Understanding a pet's nutritional needs
At Royal Canin, we know that Persian cats use the lower side of their tongue to pick up kibble, and Yorkshire Terriers generally show fussy eating habits. Dalmatian dogs do not process dietary purines like other dogs, and the weight of Maine Coon cats means their joints often need greater support. By understanding these nuances in their health and behaviour, we can tailor each diet to provide genuine support to each pet.
The science behind Tailored Nutrition
Royal Canin develops a diet when we identify a need, which is then translated into a precise nutrient profile and adapted to pets depending on their size, breed, age, lifestyle and sensitivities. As well as precisely measured individual nutrients, new developments also take into account palatability factors, including the shape, size and texture of kibble, which are adapted to the shape and size of the pets’ jaws.
