LOADED WITH 50% DUCK
All dogs evolved as carnivores and Biologically Appropriate foods mimic the foods Mother Nature intended them to eat!
Thatﾒs why ACANA Duck & Bartlett Pear is loaded with 50% duck, to nourish your dog according to his biological adaptation to a meat and protein rich diet.
Raised cage-free in Ontario, Canada, our fresh duck arrives in WholePrey ratios including richly nourishing meat, organs, fat and cartilage ﾗ all of which deliver essential nutrients naturally, virtually eliminating the need for synthetic ingredients in our foods.

50% LOCAL FRUITS & VEGETABLES
ACANA DUCK & BARTLETT PEAR is bursting with a full 50% of healthful fruits and vegetables, including Bartlett pears ﾗ all delivered fresh (never frozen, no preservatives) from our rich prairie soils and the sun-drenched Okanagan valleys.
LOW GLYCEMIC, LOW CARBOHYDRATE
Not only is ACANA DUCK & BARTLETT PEAR grain-free, but more importantly this unique Limited Ingredient Diet is free of high glycemic carbohydrates, such as rice, tapioca and potato.
Associated with obesity and diabetes, high glycemic carbohydrates break down quickly, causing a rapid and large rise in your dogﾒs blood sugar.
Thatﾒs why ACANA DUCK & BARTLETT PEAR features low glycemic fruits and vegetables ﾖ locally produced of course ﾖ that release sugar slowly, causing your dogﾒs blood sugar to rise less over a longer period of time. That means your dogﾒs sensitivity to insulin is beneficially increased, and the propensity for fat storage is decreased.
Conventional Limited Ingredient foods often feature canola and sunflower oils, which do not contain a viable source of DHA and EPA essential fatty acids.
ACANA is different.
To support immunity and a luxuriant skin and hair coat, we infused each ACANA Single with marine algae ﾗ Mother Natureﾒs original source of DHA and EPA thatﾒs perfectly metabolized by dogs!
LOCALLY GROWN BOTANICALS
Organic sea vegetables and digestive botanicals ﾗ grown specifically for ACANA in British Columbiaﾒs Fraser Valley ﾗ include chicory root, ginger root, peppermint leaf, lemon balm, all of which nourish and tone your dogﾒs digestive tract.
