DetailsAcana Senior Biologically Appropriate Dog FoodFOR ALL ADULT DOGS 7 YEARS AND OLDERSenior dogs are best fed a diet rich in meat proteins to support lean muscle mass, yet limited in carbohydrates which can lead to obesity and diabetes. ACANA Senior features higher protein levels from richly nourishing free-run chicken, nest-laid eggs and whole wild-caught flounder that are delivered to our kitchens fresh from our region so they’re loaded with goodness and taste. To promote healthy blood sugar levels, ACANA Senior replaces fast carbohydrates like tapioca or potato with low-glycemic fruits and vegetables such as pumpkin and squash.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. 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.
