I have 3 cats. The 2 I thought would devour these would have nothing to do with them. I thought they would love them since they hunt in the wild. My one, a Siamese, can't get enough of them!! I mix all the varieties together and she ALWAYS saves her minnows for the last.
My theory: My 2 know what fresh from a hunt is....as for my Lily...she can have the satisfaction of hunting and still remain dignified. <3
My cats favorite Healthy treat!

I’ve purchased Liver and freeze dried minnows between the two my cat likes the liver the best he still enjoys the minnows but definitely harder for him to get use to. I really like total is one ingredient liver and I know liver is good for my diet I can imagine it’s great for His to!
Loved by our raw-food-eating cats

My cats eat raw food only and it's been hard to find a treat that they love. These are so popular with them both, that they will beg for them whenever I enter the kitchen.
High in iron for anemic kitties
on Jun 2, 2018
Caught my cat eating her litter a few times, and I've learned from past experiences that this can be a sign of feline anemia... The clay contains bentonite, which is high in iron. Liver is also a good source of iron, so I gave these a try and now she eats liver treats like they're crack. Some pieces are large so I just crush those with my thumb. No more litter eating and a happy girl!
Need smaller pieces

Highly recommend! Our cats went nuts for these treats. We had to reorder right away and I just put them on auto ship so we don't run out.
Very Large Pieces

We decided to give these treats a try for my three male kitties with this months autoship. When I first placed these treats in front of them they attempted to eat them, but it just seemed to be too large for them, they're definitely not bite size for a cat by any stretch of the imagination. The next few times I tried to give these treats to my cats, they wouldn't even attempt to eat them anymore and our dog ended up getting some free cat treats. I won't be buying these again, but my cats have thus far not been huge fans of anything freeze-dried. However, it may not be the the treats themselves, just my picky, spoiled boys.

Cats love them. I don’t. They stink. The cats told me to get over it.
I never let these run out

I used to sprinkle FortiFlora on my cats' food to entice them to finish everything in their bowls, but I didn't like fiddling with the packets, so I switched to crumbling these duck liver treats over their food instead. There can be quite a few crumbs in the bag since the dried liver is so delicate, so it might be a bit of a pain to feed them only as treats, but my cats gobble up all of their food with the liver sprinkled on top. There's always at least one bag in our house.
Dogs love these too!

I purchased as a treat for my three shephard mixes because they LOVE all things duck, but because these are treats, I wanted something small so I didn't have to break into pieces. They loved these! They also love the Vital Essentials freeze-dried duck patties and recognize the bag when it arrives.
