Background: Hill's Pet Nutrition's mission is to help enrich and lengthen the special relationships between people and their pets through quality nutrition. At the Hill's Pet Nutrition Center in Topeka, kansas, a staff of veterinarians and board-certified specialists in nutrition and internal medicine work alongside pet partners to develop nutritious and tasty pet food. Each pet partner has a team to provide it clean, roomy living quarters, exercise areas, an agility course, and other human and animal companions. The world-class facility also houses a fully equipped veterinary hospital certified by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) - conforming with the highest standards of small animal veterinary hospitals today. Today, Hill's Pet Nutrition carries on the tradition of caring that began in 1939 with one remarkable veterinarian. The company has supported awards for AVC students for years. In 2019, Hill's Pet Nutrition revised the criteria for its awards, resulting in a new cohort of AVC students receiving Hill's support.
