  • Great for joints AND skin/coat

    By on

    My senior cat started this food a few weeks ago. I’m noticing that she’s already back to jumping a bit more. The biggest improvement has been her skin. Her skin was so bad; it was oily, flakey and her hair looked slimy and greasy. She refused to eat any omega 3 supplements and turned her nose up at skin and coat food. This food has started to manage her stiff joints and began improving her skin almost immediately. I can’t Recommend this food enough and I’m looking forward to even more improvements in Moo’s health.

    My vet recommended this food for my arthritic cat. I was hesitant because it's a large bag. I was concerned that she might not like it and and it's pricey. I mixed it with her wet food and she loves it. In about 1 1/2 weeks I noticed a difference in her pain level. She's running and jumping like she did a few years back. It was worth the $$.

    I order canned food that has always been delivered with many dented cans. This time, things were packed perfectly, and there were no dents! Thank you for taking such good care of my precious cargo! Gina Dowe

  • Hills Feline j/d has really helped my cat

    By on

    My cat has arthritis and won't eat any of the special treats we tried to give him to aid arthritis. We tried the Hill j/d and after a few weeks he was a completely different cat. You wouldn't even know he suffers from arthritis now.

  • good food

    By on

    I have a sweet old cat who was having a hard time hopping up and down onto usual sleep spots. I was concerned that he wouldn't eat this, given change is not something cats seems to enjoy. However, he dove right in, and he now eats this as a first choice over his old food. He does seem a bit more peppy and comfortable hopping both on and off of his favorite (lower) places. Yay!

  • Causes frequent litter box trips!

    By on

    My cats tried this a few times only to be plagued by runny stools. How do I know? Let's just say sometimes they couldn't get to the litter box in time. They don't touch it now and I don't blame them
