Prepared in Acana's Kentucky DogStar® kitchens from America’s best and freshest ingredients, ACANA Pork & Squash is guaranteed to keep your dog healthy, happy and strong.
Rich In Meat (50%)
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 ACANA loaded ACANA Pork & Squash with 50% Yorkshire pork, sourced from regional farms and deemed fit for human consumption
High Fresh Meat Inclusion (1/2)
Half of the pork in ACANA Pork & Squash is authentically fresh and loaded with goodness and taste. Fresh means never frozen, so refrigeration is the only way we preserve our fresh meats. The other 1/2 is dried or oils to provide a strong and natural source of meat protein and fat.
Whole Prey Pork
In nature, dogs benefit from consuming the entire prey animal that provides all the essential amino acids, vitamins and minerals needed for peak health. That’s why ACANA Pork & Squash features a richly nourishing WholePrey™ ratios of meat, organs and cartilage to mimic the natural diet and provide essential nutrients. This eliminates the need for long lists of synthetic additives, so we only add zinc.
Rich In Meat Protein (27%)
Entirely free of pea or potato protein concentrates common in today’s dog foods, ACANA Pork & Squash derives its rich protein content from premium animal ingredients (not plants) that support lean muscle mass and a healthy body weight, as well as nourish your dog according to his evolutionary needs.
Carbohydrate Limited (30%)
Your dog’s natural diet contains very few carbohydrates, which are recognized as a leading cause of obesity and diabetes. That’s why ACANA Pork & Squash limits carbohydrates and replaces fast carbohydrates (such as rice, potato and tapioca) with low-glycemic, locally grown vegetables and fruits. This helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels, reduces the potential for fat storage, and promotes overall good health.
Compare this to conventional limited ingredient dog foods which often exceed 50% carbohydrates, and feature high-glycemic ingredients such as potato, tapioca and rice – starches that digest quickly, causing blood glucose to spike and results in increased fat storage.
