How does your natural dog food measure up?
At Hill's, our team of pet nutritionists uses only natural ingredients to create recipes with optimal levels of over 50
nutrients, providing the perfect balance of nutrition for your pet's health - nothing more, nothing less.
You can have too much of a good thing. Excess and/or low quality proteins can bring unwanted minerals, which may cause kidney stress and lead to kidney stones.
Balanced levels of high-quality protein help promote lean muscle, proper growth and balanced mineral levels.
Not enough protein can hamper your dog's growth and muscle development.
Just like with humans, too much fat in your dog's diet can lead to unwanted weight gain.
When fat levels are in the right proportions, the result is healthy skin and a glossy coat.
Fats often get a bad rap. But too little can leave your dog with a dull coat.
Vitamins are important for proper health. But an excess can put stress on your dog's vital organs.
Balanced levels of vitamins help support a strong immune system.
When your dog doesn't get enough vitamins, he may be sluggish and fatigued.
An excess of minerals can lead to the formation of bladder stones. Too much or low-quality protein is often the culprit.
When your dog gets minerals in the right proportions, he enjoys the benefits of strong bones and teeth.
Foods that don't give your dog enough minerals can cause weakness.
When fiber levels are elevated, unwanted gas can be the result.
Fiber in the right proportions is an important component to healthy digestion.
When fiber levels are low, the result can be loose stools.
