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.
Besides its overall effect on the body, this trace element is crucial for collagen and keratin synthesis. It has healing qualities and promotes a healthy coat. Zinc deficiencies most often occur in foods of poor quality, rich in bran and minerals, which prevent the normal absorption of zinc from the gut.
Zinc is a minor mineral, a transition element, qualified in nutrition as a trace element due to its low quantitative importance, although it is vital for the body. Nordic breeds of dog sometimes have problems assimilating zinc.
Zinc is the co-enzyme in a great many metabolic systems. It is essential to the transport of vitamin A in the blood and plays an important role in reproduction. It is also a fundamental element for the integrity of the skin and so also the quality of the hair. Furthermore, zinc helps the elimination of lactates produced during short, intense muscle effort.
The concentration of Zinc in plants varies depending on soil concentrations. Plants that contain the most Zinc include wheat, seeds (sesame, poppy), alfalfa, celery and mustard. Zinc is also found in beans, nuts, wholegrains, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and blackcurrant.
