Just like the human epidemic, almost 50% of the pet population is overweight. Even a little extra weight can impact your pet’s quality of life and his relationship with your family. Even a little extra weight can reduce play time, impact mobility and affect the lifelong general health of dogs. Extra weight also reduces play time in cats and can increase a cat’s risk of developing urinary conditions like bladder stones.
Fortunately, Hill’s nutritionists & veterinarians have developed two new Prescription Diet foods. Metabolic Plus Mobility Canine and Metabolic Plus Urinary Feline.
Metabolic Plus Mobility is especially formulated to help manage your dog’s weight and joint health. In fact, Metabolic Plus Mobility Canine has clinically proven nutrition to improve mobility in as little as 21 days1-4 AND reduce body weight by 13% in 60 days5. Metabolic Plus Urinary Feline has clinically tested nutrition to reduce the most common urinary signs by 89%6 AND is proven to reduce body weight by 11% in 60 days7
Metabolic Plus Mobility Canine contains a synergistic blend of ingredients, high levels of omega-3 fatty acids and a unique fibre blend from fruits and vegetables. The nutrition in Metabolic Plus Mobility naturally works with your dog’s unique metabolism, improves your dog’s ability to run, walk and jump and helps your dog feel full & satisfied between meals.
Similarly Metabolic Plus Urinary Feline contains a synergistic blend of ingredients and a unique fibre blend from fruits and vegetables. It also has controlled levels of magnesium, calcium and phosphorus for urinary tract health.
The nutrition in Metabolic Plus Urinary Feline naturally works with your cat’s unique metabolism, can dissolve struvite stones in as little as 7 days* and helps your cat feel full & satisfied between meals.
Both products are
