Hills Prescription Diet Canine J/D is an innovative food that eases aching joints and preserves healthy cartilage for dogs with joint problems and movement difficulties. The high levels of Omega 3 fatty acids and balance of Omega 3 and Omega 6 helps to soothe the tissue surrounding the joints. It also contains natural glucosamine and chondroitin sulphate, which supports cartilage repair.
Joint problems occur when dogs get older and cartilage is worn away faster than it can be replaced. The cartilage essential as it acts as a cushion to protect the bones, which is why when it wears away joints can become swollen and painful and movement is seriously impaired. Dogs with joint problems may find it difficult to walk, run or jump and they may also flinch or yelp when the affected area is touched. Changes like this in the joints are not completely curable; however the right nutrition at the right time will help to preserve the healthy cartilage that is left.

Recommended by our vet for our 2 1/2 yr old springer spaniel who has had 2 cruciate ligment ops on his hind legs in the less than a year. Much cheaper from Chemist Direct, our vet wanted Â£70 for a 12 kg bag so I will definitely be re-ordering and once I know how long the bag lasts Ill set up the auto order feature. Excellent quality food, easily digested and smells good(for dog food). My Harry loves it and will hopefully will help his injury related arthritis.
Excellent product and excellent delivery and service!! product recommended by vet as my lab has elbow dysplasia. excellent dry dog food with good results and lab loves it (but then he is a lab). Chemist direct much much cheaper than vets and other sites. Always delivers within a couple of days and keeps me informed of updates of delivery, packaged well. would definately recommend x
