Royal Canin is a SaYes Pet Care best seller. For this reason, we have decided to have a closer look at the brand so many pet parents love.
How the brand was born
The Royal Canin brand was established in 1968 by veterinary surgeon Jean Cathary, born 1927 in the small town of Puy-en-Velay. Cathary believed that certain pet health conditions, such as skin and coat complaints, were due to lack of proper diet. So, in his garage, he developed a cereal-based recipe that improved these conditions. In 1968, the recipe was registered with the trademark Royal Canin. The rest is as we say – history.
Why we love Royal Canin
The Royal Canin brand prides itself in its pursuit of knowledge. To develop ‘the world’s most precise pet health nutrition’, the company collaborates with leading scientific, veterinary and behavioural experts. Additionally, and by their own admission, the company is obsessed with pet health and the specific needs of pets. One only needs to look at the brand’s extensive product range and carefully crafted formulas to see that they are not kidding around.
Common questions about the brand
Let’s face it, the world has changed. Nowadays, we want to know where our food comes from and how healthy it is. And the first question we usually ask is how our food is preserved. Royal Canin, we are happy to report, preserves their dog and cat food naturally with mixed tocopherols, citric acid and rosemary extract. Their canned foods are also sterilized during the cooking and canning process to ensure they remain fresh. But how does the company ensure that the diet is safe?
Royal Canin quality and food safety
According to the official company website, Royal Canin ensures their diet is safe by putting suppliers through a rigorous selection process, monitoring every load that is delivered to their plants to verify the safety and quality of ingredients, and perform tests on finished pet foods before they are shipped to customers. Pet parents will also be happy to know that the company manufactures every pet food they sell in a plant that they own.
How do I introduce my pet to Royal Canin?
A new food should be introduced gradually to avoid any digestive issues.
- Mix 25% of your new diet with 75% of your pet’s previous diet for 2 or 3 days
- Then mix the two diets 50% and 50% for the next 2 or 3 days
- Continue to mix 75% of the new diet with 25% of the previous diet for 2 or 3 days
- You can now try feeding with 100% of the new diet.
How do I choose the product that is best for my pet?
What we love about the brand is that they sell both dog and cat food. So, for pet parents who have dogs and cats, this eliminates having to research the safety and nutritional value of different brands. Your dog and cat food from Royal Canin is equally nutritious, breed, life stage or health specific. This makes choosing the right food as easy as selecting from the product name. Choose for example, from a massive list of breed specific ranges, from Chihuahua to Rottweiler and Persian to Siamese. Or, choose general nutrition according to pet size or lifestyle nutrition requirements. Explore the Royal Canin range today.
