Hill's Research & Innovation

We Share a Special Relationship With Veterinarians

Hill's employs over 200 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.

The Hill's Pet Nutrition Center in Topeka, Kansas, is a state-of-the-art center that illustrates our commitment to improving the health of cats and dogs. In addition to a staff of veterinarians and board-certified specialists in nutrition and internal medicine, we also have a staff of companion pets. Our furry team members put our products to the test, ensuring pets get the most nutritious, best-tasting food available. In return, we give them everything a pet could want, including clean, roomy living quarters, exercise areas, an agility course and plenty of friends, both human and animal. Each pet has his own dedicated team. They develop a strong trust and human-animal bond, just like you and your pets do. Learn more about our commitment to animal welfare.

Consequently, our products have been trusted by millions of pet owners since 1939, and, today, countless veterinarians recommend and feed their own pets Hill's products more than any other brand of pet food.
