Adirondack was founded over forty years ago in Ohio. This makes them one of the oldest family-owned pet food brands in the United States.
Adirondack is known for slow-cooking their pet food. They believe that this leads to a higher starch conversion, which in turn leads to increased stamina and energy.
Adirondack Product Range
Adirondack has a moderate range of dry dog food recipes. This product range does include some of the popular niches such as puppy food, weight management food, and food for large or small breed dogs.
Adirondack does not produce wet or canned dog food or any other the other specialty varieties such as freeze-dried dog food, dehydrated dog food, or fresh dog food.
Adirondack’s range of cat food is smaller than its dog food range but is still moderately sized. It does contain some niche recipes, such as a lean recipe and a kitten recipe.
Adirondack does not produce canned or wet cat food, which is unfortunate as this is the food source that is closest to their natural diet.
The nutrition provided by Adirondack dog food is varied but is generally above-average. This includes above-average proportions of protein and fat and below-average proportions of carbohydrates.
Adirondack creates some specialized recipes that are very high in protein and fat. These are ideal for dogs who are more active but are also viable for other types of dogs if taken in moderation.
Below is an example of the nutrition provided by an Adirondack recipe.
Adirondack cat food provides similar nutrition to their dog food. This includes above-average proportions of protein and fat but varying between recipes.
Nutrition is additionally important to cats as they are obligate carnivores. This means their digestive system is suited to consuming animal and fished based ingredients and minimal plant-based material.
High-Quality Meat & Fish Ingredients
Adirondack uses a relatively small selection of high-quality meat and fish ingredients, including staples like Chicken and Turkey. These ingredients are a high-quality source of animal-based protein and fat.
Adirondack does not use any unusual or uncommon meat ingredients such as Venison, Rabbit, or Kangaroo. These are popular in “Novel Meat” or Hypoallergenic dog food. Learn more about the use of these ingredients in our article Best Hypoallergenic Dog Foods Guide.
Other Notable Ingredients
Adirondack uses a range of grain ingredients such as Brown Rice, Oat Groats, Sorghum Pearled, and Barley. These are not the most common grain ingredients used in dog food.
However, these are considered by most to be some of the most nutritious grain ingredients. This is as they contain higher levels of dietary fiber, vitamins, and minerals. In addition, they are not present to boost the overall proportion of protein in the recipe, which other grains, like Corn, are often used for.
Adirondack uses Dried Beet Pulp. Learn more about Dried Beet Pulp in our article Dried Beet Pulp In Dog Food.

Adirondack Animal Testing
At this time, we have no information on what type of testing Adirondack participates in.
We strongly believe that invasive and laboratory testing of animals is an outdated and cruel practice, and one which we hope will be eliminated.
To the best of our information, Adirondack has no previous recalls. This shows they take quality and safety seriously during their manufacturing process.
Despite this, all consumers should be vigilant of future recalls of Adirondack and any other pet food brand.
