Started off originally buying their chicken jerky. Had been purchasing Tylee's Pork Jerky, but the last two batches had a lot of tiny pieces in the bottoms of the bag, so thought I'd give these a shot. My first bag had almost all nice big sized pieces (a few small broken pieces in the bottom). I know another reviewer said these were hard? That was not my experience at all (maybe she got older bags ready to expire or something) but the ones I received were somewhere between hard and flexible. Enough bite for the dog to chew but not so hard I could not bend or cut with a chef's knife. Dog loves these as much as the chicken ones. Will try the beef ones next since these were such a hit.
Be sure to tear these treats into tiny pieces and supervise carefully while giving them to your pets. I have 2 boxers and although I’ve always torn the pieces, there have been now 2 occasions I’ve had to scoop a piece out of the back of their throats. The piece suctioned to their soft palate/oropharyngeal area and they are unable to swallow it on their own. Scary! So although these are a good quality treat, they are dangerous enough where I’m not comfortable purchasing anymore.
I was looking for a less expensive alternative to Gibson's jerky treats, which are human grade, paper thin, and my elderly dog's favorite treats. Unfortunately, they are also over $16 for a 3 ounce bag. I thought these would be the answer, especially when I opened the bag and the smell of delicious bacon made my mouth water. They have the look of good pork lined with a bit of fat. Other reviewers said they are easy to tear. I don't know if the 2 bags I bought are an aberration, but I can't even cut them with a heavy knife. They are not even chewy: They're hard and sharp. My little guy has 6 teeth; in order for him to eat these, I have to grind them in the food processor. Even then, there are small, sharp bits that require care.
I don't understand why companies add sugar and salt. When I make my own meat snacks I don't and the dogs love them. Both my dogs have tendencies for yeast so sugar is a no no. Wish they made a plain option. The price and quality are good.
My small/medium water spaniel loves these as a full chew for his mid-afternoon or post dog school snack, or smaller pieces as a treat. I love them because of the limited ingredients, stayed fresh, easy to handle and store and killer good price. This was my first Full Moon product and me and puppy Ashby were both happy.
Once again, decided to try another flavor of the same type item. always bought the Chicken version of this Jerky but decided to try the Pork. Well, well - aside from the "Human Grade" in the title, upon opening I told Max I was tempted to indulge myself. This Pork Jerky smells so good & he concurred, anxiously waits for this treat & I don't blame him! Going forward, we will be ordering the Pork. The Chicken was great too but this is even more luscious (per Max). Full Moon products have limited ingredients-all natural & only a few necessary ingredients to process the pork. Excellant Quality.
I have 2 dogs...15 and 18 years old. The 15 yo has all her teeth and love these. The 18 YO needs them into smaller pieces which is VERY easy to do with this pork jerky. At 18 he doesn't get too excited about much...but THESE...I get the biggest tail wags and butt wiggles in anticipation. Warms my heart especially to see my little old man happy
I've been buying this pork jerky snack for my terrier for quite sometime. He absolutely loves it and sometimes I think he has cravings for it when I decide to not buy it or just don't give it to him. It used to be great. The jerky pieces were thick and I'd almost always have to break it into strips before giving this to him. Lately, the strips are so thin, it's almost paper thin. For the price and the amount in the bag, I'm hesitant to buy this again. I know my little guy loves it but it's pricey for what it is worth.
I use these to crate train my dog and she loves them. They come is very large pieces so you have to cut them up. I use scissors.
My golden boy Miles absolutely loves these natural healthy treats. I would recommend all Full Moon Jerky treats.
