#Chewy Influencer - A Day at the Park - NaturVet GCM Soft Chew Review

A new year and a new product lead to a new routine. 

 For my second #ChewyInfluencer product review I am trying out the...

... NaturVet Glucosamine DS Plus  MSM & Chondroitin LVL2 Dog & Cat Soft Chews, 120-count.

Ahh the park, a lovely place to spend the day and do a Chewy review. 

But first let's PLAY!

Weee!  Weee!

Can I play in the sand? (*)

That was fun!

Now you know how much I love to run, jump and play.  Well when momma saw these in the chewy email list she said these would help me stay feeling my best and help my joints.  I was a little unsure as it seems like medicine and well you all know my stance on medicine.  I have been known to give momma the silent treatment for weeks when she gave me my heartworm pill.    

But now that I am a big girl and wanting to keep myself in top preforming condition I decided to try it out.

So lets take a quick peak at the specs.

The Price is $22.90 for a 120 Chew supply (4 months supply in my case) and works out to $1.43 a Week.  Thats something we can can definately fit into the budget.  

Now onto the official sniff/taste test portion.

Awww! Cute little squares.  

They are about twice the size of my training treats which is perfect for a morning snackie before daycare.  

Momma these smell like treats not medicine.  You sure they are medicine? *CHOMP*

Yum! I think I am going to like this! Tap it out!

We did photo check-in throughout the month.  I took the chew every time.  Some days I ate it at my table, some days I would eat in my agility tunnel, but NEVER did I ever not want my daily chew.  

In final review the NaturVet GCM Soft Chews get a 5(*****) Star rating.  I have been taking these for 3 weeks.  These treats are very palatable (Even for picky pups, such as myself), are affordable, and momma has noticed a lessening of my limp-ee leggie. (~See Below)  

We did officially put them on autoship.  I am going to stay on these so I can continue to run, play and jump for a LONG TIME!!!!

#Ad - I was sent this product in exchange for my honest opinion.

*Disclaimer - Momma assisted in filling all holes dug by me, Lucy.  

~A note from momma: I have noticed a skip/bunny hop when running, an intermitten limp when Lucy is playing/going to the bathroom and 2 incidences when her leg goes stiff and she cried.  I am hoping this may be joint pain due to either colder weather or growing pains or playing too rough (she has been known to body slam a certain cockapoo).  This will be checked at her upcoming annual vaccine appointment in April.  Shh don't tell her.  I don't want her to worry till April about pokies!  So that was a deciding factor in wanting to try these as well.  :)


  1. Joint health is very impawtent. Great review!

    Keep Calm & Bark On!

  2. Grreat idea, take care of your joints now and maybe they won't hurt so much when you're an old pup like me!
