Just like you, your cat or kitten is a unique individual and her feeding requirements will vary with breed, environment, age and activity. Use this chart as a starting point, and monitor your cat or kitten’s weight, adjusting amounts as needed. Feed her twice daily and always keeping fresh, clean water available.

Post weaning feed kittens 1/4 cup per lb of body weight. At 20 weeks, decrease feeding to 1/8 cup per lb of body weight. Start adult feeding guide by 52 weeks. During gestation increase feeding amount by 25 percent. During lactation free feed.

Transition Instructions

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.

  • Great kitty food!

    By on

    I've been trying to get my cats, a 6 and 8 year old, to ween away from dry food but its impossible so I've been looking for good quality dry food for a while. When first trying out this brand, I mixed it in with their old food (wellness core grain free) and the kitties picked out the kibble and ignored the old stuff. They love it! The extra cost is worth their meowing excitement when I put out a fresh scoop in the mornings and also knowing they're eating good quality food.

  • My cats love this, so I love this.

    We first tried Acana's Appalachian Ranch. Loved it. Not sure why it's been out of stock since, so we bought this one. Love it too. High quality ingredients - no mystery meat, no ash (yes, check your pet's food, some have ash in the analysis). 11/10 will buy again!

  • Kitties love it

    By on

    Worth every penny because my cats eat less of this than other brands. It is dense with no fillers and they love it. They poop less too! I prefer the Grasslands formula but you didn't carry the 12 lb. bag.

  • Wanted so much to like this

    By on

    With all the high quality ingredients, I wanted to really like this food..but my Dora wouldn't touch this...i kept looking at the food found no problem...exp. date was more than a year away..but she would smell it and walk away. I switched to this from another brand that changed formulas and Dora wouldn't eat the new formula...i don't understand why companies that have a good product wanna change it.....still searching for a good quality food!!!!.

  • My cats switched to this without transition.

    By on

    As an experiment, instead of mixing with their old food I just put a bowl of this next to their old to see what they would do, and all three went for it, ignoring their old food completely. Obviously the taste and shape were instantly appealing to them, and I like the ingredients list on this brand better than on most other dry cat foods.

  • company mistake

    By on

    my cats love this dry food, they get it as a treat, because they eat only wet, if I had to feed them only dry I certainly would have chosen this brand, unfortunately for me and Chewy, they have parted ways. But is still 5 star.

    This food is highly rated and is probably great but my kitties who used to love all food won't eat it.

  • Little black panther loves his Acana dry food

    By on

    My 1 year old kitty loves this dry food. I switched him to this from Wellness CORE grain free and he seems to like it better when I did the side by side test with both. Granted, the Wellness was the last of the bag but it was the food he was used to and he still chose the Acana! I loved that the ingredients were good quality whole animal ingredients and that the company actually manufactures the food in addition to distributing it (at least at time of my original purchase/research early this year) and I also felt good that a lot of the ingredients were whole food and not some chemical lab-derived vitamin coating.
