FOOD FOR CARNIVORES
Your cat is an obligate carnivore and shares her anatomy with the Near Eastern wildcat – which means her body, teeth and jaws, and short digestive tract is designed 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 Wild Atlantic is rich in nourishing proteins and oils from meat, all the while limiting unwanted carbohydrates and synthetic additives.
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 amounts 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.
