The profession of veterinary medicine and surgery is constantly changing with new research and technology. I’m very proud that all of our doctors regularly attend conferences, continuing education and study new information that comes out. It’s great that all three of our veterinarians bring new information, procedures, and technology back to the practice to share so that we can deliver the latest and best veterinary care to our patients. Our staff also participate in many “lunch and learns” and seminars to keep us all on the cutting edge of veterinary medicine.
I recently was away at some veterinary conferences getting some new and updated information. I attended 2 full days of Feline Medicine updates and then took another trip out to Kansas to get at nutrition course and tour of the Hill’s Pet Center and Company where Hill’s Pet Diets are researched and refined to perfection. Hands down, I was very impressed.
We’ve been using Hill’s Prescription Diets for many years with great success. I am even more impressed at the high quality and high tech center they have for researching, exacting and refining their products to perfection. There facility is pristine and nutrition research is outstanding beyond my expectations.
I took note of Hill’s mission statement, which “had me at Hello” because it dovetails with our mission statement at Wilkinson Animal Hospital.
Hill’s Vision: To make nutrition a cornerstone of veterinary medicine.
Hill’s Philosophy: We believe all animals — from your pet to the companion animals we care for — should be loved and cared for during their lifetimes.
To provide high quality pet health care in a friendly, upbeat and caring environment in which pets are helped to be healthier, happier, and to live longer, more comfortable lives; clients are educated on proper care of their pets; the human-animal bond is nurtured and protected; client expectations are consistently exceeded and staff are cared for and rewarded for their contribution
I think it’s pretty amazing that a pet food company has a mission statement to transform the lives of pets so that they have a longer healthier life with their people. Goes right along with our slogan “Where pets and their people are special”.
