Factors such as age, excess weight or congenital defects can affect your dog’s joint health and his or her mobility. Poor joint health can lead to discomfort in your dog. The food your dog eats plays an important role in its overall health and well being and the right nutrition can help your dog maintain healthy joints and improve mobility. Hill’s Prescription Diet Canine j/d Joint Care with Chicken is a clinical nutrition especially formulated to help support your dogâs mobility. Degenerative joint disease is the most frequent cause of chronic pain in adult and ageing dogs and research has shown that eicosapentaenoic acids (EPA) can help to reduce cartilage-damaging enzymes. The right combination of omega 3 fatty acid and omega 6 helps to reduce inflammation and high levels of glucosamine and chondroitin promote strong, healthy cartilage. The clinically proven combination of nutrients in Hill’s Prescription Diet Canine j/d Joint Care with Chicken can help improve your dogâs ability to run, walk and jump.
