Hill's Prescription Diet Joint Care j/d Wet Dog Food - Chicken
Hills Prescription Diet Canine j/d has been specially formulated to help improve mobility impacted by osteoarthritis and other conditions.
How it works
This complete dog food is carefully designed to improve your dog's flexibility by soothing joints and preserving healthy cartilage. It's fortified with naturally occurring glucosamine and chondroitin sulphate, which are the building blocks of cartilage and help repair damaged joints. Omega-3 fatty acids from fish oils, such as EPA, help to interrupt cartilage degradation and reduce pain in affected areas.
The range includes dry and canned mixes, meaning you can adapt it to make the transition from your dog’s current food as easy as possible, keeping their feeding routine the way they like it. Because of its special mix of fish oil and combination of healthy nutrients, this food is clinically proven to improve painful joints in just three weeks.
- provides your dog with a balanced diet while catering to their condition and helping to repair painful joints
- omega-3 EPA soothes joints and maintains healthy cartilage
- clinically proven to improve mobility significantly in as little as three weeks
- option of canned or dry food minimises changes to your dog's current routine.
When to use it
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis in dogs and the pain and stress on joints it causes can be difficult for both you and your pet. By eroding the cartilage around your pet's joints, the disease leaves nerve endings exposed and can cause inflammation and a loss of flexibility. If you notice that your dog has become reluctant to play, run or climb stairs, it's a good idea to book an appointment with your vet to check if they have developed osteoarthritis.
Once diagnosed, your vet might prescribe medication such as a painkiller, as well as offering recommendations for a change of diet. With the right treatment, your dog might soon be back to running, jumping and playing just like their old self.
Because veterinary diets are formulated for the nutritional support of pets with specific clinical conditions, we recommend that you only use them under professional advice. For more information on feeding Hills Prescription Diet Canine j/d to your dog, please consult your veterinary surgeon.
