  • Poor Packing Of Merchandise

    By on

    Not sure how a perfectly straight cut in the bag with contents spilling all over the box could be packaged and sent out If it ripped in the box it would have been jaggered not straight cut?

  • Kitty LOVES these treats!

    By on

    Kitty loves these treats!!! They're nice and soft, no sharp/hard pieces like we have found in other freeze-dried brands! They're perfect for crushing into his food when trying to persuade him to eat more for his insulin injections! So happy we found these!!

  • Not too crazy for these

    By on

    I have 6 cats and not one will eat these. I tried mixing with water and still no go. I have mixed them with my other brand freeze dried raw food and they will eat them that way. Still looking for a healthier treat for my babies.

  • Winter treats for my dogs

    By on

    I use these treats when we hike in winter. It's a small bag, so I can put the whole thing in my pocket, and it's easy to grab the treats with my mittens or gloves on.

  • Both cats love this treat

    By on

    My two cats absolutely love them - some pieces are not as soft as others, but it's not a problem if I break it off before giving it to them.

  • So simple, so purfect

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    I have 2 ferrets, 2 black cats, a Bengal/tortie mix, a rat terrier and a chihuahua-and this is the only treat they all have eaten and enjoyed. They all have their own treats they individually enjoy; but put them all in a room together and they'd all LOVE to have these as their snack. So simple. One ingredient. Infinite love.

  • This is one of my go-to "I'm gonna spoil you" treats

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    Freeze dried treats are always a big hit and this is no exception. The only thing I recommend is breaking the pieces up -- 1) it helps me save money for a multi-cat household and 2) the pieces are quite hard and they don't moisten up as quickly or softly like Primal's treats.

  • cat treats

    By on

    None of my five cats liked this product. That is to say it was not a good product - our cats are picky eaters. Every order I've made with Chewy (and that's a lot) I have been more than satisfied with their service. I highly recommend them.
