Description

Just like his wild cousins, your large breed dog is a carnivore, possessing a biological need for a diet rich and varied in fresh whole meats.

That’s why we loaded ACANA Adult Large Breed with free-run chicken, wild-caught flounder and nest-laid eggs, in WholePrey ratios that nourish naturally, without long lists of synthetic additives.

Because excess weight can stress bones and joints, ACANA is free of fast carbohydrates such as tapioca or potato, providing extra meat proteins to promote lean muscle mass while managing body fat.

Prepared in our award-winning kitchens from Canada’s best and freshest ingredients, Biologically Appropriate ACANA keeps your big dog healthy, happy and strong — guaranteed.

Read our ingredients and you’ll be happy too!

Modern dogs are built like their ancestors and we believe they should eat like them.

Meat Math

How do you know if your dog’s food is Biologically Appropriate? It’s simple, just answer the three meat questions.

HOW MUCH MEAT?

Entirely free of plant protein concentrates, ACANA Adult Large Breed is loaded with 60% meat — up to twice as much as most pet specialty dog foods.

HOW MUCH FRESH MEAT?

1/3 of the meat in ACANA is FRESH, supplying essential nutrients in their most nourishing form, and 2/3 are dried to provide a strong and natural source of protein.

HOW MANY MEATS?

ACANA Heritage foods feature three fresh meats in WholePrey ratios that include meat, organs and cartilage to supply nutrients naturally and completely.

  • Free-run chicken – meat, liver, heart, kidney and cartilage, fresh from farms.
  • Nest-laid eggs – whole and fresh from local prairie farms.
  • Wild flounder – whole and fresh from North Vancouver Island.

In nature there are no synthetic supplements, and dogs and wolves derive their nutritional needs by consuming prey animals; muscle meat provides protein; liver, kidney and tripe supply vitamins and minerals; bones and cartilage deliver calcium and phosphorus.

ZINC | OUR ONLY SUPPLEMENT

ACANA mirrors the natural diet, incorporating meat, organs and cartilage in ratios that deliver nutrients the most natural way possible, providing a concentrated and natural source of virtually every nutrient your dog needs to thrive. That’s why virtually all of the nutrients in ACANA are naturally present and are not synthetic.

Feeding Guidelines

ACANA benefits dogs of every variety. Just like you, your dog is unique 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 dog’s weight and adjusting rations as needed. We recommend feeding twice daily and always keeping fresh, clean water available.

CALORIE DISTRIBUTION

Unique compared to conventional foods, ACANA delivers more calories from protein and fat and fewer calories from carbohydrates, reducing the risk of obesity and promoting your dog’s peak health.

Metabolizable Energy is 3375 kcal/kg (405 kcal per 250ml/120g cup), with 32% from protein, 30% from fruits and vegetables, and 38% from fat.
