Mixing pet foods

Published by

Using wet cat food to supplement or 'top dress' dry kibble is popular practice. In fact, research shows that many cats that eat a therapeutic dry cat food are also eating a wet cat food from a supermarket. It is very important that the therapeutic cat food is fed exclusively in order to work effectively.

It is therefore recommended NOT to mix Hill's with other food. Mixing with wet cat foods other than Hill's may:

  • dilute the precise balance of Hill's nutrition
  • cause undesired weight gain
  • expose your cat to higher levels of certain minerals

Hill's offers a wide range of products with no excess salt, clinically proven antioxidants and over 50 vital nutrients, vitamins and minerals. This is the ultimate in precisely balanced nutrition, formulated to enhance your cat's health and longevity.

If you wish to offer your cat a more varied diet, talk to your vet about complementing your cat's dry food with Hill's ™ Science Plan™or Hill's ™ Prescription Diet™ wet products. Both are packaged in either cans or pouches and are the only wet food solutions to effectively complement Hill's dry food.
