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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Seem to like

    By on

    So far i have only tried this one on them and they really like it. I am at the time still mixing with their IAMS. It is much easier for them to chew as I have a kitten 9 mos old and an 11 yr old senior cat.

  • Cats can't get enough of it!

    By on

    This food was recommended by my niece as a better quality than the one we were using for our 2 older cats . These two, a male and a female, were finicky eaters and have discerning palates. So imagine how grateful and elated we are that our kitties loved this food from the start. They just can't get enough of it and it seems to work very well with our beautiful pets digestion.
