I was recommended to use this food by my vet as I have always struggled to keep my Labrador's weight down. She has a thyroid condition and arthritis so it is really important to keep her slim! Never an easy task with a walking dustbin!!
This works for us.

Hills Mobility for small dogs.

Ruth Copeman

  • VioVet customer since 2020
  • From: Norfolk, United Kingdom

My vet recommended Hills Mobility for my dog who weighs 5.5 kg. He said to find one for small dogs but I can’t find anything relating to the size/weight of the dog. Is there only one standard Mobility available or can you buy specifically for small dogs? Thank you.

  • VioVet Staff

There is only one size of Hills J/D Mobility diet and it is suitable for dogs of all sizes. So yes, this one is good for your 5.5kg dog.

Do I need more than one type of food?

Helen L

I have a rottweiler x, age 8 and a shitszu x, age 13, both have arthritis, the 13yr old has it worse, degenerative joint disease/osteoarthritis...both have been on mature food and have been fine with it, but both recently being diagnosed, I was advised that they also need a joint support as well as a senior/mature food, ...Is there one JD food that caters for this?? Or do I need to get two separate foods?? Please could you advise the best food that would cater for both their needs please?
Thank you

  • VioVet Staff

The usual solution would be to stay with the same senior diet they are on already, but add a joint supplement to it every day. This seems to be very safe and effective. Examples of joint supplements would be our Joint Force or Yumove, but there are many others on the website to look at. They are all fully compatible with senior profile foods. As an alternative you could just go onto j/d diet which has a reasonably senior profile and some ingredients designed to help the joints. The first approach seems more comprehensive though.

Mobility or j/d

mr i jones

My dog has hip dysplasia is being fed hills healthy mobility which i add glucosamine with hexaden powder capsules in morning meal and half a fish oil capsule in its evening meal. Would you recommend changing to j/d or keeping with mobility.

  • VioVet Staff

Both diets are very similar, but j/d is a slight step up from Healthy Mobility. I would say that if your dog seems to be doing well and the dysplasia is not severe and has not caused significant arthritic symptoms, then stay with Healthy Mobility. If however things get, or have become worse, then Hills j/d would be the right diet to choose.

Which food would be best?


Hi. We have a 6 yr old male labrador who 2 weeks ago had an op on his right front elbow for Fragmented ?????? Process. I would say he is quite small framed & 30kg, both the orthopedic & my usual vets have said it would help him if he lost a couple of kilos. He's an active dog although confined at present. The vet has told me to gradually swap his food to either Royal Canin Mobility Support or Hills joint Diet. I noticed the Hills brand does a reduced calorie variety. Strange for a labrador he is a fussy eater of his current Wainrights 25% less fat dry food.
Which would you recommend for him out of the Royal Canin and Hills please? If Hill's should the reduced calorie variety be better?

  • VioVet Staff

I would recommend the Hills Reduced Calorie j/d diet.

If you will forgive me for saying so, I think you are too generous with the amount of food you give your dog. Even a Labrador will be fussy if you always offer plenty of food. You could make your dog the opposite of fussy by giving much less food, so that he always runs out and has to wait until the next meal to be able to eat. If there is ever any food left over after a few minutes, it is simply that you have offered too much. You should take it away, then offer about half that amount next time. In time you can judge the amount to give, but he should always appear hungry, or you are over-feeding him. No overweight dog will actually lose weight on any of the modern commercial foods if you offer as much as they want to eat. It is vital that they run out of food and need to wait until the next meal before they can eat. Many people are too kind-hearted to be able to do this to their dogs, hence many dogs are overweight. It is in your hands though...

Will the JD diet help my dog ?


Hi there i have an 18 month old pug x shihtzu .He has bowed legs as a result of a bad breeder(we didnt know this when i got him). The vets have recomended to just excersize him and keep his weight down. He runs about chasing his ball ect but iv noticed after his run around the park he is just laying there not wanting to get up and walk home as i think his joints must be a bit sore , we have cut the excersize down but i wondered if your JD diet would help my dog in anyway ?
I hope to hear from you soon

  • VioVet Staff

Hills j/d dog food is designed to help exactly your sort of dog. It is high in the nutrients which are needed to keep joints healthy, as well as helping to keep your dog in good general health and slightly less likely to put on excess weight. You still need to manage your dog sensibly in other ways. Regular, gentle exercise will help him. However any prolonged or strenuous exercise will tend to damage them slightly. This damage builds up over the years and tends to result in arthritis. It is difficult to tell to what extent your dog might be affected, but putting the dampers slightly on the exercise is probably sensible. He should still enjoy his walks, but do not overdo it. It is also important to not let him get overweight. Being slightly lean throughout life will make life easier for his joints. I would certainly recommend Hills j/d too.
