Elanco Animal Health have acquired Arantana, a pet company that focuses on developing innovative therapeutics for dogs and cats.
The acquisition allows Elanco to further develop Arantana’s first of its kind canine product Galliprant® (designed for dogs with osteoarthritis) and which Elanco have had exclusive right to since 2016. It also adds two additional products to their portfolio; Entyce® (FDA Approved therapeutic to stimulate dogs appetites) and Nocita® (local anaesthetic that gives 72 hours post-operative pain relief for dogs and cats). Arantana’s pipeline in research and development will also contribute to Elanco’s efforts to sustain novel and innovative companion therapeutics.
