Dr. Cathary had the vision of a pet food company grounded in science; a company based on the principles of acquiring knowledge about pets, maintaining respect for them at all times and, most importantly, creating advanced and made to satisfy the needs of the pet – not the desires of the pet owner.
Despite countless fads, based on more than 45 years of rapid scientific progress, Royal Canin remains on the cutting edge of pet nutrition, and they have created specialized cat and dog food diets that are unlike anything else the world has ever seen. Royal Canin's’ vision is completed by their daily interaction with partner professional breeders and veterinarians, and by the ongoing research of scientists at Royal Canin. This has allowed them, more than any other company, to remain at the cutting edge of innovation and to bring the best health nutrition to cats and dogs.
