Healthy Habits


Know the source of common dental issues

At least 70% of pets develop dental issues by 2 years old1

  • AGE
    Dental issues are more common in older pets.
    Small dogs, especially those with a flat face or short nose, are more likely to have overcrowded or misaligned teeth that are difficult to keep clean and more prone to dental issues.
  • FOOD
    Some foods can increase your pet’s risk of dental issues, so ask your veterinarian for a nutritional recommendation.

Hill's exclusive Dental Kibble Technology promotes healthy gums by cleaning to the gum line and provides a cleaning action clinically proven to help reduce plaque and tartar - helping to keep teeth clean and breath fresh with regular feeding.


Step One in keeping pet teeth clean

With every bite, the fibre texture scrapes the tooth surface to help clean teeth and freshen breath.


Step Two in keeping pet teeth clean

Unique fibre alignment helps kibble stay intact to engulf the tooth.

Kibble gently scrubs away plaque and tartar to help clean teeth.
