VD Joint & Mobility Low Calorie for dogs

18. August, 2021

In dogs diagnosed with joint disease, it is extremely important to maintain optimal weight. In addition, each extra kilogram can overload the joints. If you have an overweight dog and problems with the musculoskeletal system, it is better to give him food, that will help him lose weight and nourish his joints at the same time. That's what we thought of when compiling the new Calibra VD Joint & Mobility Low Calorie recipe.

For dogs with joint problems, it is of absolute importance to keep them at their optimal weight – more so than with any other medical condition. Every kilogram over their ideal weight has a tendency to overload the joint structure. A vicious circle is created: an orthopedic problem – pain – an unwillingness to move –weight gain – the further worsening of the orthopedic problem.

Calibra has developed a companion diet to its existing Joint & Mobility recipe: Joint & Mobility Low Calorie, which is specifically formulated for obese dogs or those with a tendency towards obesity and who also suffer from joint issues.

A mere 10% decrease in weight can have an overall improvement in the dog’s condition and their willingness to move. Reducing weight is often a precondition for successful orthopedic surgical procedures.

Who should use the Joint & Mobility diet and who should use the Joint & Mobility Low Calorie diet?

Since being overweight/obese is one of the most common causes, as well as consequences of joint problems, it is very important that the goal for dogs suffering from obesity will be achieving optimal weight. Ideal weight depends on a size of a particular breed.

Our new Joint & Mobility Low Calorie recipe is formulated for just this situation. Compared with the original Joint & Mobility recipe, it has:

  • Reduced calorie and fat content
  • Increased content of arctic krill - a very valuable source of Omega 3 unsaturated fatty acids with high biological accessibility and antioxidants
  • High L-carnitine content, which supports fat use/burning
