Veterinary surgeon Dr. Jean Cathary founded ROYAL CANIN® in France in 1968. Dr. Cathary had the vision of a pet food company grounded in science; a company based on the principles of acquiring knowledge about cats and dogs, maintaining respect for them at all times and, most importantly, creating advanced nutrition to satisfy their specific needs. As Royal Canin became more established in France, its growth in Europe was rapid, followed by the introduction in North America in 1988.
Royal Canin recognizes that each cat and dog is an individual with unique nutritional needs. We are continuously investing in scientific research to remain at the forefront of nutritional knowledge and innovation. As such, our approach to pet nutrition is entrenched purely in science and research, not trends or fads. Every ingredient is judiciously selected and each formulation is precisely balanced to provide your pet with outstanding nutrition supported by years of research. The result is an extensive selection of formulas catering to the specific needs of individual pets based on life stage, size, lifestyle, breed, and health status.
