Royal Canin Canada Adds West Highland White Terrier and French Bulldog to Breed Health Nutrition™ Product Line
Pure breed dog ownership is on the rise—currently 54% of dog owners report owning a pure breed dog. Royal Canin, the global leader in nutrition designed specifically for the needs of pure breed dogs, has added two new formulas to its Breed Health Nutrition line: French Bulldog and West Highland White Terrier.
For over 45 years, Royal Canin has been observing the specificities of pure breed dogs while actively listening to feedback from respected breeders and breed enthusiasts from around the world. This allowed Royal Canin to research the specific needs of pure breed dogs and enabled it to pinpoint very specific needs for each breed that could be addressed through precisely designed nutrition.
Each breed-specific formula is designed for one individual breed’s needs, such as energy requirements, bone and joint health, muzzle structure and eating habits, digestive sensitivities and unique coat attributes. With the addition of the French Bulldog and West Highland White Terrier, Royal Canin now offers precise nutrition for 10 of Canada’s top 20 pure breed dogs.
“Our line of Breed Health Nutrition formulas continues to grow as we identify additional breeds that could benefit from a customized breed-focused approach. Both the West Highland White Terrier and French Bulldog were ideal breeds for the line, specifically because of some of their unique characteristics,” said Dr. Sara Ritzie, veterinarian and Royal Canin Scientific Communications Manager. “For example, we have the French Bulldog, whose short muzzle can impact eating, chewing, and digestion, while the West Highland White Terrier is notorious for having sensitive skin. These new diets offer solutions for both situations, as well as addressing many additional breed traits and nutrition considerations.”
In addition to French Bulldog and West Highland White Terrier, Royal Canin also offers Breed Health Nutrition formulas for Boxers, English Bulldogs, Chihuahuas, Cocker Spaniels, Dachshunds, German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, Labrador Retrievers, Miniature Schnauzers, Poodles, Rottweilers, Pugs, Shih Tzus and Yorkshire Terriers.
