Although prescribed as a “single source” of protein for diet-sensitive dogs, most lamb diets contain chicken ingredients and inappropriate plant proteins.
That’s why Lamb & Okanagan Apple features unmatched inclusions of ranch-raised lamb as a single-source animal ingredient.
Free of high glycemic grains, ACANA features local fruits & vegetables, including 10% of Red Delicious Okanagan valley apples delivered fresh for unmatched flavor.

The ultimate food mimics the one Mother Nature intended your dog to eat!
Unmatched by any other single-source dog food, ACANA Lamb & Okanagan Apple is loaded with a full 45% of lamb, including a diversity of lamb meats that reflects your dog’s natural diet:
ACANA Lamb & Okanagan Apple is bursting with a full 35% of healthful fruits and vegetables, including Bartlett pears, spinach greens, butternut squash and a full 10% of Red Delicious apples – all delivered fresh each day (never frozen, no preservatives) from our rich prairie soils and sun-drenched Okanagan valley.
ACANA Lamb & Apple 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 with marine-source Omega 3 to support your immunity and luxuriant skin & hair coat – your dog’s outer symbol of health and vitality.
Respecting its ‘single-source’ heritage, ACANA Lamb & Okanagan Apple features marine algae as a rich, bioavailable and fish-free source of DHA, 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.

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!
