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 carnivore 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 Heritage Meats recipe is an impressive 60% of beef, pork and lamb ingredients. This savory spread of Angus beef, Yorkshire pork, and Suffolk lamb are sourced from trusted regional Kentucky farms and ranches, and deemed fit for human consumption when they reach Acana’s DogStar® kitchen located in Kentucky. This variety of meat including liver and tripe, provides 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 proteinate.
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 Heritage Meats, and be sure to try their other Biologically Appropriate™ Heritage recipes— Free Run Poultry and Freshwater Fish!
