The gray wolf is the ancestor of all domestic dogs, and the Near Eastern wildcat is the ancestor of all domestic cats. While years of breeding have produced hundreds of ‘different-looking’ wolves and wildcats, the internal workings of dogs and cats remain unchanged.
The eating anatomy of modern dogs and cats is the same as their wild cousins, so it’s no surprise that their food requirements remain consistent.
ACANA’s richly nourishing meat inclusions mirror your pet’s evolutionary diet, excluding synthetic additives and anything else that Mother Nature didn’t intend your dog or cat to eat.
Dogs are born carnivores, bred for a diet that is rich and varied in fresh, whole animal ingredients.
Your growing puppy needs protein and fat from animal protein, to support their rapid development.
That’s why ACANA Puppy & Junior is brimming with fresh, free-run chicken and cage-free eggs from prairie farms, and wild-caught flounder from Canada’s Pacific, delivered fresh or raw by people we know and trust.
In WholePrey ratios of meat, organs, cartilage, and bone, ACANA delivers nutrients naturally, in their most nourishing form, for peak health and development.
