One of my two cats is a FIEND for minnows (they are his special treat for training or really good behavior!), however, he wanted nothing to do with this brand. These are larger than the other brand, and I even tried breaking the minnows into smaller pieces. He left the pieces in his bowl, and I ended up just discarding them. I'll go back to the first brand. I'd gotten these because it is more economical, however, no point, if they won't eat them!
A healthy treat for your dog!

Our dog LOVES these tasty little snacks! (And "little" is indeed the operative word....they are very small. But they are, after all, minnows!). They are a good source of essential fatty acids and they don't smell "fishy" at all....at least to me. They are definitely a low-fat/high protein snack and have less than 90 calories for the entire 1 ounce package. Highly recommend this product.

My pup LOVES these treats!! Goes crazy for them. The only thing I wish was different was the feeding instructions. I would prefer to know how many exactly I can give my pup. Also, the price is kind of expensive for the amount you actually get. But my pup loves it so it’s good in my book

I ordered a 3 pack of these Vital Essentials minnows. I just discovered that I was charged for 3 packs of 2.5 ounces each, but I only received 2 packs of 2.5 ounces and 1 pack that is only 1 ounce!
Minnows a Real Win!

My vet suggested that I might want to switch my dog to a fish diet. Riley loves the mini minnows, of which I give her several after she’s done something that merits a reward.
A great single-ingredient treat!

Please don't tell my cat that these are supposed to be dog treats -- he'd be very unhappy if he had to share them with the dogs. I don't buy treats that have gross-sounding chemical ingredients, so I was delighted to find a safe and healthy treat for the cat. He's happy, too!
These pack a punch for their small size

My dog loves these minnows. Given my dog is a large dog, she gets a handful for an evening treat. I will continue to keep the minnows among her treats as she really likes them.

Tried this treat for both my chijack & my picky cat. They're a real hit! Dog loves them in his treat ball. I noticed that when I put bits of freeze-dried chicken & salmon in Mr. Picky's bowl along with broken up Minnows, he goes after all the Minnow pieces first. So, I guess he likes them too!
healthy and tasty!

All three of my dogs love these treats! I love the idea of a limited ingredient diet for my pets as there is no need for filler ingredients in kibble/ treats. These are also perfect for training becaus they can be cut up into smaller pieces and not break apart!
This will be your dog or cats new favorite treat!

The ingredient list is short; minnows! The processing method is simple; freeze-dried. The result; your pets new favorite treat! My cats love them and they come running when they hear the bag. I love that they are healthy and natural and help to keep their teeth clean and their guts happy. This is now the new must-have for my fur babies.
