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 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 have evolved to eat, while limiting synthetic ingredients.
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 Wild Prairie with 70% meat, including free-run chicken & turkey, cage-free eggs, and wild-caught fish, all deemed fit for human consumption prior to inclusion in our foods.
ACANA derives its rich protein content from animal ingredients, not plants, supporting lean muscle mass and nourishing your dog completely.
We use fresh meats in their most natural and nourishing form. That’s why ½ of the poultry and fish in ACANA Wild Prairie is fresh, and 1/2 is dried or oils to provide a concentrated source of nourishing meat protein.
Consider the variety in the natural diet: eggs today, a duck or goose tomorrow, fresh fish the next. Mother Nature provides a diversity of proteins and fats essential to the peak health of dogs.
That’s why ACANA Wild Prairie features a diversity of free-run chicken & turkey, cage-free eggs, and wild-caught fish, all in richly nourishing WholePrey ratios of meat, organs, and cartilage or bone that mimic the natural diet.
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 form, 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 carbs like rice, tapioca and potato with farm-fresh vegetables and fruit such as squash and greens. These enter the blood stream slowly, avoiding spikes in blood sugar and decreasing the potential for fat storage.
