Hill's Prescription Diet Feline j/d
Hill's Prescription Diet Feline j/d keeps your cat’s joints working smoothly and healthily.
What it's for
Age comes to us all and when it comes to cats, they sometimes develop joint pain. It's more common in big breeds like the Maine Coon, or in cats that are overweight. Some cats develop joint pain at a younger age, for example if they have osteoarthritis.
Cats don't like to show their pain, so it's quite hard to tell if your cat’s suffering. Look out for them moving stiffly, becoming less flexible, or getting irritated when you pick them up or pet them. You might notice they're moving less, jumping less and basically being lazy. They might even stop using their litter box. These could all be signs of bad joints, so make sure to see your vet as soon as you notice your cat acting differently.
If your cat does have arthritis, there are some things you can do to make them more comfortable. Make sure their bed’s nice and cosy and well away from cold draughts. Massage them gently when they're relaxed and help them by grooming any areas that they can't reach. Make sure their food, water and litter box are easy to reach: no climbing or jumping!
- better mobility in as little as thirty days
- omega-3 fatty acids ease the pain of sore joints
- has lots of docasahexanoic (another omega-3 fatty acid) to keep cartilage healthy
- also has glucosamine and chondroitin, the 'building blocks' for cartilage
- high levels of L-carnitine, which turns fat into energy
- low calorie to encourage weight loss.
How it works
This food is packed with ingredients to ease and soothe painful joints while keeping cartilage in prime condition. There are lots of omega-3 fatty acids to help make moving around easy, while docosahexanoic acid (another type of omega-3) keeps the cartilage around your cat's joints healthy. The recipe also contains glucosamine and chondroitin, which your cat's body can use to build new cartilage. This lifts some of the symptoms of joint pain.
Because weight can cause joint pain, the recipe is low calorie to help your cat reach and maintain a healthy weight. It also has L-carnitine, which helps your cat's body turn fat into energy.

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.
Great productMy cat has been in this food for some years and it has really helped her.
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.
Amazing resultsOur vet recommended we give this product to our two 16yr old Tonkinese cats. The improvement in their mobility has be amazing and they leap about again, if not like kittens, then not as arthritically as previously.
