Product Review: True Chews Premium Jerky Cuts for Dogs

My dog says this month, we're checking out some jerky treats so we can give you the scoop. Sometimes with jerky, you're not sure what you're going to get: hard or soft treats. So, we like to try "jerky" whenever we can so we can find the best ones. So, without further adieu, we give you the 411 on True Chews Premium Jerky Cuts for dogs.


Ingredients:

True Chews come in a variety of flavors (turkey, chicken, sirloin, and duck), but we tried the turkey one. We especially like that turkey is the #1 ingredient in these. Plus, it's a fairly simple ingredient list, which we always prefer. We can break it down here: turkey, potatoes, vegetable glycerin, natural flavors, salt, distilled vinegar, natural smoke flavor, and then colored with paprika.

We're not thrilled with the salt and vinegar, but at least they're further down the ingredient list (for those who don't know, ingredients are listed in the order of quantity).

Usability:

Earlier we talked about hard and soft jerky, and these chews are soft. We like that a lot since that means no pointy, sharp edges. The pieces are big enough for large dogs, but easily torn into pieces for smaller pups. Great size and texture.



Origin:

Made in the U.S.A!

Cost:

These chews are a little on the pricey side, but you get a lot (the True Chews in turkey flavor is about $17 on Chewy.com and the sirloin flavor is only $14). The bag is 12 ounces, but we counted 39 pieces! And, as we said earlier, they're good size pieces. Depending on how you treat, these will last you awhile.

Rating:

We brought in a whole canine crew to test these out and all the dogs loved them, big time! Whenever we held out a piece, every dog would latch on to snatch it and then run off with it. They each devoured it in no time. Soooo, that said, we can say with a high degree of confidence, that True Chews are a doggie pleaser. We'll definitely be adding this to our regular rotation of doggie treats! Four enthusiastic paws up!

Product Review: Solid Gold SeaMeal Supplements for Dogs

My dog says this week we're excited to review something a little different: Solid Gold SeaMeal Supplements. Formulated to treat skin and coat, the digestive system, and immune health, these sound just like what one of our itchy family members needs.



When Billy came to us, he had terrible skin and was prone to throwing up. It's an issue we've been dealing with, trying to find the right solution. That means we're always eager to try something new.


Ingredients:

As with most supplements, many of the ingredients are things that have value and we don't fully understand what that value is. The first few items on the ingredient list here are dried seaweed meal, brewer's dried yeast, glycerin, dried potato, flaxseed, and lecithin.

The seaweed is all USA-sourced and is high in chlorophyll, iodine, and essential nutrients. It is also rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants which help support healthy skin and coat. The flaxseeds and omega oils also soothe and nourish the skin.

Since tummy and skin issues frequently go together, digestive enzymes are added to maintain a healthy digestive system. Plus B vitamins, zinc, selenium, iron and magnesium help maintain digestive and immune health.

These supplements are grain-free, and contain no gluten. So, they're great for pets with sensitivities or allergies. There are also no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.

Usability:

These chews are soft and easy to break apart. Although they could be given whole, we've been breaking each piece into four so it's roughly the same size as a piece of kibble. Then we still into into the bowl with the kibble and wet food. The pups eat them up; no issues at all.


Origin: 

Made in the U.S.A.

Cost:

The cost for autoship on Chewy.com right now is $22.79. Since these are something you'll have your dog on regularly, may as well get the autoship discount. There are 120 in a bottle, so it's a nice supply (lasting up to 8 months for small dogs or one month for dogs over 75 pounds). Not a bad price if it gets you a dog with better skin and fewer digestive issues! 

Rating:

We've been using the Solid Gold SeaMeal supplements for two weeks now and we think we've seen some improvements. We're going to update this review in another two weeks and give it a rating then. A full one-month period will probably yield the most accurate results.

Product Review: Stella and Chewy's Freeze Dried Cat Food

My dog says KitCat is taking over the blog today! We love to try different freeze dried foods, so we were eager to check out Stella and Chewy's Sea-licious Salmon and Cod Grain-Free Freeze-Dried Cat food. Meow wow!


Ingredients:

The first five ingredients in this particular recipe are salmon (ground with bone), cod (also ground with bone, cod liver oil, pumpkin seed, and potassium chloride. This food is made with sustainably-sourced ingredients and is 98% wild caught salmon and cod, organs, and bone. Lots of raw food nutrition.

Usability:

Freeze-dried foods need to be mixed with water to make a meal, but I used these nuggets as treats instead. Initially, I was concerned over the size; they looked too big for a cat. I thought I'd have to break each piece into two, but I was wrong. KitCat took each piece and was able to chew it or break it apart fine. If you give them as treats, be sure the water bowl is full.



If you choose to mix it with water for a meal, the nuggets are a little easier to work with than the traditional powdery freeze-dried food. The consistency is nice, but you can make it firmer of smoother depending on your cat's needs.

We also like that the pouch sealed easily for storage, but didn't find the "easy open" very easy.



Origin:

Made in America, in Stella and Chewy's own kitchen.

Cost:

Freeze-dried foods are always a little pricey, so you have to expect that. It's just how it is. The 3.5 ounce bag of Stella and Chewy's Sea-licious, Grain-Free, Freeze-Dried food is currently $9.49 at chewy.com.

Rating:

KitCat loves freeze-dried foods, and Stella and Chewy's Sea-licious is no different. This food was a success and earns four paws up from our resident feline!

Product Review: Nutro Wild Frontier Pate Cat Food

My dog says we put KitCat to work this week and asked that he test out Nutro Wild Frontier Pate for cats. What did our homekitty think? Let's see...




Ingredients:

We got the variety pack of the Nutro Wild Frontier Pate, which included two flavors: chicken recipe, and chicken and duck. It's a grain-free food and there are no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives, so that's a plus.

The chicken recipe has chicken, chicken liver, and pork broth as the first ingredients; whereas the turkey has turkey, chicken liver, and pork broth.




Usability:

These trays are marketed as "perfectly portioned" and snap apart so one side can be used for breakfast and the other side for dinner.


I thought this was a great idea, but was skeptical that the sides would snap apart cleanly. I also worried that snap would tear the foil and cause it to peel back on both sides. However, I was pleasantly surprised. The tray snapped apart easily and the foil was easy to tear to separate the two sides (I still do it gingerly, just in case, though). In short, it works and works well! 



We really like the two portions, so the "leftover" side doesn't require refrigeration. It makes mealtime easy and when I have someone watch KitCat it makes mealtime simple for them, too! 

Origin:

Made in the U.S.A.

Cost:

A case of 12 twin packs (that's 24 portions) of the Nutro Wild Frontier Pate is currently $17.09 on chewy.com. That gives you 6 packs (12 portions) of the chicken and six of the chicken/duck combo.

Rating:

KitCat really liked the Nutro Wild Frontier Pate. He preferred the chicken recipe (he'll eat duck, but it isn't his favorite). The chicken is available on it's own, too, so it's not necessary to order the variety pack if your kitty has a preference on flavors, too.

Since we got this variety pack, we have reordered the Nutro in the salmon and tuna recipe. KitCat really likes that, too. There's also several other recipes, as well, that we plan to test out. We give the Nutro Wild Frontier products four paws up. We can't wait to try the other flavors!
