Acana - Puppy & Junior
PUPPY & JUNIOR
Dogs are born carnivores, bred for a diet that is rich and varied in fresh, whole animal ingredients. Your growing puppy needs protein and fat from animal protein, to support their rapid development. That’s why ACANA Puppy & Junior is brimming with fresh, free-run chicken and cage-free eggs from prairie farms, and wild-caught flounder from Canada’s Pacific, delivered fresh or raw by people we know and trust. In WholePrey ratios of meat, organs, cartilage, and bone, ACANA delivers nutrients naturally, in their most nourishing form, for peak health and development.

DESIGNED FOR CARNIVORES
They might look different, but your dog 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 dog, ACANA features richly nourishing proteins and fats.

MEAT-BASED FOODS THAT MIRROR YOUR DOG’S EVOLUTIONARY DIET.
The grey wolf is ancestor to all dogs. While years of breeding have produced hundreds of ‘different-looking wolves’, the internal workings of modern dogs and their wolf cousins remain unchanged. So, it’s no surprise their dietary needs remain the same too.
Our award-winning Biologically Appropriate philosophy is simple: mirror the quantity, freshness, and variety of meat that dogs are evolved to eat, while limiting the synthetic ingredients that don’t belong in a dog’s natural diet.
