WITH FREE-RUN CHICKEN, TURKEY & NEST-LAID EGGS
By nature, all dogs are evolved as carnivores, biologically adapted for a diet rich and varied in fresh meats with smaller amounts of fruits, vegetables and grasses.
That’s why we loaded ACANA Free-Run Poultry with free-run Cobb chicken, Tom turkey and whole nest-laid eggs – delivered fresh from local Kentucky farms in WholePrey™ ratios to nourish your dog completely.
Prepared in our Kentucky DogStar® kitchens from America’s best and freshest ingredients, this unique and Biologically Appropriate™ ACANA food is a delicious way to keep your dog healthy, happy, and strong.

IT'S ALL ABOUT THE MEAT
MOTHER NATURE MATCHED THE NUTRIENTS IN WHOLE FOWL, FISH AND GAME TO PERFECTLY MEET THE NEEDS OF YOUR DOG.
Modern dogs are built like their ancestors and we believe they should eat like them. How do you know if your dog’s food is Biologically Appropriate™? It’s simple, just answer our Biologically Appropriate™ ‘three meat questions’.
Entirely free of plant protein concentrates, ACANA Free-Run Poultry is loaded with 60% poultry — up to twice as much as most pet specialty dog foods.
1/2 of the poultry in ACANA is FRESH, supplying essential nutrients in their most nourishing form, and 1/2 is dried to provide a strong and natural source of protein.
ACANA features three fresh meats in WholePrey™ ratios that include meat, organs and cartilage to supply nutrients naturally and completely.
- Free-run Cobb chicken – meat, giblets and cartilage, fresh from local farms.
- Free-run Tom turkey – meat, giblets and cartilage, fresh from local Kentucky farms.
- Nest-laid eggs – whole and fresh from local Kentucky farms.
ZINC | OUR ONE AND ONLY SUPPLEMENT
In Mother Nature’s kitchen, there are no synthetic supplements, and dogs and wolves derive all of their nutritional needs by consuming whole prey animals; muscle meat provides protein; liver, kidney and tripe supply vitamins and minerals; bones and cartilage deliver calcium and phosphorus.
ACANA mirrors the natural diet, applying our Meat Math and incorporating meat, organs and cartilage in ratios that deliver nutrients naturally. Our foods provide a concentrated and natural source of virtually every nutrient your dog needs to thrive, which is why virtually all of the nutrients in ACANA are naturally present and are not synthetic

DESIGNED FOR CARNIVORES
They might look different, but your dog shares his eating anatomy with the gray wolf – which means he’s evolved as a carnivore and adapted for a diet rich in meat, protein and fat.
Based on this biological fact, and to produce a nutritional analysis that mirrors the diet Mother Nature would provide for your dog, ACANA Free-Run Poultry is rich in nourishing proteins and fats, while limiting unwanted carbohydrates and synthetics.
