Understanding stiff joints
‘Stiff joints’ is a general term for changes in the joint caused by normal or abnormal wear and tear. Click here to learn more about the causes of stiff joints. For dogs who have stiff joints, the cartilage (the tissue that ‘cushions’ the joint between bones) is worn away faster than it is replaced. When it wears away, joints become stiff, mobility decreases, and pain and disability progressively develop. Although stiff joints are not curable, the good news is that it’s been clinically proven that feeding your dog clinical nutrition Hill’s™ Prescription Diet™ j/d™ can help make the difference.
If you have answered yes to some of the above, then your dog may be suffering from stiff joints. Please make sure you consult your vet.
