ACANA's Appalachian Ranch Cat and Kitten recipe is a grain-free, protein-packed recipe loaded with over 75% of ranch-raised red meats and freshwater catfish! Honoring the Appalachian ranching heritage, this region-inspired recipes features a biologically appropriate variety of premium ingredients including Angus beef, Yorkshire pork and grass-fed Kentucky lamb, American bison and freshwater catfish. All ingredients are raised and fished on local Kentucky ranches by farmers and fishermen ACANA knows and trusts. Staying true to your cat's evolutionary diet, ACANA's Appalachian Ranch Cat and Kitten recipe features wholeprey ratios in order to mimic the diet mother nature intend so your cat can maintain optimum weight and peak health. By using the whole animal or fish, including organs and cartilage, your cat will absorb all the necessary nutrients naturally and completely. Muscle meat provides protein; liver, kidney and tripe supply vitamins and minerals; while bones and cartilage deliver calcium and phophorus. Glucosamine and chondroitin are derived naturally from high quality meat ingredients, not synthetics. Blue catfish are brought in daily from neighboring Kentucky lakes and are naturally rich in essential fatty acids like Omega-3, DHA and EPA promoting healthy skin and shiny coats. Add in the ripest fruits and vegetables that are delivered fresh everyday from neighboring farms and top it off with generous infusions of freeze-dried liver and tripe and you've got a recipe loved by even the fussiest eaters.
