Pet Food to Help Improve Joint Health

Your pet’s diet has a huge impact on their hip and joint function allowing for easy movement and mobility. Once a joint begins to degenerate, it can significantly impact the quality of a pet’s life and overall health. This may include stiffness, limping, lameness, difficulty getting up and down, reluctance to jump and play, fever, swelling, tenderness, and limited mobility.
Pets of all ages and sizes can develop arthritis and joint pain with hip and elbow health being a typical concern for older and larger breed dogs due to their increased age and size.

What is the best joint health pet food?

You can help maintain your pet’s hip and joint health with a high-quality diet designed to promote bone and joint health, while giving them all the vitamins and nutrients they need to stay healthy.

A pet food with high Omega-3 fatty acids helps to reduce inflammation around joints and manage pain. Fish-based recipes are particularly high in omega fatty acids. Combining a quality pet food with hip and joint nutritional supplements will give the best results for healthy, happy hips and jolly joints in dogs and cats.

Overweight pets place an unnecessary stress on their joints, so it is important to feed a diet high in meat and no cheap fillers.

Vetalogica Biologically Appropriate Pet Foods are a great option as a lean, high protein diet rich in omega fatty acids and no cheap fillers.

Other ingredients including glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM, help improve joint health and function in pets. These ingredients are found in therapeutic levels in supplements rather than foods.

While the most obvious link that exists between the food a dog or cat eats and their joint health relates to obesity, making sure you feed your pet nutritious and balanced meals is incredibly important for their overall health. Always try to source the very best meals you can, paying special attention to their protein content and source, and you should have one happy and healthy dog or cat on your hands.
