RAINBOW TROUT, BLUE CATFISH & YELLOW PERCH
By nature, all dogs are evolved as carnivores, biologically adapted for a diet rich and varied in fresh meats with smaller amounts of fruits, vegetables and grasses.
That’s why we loaded ACANA Freshwater Fish with Rainbow trout from Idaho, whole Blue catfish from Kentucky, and wild Yellow perch from the Great Lakes – all delivered fresh or raw in richly nourishing WholePrey™ ratios.
Prepared in our Kentucky DogStar® kitchens with authentically fresh and regional ingredients, this unique and Biologically Appropriate™ ACANA food is a natural and delicious way to keep your dog healthy, happy and strong.

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.
Your dog is biologically adapted for a diet rich in meat. That’s why we loaded ACANA Freshwater Fish with 60% fish, including Rainbow trout, whole Blue catfish and wild Yellow perch, all sourced from American waters and all from fish deemed fit for human consumption.
Compare to conventional dog foods which often contain very little fish, and seldom from the human consumption chain.
Fresh meats are in their most natural and nourishing form. That’s why 1/2 of the fish in ACANA Freshwater Fish are authentically fresh or raw, and loaded with goodness and taste, and 1/2 is dried to provide a strong and natural source of protein..
Compare to conventional dog foods which seldom contain authentically fresh meats.
In nature, dogs benefit from an assortment of prey animals. That’s why ACANA features a diversity fresh fish in richly nourishing WholePrey™ ratios of meat, organs and cartilage, which mimics your dog’s natural diet and eliminates the need for long lists of synthetic additives ACANA foods.
Compare to conventional dog foods which feature one or two meats, seldom in WholePrey™ratios, and feature long lists of synthetic additives.
Entirely free of the pea or potato protein concentrates found 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 or use inappropriate plant protein concentrates to elevate their protein claims.
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 local, 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.
