Wouldn’t buy again

Bought this to mix in with my dogs kibble to make it more appetizing, at the time he hated the kibble he had, and these didn’t even help! The solution was a new kibble. Wouldn’t purchase again and kind of a weird texture

dogs love it

Compared to other toppers, he’ll continue to eat his dog food and not just eat the topper. I also use as treats because my one dog gets very snacky. Very happy with this purchase.

My Dog Loves Them

I purchased these and the chicken flavor to add to my senior dogs food, because he needed protein added and the extra flavor gets him eating most if not all his food. I have already purchased another bag of each flavor, since he loves them.

The Princess Chiara Loves These

My German Shepherd, rescue, either 9 or 10, loves these along with a quarter can of Merrick wet food, like Wingalings or the Texas beef. I put a little water in her dish with the wet food to make gravy. She goes nuts when I say: "Chicken, delicious dry brown kibbles, and GRAVY!" She has excellent poops twice a day too. No problems with that.

I bought this as a topper to mix in my my dogs Back Country kibble. This freeze dried nugget product is way to hard. I have to crush them with a hammer

Amazing for food and treats

2 older dogs and a young puppy and they all love this. I wish I could find other flavors but they like these mixed in their food or as a treat. Ingredients are good as well

He loves it!

My senior furry buddy was not eating all of his meals and he just seemed disinterested in activities. He is also suffering from severe arthritis. So I eliminated the canned dog food ( a quality brand) I had been using and started using this Mix In with his current brand of kibble. Not sure which helped, the Merrick Mix In or eliminating the wet canned food but his appetite is improved to the point he now pesters me to be fed. He is also more active and is more playful and going up and down steps better!! I will now transition to the Merrick brand dog food with the freeze dried raw food . Super pleased !
