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 MEAT (60%)
Your dog is biologically adapted for a diet rich in meat. That’s why we loaded ACANA Adult Small Breed with 60% meat, including free-run chicken, wild-caught flounder, and cage-free eggs sourced from regional farms and deemed fit for human consumption.
Compare to conventional dog foods which often contain very little meat, and seldom from the human-consumption chain.
HIGH FRESH MEAT INCLUSIONS (1/3)
Fresh meats are in their most natural and nourishing form. That’s why 1/3 of the poultry, fish, and eggs in ACANA are authentically fresh and loaded with goodness and taste, and other 2/3 are dried to provide a strong and natural source of meat protein, all from animals deemed fit for human consumption – a rarity among today’s pet food makers.
Compare to conventional dog foods which seldom contain authentically fresh meats.
A VARIETY OF WHOLE MEATS (3)
In nature, dogs benefit from an assortment of prey animals. That’s why ACANA features a diversity of free-run chicken, cage-free eggs, and whole fish, all in richly nourishing WholePrey ratios of meat, organs, and cartilage or bone that mimic the natural diet, eliminating the long lists of synthetic additives in conventional dog foods.
Compare to conventional dog foods which feature one or two meats, seldom in WholePrey ratios, and feature long lists of synthetic additives.
RICH IN MEAT PROTEIN (31%)
ACANA derives its rich protein 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 either typically low in protein (and high in carbohydrate) or use inappropriate plant protein concentrates to elevate their protein claims.
