April 2015: After the parties agreed to voluntarily dismiss this lawsuit, a federal judge dismissed this lawsuit with prejudice (meaning that the plaintiffs cannot refile the complaint). The reasons for the dismissal have not yet been disclosed.

August 2014: Although a federal judge trimmed some of the claims in this class-action lawsuit (in response to the defendants’ motion to dismiss), the claims moving forward still allege that K9 Glucosamine does not work as advertised and does not contain the represented amount of chondroitin sulfate.

March 2014: A class-action lawsuit against Liquid Health Inc. was transferred from state court to federal court. The complaint, which was originally filed in state court in February 2014, alleges that the company deceptively represents that K9 Glucosamine (a dietary supplement for dogs) maintains the “health and resiliency of a dog’s joints and connective tissues” when the product actually does not work as advertised. In addition, plaintiffs claim that the company represents that each fluid ounce of the supplement contains 1,200 mg of chondroitin sulfate when, in reality, each fluid ounce only contains 16% of the promised concentration. (Hoffman et al v. Liquid Health Inc. and Alex Abreu, Case No. 14-cv-01838, D. NJ.).
