Limited ingredient shouldn’t mean less meat. That’s why we make five nourishing single-protein foods, perfect for choosy eaters or dogs with food sensitivities.
ACANA’s Biologically Appropriate limited ingredient foods are chock-full of quality animal ingredients, including grass-fed lamb, free-run poultry, Yorkshire pork, and ranch-raised meat, and then infused with freeze-dried liver, creating a nourishing diet with a delicious taste that dogs crave.
A. We are enhancing our five grain-free ACANA Singles diets. This includes the ACANA Turkey & Greens, Duck & Pear, Pork & Squash, Lamb & Apple, and Beef & Pumpkin diets.
The changes to the ACANA Singles diets include increasing the percentage of animal-derived ingredients to 65%, from 60%. These changes provide exceptional nutrition and enhanced taste.
A. These diets are new recipes, so a transition onto the new ACANA Singles diets is recommended. Dogs who are currently on ACANA will be okay with a short transition of 50/50 for a day or two.
Dogs that are particularly sensitive, or new to ACANA, may benefit from a longer transition onto the new recipes. We recommend starting with 25% of the new ACANA diet with 75% of the previous diet, and gradually increasing the new diet over the course of a week.
A. Our new ACANA Singles are for All Life Stages, so they are appropriate for puppies as well as adult dogs. However, they are not formulated to meet the needs of a large-breed puppy.
A. We do not recommend feeding our new ACANA Singles diets to a large-breed puppy. Large- and giant-breed puppies take longer to reach their full adult size and have slightly different nutritional needs compared to medium-sized and small-breed puppies. Due to this extended growth period, they need a diet that will help to promote slow and steady development. Too much calcium has proven to be a factor that can cause rapid bone growth and calcification in large-breed puppies, which increases the risk for joint disease and skeletal deformities. AAFCO has establishedthe maximum calcium content for large-breed puppies to be 1.8% on a dry matter basis. Medium-sized and small-breed puppies can do well on foods with a higher calcium content, up to a maximum of 2.5% on a dry matter basis.
A. Our new ACANA Singles diets will be produced in our DogStar Kitchen, located in Auburn, Kentucky. They will be available to Pet Lovers in the USA.
