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.

Too Much

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.

Just Right

Balanced levels of high-quality protein help promote lean muscle, proper growth and balanced mineral levels.

Too Little

Not enough protein can hamper your dog's growth and muscle development.

Too Much

Just like with humans, too much fat in your dog's diet can lead to unwanted weight gain.

Just Right

When fat levels are in the right proportions, the result is healthy skin and a glossy coat.

Too Little

Fats often get a bad rap. But too little can leave your dog with a dull coat.

Too Much

Vitamins are important for proper health. But an excess can put stress on your dog's vital organs.

Just Right

Balanced levels of vitamins help support a strong immune system.

Too Little

When your dog doesn't get enough vitamins, he may be sluggish and fatigued.

Too Much

An excess of minerals can lead to the formation of bladder stones. Too much or low-quality protein is often the culprit.

Just Right

When your dog gets minerals in the right proportions, he enjoys the benefits of strong bones and teeth.

Too Little

Foods that don't give your dog enough minerals can cause weakness.

Too Much

When fiber levels are elevated, unwanted gas can be the result.

Just Right

Fiber in the right proportions is an important component to healthy digestion.

Too Little

When fiber levels are low, the result can be loose stools.
