I have two new kitties and they still haven’t let me really touch them. These snackies are the only thing that allows me right now to get close to them because they will eat them right out of my hands. I use them to help us all bond because I know they will come running when I shake the bag. I am so thankful for them!! They are a sure thing!!
Looks good but dog will not eat

We love Chewy and always purchase Freeze-Dried items for our Diabetic Senior Rescue Dog. These are packed well in good size pieces but our fur-baby will not touch. It is harder and harder to find treats that do not contain sugar or cane syrup. What dog needs sugar? Really wanted to like this excellent brand.
A little disappointing
on Apr 26, 2021
These dog treats are just what I was wanted for my diabetic dog and she loves them. The disappointment was that there was as much powder in the bag as there were bite size pieces. The treats aren’t cheap and there will be a lot of waste, so I hope they find a better way to package them.

Only down side is he takes them out of his bowls and gets the crumbs all over the floor, but he absolutely loves these. So weird only with these does he eat off the floor intentionally.
It's a hit!

I had a cat that loved Life Essentials Salmon, so I decided to try the Chicken. I have a 7 year old and a 3 year old and they both loved this! I recently bought Cat-Man-Doo Bonito Flakes, and they both love that as well. So I put a little of both down for them this morning and they really enjoyed it. I usually give them a little in the morning, and then again in the evening. Next time I will get the larger bag. I like that the bigger pieces can be easily broken into a smaller bite size. I also love the fact that this is made right here in America. Maybe I'll try the other flavors. If my cats are happy, I'm happy. Thanks, Chewy, for carrying this great brand of treats!
These are the BEST!

I started out trying Pure Bites for my two boys who will not eat nothing but kibble because I wanted them to have a healthy meat only treat instead of their usual carb laden treats. These are FAR SUPERIOR. They come in nice big, chunks, not slivers or shards. I offered to them out of the bag at first and they loved then immediately and waited for more. I decided to try rehydrating them and wow, was I surprised at their reaction! My two boys, who don't like wet food, wouldn't eat raw, wouldn't eat a homemade diet... But love these! They smell like fresh chicken, they look like fresh chicken once you rehydrate them and the broth is excellent... they drank the little bit of broth too!

They smell like fresh chicken, they look like fresh chicken once you rehydrate them and the broth is excellent... they drank the little bit of broth too! I'm so excited they can eat some real protein every day, it's low calorie and no absolutely no carbs. I can feel good about feeding this to them. These are cats that have never eaten meat in their whole 8 and 6 years respectively. Every night we have our routine where they sit patiently next to me at my bedside letting me know it's time. As an owner of the persian cat breed for 39 years, I wish these had been around many years ago. These are first two who have never eaten wet food or raw or homemade diet. So frustrating worrying about health problems related to kibble. I personally would recommend that you try to offer them rehydrated for the benefit of added water. I hope is to use these to try to transition them to high quality wet food or even better! Paws crossed! And well, Yes, you could make your own in a food dehydrator, but I don't have one and these serve my purpose just fine! Maybe I'll get one, but until then this is great. Oh,and for those complaining about powdered pieces... Simply request that these be placed in a separate order from heavier items. Problem solved! Use the shake at the bottom of the bag as a topper or rehydrate! There's always going to be SOME shake at the bottom,expect that.
And FYI, this is also a much better deal than two of the medium sized bags of Pure Bites, quality and quantity.
Enjoy your bonding time with your kitties! Soooooo worth it!… more
Really Good Freeze Dried Chicken
on Feb 25, 2021
After reading some reviews about the freeze-dried chicken being smashed to dust in shipping, we were concerned about the quality....however the two bags we received by USPS were not damaged at all.
In fact we break up the pieces before giving it to our animals.
Our two 14 year old cats and 10 year old dog LOVE this product. It is so true that they hear the bag being opened and come running. It is excellent.
The best treats ever!

My 9 year old 10 lb mini poodle just adores Life Essentials Chicken Freeze-Dried Cat & Dog Treats. He'll do anything to get one as a reward. I used them to teach him to climb the pet stairs. He had an ear infection and with these treats as a reward, he just loved getting his ear drops! Last week I was visiting my daughter and her 2 dogs. They went nuts for them also. These treats are 100% freeze dried chicken, so they are great for him also!

Due to the chicken being freeze dried, it was crumbled inside the bag and it crumbles when the cats eat it. With that said, the pieces that they eat, there are crumbs on the floor when they eat it and they don't eat the crumbs and they leave. Not sure if anything can be done about it since it is due to the way chicken is. The cats love the taste, but it is too crumbly therefore I am not going to buy it again.

Excellent quality of this freeze dried chicken compared to other brands that I’ve tried however it is very pricey. I won’t be able to buy it frequently but it is a nice treat occasionally. .
