Add to Autoship

I was influenced on social media to try adding a raw freeze dried dog food as a topper to my dog’s kibble. This was not the brand they recommended but this one was available on Chewy. I use it as both treat and a topper for Yak’s meal kibble. This will be at least the third time ordering, I cannot say I have seen any changes in poop, coat, weight, teeth, energy, etc. but he is more excited about this bag coming out than other treat bags.

LOVE it!

Bought this on sale to use for training treats and my dog loves it! Her engagement on walks is unreal. Too expensive to feed as her regular diet but will definitely purchase again.

Tasty treats or topper

I like using the freeze dried bits as treats or meal toppers. Of course now my dog is a little too used to having them as toppers and won't usually eat his meals unless there are some of these mixed in. The beige color of these threw me off at first, since they are Beef, but they are eaten no matter the color. Makes me wonder if other brands have coloring added. I might consider giving this as a whole meal, but the amount/lb is still the same as regular kibble.

She Loves It!

We mix it with a little bit of water and she eats it up quickly. It's just a bit pricey

Great topper

We used this as a meal for our yorkie but she developed tummy issues. We now use it as a topper for the other 2 bigger dogs and we put 1 or 2 on her orjen food

Picky Eater approved

This is amazing, my dog has always been a picky eater she doesn’t even like some wet food. once I fed her this she ate it all,I have been feeding this to her for a few weeks and she finishes every meal highly recommend to anyone with a picky dog.

This is the One

After researching a lot of raw dehydrated brands I landed on this one and my dog LOVES it! It is a high value treat as well as 1/2 of her food daily. I do still mix this with a high protein kebble. I am not 100% convinced she needs only this meat. Dogs eat berries and grass in the wild too.

My picky dog loves this But.....

My dog loves this. he is naturally on the thin side and not a great eater. He loves this food but needs almost twice what they recommend for a meal. I may buy it again, not sure. trying others too.
