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.
Several studies on Green-Lipped Mussel (GLM) extract shown a reduction in pain and an improvement in joint mobility in canine patients. GLM helps limit inflammation, preserve the integrity of the cartilage and fight against oxidative damage.
Fresh, raw mussels are traditional ingredients in the diet of the Maoris living along the coast of New Zealand. The incidence of osteoarthritis is lower among these people than those living inland, which led to a number of studies on the phenomenon and the anti-inflammatory properties of this mussel were soon proven.
The mussels harvested along the coast of New Zealand benefit from a constantly renewed supply of marine nutrients brought by the current. The mussels act as a sea-water filter, retaining the essential nutrients they require. As a result, GLM contains a large number of potentially active substances that fight arthritic inflammation: omega 3 fatty acids, chondroitin, glutamine, vitamins E and C and trace elements (zinc, copper, manganese).
GLM powder is an extract from the flesh of Perna canaliculus, or New Zealand green-lipped mussel. A great deal of care is needed to preserve the mussel’s therapeutic qualities during extraction.
