Specific CJD Joint Support Dogs
-Processes that improve with the contribution of high levels of omega-3 fatty acids such as cachexia related to cancer, neoplasia, kidney disease and immune disorders and inflammatory processes such as arthritis and colitis.
-Daily diet for healthy dogs.
Properties and functions of its composition.
-Unique levels of EPA and DHA, omega-3 fatty acids derived from fish oil. These acids can influence the immune response by altering the production of eicosanoids. By producing less inflammatory eicosanoids, EPA and DHA can decrease the hyperreactive inflammatory response of the skin, making it the optimal diet for dogs with atopy. EPA is also effective in reducing inflammation and collagen degradation in the joints of dogs with arthritis.
-Uniquely elevated level of the omega-6 fatty acid GLA, derived from borage oil.
GLA can also influence the immune response by altering the production of eicosanoids. Increased GLA intake has been shown to reduce arthritis symptoms. Diet can help reduce pain in dogs with arthritis. By producing less inflammatory eicosanoids, GLA also decreases hyperreactive inflammatory skin reactions. GLA is also effective in dermatological problems related to a reduction in the activity of the enzyme delta-6-desaturase.
-The skin has an active metabolism and a high demand for nutrients. Increased levels of vitamins (A, E and B complex), zinc and selenium support healthy skin and coat.
-The diet is very palatable and is the most appropriate way to administer additional fatty acids to the dog.
-The diet contains high-quality protein.
-Since SPECIFIC F?D Skin & Joint Support has a slightly increased energy density, the diet of dogs with osteoarthritis should be adjusted taking into account their low level of activity.
-The replacement of the fatty acids present by the fatty acids (EPA, DHA and GLA) of SPECIFIC F?D Skin & Joint Support in the cell membranes, takes time. Therefore, it may take 12 weeks before the full effect of the diet is seen. An improvement in the patient's condition can usually be seen after 6-8 weeks.
-SPECIFIC F?D Skin & Joint Support is packed in a nitrogen atmosphere to protect the uniquely high levels of EPA, DHA and GLA.
