By nature, all cats and kittens are carnivores, biologically adapted for a diet rich and varied in fresh meats with small amounts of fruits, vegetables and grasses.
That’s why we loaded ACANA PACIFICA with 100% wild-caught fish, including herring, flounder and pacific hake that are caught off North Vancouver Island, packed on ice, and whisked to our kitchens fresh and cold as the waters they came from.
Grain-and-potato-free to reduce unwanted carbohydrates, ACANA instead features fruits and vegetables delivered fresh and whole from our sun-drenched orchards and black prairie soils.
Prepared from Canada’s best ingredients in our award-winning kitchens, ACANA PACIFICA keeps your cat or kitten healthy and strong. Read our ingredients and we think you’ll agree!
Loaded With Fish
The ultimate food mimics the one Mother Nature evolved your cat or kitten to eat!
Made with a full 70% of nourishing fish, ACANA Pacifica matches your cat’s evolutionary adaptation to a protein rich diet, and a variety of fresh, local fish reflects the diversity and freshness Nature intended your cat to eat.
- Pacific Hake – wild-caught from North Vancouver’s cool Pacific waters and delivered fresh each day
- Pacific Herring – wild-caught from North Vancouver’s cool Pacific waters and delivered fresh each day
- Pacific Flounder – wild-caught from North Vancouver’s cool Pacific waters and delivered fresh each day
Passed “fit for human consumption” before arriving fresh, and preservative-free each day, our fresh regional local ingredients are unmatched by any other cat food.
Fresh Local Fruits & Vegetables
ACANA Pacifica is loaded with a full 30% of fruits & vegetables including Red Delicious apples from the sun-drenched Okanagan valley, and butternut squash, pumpkin and spinach greens from the black soils of local prairie farms – all bursting with goodness to support peak health and immunity.
Grain-Free & Low Carbohydrate
Rich in protein and low in carbohydrates to match your cat’s natural diet, ACANA Pacifica is free of high glycemic carbohydrate ingredients (such as rice and potatoes) found in conventional cat foods.
Long associated with obesity and diabetes, high glycemic carbohydrates break down quickly, causing a rapid and large rise in your cat’s blood sugar.
Grain-free and low in carbohydrates, ACANA causes your cat’s blood sugar to rise less over a longer period of time so her sensitivity to insulin is beneficially increased and fat storage is decreased to achieve peak conditioning.
Luxuriant Skin & Coat
We infused each morsel of ACANA Pacifica with marine-source Omega 3 (DHA, EPA) from wild-caught Canadian fish to support immunity and luxuriant skin & hair coat – your cat’s outer symbol of health and vitality.
Organic sea vegetables and botanicals including sun-cured alfalfa and peppermint leaf enhance metabolism while nourishing and toning your cat’s digestive tract.

Based on this biological fact, and to produce a nutritional analysis that mirrors the diet Mother Nature would provide for your cat, ACANA is loaded with nourishing meat proteins and fats, while limiting unwanted carbohydrates and high-glycemic grains and starches.

Your Cat Is Special
Just like you, your cat or kitten is a unique individual and her feeding requirements will vary with 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 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.
