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 meats that dogs are evolved to eat, while limiting synthetic ingredients that don’t belong in a dog’s natural diet.
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 Grass-Fed Lamb with 50% raw lamb, raised on regional ranches and deemed fit for human consumption.
Free of grains or gluten, ACANA derives its rich protein content from animal ingredients, not plants, supporting lean muscle mass and nourishing your dog completely.
We use fresh meat in its most natural and nourishing form. That’s why ½ of the lamb in ACANA Grass-Fed Lamb is fresh and 1/2 is dried to provide a concentrated source of nourishing meat protein.
ACANA Grass-Fed Lamb 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.
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 bioavailable forms, dramatically reducing the need to add synthetic vitamins or supplements to our foods.
Your dog has no nutritional requirement for carbohydrates and his natural diet contains very few, if any. Carbohydrates are widely recognized as a leading cause of obesity and diabetes – yet conventional dog foods often exceed 50% carbohydrate content.
That’s why ACANA limits total carbohydrate content and replaces fast digesting carbohydrates like rice, tapioca and potato with healthy, low-glycemic fruits and vegetables such as squash and greens. These enter the blood stream slowly, avoiding spikes in blood sugar and decreasing the potential for fat storage.
