MEAT-BASED FOODS THAT MIRROR YOUR DOG’S EVOLUTIONARY DIET.
The grey wolf is ancestor to all dogs. While years of breeding has 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 meat that dogs have evolved to eat, while limiting synthetic ingredients that don’t belong in a dog’s natural diet.
RICH IN MEAT (70%) AND PROTEIN (35%)
Your dog is a carnivore and biologically adapted for a diet rich in meat. Equipped with sharp teeth, a single-hinge jaw, and a short digestive tract, domestic dogs are anatomically designed to break down protein and fat from meat.
That’s why we loaded ACANA Grasslands with 70% meat from grass-fed lamb, free-run duck, and freshwater fish.
ACANA derives its rich protein content from quality animal ingredients, not plants, supporting lean muscle mass and nourishing your dog completely.
HIGH FRESH MEAT INCLUSIONS (1/2)
We use fresh meat in its most natural and nourishing form. That’s why 1/2 of the meat and fish in ACANA Grasslands are fresh and 1/2 are dried or oils to provide a concentrated source of nourishing meat protein.
AN ABUNDANT VARIETY OF MEAT (5)
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.
That’s why ACANA Grasslands features a diversity of grass-fed meat, free-run duck, and freshwater fish, plus cage-free eggs, in richly nourishing WholePrey ratios of meat, organs, and cartilage or bone that mirror the natural diet.
WHOLEPREY MEAT RATIOS
Mother Nature matched the nutrients in whole 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.
ACANA features WholePrey ratios of meat, organs, and cartilage or bone that deliver nutrients in highly bio-available forms, dramatically reducing the need to add synthetic vitamins or supplements to our foods.
