Questions & Answers

2 Customer Questions

where are these treats sources and produced?
Answer by ChewySep 13, 2018
Merrick crafts their recipes with the world's best ingredients from the best producers. Most of their ingredients come from the USA, however, in certain circumstances some ingredients may come from another country (like lamb and venison from New Zealand) to ensure the highest quality possible. Each and every ingredient must meet Merrick’s own rigorous quality standards. Ingredients are tested upon arrival, samples are tested throughout production, and all pet food is tested before its released for sale.

Are these soft and easy to tear into small pieces for a tiny dog, or a dry, stiff jerky?
Answer by ChewyNov 08, 2017
These can easily tear into smaller pieces.

Too Soft, Too Few in Package

My three Keeshonds love the taste of these but there weren't many in the package and they were so soft they broke up when I was taking them out of the package. The package lasted about 3 days for my 3 medium sized dogs - too expensive for me to use regularly.

What a Good find

My dogs love these. I can break off just a little piece for their treat. I can put a piece in my pocket when we walk and they behave because they know a treat is in their future.

Dogs love them!

Because I have very small Shih Tzu, I break these into smaller pieces and they just love them! Breaking them into smaller pieces makes them last longer also!
