Westward<sup>™</sup> - Beef Meal & Potato Formula Dog Food

Premium Quality

After a long day’s graze, cattle head westward to journey home at sundown. Their herd will be free to graze with each coming day, in search of greener pastures. Your dog instinctually craves rich animal protein, which is why we included premium quality beef meal in this unique recipe. Hearty red meat protein combined with wholesome vegetables and fruits and essential vitamins and chelated minerals make Meridian™ Westward™ Beef Meal and Potato Formula a complete and balanced diet for your dog, promoting optimal overall health.


No Nonsense

Guaranteed levels of antioxidant nutrients such as Vitamin E and Vitamin C, blended with nutrient-rich vegetables and fruits, help support a healthy immune system. Fibers from potatoes, peas, chickpeas, apples, blueberries, cranberries, carrots and spinach, along with our highly controlled cooking process, support excellent digestion and nutrient absorption. This unique recipe is scientifically formulated without the use of by-products, using only the best ingredients, to give your dog a no-nonsense meal every time.


The Meal Deal

Real beef meal is the primary ingredient in our Meridian™ Westward™ formula. Beef meal provides more meat protein and roughly 4-5 times the amount of nutrients as the same amount of beef. The reason for this is that beef is approximately 70% water, whereas, dried beef meal is only about 5% water. 100 lbs. of beef meal provides 50 lbs. of high-quality balanced protein, while 100 lbs. of beef provides only 10-15 lbs. of protein.
