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.

As a company that was founded by a veterinarian, Royal Canin is committed to investing in the veterinary community.

Royal Canin is a global leader in pet health nutrition. In an industry that continues to adapt to popular trends in cat and dog food, our mission will remain the same; to constantly bring, through Health Nutrition and shared knowledge, the most precise nutritional solution for cats’ and dogs’ health nutrition needs, by building on constantly deepened scientific knowledge and Royal Canin’s roots in the feline and canine professional networks.

Key Facts

The first few months of life are a critical period in the kitten's life:

  • The transition from milk to solid food is delicate and can result in digestive disorders
  • The kitten’s milk teeth appear and vital functions begin to develop
  • Kittens prefer a specific Macro Nutrient Profile
  • From the 4th to the 12th weeks of the kitten’s life, the immunity from the queen gradually wears off, and the kittens develop their own immune system
Babycat Instinctive 10

1st Stage Easy Start

A unique mousse texture* is perfectly adapted to kittens aged 1 to 4 months to facilitate the transition from milk to solid food.

Instinctively Preferred

BABYCAT INSTINCTIVE 10TM has been specifically formulated to correspond to the optimal Macro Nutrient Profile** instinctively preferred by 1st stage kittens and lactating queens.

Immunity Booster

Helps to build the kitten’s natural defences by stimulating antibody production thanks to mannan-oligosaccharides and an antioxidant complex (vitamins E and C, taurine and lutein).

* Evaluated and developed with breeder partners. ** Patent pending ROYAL CANIN.
