They might look different, but your dog shares his anatomy with the gray wolf, which means he’s evolved as a carnivore and adapted for a diet rich in animal protein and fat.
Based on this biological fact, and to produce a nutritional analysis that mirrors the diet Mother Nature would provide for your dog, ACANA Free-Run Poultry + Wholesome Grains is rich in nourishing protein and fat, while excluding rice, potato, tapioca, and long lists of synthetic ingredients found in some dog foods.

MEAT-BASED FOODS THAT MIRROR YOUR DOG’S EVOLUTIONARY DIET.
The gray 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 meat that dogs have evolved to eat, while limiting the long lists of synthetic ingredients that don’t belong in your dog’s natural diet.
Our proprietary heart-healthy vitamin pack, a unique blend of B vitamins, E vitamins, taurine, and choline, promotes the proper function of nervous and circulatory system to ensure peak functionality.
Your dog is biologically adapted for a diet rich in meat. That’s why we loaded ACANA Free-Run Poultry + Wholesome Grains with 60% poultry, including chicken and turkey, plus cage-free eggs, all sourced from regional farms.
Meat is in its most natural and nourishing form when it’s fresh. That’s why half of the poultry in ACANA Free-Run Poultry + Wholesome Grains is authentically fresh and loaded with goodness and taste, and the other half is dried to provide a strong and natural source of protein.
In nature, dogs benefit from a diet of assorted prey animals. That’s why ACANA features a diversity of fresh poultry in richly nourishing WholePrey ratios of poultry, organs, and cartilage or bone to mimic your dog’s natural diet and eliminate the need for long lists of synthetic additives.
ACANA derives its rich protein content from quality animal ingredients, not plants, supporting lean muscle mass and nourishing your dog according to his evolutionary needs.
ACANA features vegetables and fruit in limited quantities, meaning no extra, non-essential carbs to be stored as body fat. This helps maintain healthy blood-sugar levels, reduces the potential for fat storage, and promotes overall good health.
