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 Prairie Poultry with 50% meat, including free-run chicken and turkey, delivered fresh from regional farms.
Entirely free of the pea or potato protein concentrates common in today’s conventional 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 typically low in meat protein and feature pea or potato protein concentrates.
HIGH FRESH MEAT INCLUSIONS (1/3)
We use fresh meat in its most natural and nourishing form. That’s why 1/3 of the meat in ACANA Prairie Poultry is fresh and 2/3 are dried, providing a concentrated, natural source of meat protein, supplying the essential nutrients and natural goodness that all dogs instinctively crave.
Compare to conventional dog foods which seldom contain authentically fresh meat.
AN ABUNDANT VARIETY OF MEAT (3)
Consider the variety in the natural diet: eggs today, a duck or goose tomorrow, fresh fish the next. Mother Nature provides a diversity of proteins and fats essential to the peak health of dogs.
Yet this variety is lost in conventional pet foods, which typically feature a single animal ingredient, such as chicken or lamb, that?s highly processed and rarely fresh.
That’s why ACANA features free-run chicken & turkey from prairie farms, providing a rich and nourishing diversity of meat 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 or bone provide calcium and phosphorus.
ACANA features WholePrey ratios of meat, organs, and cartilage or bone that deliver nutrients naturally, in highly bio-available forms, all of which dramatically reduce the need to add synthetic vitamins or supplements to our foods.
Compare to conventional dog foods which supplement over 20 different amino acids, vitamins, and minerals
