Calorie content

Acana mirrors the meat and protein concentrated diets that all cats are evolved to eat, while reducing the carbohydrates and high-glycemic grains that cause blood sugar levels to rise and fluctuate.

Compared to conventional foods, Acana delivers more calories from protein and fat and fewer calories from carbohydrates, reducing the risk of obesity and diabetes and promoting peak feline health.

Metabolic Energy is 4060 kcal/kg (500 kcal per 250ml cup) with 34% of energy from protein, 42% from fat, and 24% from fruit and vegetables.

Feeding guidelines

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.

Comparison ?

ANN-BRIDGET

I have lost all faith in cereal and derivative packed cat foods.
I very much like the look of the two Canadian dried foods ORIJEN & ACANA.
How do they compare in quality of healthy grain free ingredients and price ?

  • Veterinary Advisor

Your view is gradually becoming much more commonplace and I suspect it is going to be seen as the most appropriate one in time. Cereal has been used in cat foods for a long time now and it is so established, it is difficult to change that. Most cats do digest and utilise cereal very well and it is very cheap and convenient for the manufacturers. However some cats do react badly to cereals and maybe they would all be better without them. The evidence is not yet there, but that might change in time. Orijen cat food is often regarded as the premium product of this type, with Acana being a bit more economical. Ziwi Peak Cat Food from New Zealand is another very good product which you could look at.
