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 Light & Fit is rich in nourishing proteins and fats, while excluding rice, potato and tapioca and long lists of synthetic ingredients found in some dog foods.
