Prepared with fresh and local ingredients in our award-winning kitchens here in Alberta, Canada, ACANA LAMB & OKANAGAN APPLE keeps your cherished dog happy, healthy and strong.
Read our ingredients and we think you’ll agree!
All dogs evolved as carnivores and Biologically Appropriate foods mimic the foods Mother Nature intended them to eat!
That’s why ACANA Lamb & Okanagan Apple is loaded with 50% lamb, to nourish your dog according to his biological adaptation to a meat and protein rich diet.
Ranch raised on New Zealand’s North Island, our lamb arrives in WholePrey ratios including richly nourishing raw meats, organs and cartilage — all of which deliver essential nutrients naturally, virtually eliminating the need for synthetic ingredients in our foods.
Infusions of freeze-dried lamb liver increase palatability dramatically and naturally — perfect for fussy dogs and dog lovers alike.
*All lamb ingredients are produced exclusively from lamb passed fit for human consumption. ACANA’s lamb ingredients are produced exclusively from lambs that are passed fit for human consumption.
ACANA Lamb & Okanagan Apple is bursting with a full 50% of healthful fruits and vegetables, including Red Delicious Apples– all delivered fresh (never frozen, no preservatives) from our rich prairie soils and the sun-drenched Okanagan valleys.
Not only is ACANA Lamb & Okanagan Apple grain-free, but more importantly this unique Limited Ingredient Diet is free of high glycemic carbohydrates, such as rice, tapioca and potato.
Associated with obesity and diabetes, high glycemic carbohydrates break down quickly, causing a rapid and large rise in your dog’s blood sugar.
That’s why ACANA Lamb & Okanagan Apple features low glycemic fruits and vegetables – locally produced of course – that release sugar slowly, causing your dog’s blood sugar to rise less over a longer period of time. That means your dog’s sensitivity to insulin is beneficially increased, and the propensity for fat storage is decreased.
Conventional Limited Ingredient foods often feature canola and sunflower oils, which do not contain a viable source of DHA and EPA essential fatty acids.
ACANA is different.
To support immunity and a luxuriant skin and hair coat, we infused each ACANA Single with marine algae — Mother Nature’s original source of DHA and EPA that’s perfectly metabolized by dogs!
Organic sea vegetables and digestive botanicals — grown specifically for ACANA in British Columbia’s Fraser Valley — include chicory root, ginger root, peppermint leaf, lemon balm, all of which nourish and tone your dog’s digestive tract.
To perfectly and naturally meet the dietary needs of dogs, ACANA SINGLES feature richly nourishing meats, organs and cartilage (from Single Animal Source) which provide nutrients naturally, eliminating all synthetic ingredients except zinc.
MEAT: abundant source of essential amino acids, so synthetics aren’t needed.
ORGANS: rich in all essential vitamins, so synthetic vitamins are not needed.
BONE & CARTILAGE: A rich natural source of minerals. ONLY ZINC IS ADDED.
ACANA Singles feature freeze-dried liver infusions (prepared in our own freeze-dry kitchens of course) which dramatically and naturally increases palatability, making ACANA Singles the perfect choice for fussy eaters.
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 Lamb & Okanagan Apple is loaded with nourishing meat proteins and fats, while limiting unwanted carbohydrates and eliminating high-glycemic grains.

ACANA Lamb & Okanagan Apple is loaded with a full 50% of lamb, including lamb meat, liver, tripe and cartilage —all of which deliver nutrients naturally, dramatically reducing the need for synthetic ingredients in ACANA foods.
That’s why Zinc Proteinate is the only supplement in ACANA Lamb & Okanagan Apple.
Just like you, your dog is a unique individual and his feeding requirements will vary with his breed, environment, age and activity.
That’s why we suggest using this chart as a starting point, and monitoring your dog’s weight and adjusting his rations as needed. We also recommend feeding him 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 5-7 day period, gradually mix in ACANA, increasing the amount each day so that by day 7 you are feeding 100% ACANA.
He’ll love the change – we guarantee it!
