ACANA Puppy Recipe is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Proﬁles for All Life Stages, including growth of large size dogs (31.81kg or more as an adult).
Just like you, your dog or puppy is a unique individual and his feeding requirements will vary with breed, environment, age and activity. That’s why we suggest using this feeding recommendation as a starting point, and monitoring dog or puppy’s weight and adjusting amounts as needed. We also recommend feeding twice daily and always keeping fresh, clean water available. When switching diets, it’s important to transition your dog or puppy as it takes time for her 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. † 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. GESTATION: increase from 25% to 50% of the given amount. LACTATION: feed ‘free choice’.
