ACANA Wild Coast features sustainable fish, wild-caught off North Vancouver Island’s cold Pacific waters and whisked to our kitchen FRESH and WHOLE, so they’re bursting with goodness and taste.
Free of high-glycaemic carbohydrates, ACANA Classics feature low-glycaemic and locally grown steel-cut oats that helps to support stable blood sugar and peak physical conditioning.
MEAT-BASED FOODS THAT MIRROR YOUR DOG’S EVOLUTIONARY DIET.
The gray wolf is ancestor to all dogs. And while years of breeding has produced hundreds of ‘different looking wolves’, the internal workings of modern dogs and their wolf cousins remain unchanged, so it’s no surprise their dietary needs remain the same too.
Our award-winning Biologically Appropriate™ philosophy is simple: mirror the quantity, freshness and variety of meats and fish that dogs are evolved to eat, while limiting the carbohydrates and synthetic ingredients that don’t belong in a dog’s natural diet.
RICH IN FISH (50%) AND PROTEIN (29%)
Your dog is biologically adapted for a diet rich in meat. That’s why we loaded ACANA Wild Coast Dog Food with 50% wild and sustainably caught fish, including Pacific herring, Arrowtooth flounder and Pacific hake, all deemed fit for human consumption.
Entirely free of the pea or potato protein concentrates common in today’s conventional dog foods, ACANA derives its rich protein (29%) content from premium fish ingredients (not plants), supporting lean muscle mass and nourishing your dog according to his evolutionary needs.
Compare to conventional dog foods which are typically low in protein and meat (and high in carbohydrates) and use ingredients that aren’t deemed fit for human consumption.
HIGH FRESH FISH INCLUSIONS (1/3)
We use fresh fish in their most natural and nourishing form. That’s why 1/3 of the fish in ACANA Wild Coast is authentically fresh and loaded with goodness and taste, and 2/3 are dried or oils to provide a concentrated, natural source of protein, supplying essential nutrients and providing the natural flavours and goodness dogs instinctively crave.
Our ingredients are from fish deemed fit for human consumption — a rarity among today’s pet food makers.
Compare to conventional dog foods which seldom contain authentically fresh fish or meats.
AN ABUNDANT VARIETY OF FISH (3)
In nature, dogs benefit from an assortment of meats and fish. That’s why ACANA Wild Coast features wild and sustainably caught fish off Vancouver Island – whole Pacific herring, Arrowtooth flounder and Pacific hake – and provides a nourishing diversity of proteins and fats to promote peak health.
Compare to conventional dog foods which feature one or two meats and have long lists of synthetic additives
WHOLEPREY™ MEAT RATIOS
In her infinite wisdom, Mother Nature matched the nutrients in whole prey animals to perfectly meet your dog’s needs. Meat provides protein and fat; organs supply vitamins and minerals; bones and cartilage provide calcium and phosphorus.
Richly nourishing whole fish provides a concentrated source of nutrients naturally, dramatically reducing the need to add synthetic vitamins or supplement to our foods.
Compare to conventional dog foods which often don’t incorporate WholePrey™ ratios of meat, organs and cartilage
Your dog’s natural diet contains very few carbohydrates, which are recognized as a leading cause of obesity and diabetes. That’s why ACANA Wild Coast replaces fast carbohydrates such as corn, rice, tapioca and potato with steel-cut oats, a healthy, low-glycaemic grain. Steel-cut oats gradually enter the blood stream, avoiding spikes in blood sugar and decreasing fat storage.
Compare to conventional dog foods which often exceed 50% carbohydrates, and feature high-glycaemic ingredients.
