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.
- HOW MUCH MEAT?
ACANA Puppy & Junior is loaded with 70% 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 are dried or oils to provide a rich, natural source of protein.
- HOW MANY MEATS?
ACANA Dog foods feature three fresh meats in WholePrey ratios that include meat, organs, and cartilage or bone to supply nutrients naturally and completely.
- Free-run chicken – meat, liver, heart, kidney, and cartilage or bone, fresh from prairie farms.
- Cage-free eggs – whole and fresh from prairie farms.
- Wild-caught 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; and cartilage or bone deliver calcium and phosphorus.
