Rich & Diverse In Meat

The ultimate food mimics the one that Mother Nature intended your puppy to eat!

Loaded with 60% of chicken, fish, and eggs, ACANA matches your puppy's evolutionary adaptation to a meat and protein rich diet. ACANA's rich variety of fresh meats mirrors the diversity and freshness Nature intended.

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

Fresh, Local Fruits & Vegetables

We loaded ACANA Puppy & Junior with a full 20% of fruits and vegetables, including Red Delicious apples, Bartlett pears, butternut squash, and Burbank potatoes – all delivered fresh each day from our prairie soils and the sun-drenched Okanagan valley so they're bursting with natural goodness to support your puppy's peak health and immunity.

Low Glycemic, Low Carbohydrate

Rich in protein and low in carbohydrates to match your puppy's natural diet, ACANA Puppy & Junior is free of high glycemic grains such as rice and corn.

Associated with obesity and diabetes, high glycemic grains break down quickly, causing a rapid and large rise in your puppy's blood sugar. That's why low glycemic and hypoallergenic steel-cut oats are ACANA's only source of grain.

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

Luxuriant Skin & Coat

We infused each morsel of ACANA Puppy & Junior with marine-source Omega 3 from wild-caught New Brunswick herring to support your puppy's immunity and luxuriant skin & hair coat – your puppy's outer symbol of health and vitality.

Enhanced Metabolism

ACANA features organic sea vegetables and botanicals – including juniper berries, lavender flowers, sun-cured alfalfa and peppermint leaf to enhance metabolism while nourishing and toning your puppy's digestive tract.

Delivered Fresh Each Day

ACANA Puppy & Junior features an unmatched variety of local ingredients that are raised or fished by people we know and trust, passed "fit for human consumption", and then delivered to our door fresh each day!

Every Puppy is Unique

Just like you, your puppy 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 then monitoring your puppy'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 puppy 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.

Your puppy will love the change – we guarantee it!
