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 name “Pantothenic Acid” is derived from the Greek pantos, which means “from everywhere”. Pantothenic acid, or vitamin B5, is found in small quantities in nearly all food-stuffs.
Pantothenic acid was discovered and isolated by Roger J. Williams in 1938, whilst researching yeast. In animals, pantothenic acid is required to synthesise coenzyme-A (CoA), as well as to synthesise and metabolize proteins, carbohydrates, and fats.
Pantothenic acid is used in the synthesis of coenzyme A (CoA). Coenzyme A is involved with transport carbon atoms within the cell. CoA is important in energy metabolism and is also important in the biosynthesis of many important compounds such as fatty acids, cholesterol, and acetylcholine.
Pantothenic acid participates in a wide array of key biological roles and is thus essential to all forms of life. As such, deficiencies in pantothenic acid may have numerous wide-ranging effects although deficiencies are very rare.
The most important sources of pantothenic acid are meats (particularly liver and heart), rice and wheat bran, alfalfa, peanut meal, yeast and fish.
