The gray wolf is the ancestor of all domestic dogs. The Eastern wildcat is the ancestor of all domestic cats. And while years of breeding has produced hundreds of ‘different looking wolves and wildcats’, the internal workings of dogs and cats remain unchanged.
The eating anatomy of modern dogs and cats is the same as their wild cousins, so it’s no surprise that their food requirements remain consistent.
THE BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE CONCEPT IS SIMPLE: MIRROR THE QUANTITY, FRESHNESS AND VARIETY OF MEATS THAT NATURE EVOLVED DOGS AND CATS TO EAT.
ACANA’s richly nourishing meat inclusions mirror your pet’s evolutionary diet, excluding rice, potato and tapioca, vegetable proteins, synthetic additives and anything else Mother Nature didn’t intend your dog or cat to eat.
ACANA FOODS FOLLOW NATURE’S 5 RULES:
1. RICH IN MEAT AND PROTEIN
2. HIGH FRESH MEAT INCLUSIONS
3. AN ABUNDANT VARIETY OF MEATS
4. WHOLEPREY MEAT RATIOS
5. FRESH FRUIT AND VEGETABLES
