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.
