IT’S ALL ABOUT THE MEAT Modern dogs are built like their ancestors and we believe they should eat like them, too. How do you know if your dog’s food is Biologically Appropriate™? Simple. Just answer our Biologically Appropriate™ ‘three meat questions’.
HOW MUCH MEAT? Entirely free of plant protein concentrates, ACANA Appalachian Ranch is loaded with 70% meat ingredients — more than twice as much as most pet specialty dog foods. Plus, all our meat ingredients are deemed fit for human consumption prior to inclusion in our foods.
HOW MUCH FRESH MEAT? 1/2 of the meat ingredients in ACANA Appalachian Ranch are FRESH, supplying essential nutrients in their most nourishing form. Fresh means never frozen, so refrigeration is the only way we preserve our fresh meats. The other half is dried or oils to provide a strong and natural source of nourishing animal protein and fat.
HOW MANY MEATS? ACANA Appalachian Ranch features 5 fresh meats, an unmatched variety that are locally raised or fished by people we know and trust, deemed “fit for human consumption”, and then delivered to our Kentucky DogStar® kitchens fresh each day! Angus beef – meat, liver, tripe, kidney and cartilage, fresh from Appalachian ranches. Yorkshire pork – meat, liver, tripe, kidney and cartilage, fresh from Kentucky farms. Grass-fed lamb – meat, liver, tripe, fresh from Kentucky farms. American bison – meat, fresh from Appalachian ranches. Blue catfish – whole and fresh from Kentucky lakes.
ZINC | OUR ONE AND ONLY SUPPLEMENT In nature there are no supplements, and wolves derive all of their nutritional needs by consuming whole prey animals. Muscle meat provides protein; liver, kidney and tripe supply vitamins and minerals; while bones and cartilage deliver calcium and phosphorus. ACANA mirrors the natural diet, incorporating WholePrey™ meat, organs and cartilage in ratios that deliver nutrients naturally. By providing a concentrated source of the nutrients your dog needs to thrive, you eliminate the need for long lists of additives. That’s why zinc is our only added supplement.
