Unfortunately the first food vets prescribe is always Hills, it costs a fortune and there are many foods out there that are just as good and are holistic.
Jack has OA in is Elbow and Maia has HD and we have them on a food that contains Glucosamine and Chondrotin, similar to Hills but not as expensive. We also supplement with Cod Liver Oil capsules and they wear magnetic collars, the combo seem to have worked!
Its called Fromme food and the Fromme Adult Gold is the one with G&C, it also contain pre and pro biotics, is not tested on animals cruelly (unlike Hills) and is made from Organic meats and veggies.
