New Acana Formulas for Cats
Acana's 5 Natural Principles
Although the natural diet of cats and dogs
contains a VARIETY of meat proteins from small mammals, eggs, birds and fish,
most commercial pet foods contain only one animal ingredient - typically only
chicken or lamb.
Providing a wider variety of animal ingredients better matches the natural diet, providing our companion dogs and cats with a diversity of essential proteins and fats to match the natural diet.
That’s why every ACANA diet is made with a minimum of THREE FRESH MEATS—including free-run chicken, whole eggs and a variety of wild-caught fish—world-class ingredients that arrive at our factory FRESH EACH DAY.
From Dachshunds to Great Danes, all breeds of dog carry the same DNA patterns and share a single evolutionary origin—the gray wolf.
And just like their wild cousins, dogs and cats are carnivores—equipped with sharp teeth, a short digestive tract and a body that’s highly efficient at metabolizing animal proteins and fats – not carbohydrates.
By matching the ratio of protein and fat to the natural diet ACANA promotes peak health and conditioning. Much higher in meat and substantially higher in protein than typical commercial pet foods, ACANA diets are bursting with quality meat ingredients that provide a variety and balance of animal proteins and fats similar to that which dogs and cats would encounter in nature.
Dogs and cats are anatomically adapted for a diet high in animal proteins and fats with very few, if any, carbohydrates
Carbohydrates are ‘empty calories’—simple sugars that provide no nutritional value to dogs and cats other than their limited and controversial energy potential.
Once injested carbohydrates convert rapidly to glucose which causes blood sugar to elevate and fluctuate. Carbohydrates easily convert to body fat and are linked to obesity as well as other health problems including insulin resistance and type II diabetes.
And while most pet foods contain 40-60% carbohydrate, ACANA diets contain 20%-30% carbohydrate—about half of other commercial pet foods.
Instead of inappropriate high-glycemic grains such as white rice and corn, ACANA is formulated with a full 20% of fruits and vegetables from our region.
As most pet owners have experienced, when left to their own devices our companion dogs and cats instinctively seek out certain plants to help them with their health.
Bridging the gap between good nutrition and peak well-being, botanicals help eliminate toxins from the body and serve as tonics and builders to strengthen organs, glands and tissues in specific parts of the body—like strengthening the heart or aiding digestion.
