Wild Calling provides free-range culture and high quality nutritional products that are all natural and grain free.

Known for exotic product lines that include kangaroo and alligator, the currently available line from Wild Calling includes Western Plains Stampede Turkey Grain-Free, Western Plains Stampede Rabbit plus Sweet Potato, Western Plains Turkey plus Sweet Potato, Xotic Rabbit, Chicken Coop, Western Plains Beef, Country Best Pork, Shepherds Choice Lamb, Rainbow River Salmon, Mountain Lake Duck, Turkey Trot, Cabin Fever Chicken, Trot-N-Tommy Turkey, and Triple Delight.

Available through pet specialty distributors, the acquisition provides distribution in Washington, Oregon, Southern California, Illinois, and Western Canada.
