DESIGNED FOR CARNIVORES

They might look different, but your dog shares his eating 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 Free-Run Poultry is rich in nourishing proteins and fats, while excluding rice, potato and tapioca and long lists of synthetic ingredients found in some dog foods.

YOUR DOG IS SPECIAL

ACANA Free-Run Poultry benefits dogs of every breed and size. Just like you, your dog is a unique individual with feeding requirements that vary with environment, age and activity.

The table below provides a starting point, to be adjusted as needed to maintain optimum weight and peak conditioning. We suggest monitoring your dog’s weight and adjusting rations as needed. We also recommend feeding twice daily and insist that you always keep fresh, clean water available to your dog.

† 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 Free-Run Poultry is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for All Life Stages.

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 3475 kcal/kg (396 kcal per 8 oz cup), with 29% from protein, 29% from carbohydrates and 42% from fat.

BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE

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

The gray wolf is 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, 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 poultry 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 POULTRY (60%)

    Your dog is biologically adapted for a diet rich in meat. That’s why we loaded ACANA Free-Run Poultry with 60% poultry, including chicken, turkey and whole nest-laid eggs, all sourced from regional farms, and all from poultry from federally inspected facilities.

  • HIGH FRESH POULTRY INCLUSIONS (1/2)

    Meats are in their most natural and nourishing form when they’re fresh. That’s why half of the poultry in ACANA Free-Run Poultry is authentically fresh and loaded with goodness and taste, the other half is dried to provide a strong and natural source of protein.

  • A VARIETY OF POULTRY (3)

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

  • RICH IN POULTRY PROTEIN (29%)

    Entirely free of the pea or potato protein concentrates common in today’s dog foods, ACANA derives its rich protein content from premium animal ingredients (not plants), supporting lean muscle mass and nourishing your dog according to his evolutionary needs.

  • FRESH FRUIT AND VEGETABLES (29%)

    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.
