Hills J/D & Arthritis

If your dog or cat has been diagnosed with arthritis or mobility problems, the right nutrition can help manage the condition, reduce pain and keep your pet active.  Studies have shown that Hills Joint Disease Diet can help improve your dog’s mobility in just 21 days or your cat’s mobility in 28 days.

Arthritis is the general term for abnormal changes in the joint.  These changes occur when cartilage is worn away faster than it can be replaced.  Cartilage acts as a cushion to protect the bones, when it wears away joints become swollen and painful.

Although arthritis is not curable, the good news is that nutrition can help play an integral part in helping manage the condition.  Using a controlled diet as Hills J/D (Joint Disease) over the long-term, as part of a treatment plan, provides high levels of omega-3 fatty acids which interrupt the destruction of cartilage. The controlled calorie content and L-carnitine help maintain a healthy weight and avoid stress on joints. Prescription diets should be used as the sole intake for animals to get the maximum benefit for their condition.
