Questions & Answers

16 Customer Questions


Can these be sprinkled over food for extra protein or do the morsels need to be dehydrated in water?

Why is it recommended DO NOT REFRIGERATE? I refrigerate all of my other freeze dried treats once I open them.
Answer by ChewyAug 17, 2018
It's not recommended to refrigerate freeze-dried treats because the moisture found in the refrigerate can rehydrate them and cause them to spoil. It's recommended to store these treats in a resealable bag or an airtight container in a dry location.

How long is the shelf life after opening?
Answer by ChewyOct 31, 2018
When stored in a cool, dry place this product stays fresh after 1 year of opening. Every expiration date will be different for each bag, as different batches are constantly being produced. The expiration date will be stamped on the back of the bag.

Does the meat come from chickens raised in the USA?
Answer by ChewyMar 09, 2020
All of the Life Essentials meat products are sourced from small farms in Oregon, USA.

Cat Deliciousness

Life Essentials is the brand to get. The cats go absolutely crazy for these freeze-dried pieces. They are clean, white and crisp. Sure, there are some crumbs but that goes on the wet food. The previous brand that we had are Pure Bites and those got worse through the years and are now brownish, hard, and greasy. Terrible! Glad to have tried Life Essentials and will purchase these from now on. Cats love these, healthy too!!

Oh boy! Oh Boy!

This stuff is a sure seller. Both Fizz (especially Fizz) and Marigold love these treats, so much so that Fizz would be good if I just gave him the whole bag. (Won't happen) But you have to remember, it's a treat for good little girls and boys, so don't allow yourself to be guilted into giving your honeys more than they should have. I break up one big piece or two smaller ones. And it's real chicken, so it's guilt free - sort of. Oh yeah, and did I mention that Fizz and Marigold are cats? 'Cause we all know how fussy cats are...

Can’t be without them

I have been giving my cats these for years. My tribe started out with six of the most beautiful and lovable strays twenty five years ago. Back then I fed them Life Essentials and I will continue to feed that to every cat we have until the end. They don’t get any other treats. They are pure chicken and nothing else, no junk! By the way they absolutely love them. I also have one on reserve in case I don’t order in time.

chicken treats

My 2 cats love thes treats. They get exited when they hear the bag. One draw back is the crumbs they leave. I don't know if it's the treats or my 2 knuckle heads. They do love them so it's worth it.

Cats love!

I bought these for the first time. My cats love them! I put a bit of water on them to soften them up. Both kitties love them but one in particular! I left the bag on the counter and they chewed it trying to get at the treats. Hubby put them in the cabinet and the one kitty was trying to open the door!

The chicken chunks were all powdered

Wish I could post the pics . It arrived powdered and crushed . Why would they pack a huge 40 lbs litter bag with the dry frozen chicken bag ?

Great Lower Fat Dehydrated Option

My standard poodle loves dehydrated food but a lot of it doesn’t love her back because typically it’s fat content is too high for her and results in a Montezuma’s revenge. However, this stuff is great. It’s low in fat so she can digest it without issue and she gets the dehydrated chicken she loves. I crumble it and use it like a seasoning over her food. Picky eater and sensitive tummy approved.

The fur baby loves it!

My cat absolutely loves this treat. Sometimes, I will sprinkle it over his regular food and he will lick the chicken out immediately. It comes in pretty large chunks but it can be crumbled easily.

Our toy poodle loves these treats!

Our toy poodle absolutely loves these treats and works so hard for them! We’ve been using them since she was a puppy and now she is 1.5 years old. They are great for training because you can break them up into small pieces. They are easy to digest and made of only chicken! The crumbly bits and powder at the end of the bag make for a tasty treat atop her dry food. I have given these as treats to other dogs we know, and they are a hit every time! Highly recommend.

Cats and dog love it

The flavor seems to make the critters really happy. The bag I got had a lot of small crumbs that I sprinkled on top of the dog’s food. She thought that was great, like bbq sauce on pulled chicken
