VetEssentials unique technologies
Hill’s has been helping pets achieve lifelong health for over 70 years. Quality, taste and innovative nutritional advances for better pet health are our highest priorities. With your pet’s best interests in mind, Hill’s has developed the following unique technologies to include in our pet foods:
Dental kibble technology
Hill’s™ VetEssentials Adult and Mature Adult base range dog foods utilise a special dental technology that provides a cleaning action clinically proven to help reduce plaque and tartar, help freshen breath and reduce the long-term risks of gum disease.
Special fibres help the kibbles stay in contact with the tooth surface right to the gumline. The kibble then gently scrubs away bacteria-laden plaque and tartar to help support good dental health and fresh breath.
Weight Management Technology
Hill’s™ VetEssentials NeuteredDog formula has a breakthrough weight management technology to help keep your neutered dog at an optimal healthy weight.
The unique blend of ingredients and low fat content that make up the weight management technology helps your neutered dog avoid the typical weight gain after spay or castration surgery, while still maintaining lean body mass. Clinically proven to support calorie burning, this weight management technology promotes ideal weight for a better quality of life.

Canine nutrition for all lifestages
Did you know that a dog’s nutritional needs change throughout life?
less than 1 year
Puppies go through huge changes during their growth and development phases – growing up is hard work! With a whole world to discover, puppies have a great need for energy and protein to grow new cells, along with balanced mineral levels to encourage healthy growth. Healthy doses of Omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA are proven to benefit brain and eye development, while plenty of antioxidants support growing immune systems. Tender young tummies need easily digestible food that’s tasty enough to encourage weaning.
Adult dogs’ needs can be summed up in one word: “Maintenance”. Maintaining great health throughout the years of adulthood can be a finicky business, but with the right balance of minerals, energy content and easy-to-digest prebiotic fibres dogs can keep their organs and muscles healthy throughout adulthood, preserving great health for the future. Holding on to great health is important for later life, as well as for preventing illness.
Neutered dogs need fewer calories to maintain healthy body weight, and may gain weight easier than their intact counterparts. Over time, excess body weight can contribute to other conditions, such as mobility issues. This means it's vital to keep dogs fit and trim in the years following neutering. Maintain healthy weight and provide the building blocks of healthy joints – glucosamine & chondroitin – to stave off future problems. Prebiotic fibres help keep dogs’ digestive systems on track, while effective antioxidant levels strengthen natural defences for great long-term health!
Mature Adult dogs need just the right balance of nutrition to keep healthy during their golden years. Staying active and fit – and young at heart! – requires healthy bones and organs, strong immunity, healthy teeth, and more. Feeling great means feeling younger and avoiding conditions which can lead to disease.
