Natural dog food from Acana
Dogs are carnivores; they need meat and fish and only small quantities of vegetables, fruits and herbs. Acana produces animal food according to the Biologically Appropriate principle. This dog food consists mainly of fresh ingredients that are also approved for human consumption. In addition, Acana food does not contain any added colourings, aromas or flavourings. These ingredients are delivered fresh daily and processed by the producer. You could say that Acana is trying to imitate the natural diet of dogs.
The ingredients of Acana dog food are different from other pet foods. They do not buy any bulk raw materials or ingredients as with other types of dog food. Acana only acquires ingredients that come from a certain region in a sustainable way and are also suitable for human consumption.
The Biologically Appropriate concept entails that the ingredients used in Acana dog food is made of fresh ingredients. Moreover, these ingredients are processed in such a way that they mirror what dogs are naturally evolved to eat. The entire Acana range does not contain any artificial colourings, flavourings or other additives and are free of GMO's (Genetically Modified Organisms) and antibiotics.
