Default Hills J/D Prescription diet

The specialist who operated on Em's elbow has recommended this food, as an arthritis control diet.

Has anybody used this and if so, what do you think of it? At the moment Em has glucosamine and cod liver oil added to her food.

Here's some info I copied from the internet.

Ground maize,ground rice,flaxseed,chicken and turkey meal,soybean mill run,soybean meal,animal fat, digest,fish oil,dried whole egg,potassium chloride,L-carnitine,salt,calcium carbonate, taurine,dicalcium phosphate,L-tryptophan,L-lysine hydrochloride,vitamins and trace elements.Naturally preserved with mixed tocopherols,citric acid and rosemary extract.
Hill`s Prescription Diet J/D is an innovative food that helps ease aching joints and improves quality of life in as little as 21 days.

Its unique formula contains high levels of EPA (Eicosapentanoic Acid), an omega-3 fatty acid found in high concentrations in fish oil. Research has shown that EPA can help maintain joint function. Natural glucosamine and chondroitin provide the building blocks of healthy cartilage, and L-carnitine, helps maintain optimum body weight. Canine j/d improves the quality of life by helping dogs run better, play better, and rise more easily.
