Your dog evolved as a meat eater. The structure of his teeth, jaws and digestive system scientifically classifies him as a carnivore, evolved for a meat-based diet.
That’s why we loaded ACANA Heritage Meats with Angus beef, Yorkshire pork and Suffolk lamb — all raised on local Kentucky farms and delivered fresh, in WholePrey™ ratios of meat, liver, tripe, kidney and cartilage to nourish your dog completely.
Prepared to our Biologically Appropriate™ and Fresh Regional Ingredient standards in our Kentucky DogStar®kitchens, ACANA is a natural and 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.
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’.
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.
ACANA Heritage Meats features an unmatched variety of local ingredients that are raised or fished by people we know and trust, passed “fit for human consumption”, and then delivered to our Kentucky DogStar® kitchens fresh each day!

They might look different, but your dog shares his 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 Heritage Meats is rich in nourishing proteins and fats, while limiting unwanted carbohydrates and synthetic supplements.
