Your dog may not roam the wilderness like their ancestors did, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't feed them like they don't. Acana makes only foods that are rich in meat and protein variety, with wholeprey meat ratios and limited carbohydrates, replacing fast carbs with low glycemic, healthy fruits and vegetables. With a state of art brand new kitchen in Kentucky, all Acana foods are sourced and made right here in the USA by trusted farmers. With human grade ingredients that typically arrive at the kitchens within 48 hours of harvesting, fresh is the entire basis of Acana's brand. Ingredients like heritage red meats from the Appalachian ranching country, free-run poultry and eggs, wild caught fish from New England, whole fruits and vegetables like Bartlett pears and butternut squash, and locally grown botanicals from Kentucky, Acana believes the healthiest foods are made here at home in Kentucky, never outsourced. Acana nourishes your pet's instinct for real, fresh meats and high quality grain-free carbohydrates. It's everything Mother Nature intended, and nothing she did not.
Overweight dogs benefit from a diet rich in proteins to promote lean muscle mass and satisfy the appetite, yet limited in carbohydrates that contribute to body fat. Acana's Light & Fit formula is a Grain-free recipe loaded with over 60% of premium animal ingredients. This protein-packed meal includes free-run chicken, free-run turkey, wild-caught flounder and whole nest-laid eggs raised on local Kentucky farms Acana knows and trusts. All meats are deemed fit for human consumption before being delivered fresh and whole to Acana's own Kentucky DogStar® Kitchens. Staying true to your dog's evolutionary diet, Acana formulas feature WholePrey ratios in order to mimic the diet mother nature intend. By using the whole bird, including meat, giblets and cartilage, your dog will get all the necessary nutrients naturally and completely. Muscle meat provides protein; liver, kidney and tripe supply vitamins and minerals; while bones and cartilage deliver calcium and phosphorus. Glucosamine and chondroitin are derived naturally from high quality meat ingredients, not synthetics. Fresh whole eggs are brought in daily from Paducah, Kentucky and a fresh assortment of fruits and vegetables are brought in from neighboring Louisville farms to provide a tasty and natural source of vitamins, minerals and amino acids necessary to keep your dog in peak physical health. Entirely free of the pea and potato protein concentrates, Acana derives its rich protein content from premium animal ingredients (not plants) to support lean muscle mass. Unlike conventional ‘light’ foods, ACANA Light & Fit is low in carbohydrate and free of high glycemic grains. Prepared from the freshest ingredients in Champion’s award-winning kitchens, ACANA is a delicious way to keep your cherished dog healthy and strong.
