Hip + Joint for Cats
My cats love this
A couple years ago, my 16 yr old cat started missing jumps, stopped running and playing, stopped grooming. With our vet's approval, we tried these. First thing is, the 16 yr old loved the taste. Second thing is, within a week he started running around again. Within a month, he was chasing his tail again like a kitten. OK, maybe not as fast as he did 15 years ago, but hey - he was chasing his tail. Pretty spry for an old guy, eh? So he has had two more good years. As his age creeps up there, he is developing other health issues that are slowing him down again, but I am so grateful for these two years. Third thing is, I started giving them to the 13 year old cat before she started showing any signs of slowing down. I look forward to her continued good health.

Help your cat's joints stay strong
My cat is only about 2 1/2 years old. He likes to jump. I just started him on this supplement to try to help protect his joints as he ages. He also has a little extra weight which only makes it worse. He readily eats them like treats. I'm all about prevention. This should help

Lip smackin' good!
My cat loves these, but I'm unsure how to rate effectiveness. Keep in mind that glucosamine and condrointin doesn't work for everyone.

It Really Works!
Within a few days of giving these supplements to one of my cats, we noticed a big improvement in his ability to jump onto an ottoman or climb in and out of the litter box. The package instructions indicates that you can double the dosage, so that's what we have done, so he gets 2 in the morning, 2 in the evening. It really has made a big difference in his agility and we are so glad we gave these a try.

Better than Capsules
I had tried to give my cat similar products in capsule form - sprinkling the capsule content on food or dissolving in water. It usually made a mess, and little actually got into my cat! My cat loves these chews - the first I've seen for cats (there are plenty on the market for dogs...). I have seen a difference in his movement in the month he's been enjoying them. This has made a difference in his quality of life.

Hip & Joint for cats
My 16 year old cat LOVES these. I break them in half and throw them so she gets a bit of exercise retrieving them.

Kitty Won't Eat
I think these could be good for my 11 yr old kitty but she just won't eat them. I break them up and try to hide them in her dry or wet food but she knows they are there and then doesn't even want to eat her food. I tried giving it to her first off as a treat but she wouldn't eat it either, it must not be the flavor to her liking, Bummer ! Now, I have 2 other kittys but they aren't to the age where they need these yet, but they will eat them out of the other kitty's dish if she doesn't want it.

This products does what it says. However, for my elder cat who is 13 yrs old. He has lost teeth and has difficulty chewing hard foods. Which, buying this item I thought would be softer and benefit him. However, there are times he will not eat these. This includes if I run them under water to make them softer for him.
Tho, my other cats love them.

I've been using this for years now and am thankful that I found it from Swanson's at a cheaper price.
My cat acts like she's 3 now that she feels better and she's 12!
Now if only I could take them and feel better... LOL

My Cat Loves These!
I noticed my cat, Jack, moving slower than usual. We buy all of our products from Swanson so I decided to check out what they might have for our cat. I ordered two packages of the chews for him. After a couple of weeks I noticed him moving much more freely and he had a sparkle in his eyes again. I just ordered four more packages for him. He loves the flavor and he lets me know twice a day that it's time for his treats. Wonderful product and I won't run out of these!

My cat has always been very healthy and now that he is 13 years old, I certainly want him to enjoy the remaining years of his life.
I have been giving Zen two treats per day for 9 months and he really likes them.
The treats are fish shaped and smelly, just the way a kitty likes them. I break each one up into three smaller pieces so that he thinks he is getting more. He really likes the taste of them which is great since he can be a bit picky.
Even at his age Zen is able to run up and down the stairs, jump over the recliner and zip around the house and I feel that these supplement/treats may help keep him zippy longer. Since giving him the treats I have noticed that he spends less time stretching when he stands up to move around, so perhaps he is a more comfortable and less stiff.
Swanson always has a great price on this product. I value my cat's health just as much as I value my own.

I bought this product because a senior member of my family takes the human chondroitine-glucosamine-MSM formula and she feels absolutely excellent. I thought this might also work for my old kitty. And it actually did! He's been taking this for 1.5 months now and his health has boosted ever since. He moves with far more agility, he is very lively and he climbs and jumps from things like he used to in his young days. I read a review saying that the cat cannot chew the product. That is true for my teeth-less cat too, but here is what you should do in this case: take the chew and divide it into several pieces (3,4). The cat will immediately eat them all, even if it has no teeth. Go for it as it will make your cat feel incredible! I would recommend using it along with the ''Daily best for cats'' for extra energy.

cat joint supplements
My cat eats these like treats. Much easier than mixing powder in food. They do take a bit longer to see results but they do seem to be working.

My 9 year old male cat is moving around so much more. He's playing again and chasing his "mouse," etc. Easy to give him 2 treats a day. He likes them & would probably eat more if I let him. Really helps his hip joints. Good stuff. Buy them!

Keeps kitty hopping!
I bought these for my 20+ year old kitty to help her move more freely. She now is climbing all over the furniture and loves getting them as a treat. Great find!

A Great Find
My kitty loves these and they're a great way for her to get the glucosamine and chondroitin that her vet recommended. I couldn't get her to take supplements any other way until I discovered these. I'm so glad I found them!

My Finicky Cat Loves It
My 12-year-old shorthair loves this and it seems to be helping him. I have recommended it to my vet.

Glad product is available for Cats
I have been waiting for a product like this for my elder cat. She is part Manx and Persian....with the long hind legs and short front ones. As age settled in she had to stop a lot as it was tough on the front paws. With this helpful/healthy treat she is doing so much better in getting around

my cat actually eats these!
My cat will eat these! This is much better than mixing powder in her food. Great for her hips.

Cats couldn't chew
I bought these for my 13 year old cat with some joint problems. Neither he nor the younger cats had much success chewing them up. If they can't chew them, it really doesn't matter how good they are for them.
And while my cats have all their teeth, many older cats who would need the product have lost many of their teeth.

This is the best product I could find so far, that my old cat likes and eat's eagerly. She loves the taste so I don't feel like I have to force her or trick her by mixing in food.

My 30+ year old cat LIKES the stuff and comes trotting when called for her fix. She is getting more like her old comfortable self. She is more active and becoming playful again. It is good to follow directions and give double doses for the first 6 weeks. She has been happily munching these treats for about a month now. I plan to keep her supplied as long as needed. Patti
