The World’s First Therapeutic Diet for Dogs
The Hill’s company is one of the best manufacturers of top quality pet foods in the world. It’s the favourite brand of many vets who chose this product to feed their own pets. In 1984 the founding veterinary surgeon made a special diet to help treat kidney disease in a Guide Dog – this event marked the launch of the Hill’s company. This diet, named Hills k/d,was the first “therapeutic diet” that was made commercially available anywhere in the world.
Since that time, Hill's have grown their range enormously, and created a large number of diets designed specifically to help in the treatment of particular medical conditions. These diets are known as “Prescription Diet” to indicate that they are not suitable for all pets, and should be used only if prescribed by a vet. Prescription diets are used for many health conditions, even an over-active thyroid gland (Hills Prescription y/d feline).
Hill’s also manufacture diets for normal, healthy dogs and cats, called Hill’s Science Plan. These are created to maintain life-long optimum health for pets of different ages and needs. Science Plan was a pioneer diet to be made in slightly different proportions to suit animals of different ages. They contain different balances of proteins minerals than food for adult dogs. For instance, Hills Puppy Food is available in different formulations and flavours and all of them provide precisely the right nutrition for a growing puppy.
Your older dog will need a well-balanced diet and Hills Science Plan provides products especially formulated for senior animals. Hill’s uses findings from their scientific research to ensure their dog foods are rightly proportioned, as only a complete and balanced nutrition will help your dog to remain healthy. Getting the balance right is what Hill's brand stands for. This means for example, that the amount of salt is reduced, as opposed to other brands that use salt to make their food tastier.
They make sure the food doesn’t exceed the amount of salt so that the food remains healthy.
Hill’s products provide complete and balanced nutrition and all the ingredients are wholesome and of best quality that pets can enjoy. As a guarantee of their quality, Hill’s offer a 100% refund policy is the pet doesn’t like their food. Their products are available in a dry kibbled form, in pouches or as a wet food in tins. No other company makes such a large range of dog and cat foods.
