ADULT SMALL BREED
FOR SMALL BREED DOGS 1 YEAR AND OLDER
Mother Nature evolved dogs of all breeds as carnivores, biologically adapted for a diet rich and varied in meats, with smaller amounts of fruits, vegetables and grasses.
That’s why we loaded ACANA Adult Small Breed with cage-free Cobb chicken and whole eggs from local prairie farms, wild-caught flounder from North Vancouver Island, and sun-ripened fruits & vegetables from the Okanagan Valley – all delivered fresh and preservative-free each day to nourish your dog completely.
Prepared from Canada’s best and freshest ingredients in our award-winning kitchens, ACANA is a delicious way to keep your little dog healthy, happy, and strong.
Read our ingredients and we think you’ll agree!
RICH & DIVERSE IN MEAT
The ultimate food mimics the one that Mother Nature intended your dog to eat!
Loaded with 60% of chicken, fish, and eggs, ACANA matches your dog’s evolutionary adaptation to a meat and protein rich diet. ACANA‘s rich variety of fresh meats mirrors the diversity and freshness Nature intended.
Cobb Chicken – cage-free and delivered fresh each day from local prairie farms.
Grade A Eggs – delivered fresh and whole each day from local prairie farms.
Wild-caught Flounder – delivered fresh each day from North Vancouver’s pristine waters.
Passed fit for human consumption, our local ingredients are truly fresh – so they’re never frozen or processed and arrive fresh and preservative-free each day.
FRESH, LOCAL FRUITS & VEGETABLES
ACANA Adult Small Breed is loaded with a full 20% of fruits and vegetables, including Red Delicious apples, Bartlett pears, butternut squash and Burbank potatoes – all delivered fresh each day from our prairie farms and the sun-drenched Okanagan valley so they’re bursting with natural goodness to support your dog’s peak health and immunity.
LOW GLYCEMIC, LOW CARBOHYDRATE
Rich in protein and low in carbohydrates to match your dog’s natural diet, ACANA Adult Small Breed is free of high glycemic grains such as rice and corn.
Associated with obesity and diabetes, high glycemic grains break down quickly, causing a rapid and large rise in your dog’s blood sugar. That’s why low glycemic and hypoallergenic steel-cut oats are ACANA‘s only source of grain.
Locally grown, our steel-cut oats are digested slowly, causing blood sugar to rise less over a longer period of time, so your dog’s sensitivity to insulin is beneficially increased and fat storage is decreased.
LUXURIANT SKIN & COAT
We infused each morsel of ACANA Adult Small Breed with marine-source Omega 3 (DHA, EPA) from wild-caught New Brunswick herring to support immunity and luxuriant skin & hair coat – your little dog’s outer symbol of health and vitality.
Organic sea vegetables and botanicals including juniper berries, lavender flowers, sun-cured alfalfa and peppermint leaf enhance metabolism while nourishing and toning your little dog’s digestive tract.

YOUR DOG IS SPECIAL
Just like you, your dog is a unique individual and his feeding requirements will vary with his breed, environment, age and activity.
That’s why we suggest using this chart as a starting point, and monitoring your dog’s weight and adjusting his rations as needed. We also recommend feeding him twice daily and always keeping fresh, clean water available.
When switching diets, it’s important to transition your dog as it takes time for his digestive system to adapt to the richer nutrient levels in ACANA. Over a 5-7 day period, gradually mix in ACANA, increasing the amount each day so that by day 7 you are feeding 100% ACANA.
He’ll love the change – we guarantee it!
