here's a quote from The Dog Food Project.
"Maybe consumers are getting through to them after all...

"Hillís Pet Nutrition will reformulate its Science Diet dogs and cat foods to add more natural ingredients.
The company made the decision to reformulate the Science Diet petfoods because some consumers were making product choices based primarily on a set criteria for ingredients, rather than the overall promise of nutrition and clinical research. "
"Nutrition" and "clinical research" don't help anything if the ingredient quality is poor. Thanks for all of you who have been reading the Dog Food Project over the last 9 years and not only made better choices for your own dogs, but also educated others.
Hill's, like many other pet food manufacturers, will still have a long way to go even after these reformulations until you could really call their product "high quality", but at least fewer pets will suffer from the side effects of the worst ingredients."
