MEAT-BASED FOODS THAT MIRROR YOUR DOG’S EVOLUTIONARY DIET.
The gray wolf is ancestor to all dogs. And while years of breeding has produced hundreds of ‘different looking wolves’, the internal workings of modern dogs and their wolf cousins remain unchanged, so it’s no surprise that their dietary needs remain the same too.
Our award-winning Biologically Appropriate™philosophy is simple: mirror the quantity, freshness and variety of meats that dogs are evolved to eat, while limiting the carbohydrates and synthetic ingredients that don’t belong in your dog’s natural diet.
RICH IN MEAT (60%)
Your dog is biologically adapted for a diet rich in meat. That’s why we loaded ACANA Free-Run Poultry with 60% poultry, including Cobb chicken, Tom Turkey and whole nest-laid eggs, all sourced from regional farms, and all from poultry deemed fit for human consumption.
Compare to conventional dog foods which often contain very little meat, and seldom from the human consumption chain.
HIGH FRESH MEAT INCLUSIONS (1/2)
Fresh meats are in their most natural and nourishing form. That’s why 1/2 of the poultry in ACANA Free-Run Poultry are authentically fresh and loaded with goodness and taste, the other 1/2 is dried to provide a strong and natural source of protein.
Compare to conventional dog foods which seldom contain authentically fresh meats.
A VARIETY OF MEATS (3)
In nature, dogs benefit from an assortment of prey animals. That’s why ACANA features a diversity fresh poultry in richly nourishing WholePrey™ ratios of meat, organs and cartilage to mimic your dog’s natural diet and eliminate the need for long lists of synthetic additives.
Compare to conventional dog foods which feature one or two meats, seldom in WholePrey™ ratios, and feature long lists of synthetic additives.
RICH IN MEAT PROTEIN (29%)
Entirely free of the pea or potato protein concentrates common in today’s dog foods, ACANA derives its rich protein content from premium animal ingredients (not plants), supporting lean muscle mass and nourishing your dog according to his evolutionary needs.
Compare to conventional dog foods which are either typically low in protein (and high in carbohydrate) or use inappropriate plant protein concentrates to elevate their protein claims.
CARBOHYDRATE LIMITED (30%)
Your dog’s natural diet contains very few carbohydrates, which are recognized as a leading cause of obesity and diabetes. That’s why ACANA limits carbohydrates and replaces fast carbohydrates (such as rice, potato and tapioca) with low-glycemic fruits and vegetables.
Compare to conventional dog foods which often exceed 50% carbohydrates, and feature high-glycemic ingredients such as potato, tapioca and rice.
