DESIGNED FOR CARNIVORES

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 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 Red Meat is rich in nourishing protein and fat, while excluding grains and gluten, and long lists of synthetic ingredients found in some dog foods.

YOUR DOG IS SPECIAL

ACANA Red Meat benefits dogs of every breed and size. Just like you, your dog is a unique individual with feeding requirements that will vary with environment, age, and activity.

The table below provides a starting point, which you can adjust as needed to maintain optimum weight and peak conditioning. We suggest monitoring your dog’s weight and adjusting rations as needed. Feed twice daily and always keep fresh, clean water available.

† Use a standard 8 oz 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 Red Meat is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for All Life Stages, including growth of large size dogs (70 lb or more as an adult).

CALORIE DISTRIBUTION

Compared to some dog foods, ACANA delivers more calories from protein and fat and less from carbohydrates, promoting your dog’s peak health.

Metabolizable Energy is 3405 kcal/kg (388 kcal per 8 oz cup), with 30% from protein, 28% from carbohydrates, and 42% from fat.

BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE

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

The gray wolf is the 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 the long lists of synthetic ingredients that don’t belong in your dog’s natural diet.

  • RICH IN MEAT (60%)

    Your dog is biologically adapted for a diet rich in meat. That’s why we loaded ACANA Red Meat with 60% quality animal ingredients, including ranch-raised beef, Yorkshire pork, and grass-fed lamb, all sourced from regional farms.

  • HIGH FRESH MEAT INCLUSIONS (1/2)

    Meat is in its most natural and nourishing form when it’s fresh. That’s why half of the meat in ACANA Red Meat is authentically fresh and loaded with goodness and taste, and the other half is dried to provide a strong and natural source of protein.

  • A VARIETY OF MEATS (3)

    In nature, dogs benefit from an assortment of prey animals. That’s why ACANA features a diversity of fresh meat in richly nourishing WholePrey ratios of meat, organs, and cartilage or bone to mimic your dog’s natural diet and eliminate the need for long lists of synthetic additives.

  • RICH IN MEAT PROTEIN

    Entirely free of grains or gluten, 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.

  • FRESH VEGETABLES & FRUIT

    Your dog’s natural diet contains almost no carbs at all. That’s why ACANA features vegetables and fruit in limited quantities, meaning no extra, 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.
