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 mapping of the roles of antioxidants is one of the main subjects of medical research at this time. They include the fight against ageing, the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease, some cancers, nerve diseases, cataracts and problems induced by physical effort.
Antioxidants help the body fight the destructive effects of free radicals (more properly known as “oxygen- reactive species”), which are unstable substances derived from oxygen that are being produced by the body all the time. The production of free radicals is increased during inflammation, stimulation of the immune system and exposure to toxins.
Antioxidants protect the cell membranes and nucleus against free radicals, which bombard them without penetrating them.
The body has a large force to defend itself against these attacks, armed with enzyme mechanisms (superoxide dismutase, glutathione peroxidase and catalase) and endogenous and dietary antioxidant substances. The disruption of this natural defence system leads to oxidative stress.
Antioxidants (vitamin, colorant, enzyme) are found in various fruits (lemon, orange, melon, tomato, grape), cereals, green tea leaves and red wine. The most commonly used antioxidants are vitamin E, vitamin C, carotenoid pigments, taurine and polyphenols.
