My dog was having terrible mobility problems. She would limp and stop during our walks because she wanted to go back to the house. She was on Carprofen and Tramadol, which helped a little but not enough. I was considering stem cell therapy, but it turned out she wasnt eligible. I put her on J/D and the results are better than I had hoped for from the stem cell therapy, and so much cheaper. She love to go on walks now, rarely limps, and she often jog's ahead of me. She is happier and in much less pain. I am so grateful for this product, I would have never guessed a food would make such a difference. She's 15 years old and is still a very happy dog. I do still have her taking the Carprofen and Tramadol..

This food is very expensive for the product you are getting. For 1/2 the price you can get Science diet, but the nutritional information is different (obviously two different products). I've been trying to find out exact information on the product I've been feeding my dog, but only been given the run around by Hill's. Very frustrating. My husband and I are very frustrated and would to like to change the food, but our dog is 11 years old, almost 12, and we don't want to risk his health by switching to Science diet. It's frustrating that on the bag of Hill's J/D it says glucosamine and chondroitin added, but yet it never gives you the amount of glucosamine and chondroitin that is in each serving. Yet, Science diet has the amount listed in the nutritional facts.

      Food definitely helped my dog with joint stiffness. My dog is more mobile.
      My dog doesn't seem to like the dry food on it's own, but when I add canned JD to dry food, she finishes her food quickly.

        My 10 year old dog is like a puppy again!

        By 

        from Lebanon, OH, United States

        If anyone has an older dog who has slowed down due to hip pain I HIGHLY recommend this food. It is fairly expensive, but I have seen a world of difference in my 10 year old large breed dog since he has been on this food. He had gotten to where he was laying around and not even willing to go down the deck stairs to go to the bathroom. We had to let him out the garage. He is now running up and down stairs and jumping around like a puppy again. He has been on this diet for approx. 8 months now. We saw a marked difference in him after being on the food about a month. Amazing!

        We 1st purchased this for our 1 year old Husky/Shepard mix with hip issues, we noticed improvement within a few days. We decided to try this with our other 2 dogs who are 12 and 14 years old, took a little longer to see improvements. Our 12 year old is running around again like he is a puppy! The cost is well worth seeing our older dogs playing again.

          Confusing feeding guide????

          By 

          from Cape Town, South Africa

          On your feeding guide there are pictures of cans and for say a 40 kg dog we need to feed him between 410 to 570 grammes per day, but there is a can with 1 in it and a + so it appears that we should be giving him a can of something plus the pellets.. But further down you expressly state "Feed only this food". Please clarify ASAP.

          She has a spring in her step again!

          By 

          from Jackson, WY

          I started my 9 year old Golden on j/d because she has a great deal of osteoarthritis on both the front and back ends. Within 3-4 weeks of starting on j/d we noticed that she was MUCH spunkier and continues to be today. It is costly however, since you do not need to add joint supplements it evens out and is totally worth it!

          She started having some issues with mobility and after being on the JD for a month or so she is a lot better. I will keep her on this for life. Thanks.

          JD great support for joints and skin

          By 

          from Zionsville PA

          My dog has been on JD since October 2009. She was lame and it helped tremendously without the need to add medications initially. Her coat quality (which was always good ) improved tremendously as well. She loves it and with the wet food as a "treat" she loves it even more! Very pleased and recommend it to clients all the time.

          Great food

          By 

          from Soda Springs, ID 83276, USA

          This food has helped my dog so much. Not only has the omega threes and antioxidants helped my senior pet to get around a little better, it has helped his coat to look amazing. It is wonderful that it is a long term maintenance type food. It is a senior styled diet that surpassed any and all of my expectations. It, like most prescription diets, is not cheap but the food is greatly fomulated and has a good caloric balance making it easy to feed any small to large dog.

          This product is beneficial

          By 

          from Akron, OH

          The j/d dry food has helped our lab, with his arthritis and joint mobility issues. I do feel however, for an 8lb bag, the price is expensive. We will continue to purchase it, because it is helping our dog.
