MOTHER NATURE MATCHED THE NUTRIENTS IN WHOLE GAME, FISH OR FOWL 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? Simple. Just answer our Biologically Appropriate ‘three meat questions’.
HOW MUCH MEAT?
Entirely free of plant protein concentrates, ACANA Grasslands is loaded with 70% meat, game and fish — more than twice as much as some pet specialty dog foods. Plus, all our meat is sourced from federally inspected facilities prior to inclusion in our foods.
HOW MUCH FRESH MEAT?
1/2 of the meats, game and fish in ACANA Grasslands is FRESH or RAW, supplying essential nutrients in their most nourishing form. Fresh means never frozen, so refrigeration is the only way we preserve our fresh meats, while our raw meats are flash-frozen at the source to lock in goodness. The other half is dried or oils to provide a strong and natural source of richly nourishing animal protein and fat.
HOW MANY MEATS?
ACANA Grasslands features 5 fresh meats in WholePrey ratios that include meat, organs and cartilage to supply nutrients naturally and completely.
- Grass-fed Kentucky Lamb – meat, tripe, liver and cartilage, fresh from local farms.
- Free-run Muscovy Duck– fresh meat, organs, cartilage and liver from local farms.
- Nest-laid eggs – fresh and whole from local Kentucky farms.
- Rainbow trout– fresh or raw from Idaho’s Snake River aquifers.
- Free-run quail – fresh from South Carolina farms
In Mother Nature’s kitchen there are no supplements, and dogs and wolves derive all of their nutritional needs by consuming whole prey animals. Muscle meat provides protein; liver, kidney & tripe supply vitamins & minerals; while bones & cartilage deliver calcium & phosphorus.
ACANA mirrors the natural diet, applying our Meat Math and incorporating WholePrey meat, organs and cartilage in ratios that deliver nutrients naturally. By providing a concentrated source of the nutrients your dog needs to thrive, you eliminate the need for long lists of additives. That’s why zinc is our only added supplement.
