Am I eligible to get a payout in the Hill's Canned Dog Food Class Action? 

Consumers who purchased certain Hill's Prescription Diet or Hill's Science Diet canned dog foods in Canada between September 1, 2018, and May 31, 2019, are eligible for potential payouts.

Is Proof of Purchase Required in Order to File A Claim? 

Proof requirements vary depending on the type of claim:

  1. For Dog Injury Claims: Documentation such as veterinary notes, records, test reports, or statements from veterinarians may be required to support the claim.

However, consumers without proof of purchase can still make claims for a reduced amount, up to a maximum of $20 CAD.

How Much Money Can I Get? 

The amount of money a claimant can receive varies based on the type of claim:

  • Dog Injury Claims may entitle claimants to reimbursement of screening, diagnosing, and treating costs related to their dogs, up to a maximum of $500 CAD. In cases of dog deaths attributed to excess vitamin D consumption, claimants may be eligible for $5,000 CAD per Settlement Class Member.

  • Consumer Food Purchase Claims may provide claimants with a refund of the full purchase price of the products if they can provide valid proof of purchase. Claimants without proof of purchase may receive compensation up to the manufacturer's suggested retail purchase price for the Products, with a maximum value of $20 CAD.
