"This generous support from Hill's will help OVC and the University to be at the forefront of learning and research, benefiting pets and their owners in Ontario and beyond."

The Hill's Pet Nutrition Primary Healthcare Centre will be an international centre of excellence for teaching and research in primary companion animal health care and service delivery.
