Whew. That December…man, it really just gets away from you doesn’t it? It’s been FOREVER since I wrote a post.
I’ll be back after the first of the year (holy crap, it’s almost 2014) with some post-holiday posts, but tonight I want to introduce you to a new treat.
Any guesses as to what it is?
Either we’re on a freeze-dried treat kick lately or free-dried treats are all the rage.
Teton’s pals over at Chewy.com sent us these Evanger’s Raw Freeze-Dried Treats (Beef Lungs) to test in exchange for a review. Chewy.com carries over 200 brands of the highest quality dog and cat treats. It amazes me how many brands they have that I love and trust. It’s always exciting when we get to try something new!
Evanger’s has a complete line of dog and cat products including dry food, canned food, and treats.
I don’t think Teton had ever tried beef lungs before recently, but boy does he like them. Perhaps the pungent aroma has something to do with it.
These freeze-fried treats are straight up beef lungs. And that’s it. No preservatives, fillers, flavors, or other nasty things. And you don’t have to refrigerate them!
I know what you’re thinking. That’s disgusting.
I’m not going to lie to you. It kind of is. They’re stinky and a little greasy and if you stare at them too long you might start thinking about where they came from, but here’s the thing…one look at your dog’s face when you pull the unopened container out of the box from Chewy.com and you’ll feel like the best Dog Mom (or Dad) on the planet.
Because, you see, even before opening the sealed plastic container Teton had stars in his eyes.
Mom. Mom. I love you, Mom. You’re the best, Mom. Can I have one of those beef lungs, Mom?
They just smell that good.
Evanger’s line of freeze-dried treats comes in a variety of flavors including wild salmon, beef tripe, beef tongue, beef hearts, and beef liver. The 3.5 oz container ranges in price from $6.36 to $9.99.
Check out the entire Evanger’s line at Chewy.com and make sure you peruse the rest of Chewy’s assortment. I’ve got my eye on these gems…
See you next year!
Happy holidays and happy tails…
Did you see my recent Instagram of the necklace my sister made for me?
Crafty, ain’t she?
She also made Teton this bandana a few weeks ago.
Zap! Pow! Zoom! Captain Fuzzy Butt to the rescue!
Teton’s got this thing for freeze-dried treats. His first exposure to them was when Chewy.com sent us Orijen free-range bison treats. Then, a few weeks ago, we were lucky enough to receive another freeze-dried treat to test and review, Halo Liv-A-Littles!
Halo has a ton of great products ranging from treats to canned food to dry food to supplements. And, holy crap, Ellen is a co-owner. I’m sold!
Ok, but seriously. This is good stuff.
You know I love a short ingredient list.
There’s something to this whole freeze-dried thing. Teton can smell freeze-dried treats from a mile away and is glued to my side drooling for as long as it takes me to give him
I love that these treats are versatile. Yep, I went there. Who says treats can’t be versatile?
You can feed Halo Liv-A-Littles as-is, you can break them up into tiny training treats, you can put them in an interactive treat-toy, or you can easily break them into smaller shredded pieces and sprinkle them on top of your dog’s dry food.
Doesn’t it look like freshly cooked shredded chicken? (Teton picked all the Liv-A-Littles out and ate them first before eating his dry food.)
Liv-A-Littles come in three flavors – Chicken Breast, Wild Salmon, and Beef. We received the chicken from Chewy.com but I can pretty much guarantee that Teton would love all of the flavors.
Teton is a great chewer, but it’s on a whole different level with these treats.
