Hill's Prescription Diet Feline j/d
Joint related problems in cats are very common. Cartilage in the joints may wear away faster than it can be replaced and cause discomfort to your cat. If your cat has joint problems you will notice that he may find movement difficult and is reluctant to walk, run and jump. He may also flinch or yelp when touched in the affected area.
Joint problems can occur when cartilage is worn away faster then it can be replaced. Cartilage acts as a cushion to protect the bones, so when it wears away, joints become swollen and painful causing mobility to be impaired. These changes in the joint are not totally curable, the good news is that with the right nutrition can help ease aching joints and preserve healthy cartilage, thats why Hills made Hills Prescription Diet J/D.

My cats are eating it like it's sprinkled with catnip.I mix j/d with Hills feline k/d as my cat's mum is a little achy and has some renal issues, they love it too, I can hardly keep up. Highly recommended, especially the mix although it is only supposed to be for their mum, little thieves...
Hills jdThe cat really likes these but turns her nose up at other brands which claim to be good for joint problems. They seem to help with her mobility.
Vet's recpmmendationAs recommended by our vet, we have been feeding our ageing cat this Hills Prescription Diet D/J for some years and she has continued to enjoy good health.

Hills prescription diet j/dOur vet recommended using j/d. After a while on it we were able to take the cat off medication, he moved so much easier. Years later he has had to go back onto medication but the years medication free will have been good for his health.
