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.
Taurine is used to treat serious heart disease known as congestive cardiomyopathy. In cats, taurine is an essential amino acid. It is needed for vision and reproduction. It provides protection against free radicals, making it also a first-rate antioxidant in the fight against ageing.
Taurine was discovered in 1826 in the bile of cattle (Bos Taurus). It is an amino acid containing sulphur that is found in most animal tissue,and concentrates in the muscles. Contrary to traditional amino acids however, it does not have any role in protein synthesis.
Taurine enables the liver to synthesise bile salts. It also works by regulating calcium flow into and out of the cells and, as a consequence, it acts on cardiac function. It has a major antioxidant action in the cell.
Meats (e.g. the organs of fowl) are the main natural source of taurine.
