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 meat that dogs have evolved to eat, while limiting synthetic ingredients that don’t belong in a dog’s natural diet.
RICH IN MEAT (50%) AND PROTEIN (31%)
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 Free-Run Duck with 50% duck, raised free-run on regional farms.
HIGH FRESH MEAT INCLUSIONS (1/2)
We use fresh meat in its most natural and nourishing form. That’s why 1/2 of the duck in ACANA Free-Run Duck is fresh, and 1/2 is dried to provide a concentrated source of nourishing meat protein.
ONE ANIMAL PROTEIN SOURCE (1)
ACANA Free-Run Duck limits exposure to a single protein source, all in richly nourishing WholePrey ratios of meat, organs, and cartilage or bone that mirror the natural diet to provide all the nutrients your dog needs to thrive.
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.
