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. 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. The ultimate food mimics the one that Mother Nature intended your dog to eat!

Why choose Acana? For one reason it's rich in protein and low in carbohydrates to match your dog's natural diet and 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.
It also promotes luxuriant skin & coat. We infused each morsel of Acana Adult Small Breed with marine-source Omega 3 from wild-caught New Brunswick herring to support immunity and luxuriant skin & hair coat - your dog's outer symbol of health and vitality.
Still need more reasons? It also enhances metabolism! Acana features organic sea vegetables and botanicals - including juniper berries, lavender flowers, sun-cured alfalfa and peppermint leaf to enhance metabolism while nourishing and toning your dog's digestive tract.
