The Hill Vet Essentials range of pet food

Oral Health

Feline dental disease is the most common disease found in Australian clinics and is the number one condition seen in dogs.

Nutritional features : Hills’ clinically proven unique mono-directional natural fibre technology kibble naturally scrubs teeth clean like a toothbrush. This reduces plaque and tartar build-up, thereby reducing the risk of gingivitis and periodontal disease.

Health benefits : Keeps teeth and gums healthy.

Key nutrients : Natural vegetable fibre, which provides more dietary bulk to increase satiety (makes the dog feel fuller) and supports gastrointestinal health and motility.

Weight Management

This food is low in fat and calories and high in fibre, which helps keep pets satisfied between meals without reducing their food intake. It also turns fat into a source of energy.

Nutritional features : Precisely balanced nutrition and high-quality protein. Fibre-enriched formula (natural fibre ensures satiety between meals) enhanced with L-carnitine (converts fat into energy to help maintain optimal body weight).

Health benefits : Helps to achieve ideal body weight in puppies and kittens and ensures optimal growth and development. In adult canines and felines, it helps maintain optimal body weight, build lean muscle and convert fat into energy.

Key nutrients : High-quality protein, natural vegetable fibre and added L-carnitine.

Joint Health (canine only)

Being proactive about mobility issues early on can avoid the need for more aggressive treatments in the future.

Nutritional features

Puppy: Supplies clinically tested levels of omega fatty acids and provides the building blocks for healthy joints and cartilage, with natural sources of glucosamine and chondroitin.

Adult canine: Enhanced with natural glucosamine and chondroitin. Controlled calorie content and added L-carnitine help maintain a healthy weight and avoid extra stress on joints.
