Your dog is a carnivore and shares his anatomy with the gray wolf, which means his body, teeth, jaws, and short digestive tract are 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 Meadowland is rich in nourishing protein and oils from meat, while excluding grains and gluten, and long lists of synthetic ingredients found in some dog foods.
