IT'S ALL ABOUT THE MEAT

WholePrey Diet -- Poultry | Organs | Cartilage

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, too.

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 Large Breed 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 strong and natural source of protein.

HOW MANY MEATS? ACANA Dog foods feature three fresh meats in WholePrey ratios that inlcude 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 -- 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; cartilage and bone deliver calcium and phosphorus.

ZINC | OUR ONLY SUPPLEMENT

ACANA mirrors the natural diet, incorporating meat, organs, and cartilage or bone in ratios that deliver nutrients in the most natural way possible, providing a concentrated and natural source of virtually every nutrient your dog needs to thrive. That's why the nutrients in ACANA are naturally present and are not synthetic.

DESIGNED FOR CARNIVORES

They might look different, but your puppy shares his anatomy with the grey wolf -- which means he's evolved as a carnivore and adapted for a diet rich in meat, protein, and fat.

Based on this biological fact, and to produce a nutritional analysis that mirrors the diet Mother Nature would provide for your puppy, ACANA features richly nourishing proteins and fats.
