Customer Reviews

Hill's Prescription Diet j/d Small Bites Chicken Flavor Dry Dog Food is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy and hopeful My 10 yr old Chihuahua was diagnosed with arthritis. Our Vet put him on Hills small bites J/D. My dog has only been on it for 1 1/2 weeks but so far so good. My dog actually seems to be getting around much better. I am sure in the next few weeks he will be doing even better than he is now. Chewy has been great, easy to order from and they did all the work on their end contacting my vet vs. me having to send them a prescription. Highly recommend both Chewy and the Hills J/D for your pet if they have some joint issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Chihuahua loves it My Vet recommended this low sodium food. At first we had the bigger Kibbles. My Chihuahua had problems to chew the big Kibbles. We switched to the small Kibbles. She just loves it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Kiwi seems to like the food better than his old food. Can't tell if it will help his joints yet, too soon. So far I am fully satisfied with the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from JD 4 Mobility My little dog Henry (min pin) is two years old and when he was a year, he started limping a lot so when I took him to his vet, he sent us to see an Orthopedic Vet and found out he has a hip problem that was with him before I adopted him. He will need surgery, but in the meantime he put him on Prescription JD for mobility and it has been over a year since he has been on the JD and he is running, jumping (as high as I let him) with no pain. He gets x-rays 2s a year and the last one shows his hip has deteriorated 1 percent since his first one, so I’m praying this JD will keep him going 1 more year till 2016 when he will have the surgery and I will be retired to be home with him 24/7. I recommend this if your little friend is having mobility problems have your vet write a prescription. This does come in regular bits, but for small does I recommend small bits.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product has helped my older dog move more freely. This pet food was recommended by my vet and I couldn't find it conveniently in my location. Using the Hill's j/d diet not only helps my dog, but costs less than the Rx for the same ingredients.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My chihuahua can run and jump again He was only 5 but suddenly could hardly walk. His back knees kept dislocating. My vet prescribed this with the caution if it didn't work he would need surgery. After about 2 months he was back to normal. No problems at all. It has been over a year and his is till fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the convenience Not having to lug heavy bags or boxes is a plus. The only problem is that I unknowingly purchased a different bite size than I buy for my pup. This makes returning a hassle. Otherwise, I like everything coming right to my front door; and auto ship makes it that much easier. And saving money is always a plus! Will just have to call and make sure the correct bite size comes in the future. Highly recommend!
