American Pet Nutrition Introduces Elevate Dog Food



American Pet Nutrition (APN) launched a new premium dog food called Elevate. Inspired by the spirit of outdoors and adventure, the new brand is available exclusively in independent pet stores across the country. To further support independent distribution channels, Elevate will not be sold online.


"We’re excited to introduce to dog owners an option that will fulfill their dogs’ natural cravings for real meat and premium flavors,” says Jim Reimann, brand manager. “We’ve made it our commitment to offer nothing but the highest quality ingredients in our recipes by loading them with superfoods and removing typical fillers that are not as nutritious for dogs.”


With real meat as the first ingredient of the four savory Elevate recipes, the premium nutrition is available in dry kibble or wet canned options. Each recipe is crafted in the USA, and influenced by the national park that shares its name.


Acadia recipe: This recipe has real deboned chicken as the leading ingredient. It also includes premium turkey and duck creating a healthy blend of protein.

Grand Teton recipe: With real lamb as the primary ingredient, the Grand Teton recipe also includes turkey as it appeals to a dog’s instinctual appetite.

Smoky Mountain recipe: This recipe is made with real pork and premium wild boar, reaching peak levels of protein.

Yosemite recipe: Real salmon is at the forefront of this recipe, prioritizing nutrition for dogs.


The recipes also include a powerful antioxidant blend containing dried seaweed, cranberries, spinach and blueberries, helping to support the immune system and healthy digestion. In addition, each recipe includes rich sources of omega-3 and 6 to promote a healthy coat and skin. All Elevate dog food is made without corn, soy, wheat, potatoes or artificial flavors and preservatives.


Elevate dog food is produced at plants that are SQF certified and all ingredient suppliers have been thoroughly vetted to ensure quality and safety. Elevate does not source anything from China.


“One of the driving forces behind the introduction of Elevate is to support independent distribution and pet retailers with a unique and innovative product that is exclusive to their stores,” said Reimann.


Independent pet stores may order Elevate from the following distributors: Phillips Pet Food & Supplies, United Pacific Pet, Sunburst Pet Supplies, Inc., Independent Pet Supply and Ziegler’s Distributor, Inc.
