Royal Canin Pet Food - Review with Giveaway

Sunday, November 07, 2010

This contest is now closed. A winner has been selected.


No, I don't have any pets and no, I have no desire to buy one any time soon. However, many of our friends do and when I read that Royan Canin makes 100% natural pet food for cats and dogs, I just knew I had to enlist the help of my dear friend Sandra for this review. She owns two cats and was sent a Royal Canin Discovery Pack for them to sample. Here is what she had to say (with eloquence, no less!):
The sound of a bag crinkling puts my cats into a state of absolute delight. When I opened the three samples from Royal Canin, and poured each into its respective bowls, my cats just about toppled over each other with excitement. Roxy is especially more rotund and she proceeded to devour the succulent delight in the orange bowl, Protein Preference - a bowl which she nearly devoured as well. Pixie delved into the pink bowl of Savor Sensation and now and again explored the purple one filled with Aromatic Attraction. By the second day the girls had made their preference quite clear: Protein Preference was their winner! Not only are the names delightful, but clearly the flavors are too. Keep in mind, my cats are especially finicky, so I was quite impressed with this product and with how quickly my cats preferred it as opposed to their usual brand. Furthermore, the 100% pure and wholesome ingredients are especially vital not only for the overall health of my cats but also for their outer health as well, i.e., their coat. I’m convinced your cats will enjoy this delectable food as well!
Based on the information I received from Royal Canin, a cat's preference for food is not determined by its sense of taste, unlike us humans, because taste is its least developed sense. Therefore, the actual flavour is less important than the aroma, texture and feeling of satisfaction, and each cat has its own preferences in these regards. Royal Canin has conducted several studies and discovered that there are three main types of cat preferences. As a result, they have developed three meal options.
  • Aromatic Attraction for cats who are attracted most to the aroma of their food.
  • Savour Sensation for cats who are attracted most to the shape and feel of food in their mouth. 
  • Protein Preference for cats who enjoy a feeling of satisfaction after a meal.
If you don't know which one your cat would like, they now offer a discovery pack with samples of all three for your cat to try. And did you know...? Royan Canin was first founded in France in 1967 and  added a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Guelph, Ontario in 2008, reinforcing their commitment to the Canadian pet food market.

The SelectiveTM line for cats are now available in stores across Canada including Pet Valu, Global Pet Foods, Petcetera, Mondou, and several other independent pet stores. The Discovery Pack (which offers samples of each SelectiveTM variety) is available for an MSRP of $5.99, while bags of Aromatic Attraction, Savor Sensation, and Protein Preference range from $18.99 to  $35.99.
Two of my readers will each win a Royal Canin Discovery Pack as well as a coupon for a free large bag of cat food for whichever meal their cat prefers.

  1. Cats are carnivores, so their health depends on the regular intake of nutrients from animal sources. Unlike dogs, cats do not convert beta-carotene from vegetable sources into vitamin A.

    One of my daughters has cats and would love this!

  8. I did not know this :Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins and their derivatives. Proteins contain a total of about 20 amino acids, only 11 (cats) or 10 (dogs) of which must be provided in food because they are not produced by the body - did not know a think about amino acids, it is pretty complex for my morning brain but this food does sound pretty good.

  10. I learned that Vitamin C is "generally non-essential in dogs and cats" but "it is important to provide vitamin C in the food when the animal’s liver cannot produce enough."

  17. Cats and dogs have considerable protein requirements. Some physiological conditions are more demanding than others, since they involve more tissue building and repair: growth, gestation, lactation and physical exertion.
