Limited ingredient doesn’t mean less meat.
ACANA Singles are brimming with 65% whole animal ingredients from a single source, including free-run turkey or duck, Yorkshire pork, grass-fed lamb, or ranch-raised beef. Infused with freeze-dried liver for an extra burst of delicious flavor, ACANA Singles offer your dog complete and balanced nutrition with one animal protein, making them perfect for food sensitivities or choosy eaters.
A. We are enhancing our five grain-free ACANA Singles diets. This includes the ACANA Turkey & Greens, Duck & Pear, Pork & Squash, Lamb & Apple, and Beef & Pumpkin diets.
The changes to the ACANA Singles diets include increasing the percentage of animal-derived ingredients to 65%, from 60%. These changes provide exceptional nutrition and enhanced taste.
A. These diets are new recipes, so a transition onto the new ACANA Singles diets is recommended. Dogs who are currently on ACANA will be okay with a short transition of 50/50 for a day or two.
Dogs that are particularly sensitive, or new to ACANA, may benefit from a longer transition onto the new recipes. We recommend starting with 25% of the new ACANA diet with 75% of the previous diet, and gradually increasing the new diet over the course of a week.
A. Our new ACANA Singles are for All Life Stages, so they are appropriate for puppies as well as adult dogs. However, they are not formulated to meet the needs of a large-breed puppy.
A. We do not recommend feeding our new ACANA Singles diets to a large-breed puppy. Large- and giant-breed puppies take longer to reach their full adult size and have slightly different nutritional needs compared to medium-sized and small-breed puppies. Due to this extended growth period, they need a diet that will help to promote slow and steady development. Too much calcium has proven to be a factor that can cause rapid bone growth and calcification in large-breed puppies, which increases the risk for joint disease and skeletal deformities. AAFCO has establishedthe maximum calcium content for large-breed puppies to be 1.8% on a dry matter basis. Medium-sized and small-breed puppies can do well on foods with a higher calcium content, up to a maximum of 2.5% on a dry matter basis.
A. Our new ACANA Singles diets will be produced in our DogStar Kitchen, located in Auburn, Kentucky. They will be available to Pet Lovers in the USA.
