Hill’s history began when Morris Frank, a blind man, asked Dr. Morris if there was any therapeutic solution to save his guide dog, Buddy, who presented kidney disease.
Dr. Morris’ created a nutritional formulation that became the first product in the Hill’s Prescription Diet line of therapeutic pet foods, and the world’s original dog food designed for kidney health. Shortly, Hill’s Pet Nutrition was founded.
Today, Hill’s Pet Nutrition offers the following dog food brands:
- Healthy Advantage®
- Prescription Diet®
- Science Diet®
- Ideal Balance™
Healthy advantage® dog foods deliver five health benefits (immunity, weight management, digestion, skin and coat, mobility) to address the needs of dogs at every life stage.
