Nutritional Solutions for Sore Joints
Research has shown that osteoarthritis affects 20% of the canine population over the age of one. Osteoarthritis, also known as Degenerative Joint Disease (DJD), is the progressive and permanent deterioration of cartilage surrounding our pets joints, it results in inflammation, restricted mobility and pain. Whilst it is evident that osteoarthritis can affect dogs and cats of any age, it is our senior friends who are most at risk; sadly many of them suffer in silence.
Fortunately it has been shown that in combination with controlled exercise, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications and weight management, nutrition can limit inflammation associated with osteoarthritis.
Hill’s Prescripton j/d is a diet specifically designed to be therapeutic for managing osteoarthritis in the home. With its high levels of omega-3 fatty acids or EPA, Hill’s prescription j/d has been clinically proven to reduce cartilage breakdown, helping our furkids to enjoy longer walks and more frequent play.
Although omega-3 fatty acids are available on the market in supplement form, quality varies greatly and very high quantities would need to be offered on a daily basis to equal the levels offered in Hill’s Prescription j/d. So if you have a pet at home suffering from clinically diagnosed osteoarthritis, why not ask our friendly team about the benefits of transitioning onto Hill’s j/d today.
