Is your pet’s food
out of stock?
Here are
some options

A surge in demand has led to several Hill’s pet foods being out of stock. We know how frustrating this is for many of you. As fellow pet lovers, we want to make sure your pet gets a nutritious and satisfying meal. Here are some transition tips you can try at home.


Consider switching to an alternative Hill’s pet food

If your pet has special health issues or nutrition needs, your veterinarian will be the best person to ask for a suggestion. If you decided to switch to another food, we recommend making the transition gradual for the best outcome.

Consider making your pet’s dry food more like wet food

Try feeding your pet the dry kibble version of the same diet and softening it with the following ratios:

Amount of Dry Food
1 cup = 8oz
Amount of Water to Add
1/4 cup 1/3 cup
1/2 cup 2/3 cup
3/4 cup 1 cup
1 cup 1 1/3 cups

Add the following “enhancers” to make your pet’s dry food more appealing

Before adding any of these to your pet's meal plan, check with your veterinarian to make sure they’re appropriate for your pet’s diet. Added properly, they should make up 10% or less of your pet's daily calories (kcal).
