  • Worth the money

    By on

    My 11 year old beagle has had a really hard time getting around. My vet gave me a few choices of things that could help my girl. I decided that rather than giving drugs we would try the new food. Just opening the bag Angie decided she wanted to try the new food, her face was in the bag before I could get the measuring cup. Within a week I noticed a difference in her movement. 3 weeks on the food now and she has no problem walking 3 miles with our other dogs. I’m so impressed with this food I’m giving to all of my dogs!

    Super easy purchase, thank you! Gave chewy.com information and they ran with! It is most excellent to have 27lbs of dog delivered to the house! It saved me from lifting the bag in & out of the car multiple times. Great transaction!

    The joint food is good for my friend who has arthritis in his hind knee and can't have surgery because his other hind leg had to be amputated. Chewy's has the best price

  • Very Picky Husky LOVES it

    By on

    My 12 year old Siberian Husky has been eating this for about a year. She is sooo picky about what she eats, even smells a piece of steak before she eats it, but she instantly liked this food. I got it because she wouldn't eat the glucosomine chews for her arthritis. Now she's running around like she did when she was 5. She also gained a healthy amount of weight (she was under weight before), probably because she likes it and is actually eating the amount she should be eating every day. And her coat is soft and shiny now. Very spendy, but worth it for my girl to feel good.

  • Hips are so much better!

    By on

    Our 8 year old Border Collie mix has severe hip dysplasia and some arthritis in her shoulders. You wouldn’t know it to watch her chase a ball! I could tell a difference after about a week on the j/d diet. She used to take tiny, shorter steps when her hips were particularly painful. Her gait is longer now. She’s able to go on longer walks as well.

  • Barney loves the food

    By on

    After being put on this particular prescription dog food, we researched the least expensive means of purchasing and found Chewy. On line ordering was easy, even with a prescription. Because this was our first order we received a discount and are now set up for automatic renewals. The convenience can’t be beat. Barney, our three-year-old lab Mix loves the food and chows down like it’s the best meal in town.

    I give my big pup this dry food along with the canned dog food and she is beginning to like it better. It is almost too small for her but I say that and she can eat the tiniest dog treat with no problem. I think it just has taken her about a month to get used to it. She is feeling great though.

  • Helps with joint problems

    By on

    At 9 1/2 years old, my dog was having trouble climbing stairs. I started her on the Hill's Joint Care food and it seems to have helped her out. She is now more active and has less pain climbing stairs. It is nice that Chewy provides me the food delivered to my door on a periodic basis.
