Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a condition often associated with advanced age. According to recent data 1 out of 10 dogs will develop CKD in his lifetime. It is also common for senior dogs to develop other age-related conditions such as reduced mobility or cognitive dysfunction which can significantly impact the quality of life of both the pet and the pet parent.
Studies have also shown that 80% of dogs greater than 8 years of age suffer from degenerative joint disease (DJD). Other data shows that 50% of dogs over 11 years of age display at least one sign of cognitive decline. Nutrition can play a key role in managing these age-related conditions. That is why Hills nutritionists and veterinarians developed new Hilll’sTM Prescription DietTM k/dTM+Mobility for dogs. This clinical nutrition not only supports your dog’s kidney function, but also helps to improve his mobility and increase his cognitive alertness and vitality.
