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 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 synthetic ingredients that don’t belong in your dog’s natural diet.
RICH IN FISH (50%) AND PROTEIN (29%)
Your dog is biologically adapted for a diet rich in meat. That’s why we loaded ACANA Wild Coast with 50% sustainable and wild-caught fish, including Pacific herring, arrowtooth flounder, and Pacific hake, all deemed fit for human consumption prior to inclusion in our recipes.
Entirely free of the pea or potato protein concentrates common in today’s conventional dog foods, 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 FISH INCLUSIONS (1/3)
We use fresh fish in their most natural and nourishing form. That’s why 1/3 of the fish in ACANA Wild Coast is authentically fresh and loaded with goodness and taste, and 2/3 are dried or oils to provide a concentrated, natural source of protein, supplying essential nutrients and providing the natural flavours and goodness dogs instinctively crave.
Our ingredients are from fish deemed fit for human consumption – a rarity among today’s pet food makers.
Compare to conventional dog foods which seldom contain authentically fresh fish or meats.
AN ABUNDANT VARIETY OF FISH (3)
In nature, dogs benefit from an assortment of meats and fish. That’s why ACANA Wild Coast features sustainable and wild-caught fish off Vancouver Island – whole Pacific herring, arrowtooth flounder, and Pacific hake – and provides 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
In her infinite wisdom, Mother Nature matched the nutrients in whole prey animals to perfectly meet your dog’s needs. Meat provides protein and fat; organs supply vitamins and minerals; and cartilage or bone provide calcium and phosphorus.
Richly nourishing whole fish provides a concentrated source of nutrients naturally, dramatically reducing the need to add synthetic vitamins or supplement to our foods.
Compare to conventional dog foods which often don’t incorporate WholePrey ratios of meat, organs, cartilage, or bone.
