ACANA Pork & Butternut Squash is bursting with a full 50% of healthful fruits and vegetables, including Butternut squash – all delivered fresh (never frozen, no preservatives) from our rich prairie soils and the sun-drenched Okanagan valleys.
Conventional Limited Ingredient foods often feature canola and sunflower oils, which do not contain a viable source of DHA and EPA essential fatty acids.
ACANA is different.
To support immunity and a luxuriant skin and hair coat, we infused each ACANA Single with DHA/EPA.
Respecting its single-source heritage, ACANA Pork & Butternut Squash features marine algae as a rich, bioavailable and fish-free source of DHA and EPA fatty acids that’s perfectly metabolized by dogs.

To perfectly and naturally meet the dietary needs of dogs, ACANA SINGLES feature richly nourishing meats, organs and cartilage (from Single Animal Source) which provide nutrients naturally, eliminating all synthetic ingredients except zinc.
MEAT: abundant source of essential amino acids, so synthetics aren’t needed.

YOUR DOG IS SPECIAL
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!
† Use a standard 250ml/120g measuring cup. Serve dry or lightly moistened. See your veterinarian regularly. To help maintain freshness, we recommend sealing the bag tightly and storing it in a cool, dry location.
ACANA Pork & Butternut Squash is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for all life stages.
