Overweight dogs benefit from a diet rich in protein to promote lean muscle mass, yet limited in carbohydrates that can contribute to excess body fat.
That’s why ACANA Light & Fit is brimming with meat, including free-run chicken, nest-laid eggs and wild-caught flounder delivered fresh from our region for unequaled goodness and taste.
To promote healthy blood sugar levels, ACANA is free of high glycemic ingredients like rice, corn or potato, and instead features fresh low-glycemic fruits and vegetables including whole pumpkin and squash.
HOW MUCH MEAT?Entirely free of plant protein concentrates, ACANA Light & Fit is loaded with 65% 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 | 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.
