About Stella & Chewy's
I switched back to these and my dog loves them. Not sure why some people are saying they are too hard etc....they are freeze-dried and it says on the back you can REHYDRATE them. I break mine apart for my dog and add water so it's a softer texture for her and add veges.
I have to agree with some recent reviews that this food is not the same as previous orders ! I have a very picky chihuahua and it was a nightmare to find the food that he would eat . We tried this chicken and he loved it ! I’ve repurchased it 5-6 times and it was perfect with patties intact . The last bag I received was nothing like before half of the bag is dust and the patties thats left intact are very dry almost cardboard and old smelling. When you touch the patty it turns into dust .My dog refuses to eat it he sniffs and walks away . I will have to throw away almost $60 bag of dust . My dog was enjoying this food before so it’s definitely different now or very old ! Just checked reviews and i am not the only one noticing the difference!
After all the raves I heard about Stella/chewy dog food and my expectations for Shelby’s reaction , I was disappointed as was Shelby. I bought two different dinners, one chicken and one beef. She eats it at times but not much. This would not do to maintain her nutrition needs.
For some background - we have a mini bordoodle. I wish others included their dog breed in reviews, so starting with that. She is SO SO SO SO picky about food, and on top of that, her little tummy is so sensitive. She had no interest in kibble and if we did find one she liked okay, it inevitably would give her diarrhea for 1-2weeks which was an obvious nightmare. I had been cooking for her for many months when it was just becoming too much. I set out to find a packaged food with good ingredients that wasn’t kibble or wet food. We tried this and few other foods and she liked 2 we tried. This is BY FAR her favorite. She absolutely loves it and eats it all within a couple of minutes. It would previously take her anywhere from 12-24 hours to finish any food we put out, so this is amazing. I find the ingredients to be awesome it doesn’t affect her stomach negatively. Total win!
I have purchased this product a few times before and the dog enjoys it. I use them as training treats and break off chunks. This time the patties are significantly drier than previous bags. They are so dry that they crumble into nothingness immediately when I press into them. This is obviously not ideal when using for training. In past bags I could easily tear the patty into small solid chunks. Unfortunately I got the big bag so now I have a lot of expensive crunchy chicken sand to get through… lol
I used to get Primal but for some reason they were upsetting my senior dogs stomach. He never has a problem with stella and chewys! I find it easier to blend up in a blender and use a scooper so I dont have to break them up each time.
My dog loves these and has liked every flavor I have ordered for him. My cats love the food too and sometimes I give them some to keep them out of his food. May consider ordering some for my cats.
Our dog loved Stella & Chewy's frozen fish patties - but this freeze dried chicken is terrible
thought these would be the "ANSWER" to my mini doodles reluctant eating habits. they were for awhile but she is back to refusing to eat. will try less expensive alternative b/c I throw an awful lot away ...uuurrrggg!
Our two whippets absolutely love these things. We have tried chicken, lamb and beef and all have been a hit. We crumple them up as toppers for their food and break off little bits as treats when they catch and bring their nerf frisbee back to us.
