Acana Heritage Free-Run Poultry for Dogs (Choose size to view price)
WITH FREE-RUN CHICKEN, TURKEY & NEST-LAID EGGS
By nature, all dogs are evolved as carnivores, biologically adapted for a diet rich and varied in fresh meats with smaller amounts of fruits, vegetables and grasses.
That’s why we loaded ACANA Free-Run Poultry with free-run Cobb chicken, Tom turkey and whole nest-laid eggs – delivered fresh from local Kentucky farms in WholePrey™ratios to nourish your dog completely.
Prepared in our Kentucky DogStar® kitchens from America’s best and freshest ingredients, this unique and Biologically Appropriate™ ACANA food is a delicious way to keep your dog healthy, happy, and strong.
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 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 carbohydrates and synthetic ingredients that don’t belong in your dog’s natural diet.
IT'S ALL ABOUT THE MEAT
Modern dogs are built like their ancestors and we believe they should eat like them. How do you know if your dog’s food is Biologically Appropriate™? It’s simple, just answer our Biologically Appropriate™ ‘three meat questions’.
ZINC | OUR ONE AND ONLY SUPPLEMENT
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; liver, kidney and tripe supply vitamins and minerals; bones and cartilage deliver calcium and phosphorus.
ACANA mirrors the natural diet, applying our Meat Math and incorporating meat, organs and cartilage in ratios that deliver nutrients naturally. Our foods provide a concentrated and natural source of virtually every nutrient your dog needs to thrive, which is why virtually all of the nutrients in ACANA are naturally present and are not synthetic.

DESIGNED FOR CARNIVORES
They might look different, but your dog shares his eating anatomy with the gray wolf – which means he’s evolved as a carnivore and adapted for a diet rich in meat, protein and fat.
Based on this biological fact, and to produce a nutritional analysis that mirrors the diet Mother Nature would provide for your dog, ACANA Free-Run Poultry is rich in nourishing proteins and fats, while limiting unwanted carbohydrates and synthetics.
