Rated 2 out of 5 by KtB5 Item was stale :(
I absolutely love ordering my pets' food stuffs from Chewy's, so I hate having to write a less than exemplary review. Truly.
However, I have been purchasing Stella & Chewy's freeze dried foods from a local brick & mortar store & when the product is fresh, it's crisp-ish and has a bit of a snap - it's an obvious difference. When this product came, sadly the chunks were bendy with no snap to them & they even have a traditional stale smell.
It wouldn't be a HUGE problem, except that our male maine coon is very picky and he cannot eat this stale. It's the ONLY non-kibble food (we use kibble as snack & wet food primarily) he'll eat as a treat. We were SO excited to discover this as a treat food because he is so picky.
I tried giving him some non-stale S&C TTTD that I still had, and he gobbled it up.
So, I have to say I'm very disappointed and sadly don't know that I'm comfortable purchasing this item from you again.
And I really wish that wasn't true. I LOVE you guys. But this was sadly a waste that we can't use (the girls have plenty of their own treats, so it's hard to say when we'd actually use this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lifeinspires Love/hate Stella's Freeze Dried
I'm copying and pasting my review for freeze dried chicken because it applies to this flavor as well:
We feed our cats wet food, but we can't leave wet food when we go to work...so this was the perfect solution. We feed it dry because my cats won't eat this if we add water and they don't or won't eat dry food, so we thought freeze dried would be the perfect snack. BUT the chicken flavor is way too hard and has way too many LARGE bone pieces in it. Some of the bones are pointy and I actually saw my little girl starting to choke on this food several times! I have to crush every piece with my fingers and take the bones out, but it just isn't worth it. This flavor and turkey have too many bones. The duck freeze dried is softer and doesn't have as many large bone pieces. If you feed this re-hydrated then this may not be an issue. It was for us!

Rated 5 out of 5 by KublaiKhan Finally, a no waste food.
Khan, my Lynx point Siamese, developed rodent ulcers, possibly related to a chicken allergy. I tried this food based on reviews and it's limited ingredients. He loves it. He consistently licks his plate clean with this food. I've had waste with every other wet food I've tried, and they were all high end, limited ingredient, as well as vet prescribed foods. He loves the turkey and is fed 3 times a day. I do keep a limited ingredient dry food out for in between meals, because he likes it too, but the Stella and Chewy turkey is his mainstay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ConcernedCatOwner Wonderful Food for Ferrets
I've recently switched my ferrets to freeze dried raw. I tried vital essentials initially, but the bits were too large/ hard for them. I ordered Stella and Chewys, because I've heard lots of other ferrants recommend it. It's more expensive, but my buddies took to the food right away- which is amazing considering that ferrets have a hard time eating new foods.

Rated 5 out of 5 by capecodder easy to prepare and have on hand. no strong smell
both of my young cats love all of the Chewys freeze dried and frozen products that they have tried (turkey, chicken and duck) I just hope they are as good as they claim. Just a slightly higher cost than the canned I was serving and I don't have all those cans to recycle . Still looking for coupons or frequent buyers rebate to bring down cost a bit

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rikkiboo This helped my cat with IBS recover!
I have a 3 year old bombay mix that I adopted 2 years ago. Since day one he and his besty cane with the nastiest diarrhea I've ever seen in a pet. After numerous vet visits and food changes, I insisted on a more definitive fecal test. They both had cryptospodia! Nasty parasite. They both were cleared of it after a few months of meds but my Bombay continued to have bouts of recurring diarrhea. The vets insisted I put him on a prescription diet. He wouldn't go near any food we tried. Over the expense of buying expensive food, I went to a local pet store and they ladies there recommend a raw diet. They told me other cat owners tried Stella & Chewy's with cats having IBS and it seemed to work successfully. I bought a bag and tried it out on Squeaky. Not only will he eat it, but it did make a big difference in his recovery. I neither hear him going or smell his foul poos anymore. The food isn't cheap, but Squeaky is the only one eating it. The bag lasts for a while since he's a tiny cat, barely 6 1/2 pounds. Chewy.com delivery was very fast! I received my shipment in about 2 days! Helpful since it's very hard to find in the local pet stores.

Most of my cats love this sprinkled on their wet food. I don't mix it with water which is fine and less messy.

When our cats hear the SOUND of the bag being picked up, even from another room, they come running and try to climb the counter and knock us over while it's being put in a dish! They love it!
