They might look different, but your dog shares his anatomy with the gray wolf, which means he’s evolved as a carnivore and 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 Red Meat + Wholesome Grains is rich in nourishing protein and fat, while excluding rice, potato, tapioca, and long lists of synthetic ingredients found in some dog foods.

RECIPES THAT MIRROR YOUR DOG’S EVOLUTIONARY DIET
The gray wolf is an ancestor to all dogs, and while years of breeding have produced hundreds of “different-looking wolves’, the internal workings of modern dogs and their wolf cousins remain unchanged. 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 carbs and unnecessary ingredients that don’t belong in your dog’s natural diet.
Our proprietary heart-healthy vitamin pack, a unique blend of B vitamins, E vitamins, taurine, and choline, promotes the proper function of nervous and circulatory system to ensure peak functionality.
Your dog is adapted for a diet rich in animal protein. That’s why we’ve loaded ACANA Red Meat + Wholesome Grains with 60% ranch-raised beef, Yorkshire pork, and grass-fed lamb, all sourced from regional farms.
Meat is at its most natural and nourishing when it’s fresh. That’s why half of the meat in ACANA Red Meat + Wholesome Grains is authentically fresh or raw, loaded with goodness and flavor, and the other half is dried to provide a concentrated source of protein.
In nature, dogs benefit from an assortment of prey animals. ACANA features a diversity of premium animal ingredients in richly nourishing WholePrey ratios of meat, organs, and cartilage or bone to mimic your dog’s natural, ancestral diet.
ACANA derives its rich protein content from quality animal ingredients, not plants, supporting lean muscle mass and nourishing your dog according to his evolutionary needs.
ACANA features vegetables, fruit, and botanicals in smart quantities – meaning no non-essential carbs to be stored as body fat. This helps maintain healthy blood-sugar levels, reduces the potential for fat storage, and promotes overall good health.
