ACANA Wild Atlantic meatmath

MOTHER NATURE MATCHED THE NUTRIENTS IN WHOLE FISH, FOWL AND GAME TO PERFECTLY MEET THE NEEDS OF YOUR DOG.

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE MEAT!

Modern dogs are built like their ancestors and we believe they should eat like them, too. How do you know if your dog’s food is Biologically Appropriate? Simple. Just answer our Biologically Appropriate ‘three meat questions’.

  • HOW MUCH FISH?

    ACANA Wild Atlantic is loaded with 70% wild-caught fish — more than twice as much as some pet specialty cat foods, and is entirely free of inappropriate plant protein concentrates such as potato or pea protein. Plus, all our fish is sourced from federally inspected facilities prior to inclusion in our foods.

  • HOW MUCH FRESH FISH?

    A full 50% of the fish in ACANA Wild Atlantic is FRESH or RAW supplying essential nutrients in their most nourishing form. Fresh means never frozen, so refrigeration is the only way we preserve our fresh fish, while our raw fish are flash-frozen at the source to lock in goodness.  The other half is dried or oils to provide a strong and natural source of richly nourishing fish protein and fat.

  • HOW MANY FISH?

    ACANA features 5 fresh fish in WholePrey ratios that include fish, organs and cartilage to supply nutrients naturally and completely.

    • Atlantic Mackerel – whole, wild and fresh from New England.
    • Atlantic Herring – whole, wild and fresh from New England.
    • Acadian Redfish – whole, wild and fresh from New England.
    • Silver Hake – whole, wild and fresh from New England.
    • Yellowtail Flounder – whole, wild and fresh from New England.

ZINC AND COPPER | OUR ONLY SUPPLEMENTS

In Mother Nature there are no supplements, and dogs & wolves derive all of their nutritional needs by consuming whole prey animals. An entire animal provides protein, vitamins and minerals, as well as calcium and phosphorus.

ACANA mirrors the natural diet, applying our Meat Math and incorporating WholePrey meat, organs and cartilage in ratios that deliver nutrients naturally. By providing a concentrated, natural source of virtually every nutrient your dog needs to thrive, you eliminate the need for long lists of synthetic additives. That’s why zinc and copper are our only supplements.

DESIGNED FOR CARNIVORES

Your dog is a carnivore and shares his anatomy with the gray wolf – which means his body, teeth and jaws, and short digestive tract is adapted for a diet rich in meat, 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 Wild Atlantic is loaded with nourishing fish proteins and oils, while excluding rice, potato and tapioca and long lists of synthetic ingredients found in some dog foods.

BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE

MEAT-BASED FOODS THAT MIRROR YOUR DOG’S EVOLUTIONARY DIET.

The gray wolf is ancestor to all domestic dogs. While years of breeding has 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 meats that dogs are evolved to eat, while limiting the long lists of synthetic ingredients that don’t belong in your dog’s natural diet.

  • RICH IN FISH (70%)

    Your dog is biologically adapted for a diet rich in meat. Your dog is anatomically designed to break down protein and fat from meat with her sharp teeth, single hinge jaw, and short digestive tract. That’s why we loaded ACANA Wild Atlantic with 70% wild-caught fish, including whole mackerel, whole herring, whole redfish, silver hake and yellowtail flounder, all sourced from New England’s cold Atlantic waters.

  • HIGH FRESH FISH INCLUSIONS (1/2)

    Half of the fish in ACANA Wild Atlantic is authentically fresh so it’s loaded with goodness and taste, The other 1/2 is dried or oils to provide a strong and natural source of nourishing fish protein and fat.

  • A VARIETY OF WHOLE FISH (5)

    In nature, your dog’s diet would include a wide assortment of prey animals that provide all the essential amino acids, vitamins and minerals needed for peak health. ACANA Wild Atlantic features a rich diversity fresh wild-caught fish in richly nourishing WholePrey ratios of fish, organs and cartilage to mimic your dog’s natural diet and provide essential nutrients. This eliminates the need for long lists of synthetic additives, so we only add zinc and copper.

  • RICH IN FISH PROTEIN (33%)

    ACANA is entirely free of pea or potato protein concentrates, commonly substituted for fish protein by many specialty dog foods to reduce costs. Instead, ACANA Wild Atlantic derives its rich protein content from premium fish ingredients (not plants), to support lean muscle mass and a healthy body weight, as well as nourish your dog according to his evolutionary needs.

  • FRESH FRUIT AND VEGETABLES (25%)

    Your dog’s natural diet contains almost no carbohydrate at all. That’s why ACANA features fruits and vegetables in limited quantities—meaning no extra non-essential carbohydrate to be stored as body fat.

    This helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels, reduces the potential for fat storage, and promotes overall good health.

At Champion Petfoods, our vision is to be trusted by Pet Lovers everywhere, and that means producing dog and cat foods and treats of exceptional quality. Whenever we enhance our diets we use our Biologically Appropriate mandate to guide us. Recent enhancements to our ACANA Singles foods included an increase in meat content from 50% to 60%. While an increase in meat is usually a good thing, trying to balance the nutrients in a food that relies on one animal source can be challenging. After adding more fish to our ACANA Singles Wild Mackerel food, we were not satisfied with the new vitamin and mineral balance in the enhanced food. Rather than keeping one ACANA Singles food at 50% and moving the other foods to 60%, we’ve decided to discontinue ACANA Singles Wild Mackerel effective immediately.
