What does Biologically Appropriate™ mean?

Biologically Appropriate™

It’s simple really, our food mirrors the quantity, freshness, and variety of meats that dogs and cats are evolved to eat. Just like their ancestors, modern dogs and cats have anatomical features designed for a meat-based diet – a fundamental fact often overlooked by pet lovers.

ACANA’s richly nourishing meat inclusions mirror your pet’s evolutionary diet, excluding high-glycemic carbohydrates, vegetable proteins, synthetic additives and anything else that Mother Nature didn’t intend your dog or cat to eat.

ACANA foods follow nature’s 5 rules:

  1. Rich in meat and protein

Your dog or cat is adapted for a diet rich in meat and protein. That’s why ACANA IS LOADED WITH UP TO 75% MEAT—three times as much as conventional dog or cat foods — and ACANA is entirely free of plant protein ingredients.

  1. High fresh meat inclusions

With up to half of the meats included FRESH OR RAW, ACANA supplies essential nutrients in their most nourishing form, providing the natural savoury flavours and goodness that dogs and cats instinctively crave.

  1. An abundant variety of fresh meats

In nature, dogs and cats benefit from an assortment of meats, so ACANA features a diversity of cage-free poultry, nest-laid eggs, free-range meats and wild-caught fish that’s simply unmatched.

  1. Wholeprey™ meat ratios

Nature matched the nutrients found in whole prey animals to perfectly meet the dietary needs of dogs and cats. ACANA’s ratios of meat, organs and cartilage mirror the natural diet, eliminating the need for long lists of synthetic ingredients.

  1. Carbohydrate and glycemic limited

The natural diet contains few if any carbohydrates, so ACANA reduces carbohydrates and replaces fast carbohydrates (such as corn and rice) with low-glycemic fruits and vegetables.
