An important message from Burton regarding the pricing of Hill’s Science Diet at Burton’s Total Pet.
You may have noticed an uncharacteristic discrepancy between our price and that of our competitors on large bags of Science Diet. I apologize for the inconvenience. We cannot get any sort of price cooperation from Hill’s Science Diet because I refused to sign a contract guaranteeing prime placement in our store and a place among my top three pet food recommendations. I do not consider Science Diet to be in the 100 best formulas, let along the top three. I would lose credibility if I recommended a food because Hill’s paid me to do so. This is an all too popular way for some pet manufacturers to sell certain brands. Think about where the money comes from to pay for this type of marketing. It comes directly out of the food’s overall quality. Again I apologize for the difference in pricing, but I will not be blackmailed. I will not recommend a food that I believe to be of lesser quality.
