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 break down protein and fat from meat. That’s why ACANA Meadowland is brimming with 70% meat, including Cobb chicken, free-run turkey, nest-laid eggs, rainbow trout and blue catfish from regional farms and waters. All animal ingredients are deemed fit for human consumption before inclusion in our foods.
High fresh meat inclusion (1/2) - Half of the meat ingredients in ACANA Meadowland are FRESH or RAW 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, while our raw meats are flash-frozen at their peak to lock in natural goodness. The other 1/2 of meat ingredients are dried or oils to provide a strong, natural source of animal 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 Meadowland features an unmatched diversity of fresh poultry, eggs and fish, all 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 we 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. Instead, ACANA derives its rich protein content from premium animal (not plant) ingredients 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 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.
