ANGUS Beef & Pumpkin FORMULA
MEAT-BASED FOODS THAT MIRROR YOUR DOG’S EVOLUTIONARY DIET.
The gray wolf is ancestor to all domestic dogs. While years of breeding have produced hundreds of “different-looking wolves,” the internal workings of modern dogs and their wolf cousins remain unchanged, so it’s no surprise that their dietary needs remain the same too.
Our award-winning Biologically Appropriate philosophy is simple: mirror the quantity, freshness and variety of meats that dogs are evolved to eat, while limiting the long lists of synthetic ingredients that don’t belong in your dog’s natural diet.
Your dog is biologically adapted for a diet rich in meat. Equipped with sharp teeth, a single-hinge jaw, and a short digestive tract, domestic dogs are anatomically designed to metabolize protein and fat from meat. That’s why we loaded ACANA Beef & Pumpkin with 60 percent beef, including fresh Muscovy beef from nearby farms – and all sourced from federally inspected facilities.
Half of the beef in ACANA Beef & Pumpkin is delivered fresh and loaded with goodness and taste. Fresh means never frozen, so refrigeration is the only way we preserve our fresh meats. The other half is dried to provide a strong and natural source of beef protein.
In nature, your dog’s diet would include a wide assortment of whole prey animals that provide all the essential amino acids, vitamins and minerals needed for peak health. That’s why ACANA Beef & Pumpkin features richly nourishing WholePrey ratios of beef, organs and cartilage to mimic your dog’s natural diet, providing essential nutrients. This eliminates the need for long lists of synthetic additives.
Entirely free of the pea or potato protein concentrates common in today’s limited ingredient foods, ACANA Beef & Pumpkin derives its rich protein content from premium beef ingredients (not plants), that support lean muscle mass and a healthy body weight, as well as nourish your dog according to his evolutionary needs.
Your dog’s natural diet contains almost no carbohydrate at all. That’s why ACANA features fruits and vegetables in limited quantities—meaning no extra non-essential carbohydrate to be stored as body fat.
This helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels, reduces the potential for fat storage, and promotes overall good health.
