ST. CHARLES, Mo., June 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Royal Canin, the global leader in pet health nutrition, is launching new breed specific wet formula options for small dog breeds and the Maine Coon cat that are the perfect complement to the existing Royal Canin dry pet food diets.
There are many advantages to feeding wet formulas as a complement to Royal Canin's existing breed specific dry pet food formulas. Wet formulas provide additional feeding options for pet owners that have finicky eaters like the Yorkshire Terrier or the Chihuahua.
"At Royal Canin, the precise nutritional needs of cats and dogs are at the heart of the innovative formulas we develop," said Dr. Brent Mayabb, experienced veterinarian and Royal Canin Vice President of Corporate Affairs. "The wet formulas are designed specifically for these unique breeds and complement our existing dry formulas."
The following Royal Canin breed wet formulas are available in convenient 4 packs at select retail stores for adult small breed dogs in addition to the first adult Maine Coon cat breed wet formula. All wet formulas are highly palatable and each one is a perfect complement to the Royal Canin Adult formula for that breed.
