Hill's is excited to introduce two new food's to their prescription range:

1.  Hill's Canine Prescription Metabolic + Mobility. 

Excess weight and mobility issues usually go together. Overweight dogs are prone to a range of mobility issues and even a little bit of extra weight can put extra strain on joints. Dogs with arthritis are less able or willing to exercise, which can easily lead to or worsen weight problems.

Hill's Canine Prescirption Metabolic + Mobility is clinically proven to improve mobility in as little as 21 days AND reduce body weight by 13% in 60 days.


2.  Hill's Feline Prescription Metabolic + Urinary

Just like the human epidemic, almost 50% of the pet population is overweight. Even a little extra weight can impact the pet's quality of life and relationship with family because that extra weight can reduce play time, put your cat at risk of urinary conditions like bladder stones and affect the lifelong general health of your cat. 

Hills Feline Prescription Metabolic + Urinary is clinically proven to reduce the recurrence of the most common urinary signs AND reduce weight by 11% in 60 days.

Hill's Science Plan Perfect Weight. 

As little as 20% excess body weight can increase a pet's risk of significant health problems, including skin disease, diabetes, arthritis and reduced mobility and shortened life expectancy. 

Keeping your pet at a healthy weight can lead to a longer happier life. Science Plan Perfect Weight is suitable for long-term feeding from 1 year onwards to help maintain a healthy weight for life. This food is ideal for sterilized pets to help prevent weight gain.

Hill's Science Plan Perfect weight comes in a delicious savoury chicken flavour that dogs and cats love.Perfect weight contains carefully measured levels of protein and fiber to help keep pets feeling full and satisfied. 

Obesity is a serious health concern. We recommend any overweight or obese pet to be seen by your veterinarian to determine a diet to suit their needs.
