MEAT-BASED FOODS THAT MIRROR YOUR DOG’S EVOLUTIONARY DIET.
The grey wolf is ancestor to all dogs. While years of breeding have produced hundreds of different-looking wolves, the internal workings of modern dogs and their wolf cousins remain unchanged. So it’s no surprise their dietary needs remain the same too.
Our award-winning Biologically Appropriate philosophy is simple: mirror the quantity, freshness, and variety of meat that dogs are evolved to eat, while limiting the synthetic ingredients that don’t belong in a dog’s natural diet.
RICH IN MEAT (50%) AND PROTEIN (29%)
Your dog is biologically adapted for a diet rich in meat. That’s why we loaded ACANA Classic Red with 50% meat from grass-fed lamb, ranch-raised beef, and Yorkshire pork, all sourced from regional ranches and farms.
ACANA derives its rich protein (29%) content from quality animal ingredients, supporting lean muscle mass and nourishing your dog according to his evolutionary needs.
Compare to conventional dog foods which are typically low in protein and meat (and high in carbohydrates) and use ingredients that aren’t deemed fit for human consumption.
HIGH FRESH MEAT INCLUSIONS (1/3)
We use fresh meat in their most natural and nourishing form. That’s why 1/3 of the meat in ACANA Classic Red is authentically fresh and 2/3 are dried or oils to provide a concentrated, natural source of meat protein, supplying essential nutrients and providing the natural flavours and goodness dogs instinctively crave.
Compare to conventional dog foods which seldom contain authentically fresh meat.
AN ABUNDANT VARIETY OF MEATS (3)
In nature, dogs benefit from an assortment of meats. That’s why ACANA Classic Red features grass-fed lamb, ranch-raised beef, and Yorkshire pork from regional farms and ranches, providing a nourishing diversity of proteins and fats to promote peak health.
Compare to conventional dog foods which feature one or two meats and have long lists of synthetic additives.
WHOLEPREY MEAT RATIOS
Mother Nature matched the nutrients in whole prey animals to perfectly meet your dog’s needs. Muscle meat provides protein and fat; organs supply vitamins and minerals; and cartilage and bone provide calcium and phosphorus.
WholePrey ratios of meat, organs, and cartilage or bone deliver nutrients naturally, dramatically reducing the need to add synthetic vitamins or supplements to our foods.
Compare to conventional dog foods which often don’t incorporate WholePrey ratios of meat, organs, and cartilage or bone.
