Hill’s Enriches & Changes Science Diet® Formulas: Even Better Cat & Dog Foods Now Have Natural Ingredients
New Recipe for a Better Life™ Formulas Offer Precisely Balanced Nutrition and Industry Leading Quality
And through their remarkable recipes and food formulas, they help animals live longer and happier lives.
So I’m happy to announce that Hill’s Pet Nutrition is reformulating Science Diet food for dogs and cats to add more natural ingredients. This is yet another major improvement to Hill’s Science Diet pet foods since the brand was launched in 1968.
Hill’s has endlessly innovated for over 70 years to provide precisely balanced nutrition to meet the specific needs of pets. Their product development continues to focus on delivering nutrition with clinically proven benefits, that is precisely balanced to deliver the optimal level of nutrients and customized for the pet’s age, size and lifestyle.
“We took a food that already delivered precisely balanced nutrition, industry leading quality and great taste and made it even better by adding the natural ingredients that pet parents want,” said Hill’s U.S. President Kostas Kontopanos.
Since its beginning in 1939, Hill’s has taken a consistent, scientific approach to developing nutritional therapies and wellness products for dogs and cats.
“But it’s not only about the science,” explained Kontopanos.
“It’s our dedication to our mission to enrich and lengthen the special relationships between people and their pets that drives the development and continuous improvement of our pet foods.”
“Helping improve the health, longevity and quality of life for pets is at the heart of everything we do at Hill’s” explained Kontopanos. “That’s why Science Diet is Veterinarians’ #1 choice to feed their own pets. We also want to be pet parents’ #1 choice, with the ingredients you prefer, the uncompromising nutrition that more than 50 precisely balanced nutrients deliver and the quality you can trust.”
Hill’s will reformulate Science Diet pet foods because some consumers were making product choices based primarily on set criteria for ingredients, rather than the overall promise of superior nutrition, backed by clinical research.
“By providing the key nutrients critical to maintaining optimal health, from ingredients that consumers prefer, our products, now even better, will deliver exactly what your pet needs: the benefits of complete and precisely balanced nutrition with a taste they will love.”
The new Science Diet® dog and cat food formulas will feature:
- Quality protein as the first ingredient
- Natural ingredients
- No more chicken by-product
- No more artificial colors or flavors
- Great taste guaranteed
Along with the new formulation, Hill’s also will introduce new packaging designs, as well as new color-coded product groupings under Life Stage, Life Style and Life Care, which will soon appear in pet stores. You can see the new packaging to the picture of the bag on the left.
This makes a Better Shopping Experience: Pet parents aren’t just looking for food, they’re looking for solutions. The new shopping categories reduce shelf clutter by 50% which makes finding the right Science Diet® food easier.
“We want pet parents to know that the ingredients we choose for any of our pet foods will always provide the precise balance of nutrients your pets need for optimal health and longevity,” Kontopanos said. “That is why this is the ‘Recipe for a better life’ for your pet and for your rich and long relationship together.
