Acana Wild Mackerel Singles Formula Dry Dog Food
Loaded with 50% wild Atlantic mackerel to nourish your dog according to his evolutionary needs, ACANA Wild Mackerel contains one single, easily digestible animal protein.
Wild and sustainably caught from New England waters, our richly nourishing Atlantic mackerel arrives fresh and whole, including fish, organs and cartilage to nourish your dog completely and naturally. Generous infusions of freeze-dried liver make ACANA a perfect choice for fussy dogs.
Prepared in ACANA's Kentucky DogStar® kitchens from America’s best and freshest ingredients, ACANA Wild Mackerel is guaranteed to keep your dog healthy, happy and strong.
Rich In Fish (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 Wild Mackerel with 50% mackerel, sourced from New England waters. All their fish is deemed fit for human consumption before arriving at their Kentucky kitchens.
High Fresh Fish Inclusion (1/2)
Half of the mackerel in ACANA Wild Mackerel is authentically fresh or raw so it’s loaded with goodness and taste. Fresh means never frozen, so refrigeration is the only way ACANA preserves their fresh meats, while our raw meats 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.
Whole Prey Fish
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 Wild Mackerel features fresh whole mackerel, including richly nourishing fish, organs and cartilage to mimic your dog’s natural diet, and provide essential nutrients. This eliminates the need for long lists of synthetic additives, so ACANA only adds zinc and copper.
Rich In Fish Protein (27%)
Entirely free of pea or potato protein concentrates common in today’s dog foods, ACANA Wild Mackerel derives its rich protein content from premium fish ingredients (not plants), to 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 Wild Mackerel 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.
