IT’S ALL ABOUT THE MEAT cat-reg-pacifica-meatmath
MOTHER NATURE MATCHED THE NUTRIENTS IN WHOLE FISH, FOWL AND GAME TO PERFECTLY MEET THE NEEDS OF YOUR CAT. That’s why ACANA features fresh whole fish, including 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 Pacifica is loaded with 75% fish — up to twice as much as most pet specialty cat foods.
HOW FRESH? (1/2 FRESH)
1/2 of the fish in ACANA is FRESH, supplying essential nutrients in their most nourishing form, and 1/2 are dried or oils to provide a concentrated source of nourishing fish protein.
HOW MANY? (5 FRESH MEATS)
ACANA Pacifica features 5 fresh fish in WholePrey™ ratios that include fish, organs and cartilage to supply nutrients naturally and completely.

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.

They might look different, but your cat shares her anatomy with the Near Eastern wild cat– 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.

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.
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.
Metabolizable Energy is 4080 kcal/kg (490 kcal per 250ml/120g cup), with 36 % from protein, 22 % from fruits and vegetables, and 42 % from fat.
DOGS AND CATS ARE EVOLVED AS CARNIVORES AND DESPITE A MODERN LIFESTYLE, THEIR ANATOMY REMAINS UNCHANGED. That's why we formulate ACANA with the same variety of fresh meats that cats and dogs would eat in their natural environment - keeping in mind the modern lifestyle of today's companion pet often means a reduced calorie requirement.
