MEAT-BASED FOODS THAT MIRROR YOUR DOG’S EVOLUTIONARY DIET.
The gray wolf is ancestor to all dogs. And 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 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 the carbohydrates and 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, and whole nest-laid eggs 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.
IT’S ALL ABOUT THE MEAT
Entirely free of plant protein concentrates, ACANA Prairie Poultry is loaded with 50% meat — up to twice as much as most pet specialty dog foods.
HOW MUCH FRESH MEAT?
1/3 of the meat in ACANA is FRESH, supplying essential nutrients in their most nourishing form, and 2/3 is dried to provide a strong and natural source of nourishing meat protein.
