Questions & Answers

16 Customer Questions


Can these be sprinkled over food for extra protein or do the morsels need to be dehydrated in water?
Answer by CatLadyAug 23, 2022
They're great sprinkled over food! My cats eagerly ate food they had previously rejected once I crushed the treats with my fingers.

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.

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.

Is this raw or cooked chicken?
Answer by ChewyJun 21, 2021
This human grade, FDA inspected, all white breast meat is carefully sliced into strips. The strips are then fully cooked to eliminate any possible bacteria and then perfectly freeze dried without the use of chemicals, additives or preservatives.

How did the chicken cross the road

I have 2 cats and one of them HATES anything Chicken flavor!! The other eats most anything. I received a sample of both chicken & salmon and my chicken hater, went CRAZY IN LOVE with the Chicken and had nothing to do with the Salmon. I obviously had to purchase a regular size bag of the Chicken to see if I was dreaming. I believe she would have indulged in the entire bag if I allowed.

The gold standard for cat treats

Our cat comes running from the far room anytime I begin to open the bag — he is so highly attuned to and in love with these treats that they're what we've been using to train him to wear his kitty holster so we can walk him outside. We always serve it to him after adding water so they're just like pieces of boiled chicken. All the stars for these chicken charms!

Amazing but expensive

These treats are great! Only thing that is a bit difficult for me is that they're too crumbly! My pup has a sensitive tummy and she gets vegetarian kibble which is very low protein. I use single ingredient treats such as these to make sure she gets at least some protein and yum yum in her tum tum! She tolerates these well.

Pricey product

Hefty price! Switched to competitor charging about 40% of the price for same amount of Life Essentials. Would be great to find that Life Essentials would fall in line with market.

Excellent, but not my kitten’s favorite.

I am very happy with the Life Essentials treats. my kitten likes these either crush on top of his food or broken up and given to him as a training treat, but I must say I will purchase the Life Essentials salmon or beef flavors in the future. That’s probably particular to my kitten’s preferences; not that it isn’t as excellent as the other two flavors. they are shaped like a piece of chicken cut off from the breast. They crush more easily than the other two and quite a few were crushed at the bottom of the bag, So I only use them as a topper on wet food or mix it in with dry food. He does not respond/eat them when using them for clicker training… whereas he is eager for the salmon or beef flavors by Life Essentials. Because of my kitten’s taste preferences only, we will probably not purchase these again, but in no way am I implying that the are any less excellent than the other two flavors. Although they are somewhat costly, each flavor is well worth the price. However, we will from now on put that purchase price towards the other two flavors that he swoons over.

It is really great!

The Cat Whisperer called it, 'Kitty Crak' for a good reason!! Best treet, ever! Doggies love it, too!

Good Treats

My dogs do love this this treat. It's real light and easy for them to chew. When I walk in the door, dogs are at the ready for their new treat. So glad I found these

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...

Great mouse toy

These toys are entirely soft. Ears are felt pieces sewn onto the body. Eyes are embroidered. Tail is soft; long enough to chew, not long enough to swallow. Body is soft fabric full of soft stuffing. Light weight, easily batted around. Good for every age cat.
