How long will this 1 lb bag last to feed my 95 lb German Shepherd? how many cups is a serving?
Answer by ChewyMay 01, 2019
The longevity of the bag depends on the daily feed recommended based on your dog's weight. Premium brand dog foods are made with real ingredients that allow your dog to absorb nutrients efficiently. This helps the food last longer and prevents your dog from overfeeding. There are approximately 3-4 cups depending on volume.

Answer by ChewyFeb 26, 2019
The mini nibs are approximately the size of a blueberry.

Easy to serve, quality product

I’ve tried different methods for feeding my dog a raw diet. The single ingredient freeze dried mini-nibs is the easiest, and I the one I’m most happy with. The company seems dedicated to quality, and my dog’s healthy wellness (and small/tidy droppings) seem to confirm that. We’re happy.

my dog is a picky eater and I use these as treats!

I love these for my little dog. Only recommendation is if you have a small dog like me and a little fry mouth, break them a little bit apart before giving. It can get stuck on the top of their mouth but that’s just the nature of the dog treat!

My pup loves these!

Tried these on a recommendation from a dog breeder. I was buying the small bags of Vital Essentials but find this to be more economical and my dog loves them.

Dog loves them!

I've been using these as a topper and I haven't seen my dog so excited to eat in months. She has developed anxiety and it has been a struggle to get food to entice her ever since but she is loving this so far.

My dogs love these

I've been adding these in to my dogs' food and they really enjoy them. So far no tummy troubles. A little expensive but it is a pretty large bag.

Nutritious & Easy

I love using Chewy as my dog’s food supplier. The service is impeccable, and they carry a wide variety of products. I love the ease of using the freeze dried meats because they are nutritious and easy to give to my dog; and she likes them very much. I also get my large bag of the dry dog food from Chewy and again, there are many different brands and recipes from which to choose. I would always recommend Chewy to anyone looking for great services, selection, and value.

Great for training treats

My Goldens love these for high value training treats. I like using freeze dried dog food for training so it can be counted as part of their daily meal ration. and this has good ingredients without a lot of filler.

good training treats

I use these for training treats rather than a normal meal for my dogs. They love this so much. The ingredients are simple and the bag is huge. One bag lasts for quite a bit for my two dogs. I sometimes put 3-4 pieces in their food just as some extra treats. My dogs love Vital Essentials!!!

My dogs love them

These are the perfect training treats and my dogs love them. They are very nutritious and not full of a lot of garbage ingredients like many other less expensive treats. My dogs will do just about anything for these treats.
