Maintaining a Healthy Weight
The American Association for Pet Obesity Prevention's (APOP) 2013 Survey estimated that 52.6% of the US dog population and 57.6% of the US cat population is overweight or obese. Since a pet's frame is so small compared to a human's, just a few extra pounds can have a dramatic effect on a pet's quality of life, playtime, mobility, and overall lifelong health. It's important to monitor your pet's weight and body condition on a regular basis in partnership with your veterinarian. Your veterinarian will assess your pet's current weight and body condition score and determine if your pet needs a weight-loss treatment plan.
Royal Canin believes the secret to providing cats and dogs with the best nutrition lies not in any passing fad, but in well-researched scientific fact. That is why they 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.
About Royal Canin Veterinary Diets
When veterinarian Jean Cathary founded Royal Canin in 1968, his focus was on developing preventative and therapeutic nutrition for cats and dogs. From that day forward, Royal Canin developed their veterinary-exclusive therapeutic and wellness diets with this approach: Nutrition for better health. Nutrition can help the pet's body recover faster, stay healthy longer and even help defend against health issues. Every Royal Canin veterinary formula gives priority to the pet, focusing on nutrients that help promote wellness, minimize clinical symptoms or promote recovery.
Veterinary-Exclusive Therapeutic Diets
Nutrition can be an important component in maintaining and even improving the health of your pet, but only a veterinarian can determine what role food can play if your pet is sick. Royal Canin has formulated a range of therapeutic diets that may be prescribed by your veterinarian in certain situations. Royal Canin urges you to ask your veterinarian about the role that nutrition can play in the management of illness and to ask if a Royal Canin diet is the right choice for your dog or cat.
You need the expert advice of your veterinarian before making any food changes or diagnosis. That's why all Royal Canin Veterinary Diets are recommended and sold only by veterinarians.
