Is it possible that feeding puppy food to a 15-16 month old golden who is a little undersized would possible help to
increase the growth for the next couple of months? Due to the fact that Goldens do tend to continue some growth
past the 1 year mark, would the increase in protein and other ingredients help?
Just hung up with a client, we had an interesting discussion that I thought I should just write down because I assume his concerns are shared by many others. His questions were about milk replacers: why should he turn to these solutions instead of the goat milk he has always been recommended? The answer…Continue

In any discipline, there are always few words that might sound scary. In small animal reproduction? Well, canine brucellosis is definitely one of these… When I was working at the vet faculty, I wanted all our vet students to be aware of this disease: when they will be in practice, they will know when to suspect it. Back then I…
There are more than 40 canine sporting activities: canine athletes do exist, and like in all sports, nutrition is one of the most important factors that help improve their overall performance. As you may know, we recently relaunched our Energy 4800 formula (…Continue

Wondering if you should still test your cats for the Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, aka FIV? Well, the virus is present in feline populations all across Canada (seroprevalence varying depending on the province, as shown on our below). Just because of that, you should never stop testing if you want to decrease the related…Continue

We mentioned them in an earlier post this month, you should have received an email about them and maybe also seen them on our event page: our webinars are going Canada wide, and it starts next Tuesday!
Quick recap of the things you need to know:

Not really sure what Christopher Cross had in mind when he wrote his song, might have been about love I guess but I am pretty sure this had nothing to do with canine and feline reproduction! Indeed, this was the main content of all the 6 lectures we did last week! Brief recap of their contents!
Terrebone, QC, Wed Apr…Continue

Nowadays, Facebook is THE place to show our passions. And usually, passionate people try to stick together! Do you know we recently created a Facebook page for our Elite Breeders Partners? This is a hidden place to discuss, share and embrace those things that keep us up at night!

Newborn puppies are often considered the most fragile individuals inside a canine breeding unit. One of the reasons for that: at birth, their immune system is completely immature and unable to produce an efficient response against any pathogen. What’s Mother Nature’s solution to that? The colostrum! This is the first milk produced by the bitch, generally…Continue

Last week I was on the road with our workmate Miss Lisa King, who covers the Maritimes. Not a place I go very often but it is always a pleasure to visit New Brunswick, especially since I was told at the airport that it is the “only fully bilingual province” of the country! A perfect…Continue

I recently heard an interesting statement from a professor in human medicine, talking to his students: “50% of what you will learn today will be wrong or considered wrong in 10 years from now”. He was referring to the fact that medical science keeps moving forward. Do you think it is…Continue

Pretty busy schedule last week in Quebec:
When I was working at the vet faculty in Paris, we were hardly speaking about it with our breeders’ clients. Why? Well, because we assumed “breeders know about it”. Now working…Continue

We are very pleased to announce the appointment of two new members to the team PRO Sales for Eastern Region at Royal Canin Canada. They will both report to Francis Soucy and be supported by Stephane Grant.
At this point I guess you might wonder what this post is about… Nothing about science-fiction for sure, even if I am one of Star Wars’ greatest fans. However, that last fact is certainly the reason why we called it a trilogy!
In March we organized a series of 3 webinars focussing on the Basics on Canine…Continue
Just had an interesting conversation with one of my vet colleague concerning ectopic testes, aka missing “balls” (these are ALWAYS nice conversations to have during coffee-breaks). You might have heard about “ectopic testis”, “retained testis”, “cryptorchidism”… All are almost the same (it definitely means there is something…Continue

Do you like this picture? This is the best way I think to depict most of the breeders when their queen is about to give birth! And this is completely NORMAL! Cats are what we called a polytocous species (=multiple offsprings), therefore you have no way to be 100% sure that everything is going to be fine. What to do then? Anticipate! Here are 5 things you should know to be prepared!

How could I forget my first summer in Canada? Warm weather, blue sky,… and a trip to Whistler! This was my first encounter with a bear (the black version of them, apparently that’s why I am still alive!). This was also our very first Royal Canin Panamerican Convention.
I think I…Continue
Let’s go back in time… I am a third year student at the vet faculty in Toulouse, South-West of France. And when you’re a 20 year-old student, there are plenty of things you don’t really pay attention to.…
Here am I, wandering in a public park. It’s winter (South of France winter, which means outside temperature…Continue
