One value that defines our innovation: The dog and cat comes first. For over 40 years, Royal Canin has worked with breeder partners and veterinary nutritionists to go ever further into innovation and precision to enable us to formulate nutritional solutions which perfectly meet dogs and cats’ real needs.
Puppy & Dog Care
From the time they’re born until well into their golden years, dogs’ nutritional needs are constantly changing and their food should too. That’s why we offer a full range of products designed for every dogs life stage.
Kitten & Cat Care
From the time they’re kittens until they’re mature, cats’ nutritional needs are constantly changing and their food should, too. Your cat’s health matters, and that’s why we offer a full line of nutrition designed for every life stage as well as based on thier specific breed, lifestyle or special requirements.
From the Industry
As a company that was founded by a veterinarian and that works closely with breeders, Royal Canin is committed to investing and supporting in the veterinary and breeder community.
Because of its composition, a Royal Canin Health Nutrition food provides all essential nutrients measured out with utmost precision in order to contribute every day and on a long-term basis to the well-being and health of cats and dogs, according to their age, his size, his physiological condition and his breed.
Royal Canin is a global leader in pet health nutrition. In an industry that continues to adapt to popular trends, our mission remains the same: Observing them, learning from them, respecting them and recognising their differences is quite literally our life’s work. The goal of that work is to provide every dog and cat with the nutrition that is precisely right for their individual needs – needs that vary with the pet’s breed, environment, age, weight, gender, digestion, their genetic makeup and lifestyle.
The addition of FOS to a food prevents diarrhoea caused by the proliferation of dangerous bacteria in the intestine, while providing adequate nourishment to intestinal cells to facilitate regular regeneration.
Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) are fermentable fibres. They are not digested, but are nevertheless rapidly fermented by the bacteria in the colon, resulting in the release of small-sized fatty acids (known as volatile fatty acids) that :
Through fermentation, FOS are a direct source of nourishment for the cells of the large intestine. But they particularly promote the growth of specific bacterial flora (bifidus and lactobacillus) that have well-known benefits for the digestive tract :
FOS supplementation in the food of bitches used for breeding helps increase the antibody count (IgM) in the milk, which promotes better immunity for the puppies.
FOS are synthesised by a fungus (Aspergillus nigricans) in the presence of sugar, or sucrose, which is formedby the association of a glucose molecule and a fructose molecule. The fungus secretes an enzyme that permits the addition of extra fructose molecules to form FOS.
