Oh Dog! I am so excited! Kong has some great new premium treats, and JAKKS Pets (manufacturer for Kong) sent me some to try out.
These premium treats are grain free and contain no animal by-products.
The Pumpkin Stix are made with real pumpkin and include vitamins and minerals. Sadly, they also contain chicken, so they are not appropriate for dogs with poultry allergies. DeDe was disappointed to not be able to try them.
The American Chicken Tenders are made in the USA with 100% chicken from the US.
The Aussie Sticks (in the upper left corner) are made with real Australian beef or lamb. They’re great for keeping teeth clean. These treats are processed in Mexico.
The Bacon Double Chews Rawhide Retriever Roll are made from US beef hide. They have a meaty flavor strip inside, and have no harmful preservatives. These treats are also processed in Mexico.
Were they a hit? Oh yeah.
I was disappointed that DeDe wasn’t able to enjoy more of these treats. I did let her have a rawhide chew. My one gripe with companies that go grain-free is they usually don’t go the extra step and also leave out the poultry. Honestly, many dogs with grain allergies also have a poultry allergy.
You may find this hard to believe, but Rumpy gets upset if DeDe doesn’t get something too, so I had to make sure she got a comparable treat. For manufacturers, that mean if I’m buying, I’m not going to buy your treats if both dogs can’t have one.
We also had a problem with the chicken tenders.
Apparently, the cats wanted to try them too.
