IT’S ALL ABOUT THE MEAT!
Modern dogs are built like their ancestors and we believe they should eat like them, too. How do you know if your dog’s food is Biologically Appropriate? Simple. Just answer our Biologically Appropriate three meat questions.
HOW MUCH MEAT?
Entirely free of grains or gluten, ACANA Grasslands is loaded with 70% quality animal ingredients — more than twice as much as some pet specialty dog foods.
HOW MUCH FRESH MEAT?
1/2 of the meat, game, and fish in ACANA Grasslands are FRESH or RAW, supplying essential nutrients in their most nourishing form. Fresh means never frozen, so refrigeration is the only way we preserve our fresh meat, while our raw meat is flash-frozen at the source to lock in goodness. The other half is dried or oils to provide a strong and natural source of richly nourishing animal protein and fat.
HOW MANY MEATS?
ACANA Grasslands features fresh meat in WholePrey ratios that include meat, organs, and cartilage or bone to supply nutrients naturally and completely.
- Grass-fed Kentucky Lamb – meat, tripe, liver, and cartilage, fresh from regional farms.
- Free-run Duck– fresh meat, organs, cartilage, and liver from regional farms.
- Wild-caught Rainbow trout– fresh or raw from Idaho’s Snake River aquifers.
- Free-run quail – fresh from South Carolina farms
ZINC | OUR ONE AND ONLY SUPPLEMENT
In Mother Nature’s kitchen there are no supplements, and dogs and wolves derive all of their nutritional needs by consuming whole prey animals. Muscle meat provides protein; liver, kidney & tripe supply vitamins and minerals; and cartilage and bone deliver calcium and phosphorus.
ACANA mirrors the natural diet, applying our MeatMath and incorporating WholePrey meat, organs, and cartilage or bone in ratios that deliver nutrients naturally. By providing a concentrated source of the nutrients your dog needs to thrive, you eliminate the need for long lists of additives. That’s why zinc is our only added supplement.
