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.
Sodium is an essential nutrient predominantly involved with fluid and electrolyte balance in the body. Blood pressure and sodium concentration in the blood are controlled by the renin-angiotensin system. Excessive sodium intake has been linked to hypertension.
Sodium is a major mineral element, an alkaline metal, that nutritionists call a mineral macro element due to the large amounts needed by the body.
Sodium regulates water balance: sensation of thirst or urinary elimination. Its role is very closely linked to that of potassium. The simplest way to prevent the formation of urinary stones in cats is to encourage the animal to drink. Slightly increasing the sodium chloride content in the food encourages the consumption of water and stimulates urine output.
The sodium needed by the animal is provided through sodium chloride (kitchen salt or NaCl), of mineral or marine origin, which contains 39% sodium and 61% chloride. Increasing the NaCl content in a food by 2.5% represents a 1% increase in the sodium content.
