ACANA benefits cats of every variety. Just like you, your cat is unique and feeding requirements will vary with environment, age, and activity. The table below provides a starting point, to be adjusted as needed. We recommend feeding twice daily and always keeping fresh water available.

MEAT-BASED FOODS THAT MIRROR YOUR CAT’S EVOLUTIONARY DIET.
The Near Eastern wildcat is the ancestor and closest relative of all domestic cats. While years of breeding have produced hundreds of ‘different-looking cats’, the internal workings of wild and domestic cats remain unchanged, so it’s no surprise that their dietary needs remain the same too.
Our award-winning Biologically Appropriate philosophy is simple: mirror the quantity, freshness, and variety of fish and meat that cats have evolved to eat, while limiting synthetic ingredients that don’t belong in a cat’s natural diet.
Your cat is a carnivore and biologically adapted for a diet rich in fish and meat. Equipped with sharp teeth, a single-hinge jaw, and a short digestive tract, domestic cats are anatomically designed to break down protein and fat from fish and meat.
That’s why we loaded ACANA Pacifica with 75% wild-caught Pacific pilchard, flounder, silver hake, and rockfish, all fished off Vancouver Island.
ACANA derives its rich protein content from fish ingredients, not plants, supporting lean muscle mass and nourishing your cat completely.
We use fresh fish in its most natural and nourishing form. That’s why 1/2 of the fish in ACANA Pacifica are fresh, and 1/2 are dried or oils to provide a concentrated source of nourishing fish protein.
Consider the variety in the natural diet: fish today, a duck or goose tomorrow, eggs the next. Mother Nature provides a diversity of proteins and fats essential to the peak health of cats.
That’s why ACANA Pacifica features a diversity of fish: wild-caught herring, pilchard, flounder, silver hake, and rockfish, all whole and in richly nourishing WholePrey ratios of fish, organs, and cartilage or bone that mimic the natural diet.
Mother Nature matched the nutrients in whole fish to perfectly meet your dog’s needs. Whole fish provides protein and fat; organs supply vitamins and minerals; and cartilage and bone provide calcium and phosphorus.
ACANA features WholePrey ratios of fish, organs, and cartilage or bone that deliver nutrients in highly bioavailable forms, dramatically reducing the need to add synthetic vitamins or supplements to our foods.
Your cat has no nutritional requirement for carbohydrates and his natural diet contains very few, if any. Carbohydrates are widely recognized as a leading cause of obesity and diabetes – yet conventional cat foods often exceed 50% carbohydrate content.
That’s why ACANA limits total carbohydrate content and replaces fast digesting carbohydrates like rice, tapioca and potato with healthy, farm-fresh vegetables and fruit, such as squash and apple. These enter the blood stream slowly, avoiding spikes in blood sugar and decreasing the potential for fat storage.
