  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Must be tasty!

    I actually bought these for training my puppy and she loves them! Our cat does like them as well and he normally doesn't eat treats.

  • 11 of mine enjoyed it!

    I'm not new to the Merrick brand. In fact, it's a favorite in our household. We currently feed our cats Purina One as it fits best for our cats' digestive needs, but before that, we were using Merrick's grain-free cat food and loved it. Just one of the cats had issues with it and trying to separate the food wasn't working out so well so ultimately we had to stop using it for his sake. So I was thrilled to try their brand of treats; especially since these are freeze dried treats and our cats LOVE freeze dried food and treats. The snack pouch is pretty small in size, but it's fairly priced. $3.29 may seem pricey for the size treat pouch you get, but freeze dried snacks and food are more expensive I'm not new to the Merrick brand.

I love that they don't have a ton of ingredients, so they're a healthy treat, but most importantly, all my cats LOVED them! I mean they went crazy for the treats as I passed them around and were begging for more. I'd say they were a winner! Needless to say, we have found yet an amazing treat that the cats enjoyed that gets 10 paws up from all our furry feet! … more

  • Trying to get her healthy!

    By on

    Trying to get my Pixiebob kitty to eat healthy and she is way too picky, she turned her nose up at these treats, which makes me so frustrated because I really want her to eat healthy stuff! BUT my other kitty inhales them so no harm no foul! I am going to keep trying! ;-)
