About ROYAL CANIN®

The animal comes first

At ROYAL CANIN®, everything we do is for the dog and the cat.

A dog is not a man, a cat is not a small dog, a small dog is not just a big dog in a smaller package. To respect each animal and its specific characteristics, knowledge is the key. To feed the animal well, knowledge is the key.

Respecting the animal nature of dogs and cats

For ROYAL CANIN®, knowledge means respecting dogs and cats and rejecting all forms of anthropomorphism. ROYAL CANIN® drives its observation, research and innovation with total respect for this ethic. The more we know about the dog and cat, the more we understand their needs and the better we can serve those needs.

Science and observation: The two pillars of knowledge

Science feeds our knowledge on a daily basis. Cross-disciplinary expertise, scientific curiosity, rigorous methodology and a taste for innovation define our Research and Development team.

Beyond this strictly scientific approach, ROYAL CANIN® also gives pride of place to observation to further our knowledge on dogs and cats. We have permanent working relationships with the world of dog and cat professionals, particularly breeders, and we also enjoy a privileged opportunity for observation in our kennel and cattery.

Focus on health nutrition

ROYAL CANIN® diets provide precise nutritional solutions to your pet’s needs. Each of our products is based on our extensive knowledge of cats and dogs, gained through years of studies at our own centre, partnerships with leading veterinary schools and universities, and continued input from veterinarians and breeders worldwide. We’re constantly expanding and improving on this knowledge in order to keep providing your pet with food that meets their exact dietary requirements.

Where we lead, others follow

One food doesn’t suit all. We take into account age, activity, breed, size and lifestyle when creating our diets, and we were the first to do so. In 1980 we were the first to introduce specific diets for large breed puppies, in 1997 we were the first to meet the different nutritional needs of small, medium and large breeds of dog, and in 1999 we launched the first food for a specific breed of cat, formulated for the unique dietary needs of Persians. Today, we continue to innovate, and you’ll find the latest releases from ROYAL CANIN® in our news section.

Specialised distribution

Our food is only available from vets and specialist pet retailers. This way, you can be sure that you are getting the right advice and exactly the right diet for your cat or dog.
