Choosing the Best Dog Food
for Your Pet

Making the Best Dog Food Choice

When it comes to your dog's nutritional needs, there are plenty of things to consider. Here are three tips to keep in mind when choosing a dog food.


Age of Your Dog

Nutrition at each stage of your dog’s life is important. Has your dog reached a milestone birthday like one year or seven years? It may be time to switch to an age-appropriate dog food. Hill’s life stage dog foods can give your puppy, adult or 7+ dog the nutrition he needs.


Puppies (Under Age 1)

From lean protein to high-quality fish oil, Hill’s
puppy food is specially formulated to keep up with a pup’s energetic lifestyle, as well as support healthy brain, eye & skeletal development.

Adult Dogs

Adult Dogs (1-7 Years)

To keep dogs healthy in their prime years, adult dog food should provide the right balance of high-quality ingredients, plus antioxidants and omega-6 fatty acids to help support their everyday needs.

Older Dogs

Older Dogs (Age 7+)

As your dog enters his golden years, his nutritional requirements will need to support more specific needs for mobility and brain function, such as phytonutrients and L-carnitine.
