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.
Vitamin B2 contributes to the quality of the animal’s skin and coat. A deficiency produces changes to the skin around the eyes and the abdomen.
After being confused with vitamin B1, riboflavin was finally discovered in 1937, but it was only in the eighties that a number of diseases were identified with very general symptoms, caused by a deficiency of this vitamin. Riboflavin is water-soluble and heat stable, but sensitive to light.
Riboflavin is the precursor to a group of enzymatic cofactors called flavins. Flavins are used as coenzymes in about 50 enzymes in mammals that are involved in many biochemical reactions including the production of energy from fat, the catabolism of amino acids and the functioning of the cell’s energy plants.
Riboflavin tends not to be stored in the body and thus it is critical to supply this vitamin through the diet. Rich dietary sources include dairy products, organ meats (liver, heart kidney), muscle meats, eggs, green plants and yeast.
