FEEDING YOUR PUPPY IS SPECIAL
ACANA Puppy & Junior benefits puppies of every breed and size. Just like you, your puppy is a unique individual with feeding requirements that vary with environment, age and activity.
The table below provides a starting point, to be adjusted as needed to maintain optimum weight and peak conditioning. We suggest monitoring your puppy’s weight and adjusting rations as needed. We also recommend feeding twice daily and insist that you always keep fresh, clean water available to your puppy.
† Use a standard 8 oz 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 Puppy & Junior is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for All Life Stages.

MEAT-BASED FOODS THAT MIRROR YOUR PUPPY’S EVOLUTIONARY DIET.
The gray wolf is ancestor to all dogs. And while years of breeding have produced hundreds of “different-looking wolves,” the internal workings of modern puppies and their wolf cousins remain unchanged, so it’s no surprise that their dietary needs remain the same too.
Our award-winning Biologically Appropriate™ philosophy is simple: mirror the quantity, freshness and variety of meats that puppies are evolved to eat, while limiting the carbohydrates and synthetic ingredients that don’t belong in your puppy’s natural diet.
