Hill's Pet Nutrition recently added Hill's Science Diet Simple Essentials Treats to its line petfoods for small and toy breed dogs.
The product line is available at PetSmart, Petco and pet specialty stores in three varieties: Skin & Coat Adult Small Biscuit, Light Adult Small Biscuit and Oral Care Adult Small Nugget.
“As the owner of a small breed dog, I know from experience that the ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to pet nutrition doesn’t work well for small and toy pets,” said Kostas Kontopanos, president of Hill's Pet Nutrition US. “We wanted to offer small and toy pet owners a high quality treat that’s a perfect reward for our little friends, without having to break off a piece of a treat that’s obviously designed for a much larger pet.”
