    Dogs love it

    By on

    A friend recommended that I get this to encourage my dogs to eat their kibble. They now wolf down the kibble with the mixer in it like they are starving (trust me, they are NOT). I would definitely recommend it.

    The Good Stuff in the Kibble

    By on

    Our dog Peroni loves these mixers, he makes us laugh because they get targeted first in the bowl, then the kibble. The mixers literally make Peroni happy.

    Finley licked the bowl clean

    By on

    My little Yorkie is one of the most finicky eaters around. Just when I think I’ve found something he likes he turns his nose up at it. Fed this to him moistened and mixed with his other food and bingo....the bowl was licked clean.

    Gets my dogs to eat their dry food

    By on

    I sprinkle some at the bottom of the bowl and pour the dry food on top. My dogs don’t leave any food behind now. Works great to get them to eat.

    Dogs love it but too expensive

    By on

    All 5 rescue dogs loved as a topper, but this is way too expensive for such a small bag, and I purchased the largest bag!

    Encourages eating

    By on

    When our girls get stressed out these are our go encouragement to keep them eating. When moving or a kennel visit comes to pass these little nibbles (as we call them) keep the nutrition train on the tracks! We just sprinkle a couple pieces of these nibbles over their regular kibble and before you know those bowls are empty! They hold a very special place in our 10 year old beagle/ pointer mixes heart. Now that is also true for our unplanned 1 year old pointer/ Dalmatian mix found on the side of the road in Florida. Whom loves not only these nibbles but her unexpected family, puppy and human alike! Yeah for shelter puppies and side of the road puppies who never had to go to a shelter!

    Great supplement

    By on

    Our little Bichon-Maltese mix has always been a picky eater, but he loves the freeze-dried bites in Merrick's Lil' Plates. This package of just the freeze-dried bites lets us mix more of them into his food, and he eats much better now. It reminds me of a little kid looking for the marshmallows in Lucky Charms!
