At Boréal we strive to make the best food for every dog and cat. We source every possible ingredient from Canadian farms and fisheries. Boréal Functional Indoor Cat is a high meat, low carb, grain free food; with a focus on low glycemic ingredients to help keep your cat healthy.
• We use high quality fresh, deboned chicken as the first ingredient – Chicken is a source of naturally occurring glucosamine, an amino acid which supports joints and bones. As well chicken is a protein dense meat and is easily digested.
• Functional Senior is designed to help prevent health issues in older and less active cats with support for:
• Urinary health to prevent crystals
• Hairball support to keep hairballs small
• Dental support to help prevent and remove tartar
• Organic minerals to help coat color and shedding
• Joint support with glucosamine and chondroitin
• Fat and protein levels designed for less active indoor cats and for sterilized cats.
• Boréal Functional is built around low glycemic index foods – which take longer for your cat to digest compared to foods with potato, white rice, corn or soy.
• Boréal Functional is a high meat food and is grain free and gluten free – we use no artificial colours, preservatives or flavours.
• Boréal Functional Senior and Less Active Cat is an everyday diet which can be used to help keep your adult cat at a healthy weight.
At Boréal we add a unique blend of organic minerals to all our foods to help produce a better coloured, softer coat. A recent study found in addition to better coat color, footpads became smoother and less sore leading to more activity. Ask us about Propath® Pet from Zinpro® Performance Minerals.

Our Senior diet also has added glucosamine for joint health and added omega oils for cognitive function support
“ (for cats)…positive view concerning the use of omega-3 fatty acids as dietary supplements, since they have known anti-inflammatory effects and thus may be effective in easing joint discomfort caused by osteoarthritis.”

Miscanthus fiber to help hairballs – grasses proven to be effective hairball control – as well we add Salmon Oil to help a cat expel a hairball
“In conclusion, M (Miscanthus grass ) decreased hairball size and total fecal hair mass per gram of feces, which could be an indication of increased ability of cats to eliminate hair masses through fecal excretion and reduce their regurgitation in a home setting.” 236 Effect of Miscanthus grass as a dietary method to aid hairball control in cats

Miscanthus Fiber for dental abrasion
Sodium Tripolyphosphate to reduce Tarter – that is what is in many toothpastes
“Sodium tripolyphosphate binds salivary calcium so it is unavailable to build into tartar. Zinc helps to slow down tartar build-up and has antiseptic properties, therefore, reducing bad breath.”
