This food is made in the USA.

Hard to close bag

The new bag is very hard to close.The old bags were easy to reseal.I might be looking for a different brand.As much as it costs, you would think they would have an easy to seal bag.

My Maizee girl does NOT like this food. I’ve put cheese in the bowl. I’ve put pumpkin in the bowl and she eats the pumpkin around the kibble and spits out the kibble.

Great product, bad packaging

This dog food has been very helpful for our border collie's hip issues. We've been using it a couple of years and love it. But they've recently changed the packaging. It used to have a great zip-lock type closer that was airtight and kept the product fresh. Now they switched to a cheap velcro-like thing that doesn't work at all. This can not be good for their public image, and I can't understand why they would make such a bad decision. I'm still giving the review four stars because the product itself seems to still be top notch, but I would definitely have given five had it not been for the terrible packaging change.

Pricey food

I tried this food for my soon to be 12 year old standard poodle who is having a harder time standing up. It was quite pricey but I was hopeful that it would help. She doesnt really want to eat it and I cant say if Ive seen a difference or not.

Worked better than I imagined

I was skeptical when I first read the reviews about the amazing results people's dogs had. I tempered my expectations and had my, at the time, 10 year old border collie try it. The j/d did work miracles. She had been getting stiff, stopped jumping in the car, and was slowing down. After around 3 weeks of using j/d we noticed the stiffness went away and she was more active. After a little more time she could jump in the car and was like her younger self again! She is 13 now and while she's starting to slow down again, she still jumps in the car and is less stiff than she was before we started using j/d. We just took her to her annual vet appointment and as usual, the vet was so impressed with her health and stated that she seems like a much younger dog than she is. This food is worth the money and really can work magic on your dog, no tempering of expectations needed.

Science Diet

Don’t recommend. My dog doesn’t like it & now I regret buying it. It’s very pricey for her not to like it.
