ACANA Heritage Senior Dry Dog Food
FOR ALL ADULT DOGS 7 YEARS AND OLDER
Senior dogs are best fed a diet rich in meat proteins to support lean muscle mass and promote a healthy body weight for peak health.
ACANA Senior features higher protein levels from richly nourishing free-run chicken, cage-free eggs, and whole, wild-caught flounder that are delivered to our kitchen fresh or raw, so they’re loaded with goodness and taste.
To promote healthy blood-sugar levels, ACANA Senior replaces grains and gluten with farm-fresh vegetables and fruits, such as pumpkin and squash.
Prepared in our award-winning kitchen from Canada’s best and freshest ingredients, Biologically Appropriate ACANA keeps your senior dog 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 too.
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 Senior is loaded with 65% 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 strong and natural source of protein.
HOW MANY MEATS?
ACANA for Dogs foods feature 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, 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 and bone deliver calcium and phosphorus.

DESIGNED FOR CARNIVORES
They might look different, but your dog 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 dog, ACANA features richly nourishing proteins and fat.
