ACANA Heritage Puppy Junior Dry Dog Food
PUPPY & JUNIOR
FOR PUPPIES WEIGHING 9 TO 25 KGS AT MATURITY
By nature, all puppies are carnivores which means they’re biologically adapted for a diet rich and varied in fresh whole meats with smaller amounts of vegetables and fruit.
That’s why ACANA Puppy & Junior is brimming with free-run chicken and cage-free eggs from prairie farms, and wild-caught flounder from North Vancouver Island, delivered fresh or raw to nourish completely.
Free of grains or gluten, ACANA is rich in meat proteins to promote your puppy’s peak development and conditioning.
Made in our award-winning kitchen from Canada’s best and freshest ingredients, Biologically Appropriate ACANA is guaranteed to keep your puppy healthy, happy, and strong.
Read our ingredients and we think you’ll agree!
IT'S ALL ABOUT THE MEAT
Modern dogs are built like their ancestors and we believe they should eat like them.
How do you know if your dog’s food is Biologically Appropriate? It’s simple, just answer the three meat questions.
HOW MUCH MEAT?
ACANA Puppy & Junior is loaded with 70% meat — up to twice as much as most pet specialty dog foods.
HOW MUCH FRESH MEAT?
1/3 of the meat in ACANA is FRESH, supplying essential nutrients in their most nourishing form, and 2/3 are dried or oils to provide a rich, natural source of protein.
HOW MANY MEATS?
ACANA Heritage foods feature three fresh meats in WholePrey ratios that include meat, organs, and cartilage or bone to supply nutrients naturally and completely.
Free-run chicken – meat, liver, heart, kidney, and cartilage or bone, fresh from prairie farms.
Cage-free eggs – whole and fresh from prairie farms.
Wild-caught flounder – whole and fresh from North Vancouver Island.
In nature there are no synthetic supplements, and dogs and wolves derive their nutritional needs by consuming prey animals; muscle meat provides protein; liver, kidney, and tripe supply vitamins and minerals; and cartilage or bone deliver calcium and phosphorus.

DESIGNED FOR CARNIVORES
They might look different, but your puppy shares his anatomy with the grey wolf – which means he’s evolved as a carnivore and adapted for a diet rich in meat, protein, and fat.
Based on this biological fact, and to produce a nutritional analysis that mirrors the diet Mother Nature would provide for your puppy, ACANA features richly nourishing proteins and fats, while limiting unwanted and synthetic ingredients.
