  • Product unfortunately was stale

    By on

    I've bought this product before but from my local pet store. My bengals love them crumbled over their food or just as treats. My male bengal can only have duck so I am thrilled that he likes them. However, although the date on the package was far from expiration date, as soon as I opened it I could smell that they were very stale. I'm very cautious about what I feed my babies so I didn't think it was a good idea to let them eat these. Going to have to try again maybe reordering them from chewy.

  • Kitty Treats!

    By on

    These are included in their regualr food, the Raw Boost Duck & Turkey. They pick out these morsels first..so, when I saw them for sale, in a separate bag, I knew they'd be devoured!

  • My cats would not eat this product.

    By on

    I rated this product very low using the above scale or net promoter score, but the problem may be specifically with my cats. They absolutely would not eat these treats under any circumstances. I donated the bag to a local shelter. I won't buy this product, or any "freeze-dried" product from this vendor again. I must say, however, that the individual treat pieces came apart when rolled between my fingers as though they were stale. Don't know if that is their normal state or not.

  • Powdered Duck

    By on

    Tried these treats during a LID transition. When package arrived there was lots of loose powder. The treats were dry, like powdered duck. Our cat nor a neighbor cat liked them, wet or dry. Our cat did not like many other treats or human food either, except the ones that were bad for her diet. We found she like the LID rabbit dry food we had transitioned her to, so we can use the regular food as a treat too.

  • Cats Scream for Mini Duck Treats

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    Normally my two cats, Mads and Milly, aren't overly excited about treat time. You know cats, they are creatures unto themselves. However, I decided to try these on them and WOWZA! They LOVE these treats. As soon as I go to the area where the treats are stored, my very verbal Milly starts a'hollerin and my normally quiet, shy, big kitty Mads starts politely patting my hand letting me know he wants some now.

  • Not like any other treat

    By on

    We bought a trial pack of the brand's dry food and our cat loved it so we got a regular size and followed by her satisfaction, we decided to buy the can food and the treats. So far so good, each treat 2 calories only and she loves them.

  • Premium Edge cat food

    This is the same price to have it special ordered at my local feed store and it comes to my house rather than having to take the time, fight traffic and take it home. Boom. It's soooo convenient .

  • Another Flavor of Treat Cats Love

    By on

    Every morning, the two young boy cats wait for their mini-treats. They keep looking around for it, as they know the routine. They come running once I pick up the package and look for it eagerly. They even fight over it. One kitten seems to have a very sensitive stomach (have an appointment with the vet) but has gained weight appropriately and seems fairly healthy, but does throw up a lot after eating dry food. This treat seems to cause him no problem, so it must be pretty healthy and easy to digest. Same as previous review but different flavor of same item.
