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 Puppy large 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.
