing chicken, eggs and fish, ACANA Senior matches your dog’s evolutionary adaptation to a meat & protein rich diet. ACANA’s rich variety of fresh, local meats mirrors the diversity and freshness Nature intended for your senior dog.

   *  Cobb Chicken – cage-free and delivered fresh from local prairie farms
*  Grade A Eggs – delivered fresh and whole from local prairie farms
*  Wild-caught Flounder – delivered fresh from North Vancouver’s pristine waters
*  Passed fit for human consumption, our local ingredients are truly fresh – so they’re never frozen and arrive fresh and preservative-free each day.

FRESH FRUITS & VEGETABLES
ACANA Senior is loaded with a full 20% of fruits & vegetables, including Red Delicious apples, Bartlett pears, butternut squash and Burbank potatoes – all delivered fresh each day from local prairie farms and our sun-drenched Okanagan valley so they’re bursting with natural goodness to support your senior dog’s peak health and immunity.

LOW CARBOHYDRATE & LOW GLYCEMIC
Rich in protein and low in carbohydrates to match the natural diet, ACANA Senior is free of the high glycemic grains (such as rice and corn) found in conventional foods.

Long associated with obesity and diabetes, high glycemic grains break down quickly, causing a rapid and large rise in blood sugar – a major concern for senior dogs. That’s why low glycemic steel-cut oats are ACANA‘s only source of grain.

Locally grown, our oats are digested slowly, causing your senior dog’s blood sugar to rise less over a longer period of time, so sensitivity to insulin is beneficially increased and fat storage is decreased.

LUXURIANT SKIN & COAT
Each morsel of ACANA Senior is infused with marine-source Omega 3 (DHA, EPA) from wild-caught New Brunswick herring to support immunity and luxuriant skin & hair coat – your senior 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



FEEDING GUIDELINES 


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!
