Great Product. Pup Loves Em
My pup loves the tabs. I also have notice an increase in his hip flexibility as he walks. No more limp. Will buy again
SHE LOVEEES IT! It’s a Winner!
I was skeptical when I opened the container and got a wiff of the supplements LOL. I didn’t think she would touch them. BUT she loves them! I give her 3 treats with her morning breakfast and they are gone in seconds. (AND I don’t have to crush them and hide them in her food.) She’s moving around great and I’ve been catching her rolling in the yard so I know she feels good LOL I highly recommend this joint supplement for your beloved family member.
I received this product at a discount in exchange for my honest review.
Not a super quick fix, but given time …..
I have had two of my yorkies on this treat for exactly a month. I held back from giving it immediately after it arrived, wanting to research the brand, company and ingredients first. My dogs were already taking Curaflex 2 – for 5 months, with above average results. I received this product for a reduced price, for a fair and honest review. However, I do not review products that I am not prepared to purchase at full price, in case I end up loving the item. These treats are competitively priced, compared to other reputable brands.
My main concern and reason for thoroughly researching these treats, was the caution statement on the label. How could I be sure that my senior dog didn’t have an underlying condition, listed in the caution? I ended up easing her into the chew by cutting the dosage in half, but within a week, was giving a normal dose. This treat has two ingredients that the Curaflex 2 did not have, making the Nootie treat a better option. The customer reviews also eased my mind on the safety of these treats.
So did they work? We saw an improvement in our oldest dog. She comes out of her bed with less need to stretch and less wobbles. She has a bit of a trot as she goes to the steps to get outside. She seems to take the steps with more confidence than before. The other dog is only 4 1/2 and has luxating patellas, her improvement hasn’t been as remarkable, yet we have seen some.
One drawback for me was the need to administer this treat after a meal. Our dogs are free-feeders, so I have to make sure I pay attention to when they have eaten, so I can give them the treat, This information was listed in the “caution” portion of the label.
I will continue giving these treats daily for two more weeks, then give them at the maintenance dose level.
I will purchase these again, at full price. I love that they are made in the USA and that my dogs love the taste.
UPDATE – – – – Now that it has been a bit longer, I wanted to update the review above.
Both dogs are showing improvement in their overall movement. Yesterday, my 12 year old yorkie ran across the yard. She rarely goes as far out into the yard as she did yesterday. After doing her “business” – she darted back up to the deck and into the house. I haven’t seen that kind of movement from her in several years.
The 4 1/2 year old yorkie is managing the kitchen vinyl floor better, with more confidence. Both dogs were on this supplement, given every day, for six weeks, before remarkable improvement was noted – just as the instructions indicate.
Originally, I gave it 4 stars, but now I am now giving it 5 stars – and will keep purchasing it.
It’s a chew, it’s a treat, it’s Nootie glucosamine to the rescue!
I have two special needs rescue dogs, both of whom have hip dysplasia and arthritis. So I’ve been around the block a time or two when in it comes to canine glucosamine. Here’s what I really like about the Nootie Hip & Joint soft chews.
1) Health benefits: My first dog has been on glucosamine for five years thanks to my vet’s recommendation. He is now ten, and his recent x-rays looked even better than expected, given his age and how long he’s had arthritis. A picture is worth a thousand words, as does his activity level in his senior years. I am a true believer when it comes to how great glucosamine can be.
2) Easy to administer: After my other dog’s recent hip surgery, he became finicky about taking pills and eating in general. These chews didn’t smell like something I’d want to eat, yet my picky dog gobbled up it up just like it was a treat. Such a relief. And these chews are super easy to take along when you are on the go with your pup. They are about the size of a quarter, and are soft enough you can easily tear in half but don’t crumble.
3) Quality: These are made in the USA and have a lifetime guarantee. That is great, although the product safety seal could use some work (not attached very securely). But the chews do come in a nice container that closes securely, which should help keep them soft and fresh.
4) Value: There are 120 chews here. While dosage depends upon your dog’s weight, these chews will last for 4 months for my 55 pound dog. Not too shabby at all. And what price tag could I put on seeing my three year old arthritic dog run full speed after his latest squirrel nemesis?
I was lucky to receive this product at a discount in exchange for an honest review, and I am pleased to give that here. I take this seriously, as I look at reviews when I shop too. My bottom line: glucosamine is a lifesaver here, and the Nootie Hip & Joint Soft Chews are so much like a treat that even my finicky dog was looking for more. Happy owner and dog!
Great for my dogs!
I received this product at a discount for review purposes and I am extremely satisfied with this product. I have used other glucosamine products for my dogs (both Doberman) in the past and usually they all work fine. But this product has the added seed extracts in it that my vet recommended for our aging dog (11 yo) and it helps dramatically with keeping him consistent in his potty routine. Which is huge considering he is on pain meds for other issues which tend to “block him up”.
Great “Dog Treats”
I have 2 small dogs, Jacky who is 15.5 years old and Taco who is 8 years old. I have been giving 1/2 of this treats to each of my dogs. Taco doesn’t really need it but it’s cold and snowy here so I figured it can’t help him for a few weeks, if anything it will just make him a stronger dogie.
Jacky on the other hand is already starting to show lots of signs of aging and our veterinarian recommended a glucosamine supplement.
This supplement is great, they eat it no problem. And there’s 120 chews per container, and since my dogs are small and I only have to give them 1/2 a day that means I have 240 servings per container!
My dogs don’t really know the difference between this supplement and their regular snacks.
It’s too soon to know if Jacky is benefiting from this supplement or not but I’ll continue to give it to her and hope it helps her.
and eats them like they are treats
My dog loves these, and eats them like they are treats. My dog is pretty large, so I have to give him three of them a day, but that is not a problem because the container of them came PACKED full of them. None of that, only half way full of product and the rest is air, this container was packed. The heat from the trip did make the vitamins themselves stick together a little bit, but they didn’t melt and they are easy to pull apart when it is time to give them to my dog. They have a smell to them that I have only ever smelled before in horse feed, so I can only assume that they are full of actual vitamins and no additives that make them look or smell fancy. I did receive this product at a discount for the purpose of review but that has not changed my thoughts on them at all. Overall I am very happy with these vitamins and have not had any issues with them.
