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.
A probiotic is a living organism administered orally with beneficial effects on the balance of intestinal flora that can help prevent or treat digestive problems in animals.The regular consumption of probiotics can even have a beneficial impact on health in general and immunity in particular.
More than 90% of the body’s cells are actually bacteria in the digestive tract. The colon can contain up to 10,000,000,000,000 bacteria per gram!
Probiotics are “beneficial” bacteria that are able to colonise the intestine at the expense of potentially pathogenic bacteria if they are absorbed with the food. In humans, the regular consumption of fermented milk products (like yoghurt) is based on the same principle.
A special strain of lactobacilli (Lactobacillus acidophilus)can accelerate the recovery of dogs and cats that have suffered from clinical enteritis caused by pathogenic bacteria.
Two strains of probiotics are now approved in Europe as additives in complete foods for cats and dogs : Lactobacillus acidophilus and Enterococcus faecium.
