ACANA Heritage PUPPY & JUNIOR 2kg

ACANA

FOR PUPPIES WEIGHING 9 TO 25 KGS 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.

 

IT'S ALL ABOUT THE MEAT

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

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 Puppy & Junior is loaded with 70% 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 local 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 in 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.

They might look different, but your puppy shares his anatomy with the grey wolf – which means he’s evolved as a carnivore and adapted for a diet rich in meat, protein, and fat.

Based on this biological fact, and to produce a nutritional analysis that mirrors the diet Mother Nature would provide for your puppy, ACANA features richly nourishing proteins and fats, while limiting unwanted carbohydrates.
