Hill's® Prescription Diet® j/d® Canine Mobility
Changed my dog's life!
My Golden Retriever, Riley, competes in the sport of Dockdogs and 2 years ago she started slowing down on the dock and showing signs of discomfort after jumping. She absolutely loves competing and lights up at the first sign of water so it broke my heart to see what keeps her spirits high cause her pain. She also stopped jumping up on the bed to sleep at night which also tugged at my heart strings so I had steps built so she could continue to sleep in her favorite spot. She had been on glucosamine supplements for several years and I wasn't ready to take the step to other long-term medications so her vet and I decided to try J/D. WOW! Before I even had the chance to start training her to use the new steps she was back to jumping back on the bed and she started hitting new personal bests while competing! After 2 years the steps are still stored in the basement yet to be used and this year at 10 years old my girl placed 1st at Regional Championships and 4th in the WORLD at the Dockdog World Championships in her division! J/D has changed her life and given us many more years of happiness on the dock!

I have a young, active dog whose joints suffered serious injuries following trauma. It has been 1 year since I started him on j/d and I have noticed significant improvement in his overall mobility. I find that he needs less pain medications too now that he is on j/d. I have recommended this product to many clients who have also seen similar responses. I am very pleased with how well my boy gets around now- he runs on the beach as if he had normal joints!

This kibble works wonders!
I adopted a dog 2 years ago knowing that she would have problems with her back legs. She is only 3. She has had a broken femur, tibia, and pelvis. Since I have had her no broken bones but you can tell that some days is harder then others to move around normally. Since being on the diet, she is a new pup! She has no bad days! On top of it being great for all of her arthritis issues, she loves the food! We would have days where she really didn't want to eat much, but since switching to her J/D, she doesn't miss a kibble! :)

This product has an amazing amount of omega fatty acids!
My dog had to have an amputation due to trauma and so after her recovery I put her on this diet. Not only did it improve her mobility but her hair coat is fantastic. I recommend this diet on a regular basis to my clients.

Great diet for dog with pain on walking
I started my now 10 year old golden retriever on this food three years ago and was amazed to see the improvement in her gait. She had mild changes at that time and has only minimally progressed from there. She loves the food, it sits well with her stomach, and her coat still looks great!

It has worked
My lab has hip dysplasia. Because JD food expensive, we've tried alternating it with other cheaper food every other month. If we keep her on JD, she does well. If we alternate with some other food, she suffers. So, even though it's expensive, it works. We put our pup on regular science diet food as she was having stomach issues. That has worked for her. Thumbs up. Just wish it didn't cost so much.

We can see a huge difference in our dog!
Roz has bone malformations in her hips as well as arthritis in her knees. There was a time when she was barely able to walk. She was taking pain medication and anti-inflamatories. Our vet recommended feeding her the jd prescription dog food. Within a couple of months she was off both medications and walking normally. It has been three years and she is still going strong. There are occassional flare ups and she runs with a different gait, but she is enjoying life and chasing tractors as they go down the road (within the limits of our fence of course). Thank you Hill's Prescription Diet!

Recommended by my vet for my 15 year old Austrailian Shepherd mix. He has been on it for about 6 months & it seems to have helped his arthritis some. He is on anti inflamitories & Adequan injections also. He loves the taste & so does my 5 year old Beagle!

I have been able to get my dog off Tramadol since been on this diet. She is now currently only Metacam.

Great product that seems to help our Golden Retriever's coat.

Great for my Weim!
My Weimaraner "Mollie" was on a different large breed dog food when I started noticing her skin was starting to get dry and flaky. She would have period where the skin on her belly would turn red and smell very bad. While playing ball, she would often yelp and hold up her front legs - I'm assuming soft tissue injuries in her carpels. I changed her diet to JD and haven't looked back. It's been 6 months since the diet change, her skin looks perfect. There are no dry, flaky patches. The red spots are all gone and her coat is shiny and soft. I run ~ 20 miles a week with her with and play ball all the time! She has had no instances of the wrist pain she used to experience while on the other diet. She is happier, she looks extremely healthy and fit and that makes me a happy dog owner :)

My lab mix has been on the J/d for years. She is almost 15 and still runs like a puppy. Her coat is beautiful and she really loves the taste.

Canine Mobility for dog of various ages
Canine Mobility is blended for our 12yr Pointer mix, 7yr Lab mix and 7yr Husky mix. All are high energy pets who beg for their long 3 mile walks in the preserves when we’re off or to go out and throw a ball. They actively chase backyard wildlife and do hour long therapy visits at the nursing home. Over the year weight is consistently maintained, even through the winter snow.

Nutrition makes all the difference!
Only weeks after adopting our dog Monkey, we noticed a significant limp and pain after he was active. I am a veterinary technician and the veterinarian initially prescribed multiple medications to help deal with pain and inflammation. The medications helped to a certain extent, but the limping continued. Then I began working at another clinic that had a strong relationship with Hill's and their diets. The veterinarian suggested putting Monkey on Hill's j/d diet and seeing how he did. He loved the food and within a matter of weeks we had not only discontinued the medications, but Monkey showed no signs of limping, even after a long active day.
Monkey has been on j/d ever since (about 6 years!) and I know it has significantly extended not only the length, but the quality of his life too. We are constantly complimented on how soft and shiny his fur is, too, no doubt a side effect of all those good Omega-3's!
As a vet tech I'm constantly telling clients about the benefits of j/d and what it can do for the quality of their pet's life.

I began my husky mix on this at a young age. Not being sure of his genial background, I wanted to ensure he would not suffer from arthritic hips as he got older. So far, so good. He is 8 years old and acts like a newborn puppy! In my heart of hearts, I truly believe that I owe this all to your dog food! Keep up the great work and thanks for making the lives of our babies better with your terrific food! Kim & "Bruno"

I was devesatated to learn my 3 year old female west highland terrier was suffering arthritis in both back legs, at about 2 and a half yrs she went from being a very happy playful dog to one that just slept and no longer wanted to play with her very active brother, I always put this down to her charachter and just changing from a puppy to an adult dog. Then One day we brought her on a long walk and on returning she seemed almost unable to hold up her back legs, we took her to the vet that week thinking she had injured herself, she had an x-ray and it was confirmed. i couldnt believe she could have arthritis at such a young age, now six weeks on this product and i cant believe the difference in her, she is back to her old playful self. I couldnt be happiier with this product, it is expensive but so worth it!

I can tell a difference!
My dog is a very active 6 year old Labrador and once I started her on j/d I could tell a difference right away. She was not near as stiff and sore in the morning after an afternoon of hunting as she was before we started her on j/d. And an added benefit is how shiny and healthy her coat looks! She will be on this diet for life.

Makes her a puppy again
A year ago, my 5 year old girl was hobbling around on three legs, suffering from a partially torn acl with hip dysplasia 6 months after having her other acl repaired. Her pain and discomfort seemed never ending and we wanted not only to get her health in control but also to provide prevention for additional issues in the future. We were given the recommendation to start j/d as part of Precious' daily routine. We use the diet along with other medications to assist with her managing her arthritis and the prevention of new injuries. I work for a vet and I recommend this diet to clients daily because I know that for over the last year we have seen vast improvements in her health, comfort and mobility. It was also much easier to manage her weight on the food rather than when we had been using OTC foods.

great product for joint disorders
Our golden retriever was diagnosed with severe hip dysplasia while under anesthesia when she was spayed at 11 months old. The vet recommended Hill's J/D food for her. She is now 8 years old and it is the only diet that she has had. There is no sign of arthritis or any discomfort and she still acts like a puppy. It is available by vet prescription only and is expensive but I recommend it for any dog with possible joint disorders.

We have been using j/d Canine Mobility for several years now and have seen great improvement in our 14year old Weimer!
Our 14year old Weimer has been on j/d Canine Mobility for several years now and we began seeing signs of her old playful puppy self after the first bag. She is interacting with her play friends now instead of just watching them play. She is able to get up and down with ease and no longer needs help! Great product! Thanks for helping us keep our Weimer healthy and happy!

My dog was on an nsaid tablet once a day and pain tablet twice a day for joint pain. I started feeding Hill's j/d 2 months ago and now I only have to use the nsaid as needed which is only periodically if he's had a strenuous workout, even then sometimes my dog doesn't need it. Feeding Hill's j/d has saved me a significant amount of money due to the fact that I no longer have to buy a bottle of nsaids from my veterinarian monthly.

I wish we would have known about his hip displaysa sooner so we could have started him on this food many years earlier.
July 3, 2014
Hopefully product will help our dog.
We have only been using the dry food for a couple of weeks.
Hopefully, it will help our border collie to have better
mobility. We are looking forward to seeing our border collie getting up for sitting and lying position a lot easier.

Good product with 'bonus' feature!
My vet recommended this food when my Doberman started with joint issues. I have noticed the joint disease being 'slowed down' by this food and the kibbles are a good size for him as he has dental trouble as well. We soak the food prior to him eating it to soften the kibble as they are quite hard. The fish oil present in the food greatly helps our dog and an added bonus is that as soon as he started eating the j/d, his stools became firmer and his flatulence decreased by about 95%!

Giant breed dog on J/D
We have a seven and a half year old, 160 pound Newfoundland. His breed, size and age make him prone to joint problems. He has shown signs of joint pain over the last few years, and although supplements and medication helped, the only lasting difference has come from being on J/D for the last year. On top of the excellent joint benefits, his ears and skin have improved as well.

I AM SO GLAD TO HAVE FOUND J/D
HER NAME IS STELLA. IT WAS LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT. I WAS SPEAKING WITH STELLAS PREVIOUS OWNERS ABOUT HER HISTORY ETC. SHE IS AN OVERWEIGHT 9 YEAR OLD CAVALIER KING CHARLES SPANIEL WITH A CATERACT IN ONE EYE AND DEAF. I DIDNT CARE SHE IS AN AMAZING DOG. HMMMM I THOUGHT TO MY SELF HOW AM I GOING TO GET THIS WEIGHT OFF? SHE DOESNT ENJOY COMING DOWN OR GOING UP STAIRS. I DID RESEARCH AND WITH THE HELP OF MY VETERINARIAN WE CAME UP WITH A DIET PLAN OF J/D........................TODAY SHE IS BOUNDING UP AND DOWN THE STAIRS. ON WALKS SHE ISNT HUFFING AND PUFFING LIKE BEFORE. SHE KEEPS UP WITH MY 4 YEAR OLD COCKER SPANIEL. I HAVE ONLY HAD MY STELLA FOR ABOUT A MONTH BUT THROUGH THIS JOURNEY IT FEELS LIKE I HAVE ALWAYS HAD HER SINCE A PUP. I CANT BEGIN TO THANK YOU ENOUGH FOR MAKING MY STELLA WHOLE AGAIN.

Good results, a little pricey.
I've had good results with my aging black lab. Because of the cost, when she was a little younger and still active in the field I just fed it during the hunting season and this seemed to work fine. Now that she has aged more she has problems at all times of the year. It seems her quality of life seems to be improved by this food. There are coupons available, but not enough to cover every time a bag needs to be purchased.

improvement in mobility
I have been using Prescription j/d for my 12 year old Staffordshire Terrier for about 4 months and have noticed improvement in his mobility.
June 19, 2014
definately helps my dog
This is my second time around with this product. It has really helped my two dogs with mobility. I do think it is expensive and really hurts my budget...however I love my dogs so I buy it. I would have given it 5 stars if it used more organic ingredients.
June 13, 2014
It seems to be helping!!! My dog enjoys the taste and always eats all of her meal.
