Know your meat math?Limited ingredients shouldn’t mean less meat.Modern dogs are built like their ancestors and we believe they should eat like them, too. How do you know if your dog’s food is biologically appropriate™? Simple. Just answer our biologically appropriate™ ‘three meat questions’:
- How much meat? Entirely free of plant protein concentrates, acana duck & pear is packed with 50% free-run duck, including fresh muscovy from nearby farms – all our duck is deemed fit for human consumption prior to inclusion in our foods.
- How much fresh meat? 1/2 of the duck in Acana Duck & Pear is fresh or raw supplying essential nutrients in their most nourishing form. Fresh means never frozen, so refrigeration is the only way we preserve our fresh meats, while our raw meats are flash-frozen at the source to lock in goodness. The other half is dried or oils to provide a strong and natural source of richly nourishing duck protein and fat.
- How many meats? Acana Duck & Pear features one single, easily digestible animal protein. Fresh duck meat, organs and cartilage are delivered daily in wholeprey™ ratios and supply virtually all the necessary nutrients, vitamins and amino acids naturally and completely.
Zinc In mother nature’s kitchen there are no synthetic supplements, and dogs and wolves derive all of their nutritional needs by consuming whole prey animals. Muscle meat provides protein; organs supply vitamins and minerals; while bones and cartilage deliver calcium and phosphorus. Acana mirrors the natural diet, applying our meat math and incorporating wholeprey™ meat, organs and cartilage in ratios that deliver nutrients naturally. By providing a concentrated and natural source of virtually every nutrient your dog needs to thrive, you eliminate the need for long lists of synthetic additives. That’s why zinc is our only added supplement.
