Individually wrapped, hard to cut in half
The product itself is fine but trying to get the wrappers off each individual chew is impossible and a huge waste. Can't cut in half, as instructed, for smaller dogs. Disappointed!

Odd texture and dogs didn;t like it
This is an odd texture like Starburst. I was thrown off by the texture and was not sure how great it would be for their teeth.

Regardless of the texture, my dogs didn't like them and wouldn't eat them.

The product itself is fine but trying to get the wrappers off each individual chew is a huge pain. It helps if you put them in the microwave for a few seconds first.

I would not suggest this product. First, each chew is individually wrapped. Second, the dog spit out the chew every time. Third, within 2 months, the chews were hard and the dog refused to eat them. Considering the money to purchase, the time to unwrap each one, the extra treats we gave so the dog would eat it....and then to throw half the bag in the garbage. Very disappointing.

Good option
TIP: These are not like your standard chewy dog treats, but are individually wrapped rectangular pieces that resemble caramel candies. If your dog has trouble chewing them, try flattening them with your fingers first. (That works for my dogs!)

I got these because one of my two dogs refused the chewable tablets. I considered the ones that are more like regular dog treats, but I didn't want to spend the extra money on them (they're much more expensive for some reason) not knowing if both my dogs will even like them. Luckily, they will both eat these. I think it's a decent price considering what they do. I pay around the same amount or more for my own human joint care supplements.

Another reviewer said they smell bad and yeah, they're not great, but these beef flavored ones smell significantly better than the sizzling bacon ones, in my opinion.

Most importantly, they do seem to help with the joint issues one of my dogs has been having (my other one hasn't been having any noticeable issues, but it was recommended we give her a joint supplement because she is a tripod dog and is getting to the age when she'll likely have issues.)

Great product!
I purchased this Hip & Joint formula chews for my older dog that has arthritis and a mobility issue. I wasn't sure if this would help, but it really does work! She has really improved and it has made a huge difference. I would definitely recommend this product!

Note: Just like any other product, make sure you are consistent giving it to your dog every day.

outstanding product
During a recent road trip my 10 year old husky mix Baluka started having a hard time getting up from a laying position and limping. Not sure if it was the hours of laying in the car or the day he spent in the metal kennel at Disneyland. My wife purchased this product and another gnc product for senior dogs. At first he didn't want to eat these and we had to hold his moth closed until he chewed and swallowed it,but now he eats it without problem and now after a few weeks he is not limping or having trouble getting up anymore.

Excellent product!!
I have a 7 year old Labradoodle with hip dysplasia. These chews have made a very noticable difference in his mobility and comfort. He loves the taste of them (and he's a picky eater) and begs for his daily "hip treats". Small dogs may have difficulty chewing them, but medium or large dogs have no problems gobbling them down.

The package instructions say to give a dog over 50 lbs 2 soft chews (Ultra Mega Hip & Joint Health for All Dogs). Is it safe to give him 2 chews at once, or do I need to give him one in the morning and one at night?
A shopper on Jan 15, 2013
BEST ANSWER: It is safe to give them both at one time. No need to split them up unless the dog likes them, then it might be nice to have two instances to treat them.
My girl dog is highly allergic shellfish will it hurt her?

A shopper on Dec 29, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it may. With diabetes or with known allergies to shellfish, this product should be given to your dog only with the recommendation of a veterinarian.
We have two yorkies one is 7 and the other is 5, They both have back leg issues. They were put on previcox and my 5 year old almost died. I would like to start my dogs on this product. their weight between both one is 15lbs. and the other 16lbs. Would this does you have be too high. As the capsules my Vet gave of us the Cosequin (the glucosamine was250mg and the chondroitin was 200mg. They won't take the capsules no matter what i try. sprinkling on food on in the pockets. Just inquiring if the dosage would hurt them. Thank you Rose Stearns.
A shopper on May 29, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Based on the recommended doses this wouldn't be too much for either of your pets. If you have concerns and want to stay inline with the does your vet prescribed you could just give them 1/2 a chew instead of a whole one.
