Acana Heritage Large Breed Adult is for adult dogs over 25kg. It is loaded with free-run chicken, wild-caught flounder and nest-laid eggs in WholePrey™ ratios that nourish naturally, without long lists of synthetic additives.
Your dog is biologically adapted for a diet rich in meat. That’s why we loaded ACANA Adult Large Breed with 60% meat, including cage-free chicken, wild-caught flounder and whole nest-laid eggs sourced from regional farms deemed fit for human consumption. Compare to conventional dog foods which often contain very little meat, and seldom from the human consumption chain.
Fresh meats are in their most natural and nourishing form. That’s why 1/3 of the poultry, fish and eggs in ACANA are authentically fresh and loaded with goodness and taste, and other 2/3 are dried to provide a strong and natural source of meat protein. All animals deemed fit for human consumption. — a rarity among today’s pet food makers. Compare to conventional dog foods which seldom contain authentically fresh meats.
In nature, dogs benefit from an assortment of prey animals. That’s why ACANA features a diversity of free-run chicken, whole eggs and whole fish, all in richly nourishing WholePrey™ ratios of meat, organs and cartilage that mimic the natural diet, eliminating the long lists of synthetic additives in conventional dog foods. Compare to conventional dog foods which feature one or two meats, seldom in WholePrey™ ratios, and feature long lists of synthetic additives.
Entirely free of the pea or potato protein concentrates common in today’s conventional dog foods, ACANA derives its rich protein content from premium animal ingredients (not plants), supporting lean muscle mass and nourishing your dog according to his evolutionary needs. Compare to conventional dog foods which are either typically low in protein (and high in carbohydrate) or use inappropriate plant protein concentrates to elevate their protein claims.
Your dog’s natural diet contains very few carbohydrates, which are recognized as a leading cause of obesity and diabetes. That’s why ACANA limits carbohydrates and replaces fast carbohydrates (such as rice, potato and tapioca) with low-glycemic fruits and vegetables. Compare to conventional dog foods which often exceed 50% carbohydrates, and feature high-glycemic ingredients such as potato, tapioca and rice.
