At Man’s side for millenia, the dog has adapted, but he has behavioral and nutritional requirements of his own. Knowing them and respecting them will guarantee his well-being and his health.

The nutritional puzzle

Print Send to a friend aA+ Aa-

Making a balanced food is like making a complex jigsaw including about 50 pieces, each piece containing a nutrient indispensable to the animal.

Optimal balance is obtained by all the ingredients being formulated in adequate proportions and complementing one another to contribute to a small or larger piece of the jigsaw puzzle.

The nutritional approach in Royal Canin

The nutritional approach means combining in one single food a complex jigsaw of just the right amount of about fifty nutrients needed to satisfy these four nutritional objectives and meet the real needs, precise and specific, of each body.
