by HouseofTwoBows All natural chew that will have your pet BEAMing in delight
This is one tough fish skin chew. We got a box of TALLS. Each piece was about 10 ~ 12" long, and each box was generously stuffed with at least 10 pieces. Both of my dogs devoured their stick with gusto. The more vigorous chewer (30 pounds) finished his in about 5 minutes, while the daintier one (20 lbs.) took twice as long. With its hard texture and ridged surface, it seems like a great dental workout.
While the product does smell very strongly of fish, at least there's no mistaking the ingredients -- pure Icelandic fish skin, which is sustainably caught, I might add. My dogs generally do well with fish-based products, which is part of why they have such great skin and coats. This product is not terribly oily or messy though... not that the dogs so much as a crumb to clean up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Major68 Good Source for Chewing and Nutrition
My Chihuahua does not care for them but my Collie loves them. I freeze them and it takes longer to chew and cuts the fish odor.
I think they are a good treat although not a substitute for Bully sticks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Leifyboy Nothing but fish! Rawhide replacement!
My German Shepherd loves rawhide, but I don't like that it may contribute to bloat. I was looking for an alternative treat that will keep him occupy long enough when I clip his nails. Beams is one such treat. He loves it and it is strong enough to keep him busy for 5-10 minutes while I groom him (he is a power chewer). The tall is a good foot long - hard to store, so I cut it in half - works fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WellTraveledDog A special treat.
For most cookies and treats our dogs crunches through them right in front of us. For a "Beam" she looks right, she looks left, and she skulks off to eat this in privacy indicating this is a HIGH VALUE treat. We know she's done because she wanders back all happy, with slightly fishy breath. Silly girl. Love these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LarryFromBoston Great treat and lots of it
I got the tall version, and I didn't realize how much we'd be getting for one order. There are probably 20 sticks in the box. For my puppy, each one can last quite a long time. The perfect treat for a long drive. Although, it's fish, so you can smell it. But, so can my pup who loves to gnaw on it. My puppy would probably take a 2 hours to work through one. Right now, she can't even finish one because it's so big. Overall, it's a long lasting treat that is super healthy and different than any other treat my pup gets. So, definitely recommend it. Oh yeah, it also comes in a resealable bag which is nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SunStar Made for dogs, but my cat loves them
This product is marketed toward dogs, but we have a young ragdoll cat that needed something to chew on while her teeth were coming in. These fish "sticks" really seemed to help her feel better and she got some extra protein as well. She was eating one a day for awhile as she cut her molars. She is older now, but still likes to have these around to chew on to alleviate boredom and as a snack. We like that it is one single ingredient and seems very clean and natural. Took her awhile to get used to holding them up with her paws, but now she is a pro.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Michele29 Everybody loves them!
All my pups love these. They last a little while and they are a great alternative nutrition source. They are stinky when you open the bag but the smell doesn't linger the way bully sticks can.
