TOPEKA, KAN. — Hill's introduces Prescription DietÂ® j/d, a pet food clinically proven to reduce pain and improve mobility in dogs with osteoarthritis.
Prescription Diet j/d is distributed through veterinarians and is available in dry and canned formulas.
"Prescription Diet j/d contains the highest levels of omega-3 fatty acids and the lowest omega 6 to omega-3 fatty acid ratio among therapeutic foods for dogs with arthritis," the company says.
The product also contains glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate and L-carnitine to help maintain optimum body weight.
"We allow the doctor to supplement the diet with non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NAIDS) or other therapies that might be appropriate, and they appear to be synergistic, so they work well together," says Dr. Bill Schoenherr, principal scientist, Hill's Pet Nutrition.
Hill's also improved Prescription Diet k/d, canned dog food with better palatability and softer texture for renal disease maintenance.
The product contains high omega-3 fatty acids and low sodium to help slow progression of renal disease, the company says.
Low levels of protein and phosphorous in the product, help reduce kidney workload.
"The added soluble dietary fiber decreases urinary nitrogen excretion and lowers serum urea nitrogen," according to the company.
