As breeders we know you understand the importance of precise nutrition for your puppies and kittens. But, with so many brands now available-  supermarket, specialty store, ‘natural’, raw or DIY diets - how do you best explain to new owners why Royal Canin is the best choice for their new friend?

Years of research and development go into creating a Royal Canin diet.

Royal Canin was founded 50 years ago by a veterinarian, Dr Jean Cathary, with the passionate belief that what we feed our pets can dramatically change their lives. Today, Royal Canin diets are developed by an experienced team of veterinarians and nutritionists. Working together with breeders, many years of knowledge and research go into creating a new diet. All diets are made with high quality ingredients and exceptional quality control. 

Royal Canin diets are Complete and Balanced 

Proper nutrition is essential for the health and wellbeing of dogs and cats. A balanced, high quality diet can actually increase their life expectancy! The nutrients in each Royal Canin diet are specifically tailored to meet the needs of each individual animal. Protein, fat, carbohydrate, energy, vitamin and mineral levels are all carefully balanced, with no need to add any other foods or supplements.

High quality ingredients provide the nutrients your pet needs

Pet foods often have an ingredients list and a nutritional analysis available on the packaging. It is important to understand that ingredients and nutrients are very different things! 
Ingredients and nutrients are both very important, however it is the nutrient (e.g. protein) that is vital to the body’s needs, not the ingredient (e.g. chicken). The quality of a diet should not be determined by the ingredient list. Super Premium quality diets ensure the correct ingredients are selected to provide the optimal nutrient blend for your pet

No single ingredient is superior to another; the sum of all ingredients in a diet delivers the overall nutritional profile. The quality of the ingredients may however differ between diets, and can help explain the price difference between a super premium diet and a more economical product. The better the quality of the ingredient selected in a diet, the easier it is for the cat or dog to absorb and use the nutrients.

Royal Canin foods are highly palatable

Pets enjoy Royal Canin foods! Royal Canin diets are carefully designed right down to different kibble shapes and wet food textures to appeal to even the fussiest of pets. There is even a money back guarantee, if your pet doesn’t enjoy their new bag of Royal Canin simply return it to the store it was purchased from for a full refund.

Royal Canin diets cater for every life stage

Royal Canin understands that the nutritional needs of our pets change over time. From development and growth, to adulthood and old age, diets in the extensive Royal Canin range contain every nutrient that pets need at their different life stages. Some Royal Canin ranges also have targeted nutrients that can help with specific health sensitivities such as gastrointestinal, skin and weight issues. Royal Canin Breed Ranges are even more specific and have nutrients that focus on the health issues experienced by different breeds. 

Quality in means less quantity out!

Royal Canin diets are highly digestible – this means better quality and fewer stools for owners to clean up! Continuing a new puppy or kitten on their current Royal Canin diet will also reduce digestive stress and upset, helping them to transition to their new home more easily.
