Köpeklerde eklem sertligi ne kadar yaygindir?
Stiff joints affect around one in five adult dogs1. Although almost half of all cases are in larger breeds, all breeds of dogs…can be affected. German Shepherds, Rottweilers, Labrador Retrievers and Golden Retrievers are particularly at risk, but so are smaller breeds such as the Shetland Sheepdog.

Köpegim için Hill’s Prescription Diet j/d Canine Reduced Calorie gerekli mi?

Köpegimin normal mamasinin yani sira j/d ile beslenmesi hala gerekli mi?
No, Hill’s™ Prescription Diet™ j/d™ is a complete high quality food in its own right. And as well as delivering a specific therapeutic benefit to…help your dog’s mobility, it’s also delicious! In fact, we’re so confident of the taste, if your dog doesn’t love j/d, we’ll refund you 100% of the purchase price.
j/d'nin tazeliginini koruma süresi nedir?
Hill’s new Fresh Pack System features a re-sealable zip-close mechanism to preserve freshness and retain the great taste of j/d. Once the bag…is opened, the food will remain at its best for up to 60 days.
Köpegime her gün ne kadar j/d vermeliyim?
You’ll find an easy-to-use chart on the side of all Hill’s Prescription Diet packaging that shows you the optimum portion size for the age, weight…and breed size of your dog. The quantity may be smaller than you expect – with a food as nutritious and highly digestible as ours, dogs don’t need to eat much to be satisfied and get all the nutrition they need. As a result, your pack of Hill’s Prescription Diet may well last longer than you expect, too!
Köpegimi halen yedigi mamadan j/d'ye nasil geçirmeliyim?
Like any change in nutrition, j/d should be introduced gradually over a 5 to 7 day period, mixing increasing amounts of the new food with…decreasing amounts of the current food until only the new Hill’s food is being fed.
j/d gerçek bir fark yaratiyorsa, bunu ne kadar bir süre sonra anlayacagim?
95% of dogs show signs of improvement in as little as 21 days2. Depending on the state of your dog’s stiff joints, you may notice…him returning to his former, more energetic and active self in many different ways. He may become more willing to use the stairs again, or to playfully jump into the car. He may be more excited to go on walks and keep up the pace more easily, limping less afterwards. Playtime may start to feature in his life again. You could notice him becoming less uncomfortable when he’s standing or sitting, especially when he’s ‘doing his business’. In general, he will probably sleep better and regain his old appetite.

Veteriner hekimim köpegimin asiri kilolu oldugunu söyledi ve ona kalorisi azaltilmis bir mama verdi. Onun biraz egzersiz yapmasini nasil saglayabilirim (normal yürüyüs disinda)? Çünkü veteriner hekim egzersizin yardimci olacagini söyledi.
There are numerous options to help put your dog back in shape:…
Dirence karsi yürüme - köpeginizi kum, sig su, düsmüs yapraklar, kar ya da bozuk zemin gibi farkli yüzeylerde yürütmeye çalisin.
Uzun yürüyüs - yürüyüse çiktiginizda, banklar, agaçlar, çukurlar ve agaç kütükleri gibi köpeginizin üstünden atlayacagi, sürünerek altindan geçecegi ya da üstünde dengede duracagi engller kullanin.
Git getir - bir topun ya da oyuncagin atilmasi, köpeginiz için harika bir egzersizdir ve bunu disarida tepelerde ya da merdivenlerde yaparak, getirmeyi onun için daha güç bir hale getirebilirsiniz. Ancak parçalanarak yaralanmaya neden olabildiginden, sopa firlatmamaya dikkat edin.
