Hill’s Pet Nutrition Continues to Offer the Highest-Quality Pet Nutrition Available
TOPEKA, Kan. Feb. 9, 2011
In its first-ever pet food assessment, GoodGuide rated an array of pet foods on nutritional performance, caloric content, life-stage specificity and desirability of ingredients. Hill’s Science Diet® pet food was named number one in each of the four categories: dry and wet pet food for dogs and dry and wet pet food for cats.

GoodGuide also recommends for pet owners to look for brands that test their foods in accordance with feeding trials established by AAFCO, the Association of American Feed Control Officials. These procedures guarantee that the pet food’s nutrient claims are supported by feeding tests with animals, not just formulation. GoodGuide also cautions that the required "Guaranteed Analysis" box on pet food packaging should not be used to inform any decisions about the nutritional quality of the food. Only the full nutrient profile can provide a detailed and meaningful assessment of what a pet food contains.
Ultimately, pet owners should consult their veterinarians for nutrition recommendations for their pets’ specific health conditions and unique needs.
