Breed Health Nutrition
The inventor of Breed foods
In 2002, Royal Canin developed the first nutritional answer dedicated to the Yorkshire Terrier. Since then, over 20 breeds have their own nutritional solution.
Knowledge in the service of nutritional precision
This knowledge has allowed Royal Canin to reveal the particular sensitivities of each breed, far beyond merely its size. It has also enabled the launch of unique formulas responding to each breed’s specific needs.
A concentration of technical expertise: the kibble
Kibble shape, size and texture has been studied and adapted for each breed. For example:
- To encourage good oral hygiene for the Yorkshire Terrier, thanks to flaky textured kibble.
- A specially developed kibble shape for brachycephalic breeds (e.g. Boxer) to enable then to pick up food more easily.
- To help slow down the speed of ingestion for larger breeds such as the Labrador Retreiver.
