FOR ALL ADULT DOGS 7 YEARS AND OLDER
Senior 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.
Prepared in our award-winning kitchens from Canada’s best and freshest ingredients, Biologically Appropriate™ ACANA keeps your senior dog healthy, happy and strong — we guarantee it!

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE MEAT
Modern dogs are built like their ancestors and we believe they should eat like them.
How do you know if your dog’s food is Biologically Appropriate™? It’s simple, just answer the three meat questions.
HOW MUCH MEAT?
Entirely free of plant protein concentrates, ACANA Senior 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 | OUR 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.
They might look different, but your puppy shares his anatomy with the grey wolf – which means he’s evolved as a carnivore and adapted for a diet rich in meat, protein, and fat.
Based on this biological fact, and to produce a nutritional analysis that mirrors the diet Mother Nature would provide for your puppy, ACANA features richly nourishing proteins and fats, while limiting unwanted carbohydrates.
