IT’S ALL ABOUT THE MEAT
MOTHER NATURE MATCHED THE NUTRIENTS IN WHOLE FOWL, FISH AND GAME TO PERFECTLY MEET THE NEEDS OF YOUR CAT. That’s why ACANA features a natural balance of meat, organs and cartilage which deliver nutrients naturally, without long lists of synthetic additives.
Modern cats are built like their ancestors and we believe they should eat like them.How do you know if your cat’s food is Biologically Appropriate™? It’s simple, just answer the three meat questions.
HOW MUCH? (75% MEAT)
Entirely free of plant protein concentrates, ACANA Wild Prairie is loaded with 75% meat — up to twice as much as most pet specialty cat foods.
HOW FRESH? (1/2 FRESH)
1/2 of the meat in ACANA Regionals is FRESH, supplying essential nutrients in their most nourishing form, and 1/2 are dried to provide a concentrated source of meat protein.
HOW MANY? (5 FRESH MEATS)
ACANA Prairie Poultry features 5 fresh meats in WholePrey™ ratios that include meat, organs and cartilage to supply nutrients naturally and completely.
Free-run chicken – meat, liver, heart, kidney and cartilage, fresh from local farms.
Free-run turkey – meat, liver, heart, kidney and cartilage, fresh from local farms.
Wild-caught walleye – whole and fresh from Canada’s pristine lakes
Nest-laid eggs – whole and fresh from local prairie farms.
Wild-caught trout – whole and fresh from Canada’s pristine lakes
In nature there are no supplements, and cats and eastern wildcats derive their nutritional needs by consuming prey animals; muscle meat provides protein; liver, kidney and tripe supply vitamins and minerals; bones and cartilage deliver calcium and phosphorus.
ONLY 3 SUPPLEMENTS | NATURAL NUTRIENTS
ACANA Wild Prairie’s rich meat and WholePrey™ inclusions supply nutrients naturally. By providing a concentrated, natural source of virtually every nutrient your cat needs to thrive, you eliminate the need for long lists of synthetic additives which is why choline, zinc and copper are our only added supplements.
Feeding & Ingredients
YOUR CAT IS SPECIAL
Just like you, your cat or kitten is a unique individual and his feeding requirements will vary with his breed, environment, age and activity.
That’s why we suggest using this chart as a starting point, and monitoring your cat or kitten’s weight and adjusting her rations as needed. We also recommend feeding her twice daily and always keeping fresh, clean water available.
When switching diets, it’s important to transition your cat or kitten as it takes time for her digestive system to adapt to the richer nutrient levels in ACANA. Over a 5-7 day period, gradually mix in ACANA, increasing the amount each day so that by day 7 you are feeding 100% ACANA.
She’ll love the change – we guarantee it!
Serve dry or lightly moistened . To help maintain freshness, we recommend sealing the bag tightly and storing it in a cool, dry location.
GESTATION: INCREASE FEEDING 25% TO 50%. LACTATION: FEED ‘FREE CHOICE’.
Unique compared to conventional foods, ACANA delivers more calories from protein and fat and fewer calories from carbohydrates, reducing the risk of obesity and promoting your cat’s peak health.

DESIGNED FOR CARNIVORES
They might look different, but your cat shares her anatomy with the eastern wildcat– which means she’s evolved as a carnivore and adapted for a diet rich in meat, protein, and fat.
Based on this biological fact, and to produce a nutritional analysis that mirrors the diet Mother Nature would provide for your cat, ACANA features richly nourishing proteins and fats, and limits unwanted carbohydrates.
