    Hill’s Pet Nutrition carries on the tradition of caring that began in 1939 with one remarkable veterinarian. Our Prescription Diet, Science Plan, and Vet Essentials pet foods offer the highest-quality pet nutrition available. We‘re making a difference for people and their pets all over the world.

     

    The Hill’s pet food lines began in 1939. Dr. Mark L. Morris Sr. believed certain diseases in pets could be managed through carefully formulated nutrition. His ideas were visionary in veterinary medicine, and he soon had the chance to prove his theory.

     

    A young blind man named Morris Frank asked Dr. Morris if anything could be done to save his guide dog, Buddy, who was suffering from kidney failure. The result of Dr. Morris’ efforts was the nutritional formulation that became the first product in the Hill’s Prescrip­tion Diet line of therapeutic pet foods, and the world’s first pet food designed to help dogs with kidney disease. Soon after, Hill’s Pet Nutrition was founded and the field of clinical nutrition sprang to life. That first therapeutic dog food evolved into Hill’s Prescription Diet k/d , which is still sold today.

    Hill’s employs more than 150 veterinarians, Ph.D. nutritionists and food scientists who work every day around the world to create new products and improve existing ones that will help your pet live a long, healthy and full life. Hill’s scientists author more than 50 research papers and textbook chapters each year and teach at leading schools of veterinary medicine all over the world so we can put our knowledge and expertise into every Hill’s pet food for you.

     

    Our foods for dogs and cats are formulated for the optimal balance of nutrients and best taste. We know the best nutrition for your pet not only meets nutritional needs, but also avoids excess nutrients, such as fat and salt, that can be harmful over time.

     

    Hill’s long-term investment in learning, technology and talented scientists has helped us develop industry-leading product innovations, including the most extensive range of clinical nutrition products for sick, at-risk and healthy pets. Your pet’s well-being is our reward.
