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 vitamin is an organic compound and is a vital nutrient in limited amounts for many animals. These organic chemical compounds cannot be synthesised by the body in sufficient quantities and must be obtained from the diet. \\\\
Vitamins are classified as either water-soluble or fat-soluble. There are four fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, and K) and nine water-soluble vitamins (8 B vitamins and vitamin C).
Water-soluble vitamins dissolve easily in water and are readily excreted from the body and urinary output is often a strong predictor of vitamin consumption. Because they are not as readily stored, more consistent intake is important.
Fat-soluble vitamins are absorbed through the intestinal tract with the help of lipids (fats) in the diet. These vitamins tend to accumulate in the fat stores of the body which can lead to the development of hypervitaminosis and subsequent toxicities.Vitamins are provided in various ingredients and they can also be included in pure form.
As naturally fragile substances, sensitive to light, heat and oxidation, vitamins need to be protected during the cooking process.
