If your cat has a joint disease, Royal Canin Feline Veterinary - Mobility offers delicious kibble and helps promote healthy joints. To help alleviate the symptoms of joint diseases, this food has been formulated with nutrients from New Zealand green-lipped mussel extracts and long-chain fatty acids EPA and DHA, which can also lessen any inflammations in the joints. A special antioxidant complex also offers protection against free radicals.
