LIMITED INGREDIENTS SHOULDN’T MEAN LESS FISH.
Modern dogs are built like their ancestors and we believe they should eat like them, too. How do you know if your dog’s food is Biologically Appropriate™? Simple. Just answer our Biologically Appropriate™ ‘three meat questions’.
Entirely free of plant protein concentrates, ACANA Wild Mackerel is loaded with 50% mackerel — up to twice as much as most limited ingredient dog foods. Plus, all our fish is deemed fit for human consumption prior to inclusion in our foods.
1/2 of the Mackerel in ACANA Wild Mackerel is FRESH or RAW, supplying essential nutrients in their most nourishing form. Fresh means never frozen, so refrigeration is the only way we preserve our fresh fish, while our raw fish are flash-frozen at the source to lock in goodness. The other half is dried or oils to provide a strong and natural source of richly nourishing fish protein and fat.
ACANA Wild Mackerel features WHOLE mackerel, including organs and cartilage to supply nutrients naturally and completely.
ACANA Wild Mackerel features an unmatched variety of local ingredients that are fished by people we know and trust, deemed “fit for human consumption”, and then delivered to our Kentucky DogStar® kitchens fresh each day!
