Reflecting our prairie heritage, ACANA Wild Prairie features cage-free Cobb chicken and whole eggs from local prairie farms, and wild-caught fish from our cold northern lakes – all delivered fresh each day! Grain-free to reduce unwanted carbohydrates, ACANA features regional vegetables, fruits and botanicals for a rich supply of natural trace elements and antioxidants. Made from our region’s best and freshest ingredients, ACANA keeps your cherished dog healthy and strong. Read our ingredients and we think you’ll agree!
The ultimate food mimics the one Mother Nature intended your dog to eat! Made with a full 60% of nourishing chicken, eggs, and fish, ACANA Wild Prairie matches your dog’s evolutionary adaptation to a meat & protein rich diet, and its variety of fresh, local meats mirrors the diversity of your dog’s natural diet.
In place of inappropriate cereal grains, ACANA Wild Prairie is loaded with a full 40% of fruits & vegetables including Red Delicious apples from the sun-drenched Okanagan valley, and butternut squash, Burbank potatoes and spinach greens from local prairie farms – all bursting with goodness to support peak health and immunity.
Rich in protein and low in carbohydrates to match your dog’s natural diet, ACANA Wild Prairie is free of high glycemic grains (such as rice and corn) found in conventional dog foods. Long associated with obesity and diabetes, high glycemic grains break down quickly, causing a rapid and large rise in your dog’s blood sugar. Grain-free and low in carbohydrates, ACANA Wild Prairie causes your dog’s blood sugar to rise less over a longer period of time so her sensitivity to insulin is beneficially increased and fat storage is decreased to achieve peak conditioning.
We infused each morsel of ACANA Wild Prairie with marine-source Omega 3 (DHA, EPA) from wild-caught New Brunswick herring to support immunity and luxuriant skin & hair coat – your 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 dog’s digestive tract.

They might look different, but your dog 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 dog, ACANA is loaded with nourishing meat proteins and fats, while limiting unwanted carbohydrates and high-glycemic grains.

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!
