  • 8 year old little Poodle mix

    By on

    My little Remy jumped out of my arms when he was about 7 weeks old. Over the years I notice sometimes he had a limp in that right hip. Vet offer surgery but I have not had good experience with joint surgery in other dogs. I found this j/d Hills and it has all the supplements I was giving him to help his discomfort with the arthritis. It has been 2 months now and I see an improvement in him, so I will keep him on it.

  • It works, and Chewy has it

    By on

    I'm a 16-yr-old rat terrier, and I need this joint-support stuff to keep my knee from popping and my other joints from wearing out. Just as the package claims, after eating this food for a couple of weeks I was able to move more easily. After eating it for a couple of years, I can run like a deer (once I warm up). But then the vet couldn't keep the small bites in stock (the regular sized bites are a little tough on my remaining teeth), but Chewy came through! I'm a regular customer now, and plan to be for the rest of my life.

    Cooper is our geriatric border-lab mix, and he loves the Hill's j/d. He also needs it for his arthritis The service from Chewy.com is absolutely the best. We had just about run out, and they made extra efforts to make sure we got the resupply just in time. We are loyal customers for life!

  • Product works well

    By on

    We started using this food last October . It took about a month and a half and my dog does not limp anymore. He cannot run as he did when he was young but seems much more comfortable on a 1 mile walk . He is a 12 year old Sheltie. I now cut it with another food that is less expensive and he likes the flavor better.

  • Running like a pup

    By on

    I was recommended this food by vet for 9 yo Boston Terrier. We obtained him from previous owner who had fell ill and could no longer care for him. He was limping often and needed help getting in/out of high places. I started feeding him Hill's Joint Care and within 2 weeks he was running, jumping and playing like a pup!

  • Joint pain

    Our pug loves the food and hopefully it will be beneficial to his joint difficulties. We will see how he progresses as it will take some time to see results.

  • Happy and hopeful

    By on

    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.
