    Perfect for our Little Dogs

    By on

    These are perfect for our mini dachshunds who have had a number of teeth extracted. Lately even the softer treats were difficult for them. These we use as their snack and they are perfect. They don’t have a lot to chew but they love them. Only reason I didn’t give a 5-star is bc they are expensive.

    Recipe Now Contains Whole Peas

    By on

    While the Original formula was a 5-star food that I purchased frequently and had been lately using with great success for a dog with megaesophagus, the new formulation now contains whole peas. Among other concerns, it is likely to be bulkier and apt to produce copious gas in the digestive system. Peas are generally an unsuitable ingredient in pet foods. I will discontinue purchasing this product immediately, and appreciate Chewy's advance notice of the change.

    Dog Didn’t Like It

    By on

    My dog refused to eat it as topper, or alone. After 5 days without eating at all, went back to Canidae food, with a splash of stock and a spoonful of wet food from supermarket

    Coco loves Freeze-Dried Raw Dog food.

    By on

    My little chihuahua loves the Merrick Backcountry Freeze-Dried Raw Real Chicken Recipe Grain-Free Freeze-Dried Dog Food! He is very fussy and has a sensitive stomach. It's easy for him to chew, and I think he doesn't have to eat as much of it. I have tried all kinds and flavors and this seems to satisfy him.

    Picky Eater

    By on

    My 2 year old pit-bull is beyond a picky eater, I changed her dog food a few times and nothing was working. My friend recommended this brand of dog food, so I tried the freezer dried chicken on top of the food I had her on and she loves it!! Not only is she eating the chicken, she’s eating the dog food as well! Couldn’t be more happier! Plus she loves chicken!!
