Acana Heritage Puppy and Junior Biologically Appropriate Dog Food
FOR PUPPIES BETWEEN 9 AND 25 KG AT MATURITY
By nature, all puppies are carnivores – biologically adapted for a diet rich and varied in meats, with smaller amounts of fruits, vegetables, and grasses.
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.
BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE™ MEAT-BASED FOODS THAT MIRROR YOUR PUPPY’S EVOLUTIONARY DIET.
The gray wolf is ancestor to all dogs. And while years of breeding has produced hundreds of ‘different looking wolves’, the internal workings of modern puppies and their wolf cousins remain unchanged, so it’s no surprise that their dietary needs remain the same too.
Our award-winning Biologically Appropriate™ philosophy is simple: mirror the quantity, freshness and variety of meats that puppies are evolved to eat, while limiting the carbohydrates and synthetic ingredients that don’t belong in your puppy’s natural diet. Zinc is the only Supplement found in Acana
