Questions & Answers

17 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.

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.

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.

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 ?
