They might look different, but your puppy 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 puppy, ACANA Puppy & Junior is rich in nourishing protein and fat, while excluding grains and gluten, and long lists of synthetic ingredients found in some puppy foods.
