Royal Canin has been at the forefront of science-led nutrition for over 50 years. Since the very first day, our nutritional approach has been based on scientific facts, and constantly fed by research from veterinarians, nutritionists and scientists from across the world.
Pet food ingredients explained
We know that an ingredient’s value depends on the quality of the raw material, how and when they are integrated into the diet, and how they are processed. That’s why we choose our ingredients based on their ability to provide high-quality nutrients specifically adapted to the needs of cats and dogs.
