Rated 5 out of 5 by Animallover1 Helps with his arthritis
This product is very thick much like peanut butter. Being a first time buyer I did not know I had to dilute first to make smoother to consume. What happened was it got stuck on the roof of my dog's mouth. He kept rolling his face down on the floor while frantically trying to remove with his paw while gagging. We had to scrap it off the roof of his mouth. Once I diluted it he can now eat with no problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ToniB Great stuff!
I have just begun to use the JD for my 13 year old arthritic Lab. He is so young at heart. He is once again rolling in the grass with legs flying everywhere. It brings tears to my eyes to see him more active again. As for the folks at Chewy.com, you can't find anyone more caring. Thanks for being there!

Rated 5 out of 5 by dogsbody Big improvement in my dog's mobility
We noticed a big improvement in our dogs mobility a week or so after starting this food. (He has arthritis in his back legs & hips.) We had previously been giving him dasequin (not sure of spelling) and omega 3 supplements supplied by the vet, because we did not initially want to change his food. But the vet said this would work better than the supplements, & she was correct. We had been feeding him the dry J/D, but use the wet food in addition because now we have to hide a med in it. Make a great doggie "meatball". ;-)
Highly recommend-but you will need a prescription.

This canned food is so much better than what I get at the vet's office which was very dry. Maybe this food is better because is has lamb in it. My dog loves it !

Rated 5 out of 5 by uvlaw Vet Recommended, Really Helps
We have a 5 year old Llewlyn (English) Setter, who is very active and runs like the wind, but recently started pulling up lame, and started having trouble getting up. We took her to a major vet school, and a vet who is an expert in canine arthritis, and a well known veternary surgeon.
He diagnosed our dog with severe hip dysplasia and/or hip arthritis. Eventually he wants to replace her hip, but for now he recommended the Hill's J/D prescription dog food, which he says contains a large content of fish oil, which is rich in omega fatty acids, and which he said cuts back on inflammation which is big part of arthritis.
He seems to have been right. We've been feeding our Setter the Hill's j/d for a couple of months now, and she really seems to be moving better, and in less pain. It really seems to have helped.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Putzee With medication, helps mobility
Vet prescribed this diet to supplement meds and it seems to be really helping our 12+ year old 100-pound Black Lab rescue son - feeding this twice daily, along with the Hills j/d Canine Mobility Original Bites Dry Dog Food has been made much easier by the Chewy.com auto refill free delivery, which brings it right to the door. Thanks!
