Metabolic Plus Mobility

Hills Prescription Diet Metabolic + Mobility Canine is formulated for the management of obese, overweight and obesity prone dogs with osteoarthritis.

Obesity is a growing issue for our pets, with a 2011 survey conducted in the US finding that over half of all dogs and cats are currently overweight or obese. Despite their cute and cuddly appearance, obesity can have serious consequences for your pets health and wellbeing. Being obese or overweight is a major predisposing factor for the development of osteoarthritis in dogs due to excessive strain and chronic inflammation of the joints.

Once a joint is damaged or placed under excessive strain, damage occurs to the chondrocytes, the cells that create the cartilage that cushions the joint. The damaged chondrocytes release substances that result in inflammation of the joint which begins a vicious cycle of deterioration. Over time the cartilage disappears resulting in reduced mobility and pain.

While it is clear to most pet owners that excessive weight can predispose to or aggravate arthritis, helping your pet to lose weight can be a difficult undertaking. This is in part due to the fact that overweight and obese pets use energy differently to their lean counterparts. When calories are restricted, their brain slows down their metabolic rate to conserve energy and defend its fat stores. This is an evolutionary response that is designed to prevent loss of fat during times of starvation. This response means that weight loss by calorie reduction alone can be very difficult to achieve!

Hills Prescription Diet Metabolic + Mobility has been clinically proven to reduce bodyweight in dogs by 13% in 60 days using a synergistic blend of ingredients that work with your pets unique metabolism to encourage weight loss and help regulate appetite. It is also formulated using high levels of soluble and insoluble fibre to provide feelings of satiety after eating, reduce hunger between meals and support good digestive health. Metabolic + Mobility works to manage the symptoms of osteoarthritis and slow its progression using high levels of EPA, an omega fatty acid that helps control cartilage degradation, as well as glucosamine and chondroitin, the building blocks of healthy cartilage. This diet has been proven to reduce pain in dogs with arthritis, as well as improving their ability to walk, run, play and climb stairs.
