THE BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE™ CONCEPT IS SIMPLE: MIRROR THE QUANTITY, FRESHNESS AND VARIETY OF MEATS THAT NATURE EVOLVED DOGS AND CATS TO EAT.
ACANA’s richly nourishing meat inclusions mirror your pet’s evolutionary diet, excluding high-glycemic carbohydrates, vegetable proteins, synthetic additives and anything else Mother Nature didn’t intend your dog or cat to eat.
