Loaded With Fish

The ultimate food mimics the one Mother Nature evolved your cat or kitten to eat!

Made with a full 65% 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.

  • Canadian Salmon – whisked from Vancouver's Pacific waters and delivered fresh each day
  • Wild-caught Herring – from North Vancouver Island and delivered fresh each day
  • Wild-caught Flounder – from North Vancouver Island and delivered fresh each day
  • Passed fit for human consumption, our local ingredients are truly fresh – so they're never frozen and arrive preservative-free each day

Fresh Local Fruits & Vegetables

ACANA Pacifica is loaded with a full 35% of fruits & vegetables including Red Delicious apples and Bartlett pears from the sun-drenched Okanagan valley, and butternut squash, Burbank potatoes 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 grains such as rice and corn.

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 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 for peak conditioning.

Luxuriant Skin & Coat

We infused each morsel of ACANA Pacifica 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.

Enhanced Metabolism

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.

Delivered Fresh Each Day

ACANA Pacifica 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!

Designed For Carnivores

Your cat or kitten is evolved as a carnivore, which means she’s adapted 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 dog, ACANA is loaded with nourishing meat proteins and fats, while limiting unwanted carbohydrates and high-glycemic grains.

Your Cat Is Special

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!
