MOTHER NATURE MATCHED THE NUTRIENTS IN WHOLE GAME, FISH OR FOWL TO PERFECTLY MEET THE NEEDS OF YOUR CAT.
Modern cats are built like their ancestors and we believe they should eat like them too. How do you know if your cat’s food is Biologically Appropriate? Simple – just answer our ‘three meat questions’.
HOW MUCH MEAT?
Entirely free of plant protein concentrates, ACANA Appalachian Ranch is loaded with 75% meat ingredients — more than twice as much as most pet specialty cat foods. Plus, all our meat and fish are sourced from federally inspected facilities.
HOW MUCH FRESH MEAT?
Half of the meat ingredients in ACANA Appalachian Ranch are FRESH or RAW, 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 richly nourishing animal protein and fat.
HOW MANY MEATS?
ACANA Appalachian Ranch features 5 fresh meats in WholePrey ratios that include meat, organs and cartilage to supply nutrients naturally and completely.
- Angus beef – meat, liver, tripe, kidney and cartilage, fresh from Appalachian ranches.
- Yorkshire pork – meat, liver, tripe, kidney and cartilage, fresh from Kentucky farms.
- Suffolk lamb – meat, liver, tripe, fresh from Kentucky farms.
- American bison – meat, fresh from Appalachian ranches.
- Blue catfish – whole and fresh from Kentucky lakes.
In Mother Nature’s kitchen there are no synthetic supplements, and wildcats 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 WholePrey foods incorporate meats, organs and cartilage in ratios that mirror Mother Nature, delivering nutrients naturally. So you won’t find long lists of synthetic supplements — only choline, zinc and copper are added.
