Your dog may not roam the wilderness like their ancestors did, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't feed them like they don't. ACANA makes only foods that are rich in meat and protein variety, with wholeprey meat ratios and limited carbohydrates, replacing fast carbs with low glycemic, healthy fruits and vegetables. With a state of art brand new kitchen in Kentucky, all ACANA foods are sourced and made right here in the USA by trusted farmers. With human grade ingredients that typically arrive at the kitchens within 48 hours of harvesting, fresh is the entire basis of ACANA's brand. Ingredients like heritage red meats from the Appalachian ranching country, free-run poultry and eggs, wild caught fish from New England, whole fruits and vegetables like Bartlett pears and butternut squash, and locally grown botanicals from Kentucky, ACANA believes the healthiest foods are made here at home in Kentucky, never outsourced. ACANA nourishes your pet's instinct for real, fresh meats and high quality grain-free carbohydrates. It's everything Mother Nature intended, and nothing she did not.
YOUR DOG IS SPECIAL
ACANA Duck & Pear benefits dogs of every breed and size. Just like you, your dog is a unique individual and his feeding requirements will 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 dog’s weight and adjusting amounts as needed. We recommend feeding twice daily and always keeping fresh, clean water available.
† Use a standard 8-ounce 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.
ACANA Duck & Pear is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for All Life Stages.
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!
