ROYAL CANIN® Science Speaks



If pets could talk, they would tell us they are not people – that their likes and needs are not the same as ours. Yet, somehow over the years, our personal preferences have outweighed what might be best for them.

That’s why, at ROYAL CANIN®, we’ve dedicated our lives to deeply understanding pets’ individual habits, health, and nutritional needs through scientific inquiries and insights from veterinarians, breeders, and other pet experts around the world. It’s why we offer one of the largest, most precisely made lines of pet nutrition, with more than 200 different recipes specifically tailored for age, breed, size, life stage, lifestyle, and health condition.


Our ROYAL CANIN® Cat Timeline chronicles the amazing development and life of a cat – from birth as a babycat to a fully-fledged adult and beyond.


Each growth stage is outlined with a commentary that describes important life events and how a cat’s nutritional needs change with different levels of maturity.

Follow our timeline now and find out the kind of nutrition and diet your cat requires for their age. ROYAL CANIN® has a whole range of different growth stage formulas to help your cat maintain optimum health in dietary nutrition.
