Default Best food for hip dysplasia

Hi Everyone! I am going to be addicted to this forum I can tell. My Jackson was diagnosed with diabetes earlier this week but it really got me thinking about my other pup Ella.

The vet has suspected she has had hip dysplasia since she was a puppy. It doesn't seem to bother her much but I do see the signs of it. When she runs she almost looks like a deer pulling both hind legs in at the same time.

I am learning how important good food is for our fur babies now that Jackson has been diagnosed.

Does anyone recommend a good food for joint issues? She has been on pedigree healthy joint but I want to look into some better options for her.

Thank you!

Default Re: Best food for hip dysplasia

I don't know about any certain brand of food, but I do know that dogs with HD and severe arthritis do better with grain free food.

I had a JRT who had severe hip dysplasia. He was on several drugs and was still having problems.

One thing I did try on him that I really noticed a difference was....
"Bell Shark Cartilage Joint Relief". I sprinkled half a capsule on his food (2 meals daily). After about 3 days I noticed him feeling so much better.
He was feeling so good that I started worrying that he would hurt himself running around. Brutus was not diabetic, so I don't know if this would affect BG.
