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.
Very long-chain omega 3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) are especially known for their anti-inflammatory role. There is a high concentration of EPA and DHA in the retina: supplementation during gestation and the first weeks of life increases the animal’s visual acuity.
Enriching the food with EPA and DHA has many other benefits however:
DHA is sometimes known as cervonic acid, because the brain is the organ with the highest concentration. Wild carnivores, especially felines, consume DHA when they eat the brains of their prey.
Present in maternal milks, EPA and DHA are indispensable to the development of the embryo’s and the fetus’s brain and retinas. The higher the DHAconcentration in the maternal milk, the greater the maturity of the developing animal’s nervous system.
Very long-chain omega 3 fatty acids are concentrated in the oils of deep sea fish (such as salmon, mackerel, halibut, herring and capelin). EPA and DHA are present in phytoplankton and single cell algae. EPA and DHA concentrate in the adipose tissue of fish as they pass through the food chain.
