Hill's Prescription Diet Updates
Package Updates, New Shapes/Colors, & Formula Upgrade
Hill’s Pet Nutrition announced some important updates to their line of prescription diets and, as your pet’s healthcare provider, it’s important that we communicate this information to you. The updates will start to hit shelves this March and April.
The first thing you’ll notice going forward is updated packaging. Hill’s has modernized and simplified its packaging to make it easier to understand and identify the different prescription diets. Additionally, packaging will have a scannable QR code on each bag that will link you to helpful information and resources.
New Shapes & Colors
The next thing you may notice is that your pet’s dry food looks a little different. Some foods may have a new kibble shape, color, or size, which has been optimized for great taste!
Finally, some prescription diets have had a formula upgrade, including replacement of pork fat with chicken fat. You’ll find a yellow bag sticker on any foods whose formulas have changed. A seven-day transition period is recommended to help ensure a smooth transition to the new food for pets with known sensitives during diet changes.
