Hills Prescription Diet j/d Mobility is formulated to improve the mobility of dogs suffering from osteoarthritis in as little as 21 days.
Osteoarthritis is the most common cause of chronic pain in dogs. It affects 20% of dogs over one year of age, and is in the top 10 health problems diagnosed in dogs over seven years of age.
Symptoms of Osteoarthritis:
There are many factors that predispose pets to developing osteoarthritis. Obesity and developmental orthopaedic diseases like hip and elbow dysplasia are common causes. Previous trauma to the joint from accidental injury or surgery can also play a role. Once the joint is damaged or placed under excessive strain, damage occurs to the chondrocytes, the cells that create the cartilage that cushions the joint. The damaged chondrocytes release substances that result in inflammation of the joint which begins a vicious cycle of deterioration. Over time the cartilage disappears resulting in reduced mobility and pain.
J/d Mobility contains high levels of EPA, an omega 3 fatty acid from fish oil that helps to break the cycle of inflammation in arthritic joints. It also contains glucosamine and chondroitin to help protect the cartilage from further deterioration. Because obesity has a major role to play in osteoarthritis, J/d Mobility has a controlled calorie content and added l-carnitine, to help to support lean muscle mass and burn fat. This helps maintain your pet at a healthy weight and take the stress off arthritic joints. J/d Mobility is a complete and balanced diet that contains clinically proven antioxidants to support your dogs immune system.
