The ultimate food mimics the one that Mother Nature intended.
Loaded with 50% duck ACANA Duck & Bartlett Pear features duck inclusions and diversity unmatched by any other dog food:
ACANA Duck & Bartlett Pear is loaded with 30% of healthful fruits & vegetables, including Red Delicious apples, spinach greens, butternut squash, Burbank potatoes, and a full 10% of Bartlett Pears – delivered fresh (never frozen, no preservatives) from the sun-drenched Okanagan valley.
Rich in protein and low in carbohydrates to match your dog’s natural diet, ACANA Duck & Bartlett Pear 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.
We infused each morsel of ACANA Duck & Bartlett Pear with marine-source Omega 3 (DHA, EPA) to support immunity and luxuriant skin & hair coat – your dog’s outer symbol of health and vitality.
Respecting its single-source heritage, ACANA Duck & Bartlett Pear features marine algae as a rich, bioavailable and fish-free source of DHA and EPA fatty acids.
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 diet-sensitive digestive tract.
ACANA Duck & Bartlett Pear features an unmatched variety of local ingredients that are raised or fished by people we know and trust, passed fit for human consumption, and then delivered to our door fresh each day!

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!
