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

    By on

    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.

    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.

    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! ;-)

  • Picky Cat

    By on

    I have a very finicky cat that likes some freeze dried chicken treats. The ones he likes are difficult to find in stock so I tried these. He ate them! So hopefully, these won't become hard to purchase.

  • My cat loves these treats

    By on

    This is probably the only kind of treats I would feed my cat. He only has a couple a week, but absolutely loves them. He is a picky treat eater but this does the job!

  • All 6 LOVE THESE

    It's unusual for my 6 to agree on anything but they all love these treats and the neighbor's cat now hangs around the door just to see if I will give her some.

    My cat loves these. She stares at the cupboard at times hoping we'll give her some. I like them because of the good ingredients.

  • Surprised my big eater said no

    By on

    I have two cats and my one cat who eats just about everything did not like this treat. My fussy eater ate it but not every time. I'm disappointed as I thought they liked every freeze dried treat under the sun.
