At Royal Canin, we believe the secret to providing cats and dogs with the best nutrition lies not in any passing fad, but in well-researched scientific fact. That’s why we always use a purely scientific approach to create diets designed to cater to the specific needs of pets of all shapes, sizes, ages, lifestyles and breeds.

From the time they’re born until they’re well into their golden years, dogs’ nutritional needs are constantly changing, and we believe their food should, too. That’s why we offer a full line of products designed for dogs at every life stage. 

From the time they’re kittens until they’re mature, cats’ nutritional needs are constantly changing, and we believe 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. 

ROYAL CANIN® PROFESSIONAL products are specifically formulated to meet the needs of the breeding kennel and cattery.  Our innovative science-based solutions are the result of our 40-year collaboration and partnership with breeders across the globe.

As a company that was founded by a veterinarian, Royal Canin is committed to investing in the veterinary community.

Royal Canin is a global leader in pet health nutrition. In an industry that continues to adapt to popular trends in cat and dog food, our mission will remain the same; to constantly bring, through Health Nutrition and shared knowledge, the most precise nutritional solution for cats’ and dogs’ health nutrition needs, by building on constantly deepened scientific knowledge and Royal Canin’s roots in the feline and canine professional networks.

About Our Veterinary Diets

About Our Veterinary Diets

When veterinarian Jean Cathary founded Royal Canin in 1968, his focus was on developing preventative and therapeutic nutrition for cats and dogs.  From that day forward, we’ve developed our veterinary-exclusive therapeutic and wellness diets with this approach: Nutrition for better health. Nutrition can help the pet’s body recover faster, stay healthy longer and even help defend against health issues. Every ROYAL CANIN® veterinary formula gives priority to the pet, focusing on nutrients that help promote wellness, minimize clinical symptoms or promote recovery.

Veterinary-Exclusive Therapeutic Diets

Nutrition can be an important component in maintaining and even improving the health of your pet, but only a veterinarian can determine what role food can play if your pet is sick. Royal Canin has formulated a range of therapeutic diets that may be prescribed by your veterinarian in certain situations.  We urge you to ask your veterinarian about the role that nutrition can play in the management of illness and to ask if a Royal Canin diet is the right choice for your dog or cat.

You need the expert advice of your veterinarian before making any food changes or diagnosis. That’s why all ROYAL CANIN Veterinary Diets® are recommended and sold only by veterinarians.  Click here to see all our veterinary products.
