Hill's Pet Nutrition

Our Company


To help enrich and lengthen the special relationships between people and their pets.


To make nutrition a cornerstone of veterinary medicine.


We believe all animals — from your pet to the companion animals we care for — should be loved and cared for during their lifetimes.

Our History

Inspired by a Guide Dog

In the late 1930s, Morris Frank, a young blind man, was touring the country with his guide dog, Buddy, promoting Seeing Eye® dogs. However, Buddy, a German shepherd, was suffering from kidney failure and Mr. Frank asked Dr. Mark Morris Sr. for help.

Dr. Morris believed Buddy's illness was the result of poor nutrition, so he developed a new pet food with his wife, Louise Morris, in their kitchen.
