Hill's Pet Nutrition and 'Critter Fixers' to partner

Goal of the collaboration is to emphasize the role of nutrition in pet health.

Hill's Pet Nutrition joins hands with Drs. Vernard Hodges and Terrence Ferguson of "Critter Fixers: Country Vets" to emphasize the role of nutrition in pet health. This collaboration aims to educate pet owners, support aspiring veterinarians and diversify the field of veterinary medicine.

The partnership will encompass various initiatives, including educational programs at veterinary colleges and support for the Critter Fixers' 'Vet for a Day' program. This multifaceted effort will offer pet health and nutrition education for both pet owners and veterinarians.

Dr. Hodges expressed enthusiasm for the collaboration, highlighting the shared commitment to pet welfare. Hill's Chief Veterinary Officer, Dr. Karen Shenoy, emphasized the company's dedication to improving pets' quality of life and praised the partnership's celebration of veterinary professionals.

The collaboration's inaugural event will feature the Critter Fixers, Hill's representatives and students from Tuskegee University College of Veterinary Medicine on a "Feed The Love" float at the 2024 Rose Parade. This float aims to celebrate the bond between pets and their caretakers, while advocating for pet adoption.

Dr. Ferguson stressed the importance of representation and mentorship, especially in a field where diversity is limited. He highlighted the 'Vet for a Day' program as a means to inspire and guide future veterinarians.

The collaboration aligns with Hill's Pet Nutrition's 75-year commitment to advancing pet health through scientific research. It includes Hill's support for the Critter Fixers' program and aims to foster a more diverse and inclusive future for veterinary medicine.
