ONLY 5 SUPPLEMENTS
Unlike conventional cat foods, ACANA contains whole fish inclusions, which offer essential nutrients naturally, eliminating the need for long lists of additives and supplements.
BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE ™
FOOD BASED ON FISH AND MEAT THAT ASSEMBLE THE EVOLUTIONARY DIET OF YOUR CAT.
The western wild cat is the ancestor of all domestic cats and while years of reproduction have generated hundreds of 'cats of different appearance', the internal organism of wild cats and domestic cats remain unchanged, so it is no surprise that your nutritional requirements remain the same.
Our multi-award-winning and Biologically AppropriateTM philosophy is simple: to match the quality, freshness and variety of meats that cats eat according to their evolution, limiting carbohydrates and synthetic ingredients that do not belong to the natural diet of cats.
RICH IN FISH (75%) AND PROTEIN (37%)
Your cat is a carnivore and is biologically adapted for a diet rich in meat. Equipped with sharp teeth, a single movable jaw and a short digestive tract, domestic cats are anatomically designed to separate protein and fat from meat.
Which is why we have prepared ACANA Pacifica with 75% Pacific sardine from wild catch, flounder, hake and rockfish - all caught on Vancouver Island and fit for human consumption before inclusion in our food.
Entirely free of the pea or potato protein concentrates, ACANA derives its rich protein content from fish ingredients (not plants), supporting lean muscle mass and nourishing your cat completely.
GREAT INCLUSIONS OF FRESH FISH (1/2)
We use fresh fish in its most natural and nutritious form. That is why the ½ of the fish in ACANA Pacifica is fresh, and the other ½ is dry or with oils, which provides a concentrated and nutritious source of fish protein.
AN ABUNDANT VARIETY
Consider the variety in the natural diet: eggs today, a duck or goose tomorrow, fresh fish the next. Mother nature provides a diversity of proteins and essential fats to maintain the optimal health of cats.
Which is why ACANA Pacifica presents a variety of fish - herring, sardines, plaice, hake and wild caught rockfish - all whole and highly nutritious in WholePrey TM proportions of fish, organs and cartilage that resemble the natural diet.
WHOLEPREY ™ PROPORTIONS
In its infinite wisdom, mother nature harmonized the nutrients in the whole fish to perfectly fill the needs of your cat. Meat provides protein and fat, organs provide vitamins and minerals, and bones provide calcium and phosphorus.
ACANA offers WholePrey ™ proportions of fish, organs and cartilage that resemble nature and provide nutrients in a biodegradable way - drastically reducing the need to add synthetic vitamins or supplements in our foods.
LIMITED CARBOHYDRATES (23%)
Your cat has no nutritional need for carbohydrates, and his natural diet contains very few, if any. Carbohydrates are widely recognized as the leading cause of obesity and diabetes - even so, conventional cat foods often exceed 50% of carbohydrates in their content.
Which is why ACANA limits total carbohydrate content and replaces fast-digesting carbohydrates such as rice, tapioca and potatoes with healthy low glycemic index fruits and vegetables such as zucchini and green vegetables; Since these enter the bloodstream slowly, thus avoiding alterations in blood sugar levels and decrease the possibility of fat accumulation.
