Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Product - Requires Prescription Our rottweiler had knee replacement surgery earlier this year and our vet switched her to this prescription dog food to help improve joint function and hopefully prolong the time until she needs her other knee replaced. Both the vet and the surgeon recommended this food and approved of the quality and amount of ingredients that actually help with joint movement (as opposed to other brands that don't have adequate ingredients to actually make a difference). I honestly can't say if I've noticed a difference in the pup, but I'm not going to switch to another brand just to find out (she's just as active and playful as ever, so maybe that's the proof?). BEWARE, though, no matter where you purchase this food, you will need to provide prescription information - you can't just buy this off the shelf.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vet quality food and excellent service We buy Hill's JD for our Siberian Husky from our vet in Indianapolis. However, we live in a small mountain town in Colorado during the summer and winter, and sometimes run out. The vet here will order food for us, but they don't stock Hill's. We have had a mix up in the order before, distributor's error. Now we know we can order directly from Chewy and get the food our pup needs. The ordering process was easy, the food came quickly, and the order was accurate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good Both our dogs seem to like the flavor and neither of them had any digestive issues switching to this food. They were on glucosamine/chondroitin tablets and vetprofin for arthritic hips. The vet suggested Hill's J/D to take the place of both of those since she had luck doing the same with her dogs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has great features I have a 14 year old dog with arthritis in her front legs. After using this food, she is like a puppy again. She is happy, she is playful and it warms my heart knowing that this particular food is helping her keep young and has improved her over all health!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love Chewy.com! Everything I have bought from Chewy.com has been great. When I purchased 3 elevated bowls and they were not tall enough, I called to send them back and buy others and they gave me my money back and said for me to donate them to a local shelter, so I have donated them to the Hounds of the Heartland rescue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great prescription Food! This Food is highly recommended from my Vet to feed my older arthritic dog. Chewy was great about following up with the Vet's office to get the prescription filled and the food out to me as quickly as possible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't live without! My dog has been on this food for over 10 yrs. She used to get very stiff and limped a lot. We tried this food and within a week, you could see the difference. I tried over the counter, same brand, appeared to have the same ingredients but within a few days, the limping returned. I went back on the JD and within days, she was back to normal. My dog is now about 14 1/2. She still walks and runs but doesn't chase the rabbits so much. Had to purchase a ramp to get in and out of the truck but still no signs of limping. I have recommended to several people. They all comment on the change for the good in their dog!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Service I made my first purchase from Chewy and it went flawlessly. I had to fax a copy of the prescription needed for my dog's particular food and it was linked to the account I set up within twenty minutes. I was therefore able to submit my order and have the dog food delivered two days later. Aside from the fact that there is a significantly lower price offered by Chewy vs. Petsmart, Chewy's door-to-door service certainly beats driving to the store hoping the food is actually in stock, standing in line to make the purchase, and shlepping the 25 lbs sack back home. I certainly will repeat my purchase with Chewy when I have to replenish the dog food.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed Vet recommended it as he suspected dog had arthritis and he said it might help. My dog had been on grainfree food the whole time i had her before that and it didnt occur to me to check before i ordered. Primary ingredient is Corn and it has created other concerns for me with her digestive system (poop looks less healthy), weight gain and possible impact on prior skin condition just doesnt make the pros outweigh the cons. I can give her supplements that support her joint health.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! My dog almost died due to an allergic reaction to arthritis meds. This is one of the few things we can safely give her. It takes a while to really help, but she has been playing fetch lately which she hasn't done in a while. Auto ship makes my life so much easier since it is a prescription food and I don't just carry it with me at all times. Now I don't have to worry about running out of food and not having the prescription on me so I can restock.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth It! My dog is a very picky eater, but he likes the Hill's Science Diet brand for the most part. Murphy has eaten Hill's Science Diet Mature Adult Active Longevity Original Dry Dog Food for year's, but now that he is 10 years old our vet suggested that we switch to a medicated dog food to help his hips and ease his pain. I was nervous at first, because this dog food does smell a bit like fish oil, but to my surprise, Murphy ate it without any problems and seems to be feeling a little bit better now. This medicated dry dog food is more expensive than regular Science Diet, but I would say it is more than worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product! We have been using this brand of dog food for our little Dachshund Walter at the recommendation of our veterinarian. He absolutely loves it and is always looking forward to it first thing in the morning and in the evening.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Awesome I have been spending money on Hill'd J/D for years. I know that prescription food is expensive but Petsmart has been increasing the price every year. I stumbled on chewy and thank my pocket ever since. They save me a trip and time. THANK YOU!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hill's RX Diet - J/D Joint Care has been amazing in my girl's recovery and maintaining her health When my 7 yr old Golden Girl was diagnosed with a cruciate tear and mild hip dysplasia; my local veterinarian recommended to immediately do surgery with only a 50/50% of success. I found another recommended veterinarian for a 2nd opinion. Dr. Burns recommended "baby steps" and surgery was not necessary at this point; which I was thrilled with. She put her on J/D and meds and it was a total 180 degree turnaround!! She runs around and plays with her puppy friends! She's very happy and my silly girl! She loves her J/D Diet and has always devoured her J/D dinner without hesistation! i credit Hill's RX J/D diet and Dr Burns with returning my happy little girl back to where she was! And yay -- no surgery!!! :-) We definitely swear by Hill's RX J/D Diet and recommend anyone in our situation to give it a try! It'll amaze you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product REALLY works!! I have two dogs - one about 12 years old and the other 8 years old. The younger one had hip dysplasia problems from his early days as a puppy and I had considered surgery to correct it however, that was postponed indefinitely due to weight problem that would have aggravated his recovery. On one visit to the vet, I saw a promotional video that showed a dog before using Hill's j/d and after using Hill's j/d. The difference was so dramatic, I felt it had to be a propaganda video that would not have any merit. My first bag was provided complimentary by the vet. Within the first two weeks, my young pooch showed such a dramatic improvement, I was a confirmed believer in this product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product has made a difference on the quality of my dogs life. This product has made a real difference in my 14 year old lab. Prior to starting on this food, it was very hard for him to walk even short distances. After being on this for several months, he is not so stiff and can actually trot when he sees his dog friends.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too soon to see benefits but will continue Our Chocolate Lab is about 10 lbs overweight and our vet recommended this product. We started a month ago, but he had to have knee surgery (torn ligaments) and has been unable to exercise normally so no weight loss yet. However, his bowel movements are regular and no issues with loose stools like he used to have, so that is a plus. He's not particularly wild about the taste but eventually finishes his meal throughout the morning. Unfortunately, the other knee will have surgery next week so we won't know for awhile how effective the food is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Food :) This food does wonders for my dogs!!! I have a cathoula leopard hound who is 13 yrs old and was struggling to get up and move around. My other dog a lab shepard has been on this for a few years and she couldn't move without it. Sure enough after a few weeks my boy was up and about with much more ease. Make sure to give it time to kick in and after about 3 weeks you will see a difference ~ well worth the money. Thanks Chewy! :)
