Royal Canin Unveils Expansion to Gastrointestinal Portfolio, Announces Five New Diets

Tailored formulas in new, innovative diets lend support to digestive health in both cats and dogs.




(PRESS RELEASE) ST. CHARLES, MO — ROYAL CANIN U.S., a division of Mars, Incorporated and leader in pet health nutrition, has announced an expansion to its Veterinary Gastrointestinal (GI) portfolio. Gastrointestinal issues are the 3rd and 4th most common issue in cats and dogs that prompt a veterinary visit, and tailored nutrition can have a significant impact in nourishing and supporting their GI tract and microbiome.

Over the last 50 years, researchers from Royal Canin, together with specialists and veterinary practitioners, have been working hard toward a common goal: improving the gastrointestinal health of pets through nutrition.

“Royal Canin is committed to making a better world for pets by putting feline and canine needs at the forefront of scientific innovation,” said Jean-Lin Pelatan, general manager, Royal Canin U.S. veterinary business unit. “We are proud to introduce our newest GI innovations, backed by robust science, for cats and dogs. We are confident these unique diets will help veterinarians who need alternate diet options in gastrointestinal management.”

NASC Media Spotlight

At first it was just an idea: Animal supplements needed the same quality control that human-grade supplements receive. But that was enough to start a movement and an organization —the National Animal Supplement Council — that would be dedicated to establishing a comprehensive path forward for the animal supplements industry. In this Media Spotlight interview, NASC’s president, Bill Bookout, talks to PETS+ interviewer Chloe DiVita about the industry today: Where it’s headed, what’s the latest focus and why it’s vital to gain the involvement of independent pet product retailers.
