Acana Singles Duck & Pear Dry Dog Food
Acana Singles Duck and Pear is an all-life-stages, limited ingredient diet that features an incredible 60% free-run Muscovy duck ingredients in whole prey ratios that include muscle meat, organ meat, and cartilage. Duck is a palatable alternative meat that is rich in protein and nutrients. This diet provides a unique fiber blend of whole lentils, whole peas, pears, and pumpkin. Lentils and peas also provide protein and low-glycemic carbohydrates, carbohydrates that help to stabilize blood sugar levels, help your pet feel fuller for longer, and help prevent excess weight gain. This diet is an ideal choice for picky puppies and dogs with protein sensitivities or allergies.
About The Manufacturer
Acana Singles are limited ingredient, single protein diets produced by Champion Pet Foods, a Canadian pet food company that specializes in making Biologically Appropriate pet diets: diets that are as close as possible to what the animal would naturally eat in the wild. All Champion Pet Food diets are made according to the whole prey model, which includes muscle meat, organ meat, bone, and cartilage in the diet. The whole prey model provides abundant sources of naturally-occurring amino acids, vitamins, and minerals, meaning that very few synthetic supplements have to be added to make the diet complete and balanced for your pet! Naturally-occurring nutrients are more bio-available than are synthetics, and are therefore of greater use to the body. Acana features fresh, regionally sourced ingredients that are preservative free and that are delivered to Champion Pet Food’s kitchens within two days of harvest. Acana Singles diets feature 60% meat and 40% fruits, vegetables, and botanicals.

YOUR DOG IS SPECIAL
ACANA Duck & Pear benefits your dog by providing the nutritional value that meets its individual needs. Just like you, your dog is a unique individual and his feeding requirements will 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 dog’s weight and adjusting amounts as needed. We recommend feeding 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 five-to-seven-day period, gradually mix in ACANA, increasing the amount each day so that by day seven you are feeding 100 percent ACANA.
He’ll love the change – we guarantee it!
† Use a standard 8-ounce 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.
