Pet Product Review – Happy Hips Chicken & Apple dog treats by Dogswell Recently I received a bunch of samples from the Dogswell Company. Perhaps the most interesting treat in this selection was the Happy Hips Chicken & Apple dog treats. I have to tell you this is unlike any dog treat I’ve ever seen. […]
Dogswell Happy Hips Chicken & Oats Recipe Dry Dog Food | Pet 360
I have three dogs and supplemented their food with varying flavors of Happy Hips canned food.
As a previous reviewer noted, Dogswell indeed changed the consistency of the food and as it appears, the ingredients as well. I'm sorry about the problems that reviewer's pup had with the food but I'm happy to say that all three of my dogs had no problems at all with the change. I just drastically reduced the amount served to acclimate them to the change and slowly increased portion size. But to be fair, two of my three dogs are VERY eager eaters and wouldn't notice a difference anyway but my Lab is quite finicky. But even she adjusted well.
Happy Hips is infused with Glucosamine and Chondroitin. Perhaps it's not enough to make a tangible difference but I do feel better about serving it to my dogs in combination with their other joint supplements administered. They seem to really love the taste.
For the past couple of months, I've rotated away from the Happy Hips line but that's merely part of my regular dietary rotation for the dogs. Every few months, I change protein sources and even use different manufacturers to do so. I made the mistake of keeping my Lab on chicken protein sources for her first two years and now she's horribly allergic to chicken. Now I switch rather frequently to help avoid them developing problems. But Happy Hips has been great for my guys, they'll be back on it soon enough.
I'd recommend this product.

I’ve focussed on the Vitality Chicken & recipe for this review, but all foods from Dogswell are similar, including the Happy Hips range.
