DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) is natural omega-3 fatty acid essential in the development of the brain and nervous system in young mammals.

DHA is a major building block of the brain and is a critical element in the development of vision and the central nervous system.

Why does my kitten need it?

The primary source of DHA is milk from your kitten's mother. Hill's® Science Diet® Kitten pet foods keep supplying this brain-building element long after weaning.

Where does DHA come from?

Just as in humans, the primary source of brain-developing DHA is from mother's milk. It is also available in foods such as certain fish, eggs and organ meat. Hill's Science Diet gets its natural DHA from easy-to-digest fish oils.

ALL Science Diet® Kitten dry pet food is enhanced with natural DHA.

Studies in many mammals, including puppies and kittens, have shown that enhanced levels of DHA help with brain and vision development. Science Diet Kitten dry pet food has an enhanced level of DHA. In fact, no other brand has better dry kitten foods with DHA than Science Diet.
