DESIGNED FOR CARNIVORES
Our Biologically Appropriate foods are designed to match the eating anatomy of dogs and to produce a nutritional analysis that mirrors the natural diet. We’ve packed ACANA with richly nourishing proteins and fats, and no grains or gluten.
ACANA benefits dogs of all breeds and life stages. Just like you, your dog is unique and feeding requirements will vary with environment, age, and activity. The table below provides a starting point, to be adjusted as needed. Feed twice daily and always keep fresh water available.
† Use a standard 250ml/120g measuring cup. Serve dry or lightly moistened. See your veterinarian regularly. To help maintain freshness, we recommend sealing the bag tightly and storing it in a cool, dry location.
ACANA Ranchlands is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for all life stages.
Unique compared to conventional foods, ACANA delivers more calories from protein and fat and fewer calories from carbohydrates, reducing the risk of obesity and promoting your dog’s peak health.
Metabolizable Energy is 3790 kcal/kg (455 kcal per 250ml/120g cup), with 37% from protein, 23% from vegetables and fruits, and 40% from fat.
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 meat that dogs have evolved to eat, while limiting synthetic ingredients that don’t belong in a dog’s natural diet.
RICH IN MEAT (70%) AND PROTEIN (35%)
Your dog is a carnivore and biologically adapted for a diet rich in 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 meat.
That’s why we loaded ACANA Ranchlands with 70% meat from ranch-raised beef, grass-fed lamb, Yorkshire pork, plains bison, and wild-caught walleye.
ACANA derives its rich protein content from animal ingredients, not plants, supporting lean muscle mass and nourishing your dog completely.
HIGH FRESH MEAT INCLUSIONS (1/2)
We use fresh meat in its most natural and nourishing form. That’s why ½ of the meat and fish in ACANA Ranchlands are fresh, and 1/2 are dried or oils to provide a concentrated source of nourishing meat protein.
AN ABUNDANT VARIETY OF MEAT (5)
Consider the variety in the natural diet: eggs today, a duck or goose tomorrow, fresh fish the next. Mother Nature provides a diversity of proteins and fats essential to the peak health of dogs.
That’s why ACANA Ranchlands features a diversity of ranch-raised beef, grass-fed lamb, Yorkshire pork, plains bison, and wild-caught walleye in richly nourishing WholePrey ratios of meat, organs, and cartilage or bone that mirror the natural diet.
WHOLEPREY MEAT RATIOS
Mother Nature matched the nutrients in whole animals to perfectly meet your dog’s needs. Muscle meat provides protein and fat; organs supply vitamins and minerals; and cartilage and bone provide calcium and phosphorus.
ACANA features WholePrey ratios of meat, organs, and cartilage or bone that deliver nutrients in highly bio-available forms, dramatically reducing the need to add synthetic vitamins or supplements to our foods.
