Read our ingredients and we think you’ll agree!
The ultimate food mimics the one Mother Nature intended your cat or kitten to eat!
Made with a full 65% of nourishing chicken, 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.
In place of inappropriate cereal grains, ACANA Wild Prairie is loaded with a full 35% of fruits & vegetables including Red Delicious apples from the sun-drenched Okanagan valley, and butternut squash, Burbank potatoes and spinach greens from local prairie farms – all bursting with goodness to support peak health and immunity.
Rich in protein and low in carbohydrates to match your cat's natural diet, ACANA Wild Prairie is free of high glycemic grains (such as rice and corn) found in conventional cat foods.
Long associated with obesity and diabetes, high glycemic grains 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.
ACANA Wild Prairie features an unmatched variety of local ingredients that are raised or fished by people we know and trust, passed fit for human consumption, and then delivered to our door fresh each day!

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.
She'll love the change – we guarantee it!
