As a descendent of the gray wolf, dogs are biologically adapted for a diet rich in fresh meats. Acana strives to mirror the menu your dog would choose in nature, by providing a proper ratio of meat, organs and cartilage to deliver nutrients the complete and natural way. No need for lots of synthetic supplements!
Acana’s Appalachian Ranch recipe is an impressive 70% of red meat and fish ingredients. This meaty bounty of Angus beef, Yorkshire pork, grass-fed Suffolk lamb and freshwater catfish are sourced from regional Kentucky farms, along with American Bison from Indiana. All meats are ethically raised and always delivered authentically fresh or frozen raw, deemed fit for human consumption when they reach Acana’s DogStar® kitchen located in Kentucky. Vegetables, fruits and botanicals also sourced from regional farms round out the remaining 30% of this formula, plus zinc.
Acana Regional meals are inspired by the rich Appalachian ranching heritage, and celebrate 25 years of fresh, quality pet foods. We’re sure your dog will fall in love with Appalachian Ranch, and be sure to try their other Biologically Appropriate™ recipes!
