By nature, all cats and kittens are carnivores, adapted for a diet rich and varied in fresh meats with small amounts of fruits and grasses. That’s why ACANA WILD PRAIRIE is bursting with cage-free chicken, turkey and nest-laid eggs from local prairie farms, and wild-caught perch from our northern lakes — all DELIVERED FRESH and bursting with goodness. 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 freshest ingredients in our award-winning kitchens, ACANA WILD PRAIRIE keeps your cat or kitten healthy and strong. Read our ingredients and we think you’ll agree!
The ultimate food mimics the one Mother Nature intended your cat or kitten to eat!
Featuring a full 70% of richly nourishing chicken, turkey, eggs and fish, ACANA Wild Prairie matches your cat’s evolutionary adaptation to a meat & protein rich diet, and its variety of fresh, local meats mirrors the diversity of your cat’s natural diet.
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
In place of inappropriate cereal grains, ACANA Wild Prairie 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, Potato-free & Low Carbohydrate. Rich in protein and low in carbohydrates to match your cat’s natural diet, ACANA Wild Prairie 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 Wild Prairie 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.
We infused each morsel of ACANA Wild Prairie with marine-source Omega 3 (DHA, EPA) from wild-caught New Brunswick herring to support immunity and luxuriant skin & hair coat – your cat’s outer symbol of health and vitality.
Organic sea vegetables and botanicals including juniper berries, lavender flowers, sun-cured alfalfa and peppermint leaf enhance metabolism while nourishing and toning your cat’s digestive tract.

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.
