Acana | Meadowland Grain-Free Dry Cat Food
ACANA’s Meadowland Cat and Kitten recipe is a grain-free, region-inspired formula that your cat will thrive on. An excellent choice for cats of all breed and ages, this biologically appropriate recipe contains an unmatched variety of fresh regional ingredients delivered daily from local Kentucky farms. Packed with over 75% meat, the Meadowland recipe features free-fun Cobb chicken, nest-laid eggs, Tom turkey, Blue catfish and Rainbow trout in wholeprey ratios in order to mimic the diet mother nature intended.
Raised and fished on local Kentucky farms by farmers ACANA knows and trusts, all ingredients are deemed fit for human consumption before arriving fresh and whole to ACANA’s Kentucky DogStar kitchens. By utilizing the whole animal or fish (including organs, cartilage and giblets) your cat absorbs 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.
Fresh whole Rainbow trout are brought in daily from Idaho’s Snake River aquifers and are naturally rich in essential fatty acids like Omega-3, DHA and EPA to promote 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 chicken liver and you’ve got a recipe loved by even the fussiest eaters.

With a state-of-the-art brand-new kitchen in Kentucky, all ACANA foods are sourced and made right here in the USA by trusted farmers. With human grade ingredients that typically arrive at the kitchens within 48 hours of harvesting, fresh is the entire basis of ACANA’s brand.
