WORKS! They ALL like it; no force feeding here!!!!
In any event, haven’t met a Greyhound yet who does not love these. Not only that, I have seen remarkable improvement in agility, desire to play and romp, renewed interest in toys, consistent improvement in ease in pouncing on the beds, serious athleticism in swiping the tomatoes from my topsy turvys in the yard, even stealing a 3 lb pumpkin off the back step to munch on behind the tree in the back yard. The younger ones have resumed ‘running laps’ around the yard while the older ones (2 are 11, 9, 8, 5 and 2 are 4) seem younger and instigate play more often than before. They are energetic, not as stiff after a nap or nighttime, want to do more, play more, walk more/further and, while it may be my imagination, the older ones seem to be eating better. (They had gotten to a point where sometimes they would eat, sometimes not, sometimes just nibble a few bites and walk away).
All in all, they like this product and I am thrilled already with the positive changes I see in my ‘kids’ who are always with me and the fosters who arrive in rough shape but leave for happy, responsible homes upon adoption. I dislike pumping meds into any pet when something else will help. I’m sticking with this product. It works for me and mine. I wouldn’t purchase 7-10 6 lb bags of this product at a time if my pups weren’t exhibiting such remarkable improvements. Their quality of life has definitely improved. Packaging says to allow 4-6 weeks for best results but it took less than 3 weeks for me to begin seeing significant changes in all of my guys and gals. Can’t wait to see what 6+ weeks of using this product will produce!
Each ALL NATURAL biscuit contains 500 mg glucosamine and is a substantial ‘treat’. Biscuits are approx. 3-4″ long and perhaps .75″ high and quite crunchy to promote strong teeth and healthy gums. They are a bit difficult to break other than in halves. After that initial break, they are too tough to break into smaller chunks, thus the need for my abovementioned ‘chopper’. Each bag purchased to date has arrived in excellent condition. Out of 14 6-lb bags to date (2 separate orders), only 2 biscuits were broken in half; nothing was crushed or broken into small chunks. Very little residue at bottom of resealable bags. Unfortunately, I did count the biscuits in the first 2 (original order) bags to determine whether or not I would stick with this product pricewise, but I’ve forgotten now what that count was so I cannot share that at this time. And because I’m back to order more, if I remember, I’ll update this review when I count them again. Directions for use: 1/2 wafer/biscuit per 40 lbs body weight twice daily.
PLEASE NOTE: Some (not all) of the statements on the reverse of package – thought I’d share before you buy:
– Administer during or after the animal has eaten to reduce potential incidence of gastrointestinal upset.
– An exam from a vet is recommended prior to using this product.
– Keep out of reach of children. In case of accidental overdose, contact a health professional immediately.
– Safe use in pregnant animals or animals intended for breeding is not recommended.
– Consult with your vet before using this product in animals with clotting disorders, being treated with anticoagulant medications, diabetes, or any metabolic disorder causing hyperglycemia, history of urinary tract stones, and known allergies to shellfish.
easy way to help doggie’s joints
Almost all of the biscuits arrived whole and they stay fresh in the sealable bag.
These definitely aren’t gourmet treats so if your dog is finicky, you may want to use caution; mine ate them up with no problem.
Tastes so good, she looks for it in the morning!
As soon as the Nutri-Vet Hip & Joint Peanut Butter Large Dog Biscuits arrived, I offered a biscuit to Kuma. She took it, wagged her tail and came back for another one! Now, she knows that she only gets one every morning before her chicken jerky treats! It’s great when you don’t have to force feed your best friend! What a relief to see Kuma walk with minimal stiffness or pain in her hips after a couple of weeks.
The shipper didn’t wrap the “wafers” in a plastic bag. The shipper didn’t make any attempt to protect or bubble-wrap the contents. I’m not in a position to report the effectiveness of the glucosamine; but I can tell you I am extremely disappointed in the way it was packaged and shipped. If you plan to order any of Amazon’s glucosamine products; I strongly urge you to check the way in which it will be packaged. Thumbs down to Amazon for this product!!!
Fabulous dog treats!
They love these.

Seems to work
Excellent Product Especially for Large Dogs
I first purchased these biscuits at PetSmart about 6 months ago when I noticed my dog limping here and there – primarily after a lot of exercise. He was approaching 7 years of age so I thought it was time to provide preventative measures for his hips and joints. I found this item to be very expensive in PetSmart ($26.99 for one bag, so I decided to check Amazon when I was almost out of the biscuits. I was able to purchase them for $17.99 a bag – almost a $10 difference! Being a Prime member, I received free shipping. Excellent deal all around.
I am extremely picky with what my dogs eats, and I would highly recommend this product. There is also a smaller biscuits size for small and medium dogs.
I paid for bones, not broken bones.
Not happy at all.
Dog likes them, not sure if how effective the glucosamine is
nutri vet dog biscuits – 20 pound box
great product for older dogs with arthritis
the best for my best dog
Always reliably effective – and healthful too! 🙂
But within a day or two of feeding these to her, she’s back to walking normal again. I know I know. some of you might be calling BS on that, but I know our little girl dog here and how sensitive she is to any change in nutrition. Just a few kibbles make a difference with her weight. she’s fed twice a day, about a cup or a little less each time, and one of these biscuits with her supper.
Nutri-Vet did a very good job with these. If I liked peanut butter flavor, I’d eat’em too for my bad joints. You definitely can’t beat the mg/biscuit for the price.
In short, I’d most definitely recommend these for any dog who needs ’em. They work.
And of course, Amazon always has the best price – even though several other places try to undercut amazon by a few bucks, they kill the deal with their shipping costs. One thing that cracks me up though about Amazon, is the big box of these is, per biscuit or per pound, MORE expensive than buying a few 6lb’ers. so watch that. Bulk is not always in your favor. If it is the box convenience you’re after, use a plastic tub at home ‘n empty the bags into it. Oh, the bags also reseal to keep these from drying out – they’re alreay crumbly crunchy texture, but I guess it makes us people feel better to think our dog(s) are getting the most fresh they can.
Good luck, and remember – always do your best to be the great person your dog figures you are – it helps.
It appears that these no longer get put into a plastic bag before being put into the box. This allows all sorts of mishaps.
The first box we got this way had mostly broken bits and appeared to be stale. (No, the puppies did not complain)
Amazon.com send out a replacement box. This one was full of little bugs. Grose. It got tossed into the trash. (Puppies were sad…)
So I called the company, spoke to a very nice person who said they would look into it, and get back to me.
Less then a week later, a box arrived, and in it were four 6lbs bags of these treats! These 6lbs bags are heavy duty and re-sealable.
Although I am not sure why they do not seal the 20lbs boxes as they used to, the company did a very nice CS fix, and I will continue to support them by buying the 6lbs bags.

My picky eater gobbles these up.
I too found many broken biscuits, however I toss the broken bits into a meal and my dog thinks she’s struck gold (she’ll dig the bit out from the bowl, race down the hallway as if to hide the find from me while she gobbles it up, then return to finish her meal).
My vet recommended glucosamine as a preventive measure for my dog (a seven year old SPCA-special, mini Aussie/Border Collie mix), coupled with the need to shave a few pounds from her as an added preventive measure – ultimately, these biscuits, bits and pieces included, have replaced many of the more caloric treats I was giving my dog – that’s why I don’t mind the broken bit (yes, I was guilty of providing too many treats, hence the need for her to drop a bit of weight). Although my dog doesn’t have joint issues, she has dropped two pounds and if that’s all the biscuits do for her at this stage, well, I still think we’re both ahead of the game 🙂
Here’s hoping my dog doesn’t tire of these biscuits 🙂
