When wolves hunt, their nutrition comes entirely from their prey; after all, there are no herds of multivitamins roving the wild plains. As a descendent of the gray wolf, dogs are also biologically adapted for this meat-rich diet. Acana strives to mirror the menu your dog would choose in nature, by providing a proper ratio of meat, organs and cartilage to deliver nutrients the complete and natural way. No need for lots of synthetic supplements!
Acana’s Freshwater Fish recipe is an impressive 60% of sustainable fish ingredients. This banquet of Idaho rainbow trout, whole blue catfish from Kentucky, and wild yellow perch from the Great Lakes are always delivered authentically fresh or frozen raw, and deemed fit for human consumption when they reach Acana’s DogStar® kitchen located in Kentucky. This variety of fish meat, organs and cartilage provide nourishing protein, vitamins and minerals. Then vegetables, fruits and botanicals also sourced from regional farms round out the remaining 40% of this formula, plus zinc and copper.
Acana Heritage meals are a celebration of a 25 year tradition of fresh, quality pet foods, and a well-deserved reputation of trust. We’re sure your pup will fall in love with Freshwater Fish, and be sure to try their other Biologically Appropriate™ Heritage recipes— Free Run Poultry and Heritage Meats!
