On good note my dog liked these chews, however, I do not feel it helped my baby. I have a 7yr old French mastiff 95lb with hip dysplasia and two ruptured cruiciates. I wanted to try out the hemp oil and ha thinking it may be better for her. After a half month giving these chews, I noticed her slowing down on walking and I could hear her hip popping from a distance. I had to go back to what I was giving her where this wasnt an issue. This may be good for other pups, but just not for mine.
My dog is 15 years old with arthritis and pain in her front and back legs with trouble walking recently. She has been a very active dog walking 2-3x (20-30 mins) a day. Concerned my vet only recommend pain pills for my dog; nope not going to do that..so my friend recommended hemp oil pills based on my dogs weight (nurse practitioner) to help. They pills helped and quickly my dog was back to running and playing...so why the switch to this product. I'm a nervous pet owner so I wanted something created for dogs. I added a turmic pill to the mix and off we went slowing transitioning my dog off hemp to this product. My dog seemed okay buy by week three her legs started to collapse, she could get up off the hard wood/tile floors, had trouble walking and couldn't get in the car to go on rides. I knew then the chewable were not helping her and moves back to the hemp pills after slowing removing these from her diet. She's has a lot more energy and is back to rooming the house to sleep in her dog bed on all three floors of the house. Back to smiling and walking 2-3x a day; playing with her toys as a happy smiling girl and back on the road with car rides. Exercise is very important for dogs with arthritis. Maybe these are meant for dogs with early diagnosis (under 10 yrs old) but for my dog it was a disappointing failure. Check out the amazon 3 pack of hemp oil pills a lot cheaper and effective as long as it doesnt cdb oil that's bad and dangerous for dogs. Do your research and alway consult a doctor if possible; many won't recommend hemp oil for liability. Another grip this company sends email with tips on caring for your dog with hip and joint issues...all of the time and its kinds annoying so beware. Going to see if I can unsubscribe.
Loved the orginal Hemp & hips as did my dogs. I am very disappointed with the replacement product. They removed Turmeric & hemp oil were the ingredients bringing me to this product. They replaced turmeric with devils claw root & spirulina. Both of these may have their values but not what I wanted for my dogs. I would also note they didnt like the taste. the only way I could get them to eat it was crumbled in their food. Noticed to this product seems to NOT breakdown in the digestive system like the previous product , which leads me to believe its probably not as effective. I personally will look for another product that meets my dogs needs. it's a shame as the orginal was a much better product.
I found this product to be lacking. My dog has hip and joint problems. We are always trying different supplements to see what will work best for her. This product didn't show much improvement in her injuries compared to other products I have purchased in the past. I found this one was just "okay". There were no major improvements in my dog's mobility, energy levels, and comfort. I would advise purchasing different supplements. If your dog is a picky eater, do not purchase this product. I had a very hard time getting my dog to take her supplements. There are better products on the market.
Seller made me aware the one for smaller breed would be unavailable for awhile,but larger breed could be used just halved. Also gave a discount so I bought. Noted some minor ingredient changes from small breed,but the important ingredients were present. We'll just have to wait and see. Nice customer service though. ******note****** finally got to the end of my small dog's version and went to this and it was a non-starter. He keeps spitting it out.
The flavor in these chews is almost non-existent the other ingredients in this chew overwhelming and there's no flavor my dogs will not eat these I tried others on the market that they love they snubbed their nose at these shoes I have four dogs so I think that my review is more than fair as none of them would eat them
My dog would eat it and he is very picky so I give it 2 stars, but after taking these for a month they have been absolutely no help for him. He is very slow getting up and takes him a few steps get going. The only thing that has worked for him has been Dasuquin Soft Chews for Large Dogs with MSM.
My dog normally eats the Veterinary Naturals Hemp and Hip chews with the turmeric in it. I decided to try these to see how well they work for her. So far, after taking it for over week there has been no effect on her. The other chews with the turmeric definitely work A LOT better. My dog also does not like the taste or smell of these chews. She lives the other ones with the turmeric though. I will be switching back to the other Veterinary Naturals Hemp & Hip chews with the turmeric.
My dog is an 85lb. 11-year-old Labradoodle. He has hip dysplasia and I thought the treats would work for him. Unfortunately, he would not eat them at all. I have tried many times but he turns away after smelling them. If he would have eaten them they may have worked.
