By nature, all dogs are evolved as carnivores, biologically adapted for a rich diet and varied in fresh meats with smaller amounts of fruits, vegetables, and grasses. That's why ACANA Heritage Free Run Poultry is loaded with free-run chicken, Tom turkey and whole nest-laid eggs – delivered fresh from local Kentucky farms in WholePrey™ rations to nourish your dog completely. 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 their evolutionary needs.
Your dog's natural diet also contains very few carbohydrates, which are recognized as a leading cause of obesity and diabetes. ACANA limits carbs and replaces fast carbs with low-glycemic fruits and vegetables. Prepared in the Kentucky DogStar® kitchens from America's best and freshest ingredients, this unique and Biologically Appropriate™ food is a delicious way to keep your dog healthy, happy, and strong.
