FISH AND 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 fish and meat that dogs have evolved to eat, while limiting synthetic ingredients that don’t belong in a dog’s natural diet.
RICH IN FISH (70%) AND PROTEIN (35%)
Your dog is a carnivore and biologically adapted for a diet rich in fish and 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 fish and meat.
That’s why we loaded ACANA Pacifica with 70% wild-caught Pacific herring, pilchard, flounder, silver hake and rockfish, all fished off Vancouver Island and deemed fit for human consumption prior to inclusion in our foods.
ACANA derives its rich protein content from fish ingredients, not plants, supporting lean muscle mass and nourishing your dog completely.
HIGH FRESH FISH INCLUSIONS (1/2)
We use fresh fish in its most natural and nourishing form. That’s why 1/2 of the fish in ACANA Pacifica is fresh, and 1/2 is dried or oils to provide a concentrated source of nourishing fish protein.
AN ABUNDANT VARIETY OF FISH (5)
Consider the variety in the natural diet: fish today, a duck or goose tomorrow, eggs the next. Mother Nature provides a diversity of proteins and fats essential to the peak health of dogs.
That’s why ACANA Pacifica features a diversity of fish – wild-caught herring, pilchard, flounder, silver hake and rockfish – all whole and in richly nourishing WholePrey ratios of fish, organs, and cartilage or bone that mimic the natural diet.
Mother Nature matched the nutrients in whole fish to perfectly meet your dog’s needs. Meat provides protein and fat; organs supply vitamins and minerals; and cartilage and bone provide calcium and phosphorus.
ACANA features WholePrey ratios of fish, organs, and cartilage or bone that mirror nature and deliver nutrients in highly bioavailable form, dramatically reducing the need to add synthetic vitamins or supplements to our foods.
