Our all domestic dogs today are the descendants of the gray wolf, being said so their food habits & requirements are pretty much the same as they were earlier. Hence their diet should be reached in natural ingredients & not the chemically produced synthetic ingredients.
The biologically appropriate concept is just the same, it ensures the freshness of the food while maintaining the fact that it does not contain synthetic additives, high-glycemic carbohydrates & other unwanted chemical additives.
Fresh Regional Ingredient
While they say fresh they deliver the promise by sourcing & growing the food regionally. The poultry is cage-free; Eggs are fresh nest-laid & freshly caught fish. Even the fruits & vegetables that are used are raised locally.
The best thing is that all of these ingredients are passed successfully & are fit for even the human consumption.
Arcana processes the food with their state of the art fresh food processing technology; their kitchens located in Alberta’s center are award-winning North Star kitchens. They always ensure that their Fresh ingredients are successfully meeting the AAFCO Standard.
With the passion for making one of the best dog foods; the Acana kitchen makes & markets its own food. They do not in any situation outsource or get their product made outside the company owned kitchen. As they receive their ingredients from the local company approved farmers, fishermen & ranchers, they test it after receiving for being sure that it’s as per their defined standards.
This is why their food packages always say “Made by” or “Produced By” and not “made for” or “Produced For”, they do not give anyone the license to produce their food. Their Award-winning North Star kitchen hosts some of the best chefs to produce the fresh, correct &safe home cooked meal for your dogs.
At Acana, they have studied and gone back to the origins of the food that wild dog breeds used to consume & from there the company has found the secrets to prepare the right food for the right breed.
It is a quiet lesser known fact that the food for dogs should be different for different breed & the age of the dog matters too. You cannot feed the same food for full grown Doberman to the new cute Maltese puppy. Both have different energy levels and nutrition requirements.
