These are okay. My cat loves them, but you have to pick the skins off the pieces first, and the bag seems like it's the crushed, dusty ends of better pieces, like a bag of chips that got crushed. There weren't many whole pieces compared to the volume of the bag. I found this same kind of treat at my local members-only warehouse store. They cost me $2 more there, but the bag is four times this size, there are no skins, the pieces are whole, and the pieces are quite large, too. I will buy those from now on, not this brand. It was a much better price for a higher quality product.
This turns out to be a terrible and dangerous treat for your cats. Here is why. It is dehydrated with the skins on. Sounds great but the skin turns to dried hard non edible leather like and sharp on many most pieces. I had to put on rubber gloves to protect my fingers while trying to salvage any of the dried salmon. I bought 4 pack of this, the largest size. I did notify Chewy and they reimbursed me. I also notified the company and they said they would notify quality control. The chicken treats by the same company are very good. Just skip the Salmon for safety reasons.
my cat goes nuts for almost any kind of treat, so i don't feel like i can comment on the taste, BUT i would like to highlight my issue with the treats: the skins. a lot of the treats have the skin still attached, and it's very hard and sharp. i ended up dumping all of the treats out onto a plate and pulling all of the skins off at once so i wouldn't have to deal with it later. not to mention, some of the treats would be small enough that after taking the skin off you'd have almost nothing edible left. it's a pretty big hassle when you can buy the same sized bag from other brands (for relatively the same price) that don't require a bunch of work just for me to get use out of it lol
Interesting find, this batch that I bought had alot of skin on pieces and they were way too hard for my cats to bite through so I looked closer and tried to break it with my fingers and really could not I was scared they might choke trying so if the pieces had skin on I tossed them out. I did order another one coming today, hopefully it doesn't has skin on. But my cats really likes the meat part of it.
This is my second time buying the Pure Bites freeze dried salmon treats for my 1yo cat. The first time purchase was great and Clementine loved these treats, she still does but for me this is a 2-3 stars. I did 3 only because I bought them before and liked them. My most recent order of these treats, the pieces were very big and hard to break apart for my cat to be able to EAT. The biggest issue I have thought is the weird metallic odor that comes from the bag when i use these. I actually get a small headache from it. it's so strange. I'm not sure if i'll buy these treats again.
I got the 'old' style packaging. The pieces are awfully big, and because of this she won't eat them. If I break it up and sprinkle it on her wet food, or use it as a mixer, she eats it right up. I might try these one more time, otherwise I'll go back to the chicken.
My cat loves these. She now goes to the pantry and paws at the door when she wants a treat. This is good as she's losing some weight and we want to help her put some weight back on. Not sure if this will help that, but she does love these and nothing else as far as treats go.
I buy these a lot! Two problems... QUALITY and packaging!! They are NOT the same as they used to be. My cat would leave them laying on the floor half chewed! One package was CRUSHED. Cat hide treats around the house if it's powder. I have not cld Customer service yet bc I'm sure they will replace bc they are great. This product, not so much!!
My cat won't touch it & he loves salmon. Buyer beware. From other reviews, some cats love it, so think about types of treats your cat really likes before you purchase.
I used to love PureBites until they new packaging and the product quality went way down. The pieces all have skin which is really hard. I'm afraid my cat will choke on it. I've found bones in some and some are really oily. I will no longer buy these.
