At Royal Canin, we believe the secret to providing cats and dogs with the best nutrition lies not in any passing fad, but in well-researched scientific fact. That’s why we always use a purely scientific approach to create diets designed to cater to the specific needs of pets of all shapes, sizes, ages, lifestyles and breeds.

From the time they’re born until they’re well into their golden years, dogs’ nutritional needs are constantly changing, and we believe their food should, too. That’s why we offer a full line of products designed for dogs at every life stage. 

From the time they’re kittens until they’re mature, cats’ nutritional needs are constantly changing, and we believe their food should, too. Your cat’s health matters, and that’s why we offer a full line of nutrition designed for every life stage. 

ROYAL CANIN® PROFESSIONAL products are specifically formulated to meet the needs of the breeding kennel and cattery.  Our innovative science-based solutions are the result of our 40-year collaboration and partnership with breeders across the globe.

Mother & Babycat

For pregnant and lactating Queens and kittens from weaning to 4 months of age

A kitten's growth can be segmented into two distinct stages, with very different nutritional requirements. The first stage is from weaning until 4 months.  The second stage is from 4 until 12 months.  During the first stage, your kitten grows very quickly, and important internal systems are developing rapidly.

 

NATURAL DEFENSES

NATURAL DEFENSES

Between 4 and 12 weeks after birth, the immunity transmitted by the mother decreases gradually while the kitten’s own natural defences are not yet fully functional. MOTHER & BABYCAT helps support the kitten’s natural defenses with prebiotics and a complex of antioxidants including vitamin E, vitamin C, taurine and lutein.


    DIGESTIVE HEALTH
DIGESTIVE HEALTH

At birth, the kitten’s digestive system is immature and it develops gradually over several weeks. That is why it is essential to support digestive health during the growth phase. MOTHER & BABYCAT contributes to promoting digestive health with highly digestible proteins and prebiotics (Fructooligosaccharides, Mannanoligosaccharides).


    SPECIAL EASY WEANING
SPECIAL EASY WEANING

Weaning is the transition from milk (mother’s milk or milk replacer) to solid food. A very small kibble, with a texture adapted to the 1st age kitten’s jaw and milk teeth, helps facilitate food intake and stimulate appetite. The product can be rehydrated to ease the transition from mother’s milk to solid food.
