Having evolved from the gray wolf, your dog requires a diet rich in protein from whole, quality animal ingredients.
ACANA American Waters + Wholesome Grains is brimming with protein and nutrients from whole, raw, wild-caught herring, mackerel, catfish, Acadian redfish, and perch, along with fiber-rich, gluten-free grains. Our animal ingredients include fish, organs, and bone, providing nutrients naturally, promoting peak health and keeping your dog happy, healthy, and thriving.
Your dog is a carnivore and shares his anatomy with the gray wolf, which means his body, teeth, jaws, and short digestive tract are adapted for a diet rich in animal protein and fat.
Based on this biological fact, and to produce a nutritional analysis that mirrors the diet Mother Nature would provide for your dog, ACANA American Waters + Wholesome Grains is rich in nourishing animal protein and oils, while excluding rice, potato, tapioca, and long lists of synthetic ingredients found in some dog foods.
Meat-based foods that mirror your dog's evolutionary diet.
The gray wolf is ancestor to all domestic 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 animal ingredients that dogs have evolved to eat, while limiting the long lists of synthetic ingredients that don’t belong in your dog’s natural diet.
