Hill’s Pet Nutrition / Corporate Member Profile

In 1976, the Colgate-Palmolive Company purchased Hill’s Pet Nutrition. Today Hill’s® pet food products are available in 86 countries around the world. The company sales reached $1 billion in 1999, and continues to grow each year. Veterinarians worldwide recommend and feed their own pets Hill’s products more than any other brand of pet food.

At the Hill’s Pet Nutrition Center in Topeka, Kansas, a staff of veterinarians and board-certified specialists in nutrition and internal medicine work alongside a staff of companion pets to develop nutritious and tasty pet food. Each companion pet has a team to provide it clean, roomy living quarters, exercise areas, an agility course, and other human and animal companions. The world-class facility also houses a fully equipped veterinary hospital certified by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) — conforming with the highest standards of small animal veterinary hospitals today.

Today, Hill’s Pet Nutrition carries on the tradition of caring that began in 1939 with one remarkable veterinarian. Our Prescription Diet and Science Diet pet foods offer the highest-quality pet nutrition available.

Company Description

Hill’s Pet Nutrition is barking up the right tree as one of the top producers of premium pet food worldwide. The company’s products are available through pet supply stores, pet shelters, and veterinary professionals. Its cat and dog foods are produced and marketed in varieties that cater to a pet’s dietary requirements, medical condition, and age. Hill’s also makes animal treats. This subsidiary of Colgate-Palmolive was founded in 1948, after a veterinarian cooked up a special food to treat a guide dog’s kidney problems.
