ACANA Indoor Entrée Receives FDA Approval for Hairball Control

Press release: ACANA

The ACANA pet food team recently announced ACANA Indoor Entrée received FDA approval for hairball control. The FDA approval confirms ACANA Indoor Entree helps control hairball with fiber from oat groats, miscanthus grass, lentils, chickpeas and lentil fiber. This is the first FDA claim for an ACANA food, and for its parent company, Champion Petfoods.

Cats constantly lick and groom themselves, and as a result, they often ingest fur in their stomachs and digestive tracks. When too much hair accumulates, it can become too large to pass and can cause the cat to vomit the hairball, which could hurt their overall health.

“When a cat regurgitates a hairball, it can negatively impact their wellbeing and result in loss of nutrition, esophageal irritation, and other potential medical problems,” said Dr. Darcia Kostiuk, in-house senior veterinarian for ACANA Pet Food. “By increasing the fiber content, using oat groats, miscanthus grass, lentils and chickpeas, ACANA Indoor Entrée improves food digestibility and aids in the reduction of feline hairball symptoms.”

ACANA Indoor Entrée was created specifically for indoor cats. It is packed with quality animal ingredients like chicken and turkey, whole herring and rabbit. The high-quality protein helps cats build strong muscles, and the balanced Omega fatty acids support healthy skin and a shiny coat.

The food features premium ingredients that come from a curated group of farmers, ranchers and fishers. The result is a protein-rich, nutritious, and delicious cat food to help them live a healthy, happy life. It does not contain artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.

“Our team at ACANA pet foods is dedicated to helping cats thrive and receiving FDA approval for hairball control demonstrates our commitment to going above and beyond when it comes to food safety,” said Billy Frey, director of ACANA Cat at Champion Petfoods. “Pet lovers value the health and wellbeing of their feline friends, and ACANA Indoor Entrée can support regular feline hairball control.”

In stores now, ACANA Indoor Entrée packaging includes the FDA approval, noting, “Helps control hairballs with fiber from oat groats, miscanthus grass, lentils, chickpeas and lentil fiber.”
