Canagan Dog & Cat Food. Throughout the ages, man and dog have evolved side by side, living and hunting together, protecting each other in a unique alliance. Canagan – from the ancient Celtic word for wolf – was created to honour this bond. All dogs are the direct descendants of grey wolves domesticated by our ancient forefathers, and their dietary needs have remained virtually unchanged to this day.
What is biologically appropriate in Canagan Dog & Cat Food?
Traditionally dog and cat foods have sacrificed nutritional value by using cheaper, less nutritionally accessible ingredients. Canagan’s nutritionists have looked carefully at the dietary needs of cats and dogs to produce a food which more closely mimics your pet’s ancestral diet with the correct ratio of meat protein and fat to carbohydrate and a much higher meat content than most.
What really sets Canagan Dog & Cat Food apart is the quality of the meat and fish that they source for their food. As dogs are carnivores they can more readily get nutrition from meat sources, so they’ve chosen meat that is wholesome, delicious with plenty of nutritional benefits.
Why go grain free?
Dogs and cats are highly adapted to eat meat. Like all carnivores, they find it more difficult to digest grains. This is highlighted because they don’t have the enzyme called amylase in their saliva, which helps to break down these starchy carbohydrates.
Canagan have eliminated all the grain from their recipe to create a food that is high in meat which matches as closely as possible their natural food.
Grains such as corn, wheat and barley have been linked with canine allergies, with symptoms ranging from upset stomach to itchy flaky coat. Even if your pet has no allergies, these grains are significantly less digestible and have limited nutritional value when compared to meat, yet, they are present in the majority of pet foods.
