Wisconsin--One of my cats really likes the Zuke's treats, so I have a bag that I am giving her, but very, very carefully.  I only give her about 1 every 2 weeks, just because I am nervous about most every commercial product right now, especially those with supplements.  I have noticed no ill effects, but like I said, she gets very minimal amounts.

About the cat treats--they have a chewy texture that this particular cat really seems to like.  However, if you keep them in the bag they come in, even zipped shut, they dry out fairly quickly and get hard after opening. I have been putting the closed bag inside another sealed container, and this seems to slow down the drying process.

Another one of my cats, who had some back teeth removed last year, can't chew these up and will choke if she is given them.  Might be something to watch out for if you have cats with missing teeth or who are elderly.  I did use the hip ones for couple of years with an elderly cat who passed in 2005, and they seemed to help her a lot.

I have given my cats Zukes Hip Action treats off and on for the last couple years.  They like them when the bag is first opened, but like catbird pointed out, they tend to dry out and become hard pretty quickly and then the cats don't want them.  I am now storing them in tupperware and I'll see if that helps.

  Ohio        I have given these to Tinker, my wheat allergy kitty, for the past couple of years. She loves them! My other two, Jinx and Jasper, refuse to eat them.

Hello from Ontario, Canada.  I used the Hip Action treats for several years on our elderly cat.  She was 17 when she left us...and the treats really help since she was have a bit of trouble walking up and down the stairs due to age.  She liked the treats very much and I and NO PROBLEMS what so ever with them.  I gave her the treats daily, and if I can remember correctly about 4 per day.

Wow.  My cat's go crazy for these.  I only give them 1 each every few days.

I looked at the ingredients no by products corn etc.  There may be something i missed cause im new at this but they look like quality ingredients.  The salmon flavor actually has salmon as the 1st ingredient.  I noticed alot of other brands would say something like salmon flavor and just end up being chicken supposed to taste like salmon.  Ive tried the chicken flavor and the salmon flavor. Cats like both a lot.  I just picked up another flavor called "hip action".  it has glucosamine and chondroitin. from my memory isnt that supposed to help joints?? 2 of my cats ate these things up like candy. One didnt like the hip action flavor. It says to feed two bites a day for the first 4 weeks to see a  more "comfortable and agile friend"   Shocked

im in cali. so far these have rocked i totally recommed them to other cat owners.

For dogs they have chicken filets that is all natural, no artificial preservatives, colors or flavors, no BHA, added tallow or by-products. Agree stickyicky my dog likes these but are getting harder to find.

On petfooddirect.com they might have what you are trying to find.  I looked up zukes to see if they had anything else that my pet store didnt have and a whole bunch of different dog treats came up. hope this helps.  Ive ordered from petfooddirect.com 2 times so far.  The first time it took like 14 days for me to get my order. this last order it only took 7 -10 days. dont quite remember i just know it was quick.

Topics merged.  My cats still go crazy for Purzz.  I occasionally give the Hip Action ones to my arthritic cat.  I think they should put the dosing in bigger letters so people don't over supplement.  I've even taken 2 Purrz and used them to discuss medicine when I had to pill a cat.

I bought the Hip action ones for Topaz Salmon and Chicken packages both.  Topaz will not touch either flavor and Geisha will only eat the salmon ones.  More money down the drain.  SIGH

Thx for the link. I also bring the empty bag into my local Pet Supplies Plus and ask them if they would order it and have it in the store. Just shopped there last sat. and they now are carrying Orijen which surprised me. Had sample bags at 1.99 so bought one to try. They also carry the Zukes but mostly with the glucosamine in it and my dog is only 2 1/2 so she does not need joint support yet, lol. But will check out the link in case my local store decides not to order these to keep in the store.
