Prepared in ACANA's Kentucky DogStar® kitchens from America’s best and freshest ingredients, ACANA Appalachian Ranch is guaranteed to keep your dog healthy, happy and strong.
Rich in meat (70%) - Your dog is biologically adapted for a diet rich in meat. Equipped with sharp teeth, a single hinge jaw, and a short digestive tract, domestic dogs are anatomically designed to metabolize protein and fat from meat. That’s why ACANA loaded ACANA Appalachian Ranch with 70% meat, including Angus beef, Yorkshire pork, Suffolk lamb and American bison, all sourced from regional farms. All meat ingredients are from animals deemed fit for human consumption.
High fresh meat inclusion (1/2) - Half of the meats in ACANA Appalachian Ranch are authentically fresh and delivered daily to our kitchens, so they are loaded with goodness and taste. Fresh means never frozen, so refrigeration is the only way we preserve our fresh meats. The other 1/2 of meat ingredients is dried or oils to provide a strong and natural source of meat protein and fat.
A variety of whole meats (5) - In nature, your dog’s diet would include a wide assortment of prey animals that provide all the essential amino acids, vitamins and minerals needed for peak health. ACANA Appalachian Ranch features a diversity of fresh meats in richly nourishing WholePrey™ ratios of meat, organs and cartilage to mimic your dog’s natural diet and provide essential nutrients. This eliminates the need for long lists of synthetic additives, so ACANA has only add zinc
Rich in meat protein (33%) - ACANA is entirely free of pea or potato protein concentrates, commonly substituted for meat protein by many specialty dog foods to reduce costs and increase profit. Instead, ACANA Appalachian Ranch derives its rich protein content from premium animal ingredients (not plants), that support lean muscle mass and a healthy body weight, as well as nourish your dog according to his evolutionary needs.
Carbohydrate limited (25%) - Your dog’s natural diet contains very few carbohydrates, which are recognized as a leading cause of obesity and diabetes. That’s why ACANA Appalachian Ranch limits carbohydrates and replaces fast carbohydrates (such as rice, potato and tapioca) with low-glycemic, locally grown vegetables and fruits. This helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels, reduces the potential for fat storage, and promotes overall good health.
