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 grains or gluten, ACANA Appalachian Ranch is loaded with 70% animal ingredients — more than twice as much as some pet specialty dog 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 meat. 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 a rich variety of quality ingredients that are raised or fished by people we know and trust, and delivered to our Kentucky DogStar Kitchen fresh or raw!
- Ranch-raised beef – meat, liver, tripe, kidney, and cartilage or bone, fresh from Appalachian ranches.
- Yorkshire pork – meat, liver, tripe, kidney and cartilage, fresh from Kentucky farms.
- Grass-fed lamb – meat, liver, and tripe, fresh from Kentucky farms.
- Plains bison – 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; and cartilage and bone deliver calcium and phosphorus.
ACANA mirrors the natural diet, incorporating WholePrey meat, organs, and cartilage or bone 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.
