    Great for small dogs

    By Fioletowaryba on Jan 4, 2021

    These are really small. Great for our chihuahuas while we are doing the dreaded nail clipping. Clip a nail or two give a treat, clip another nail give a treat. Best results we’ve had clipping nails so far. So very helpful. There are a lot in that little tiny bag but there are easily enough for us to use one treat per nail clipped.

    Great Quality!

    By Jenny on Sep 15, 2020

    My pups love it! I've been using the toppers on their home cooked meals since they were puppies but now I've been adding more of this to their home cooked food (Soon I'll be also adding some of the kibble mix with raw toppers diet since they are becoming adults now). It has the right ingredients as well as the right amount of nutrition. Very happy with the product.

    Finally!! Something she will eat.

    By Rumblechick on Oct 19, 2020

    My Chihuahua is a fussy little thing and I've been having all kinds of trouble finding decent and healthy food she will eat. This worked! Now I just wish they had the same little size in a beef version.

    Wonderful food

    By kelko1977 on Aug 6, 2020

    I was able to sample this with my dog. It is a high quality food. He tolerated it well. It is pricey but if a dog has allergies to multiple things I would say this has got to be a safe alternative. My dog was very reactive when I opened the bag. He definitely enjoyed it.

    Great for treats

    By Jdove on Jul 20, 2020

    I received these for free to see how my dogs liked them. They were a hit! I got the beef and the chicken flavors and my dogs couldn't wait to get to them. I'm mostly using them as treats. Since I don't give my dogs a lot of treats, I like treats that will last a bit if needed. These have a great shelf life and can be given wet or dry.

    Dog loves it!

    By Ashley on Jul 3, 2020

    My German Shepard is not only super picky but he gets upset stomach easily. When I prepared this for him his eyes bulged out of his head in enjoyment. He ate his dinner faster than normal (he normally take forever!) and licked the bowl clean. No upset stomach and a happy dog. I’ll continue buying this for my Shepherd! Worth it!

    Great product

    By Christy on Aug 3, 2020

    My dogs loves these! I like to add it to their kibble for more variety and flavor. I can hardly put the ball down before they are digging in! These also work great as training treats for our youngest puppy.
