IT'S ALL ABOUT THE MEAT
MOTHER NATURE MATCHED THE NUTRIENTS IN WHOLE FOWL, FISH AND GAME TO PERFECTLY MEET THE NEEDS OF YOUR DOG.
Modern dogs are built like their ancestors and we believe they should eat like them.
How do you know if your dog’s food is Biologically Appropriate™? It’s simple, just answer the three meat questions.
Entirely free of plant protein concentrates, ACANA Adult Small Breed is loaded with 60% meat — up to twice as much as most pet specialty dog foods.
1/3 of the meat in ACANA is FRESH, supplying essential nutrients in their most nourishing form, and 2/3 are dried to provide a strong and natural source of protein.
ACANA Heritage foods feature three fresh meats in WholePrey™ ratios that include meat, organs and cartilage to supply nutrients naturally and completely.
- Free-run chicken – meat, liver, heart, kidney and cartilage, fresh from local farms.
- Nest-laid eggs – whole and fresh from local prairie farms.
- Wild flounder – whole and fresh from North Vancouver Island.
In nature there are no synthetic supplements, and dogs and wolves derive their nutritional needs by consuming prey animals; muscle meat provides protein; liver, kidney and tripe supply vitamins and minerals; bones and cartilage deliver calcium and phosphorus.
ZINC | OUR ONLY SUPPLEMENT
ACANA mirrors the natural diet, incorporating meat, organs and cartilage in ratios that deliver nutrients in the most natural way possible, providing a concentrated source of virtually every nutrient your dog needs to thrive. That’s why virtually all of the nutrients in ACANA are naturally present and are not synthetic.
