    Big improvement in my Neemo

    By Neemo on Feb 8, 2021

    My 8 yr old Husky/Shepard started getting easily injured in his left hip and this was recommended to me by a friend. There's been a HUGE improvement and he actually likes the taste. I give him only one tablet once a day and it's working for him.

    Not a favorite of my dog.

    By Olga on Jul 3, 2019

    The tablets have a strong smell of rosemary and for that or some other reason unfortunately our dog do not particularly likes them. He is a large German Shepherd dog and has a very good appetite and not very picky eater though.

    Hip & Joints

    By Featherhead91 on Jan 17, 2019

    The best way I've been able to give my dogs chews like this is dip it in grease they loved that, I've noticed this stuff has been helping my dog and I've been giving it to him for a couple weeks now.

    Hip and joint

    By Chloe on Jun 29, 2018

    My dogs(2) will not touch this stuff. I thought it was pills as shown in picture which I could pop down their throat. It was Wafer shape...way too big. They won’t eat it even when I try to hide it in something else

    Not a hit at our house

    By KCard on Jun 5, 2018

    Unfortunately, our dogs didn’t care at all for the taste of these tablets. Why can’t they make them in chicken or beef flavors like dog biscuits?

    Good product, damaged in shipping

    By LHil on Oct 17, 2017

    The product works well for my 12 year old dog, we have been using it for a Couple weeks so far. The only issue I have is that the actual tablets themselves in the bottle were broken and crumbly. There are some that are whole so, I started with that and then will just sprinkle or put the rest in his food. I think the manufacturer needs to put more cotton in the bottle to stop movement and breakage.

    Hip+Joint Natural Formula

    By Donna on Jul 16, 2017

    My little dog is moving better and feeling better than he has in a while. I am so happy for him! I am giving him 1 tablet per day and smashing it up in a little yogurt because the tablet is very large. Excellent product!
