Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 97 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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. October 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great! So happy! I can tell a big difference in my dog's mobility! November 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has improved our dacshound's hips and joints dramatically. He no longer cries when he goes up and down stairs. Awesome product. Our dacshound's no longer cries going up or down stairs. Acts like a puppy and he is 9 years old. October 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. August 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. August 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! Cheaper than going to the store and much easier to have it delivered. September 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this product and so does our baby!! We love the convenience and quality of service that Chewy.com offers us! Thank you from very happy customers! :) August 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! September 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Same great quality and timely delivery I was very surprised how easy this it was to set up to deliver every 6 weeks and a great price. I am very pleased with chewy.com as are my pups! August 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy and convenient This is the only dog food my pet should eat and chewy makes it easy and convenient to purchase! July 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog has a better quality of life. I was skeptical about the ability of this food but was pleasantly surprised in the difference it made. July 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product Great customer service with great discounts offering a great product! July 7, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. May 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Impressed with the quick delivery of the dog foor. This was the first time I ordered Hills Prescription Diet from Chewy. First of all, I was impressed with the quick delivery and the packing of the food. I now found a new store to buy all my dog's food. Thank you for the great service. June 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Time Saver My dogs on a prescription diet so keeping up on dog food meant driving to the vet during vet hours (limited & inconvient) and lugging a huge bag of heavy expensive food home. Having good delivered at a great price was a huge help . if my dog didn't pass away ID still be using it. Luckily they let you cancel with one click, no questions asked April 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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!! July 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Did wonders for my dogs. This food was a great help for my arthritic dogs. I noticed a difference in their range of motion and movements within a week of switching to this food. May 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing results in less than two weeks I have a Shepherd mix mutt rescue who has had some joint issues pretty much in all four legs. He got to a point of serious "head-bob" walking 24/7 so we took him to the vet (again), who said that there was no (expensive) surgery to fix things and that we should consider acupuncture or the J/D diet. We said we'd start with the J/D diet and in LESS THAN TWO WEEKS the limp entirely disappeared. We are thrilled with the results and are grateful for our guy to feel so much better! January 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by We've noticed significant improvement When our vet suggested prescription food for our 12 year old Boxer, I was skeptical; however, I figured it couldn't hurt to try it. Well, Thai food is well worth the cost! We have noticed a significant improvement in her agility and movement. She now uses the stairs multiple times a day, whereas in the past she will avoid them. She is still an arthritic 12 year old Boxer, but her quality of life definitely seems improved. We highly recommend this product and will continue to use it. January 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by JD Prescription Dog Food The only food we have found that helps our older, arthritic lab to be comfortable and more mobile. Bonus is a beautiful, shiny coat! April 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My dog likes this food, which is important because he needs it. If your dog has hip and joint issues, this food is excellent. He has already lost some weight after 2 weeks and likes the food April 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Science diet JD dog food I was concerned my dog would not like this food as he is pretty picky. However, to my great pleasure he really likes it. April 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent product The food was recommended by my vet for my young lab whose elbow did not grow together as a fetus. He explained that the nutrient in the food could not be duplicated by administering supplements. I also put my 10 year old golden on it as she was exhibiting some difficulty getting up from time to time. My golden acts like a young dog again and I haven't seen my lab limp since he has been on it. I feel I am giving the very best to my best friends. Chewy has a great price and wonderful service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 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! June 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Significant Results! I have a 13 year old Springer Spaniel. I was having to carry her up the stairs due to arthritis, etc. My vet's receptionist told me to try Hillside Prescription Diet. She said it's pricey, but after I see the results I will want to buy it again. Maggie now walks upstairs by herself, is more active and acts more like a younger dog! It tells me something about human's nutrition as well. January 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good product We have fed this food to our senior dogs for a few years, and it seems to work together with herbal medications. March 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Helper My dog is doing much better. You were recommended to me by a veterinarian. March 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by good company to deal with Dr recommended this food for my husky that had arthritis and seems to be helping. Giving him less medication with this food. March 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by No need for extra meds and chewy is awesome My 11 year old dog has had arthritis his entire life. I always gave him Science Diet, but when his symptoms started becoming more noticeable in older age my vet recommended JD as an alternative or supplement to pain killers. My dog, and my friend's dog each have a significant different in their mobility. Also, Chewy.com is a lifesaver. They are more affordable, and they automatically deliver to my house. January 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Product for joint issues Dog has been on product for 6 months; I think it has reduced his joint pain. Price was lower at Chewy by 10.00 compared to my Vet's price. Shipping was free because it was over 49.00. March 8, 2016
