Royal Canin unveiled the expansion of its gastrointestinal portfolio



Royal Canin shared the news that it expanded its Veterinary Gastrointestinal (GI) portfolio. The 5 new diets have been created through collaboration between Royal Canin researchers, specialists, and veterinary practitioners to help improve the GI health of pets through nutrition.

"Royal Canin is committed to making a better world for pets by putting fmline and canine needs at the forefront of scientific innovation," said Jean-Lin Pelatan, general Manager, of Royal Canin US Veterinary Business Unit, in an organizational release.1 "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."

According to the release, the 5 new diets are the following:1

  • ROYAL CANIN Gastrointestinal Low Fat + Hydrolyzed Protein Canine: A highly palatable and uniquely created by combining a highly digestible hydrolyzed soy protein, fiber blend, and a low-fat content level. This diet is for supporting long-term GI health in dogs that may experience food response sensitivities.
  • ROYAL CANIN Gastrointestinal Low Fat Small Dog: This new diet is formulated with nutritional management of small dogs that require a fat-restricted diet. This product features a mix of highly digestible proteins, fiber blends, and omega-3s.
  • ROYAL CANIN Gastrointestinal High Fiber Loaf in Sauce Canine: Formulated with highly digestible protein, this diet has a unique fiber blend that helps regulate intestinal transit and prebiotics to help promote a balanced and healthy microbiome.
  • ROYAL CANIN Gastrointestinal Hydrolyzed Protein Feline: This diet is made with a highly digestible hydrolyzed soy protein and fiber blend to help support long-term gastrointestinal health in cats who could be experiencing food-responsive sensitivities.
  • ROYAL CANIN Gastrointestinal Fiber Response Thin Slices in Gravy: This diet combines the benefits of wet diets to help with hydration along with psyllium as a crucial fiber to maintain a healthy transit in feline patients.

Recently, Nationwide Pet Insurance analyzed over 1.2 million insured pets in its database to help determine the top conditions affecting felines and canines in 2023. Their findings discovered that for feline patients, the top reason for a visit to the veterinary clinic was gastroenteritis which was the number 2 reason for canines.2
