Acana Heritage Senior Dry Dog Food Information
Senior dogs are best fed a diet rich in meat proteins to support lean muscle mass, yet limited in carbohydrates which can lead to obesity and diabetes. ACANA Senior features higher protein levels from richly nourishing free-run chicken, nest-laid eggs and whole wild-caught flounder. Prepared in our award-winning kitchens from Canada’s best and freshest ingredients, Biologically Appropriate™ ACANA keeps your senior dog healthy, happy and strong.
- Rich in Meat (65%) including cage-free chicken, wild-caught flounder and whole nest-laid eggs sourced from regional farms deemed fit for human consumption.
- 1/3 of the poultry, fish and eggs in ACANA are authentically fresh and loaded with goodness and taste, and other 2/3 are dried to provide a strong and natural source of meat protein.
- Contains very few carbohydrates, which are recognized as a leading cause of obesity and diabetes.
