    Evidence-Based Clinical Nutrition:

    Prescription Diet k/d + Mobility Dry Cat Food combines the nutrition of Prescription Diet k/d and j/d. The nutrition of Prescription Diet k/d has been clinically shown to decrease renal-related mortality and uremic crises in cats with CKD.1

    The nutrition of Prescription Diet j/d has been clinically shown to improve ability to jump and decrease joint stiffness in cats with degenerative joint disease.2, 3

    For additional information on the research behind Prescription Diet k/d and j/d please refer to the separate product pages for these products.

     

    Additional Info:

    Prescription Diet k/d + Mobility has increased dietary buffering capacity. This helps counteract the tendency for metabolic acidosis, a common complication as kidney disease progresses.

    Ideal for long-term feeding of cats with kidney disease and degenerative joint disease.

    Dry and canned formulas can be mixed or fed concurrently.
