• Are there any real benefits to pet foods that claim to help joint disease?

    The benefits your pet may experience from a diet that claims to help joint disease can vary depending on the specific diet or the severity and type of the joint disease. Some pets get great value from these diets and may lead healthy and happy lives with just the diet as treatment.

    I recommend having a conversation with your local veterinarian. They know your pet best and can work with you on a treatment plan, which may include a special diet.
