Animal Nutrigenomics is a relatively new field that explores the interplay between genetic make-up and how the nutrients found in certain foods can assist in the prevention of specific animal diseases. The application of nutrigenomics allows scientists to gain a better understanding of genetic disease.
To date, approximately 450 canine genetic diseases have been identified, which vary according to breed. Nutrigenomics has great potential to improve not only the health of our pets but also our own well-being, from disease prevention to, in some cases, prolonging your animal’s life expectancy.
Hill's® Pet Nutrition Inc. has for the first time utilized the theory of nutrigenomics, along with clinical studies on the product, to develop new Prescription Diet® Canine j/d™. This unique food contains eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), an omega-3 fatty acid found in high concentrations in fish oil that has been demonstrated to alter the action of a degenerative enzyme that causes cartilage degradation.

Animal Heartworms can be deadly, yet they are very easy to prevent in your dog or cat. With all of the veterinary resources available to prevent this disease, no pet should ever contract it.
Signs of heartworm include coughing, fainting, fatigue, and difficulty breathing. Animals may have heartworm for several years before showing any sign of the disease, and when signs finally occur, the heart and pulmonary arteries are often so full of worms that heartworm treatment becomes very risky.
Only animal heartworm products purchased from veterinarian clinics are backed by the manufacturers’ guarantees.
