Real Meat Treats

Wholesome, natural, real-meat treats offer healthy choices dogs love. With so many treat options to choose from, here are some things to consider as you make your selection:

1.) Real meat is easily recognizable – no guessing needed. Look for one or two whole-meat ingredients, such as beef, venison, or lamb. Our Soft Tenders in Chicken or Turkey & Duck varieties are a great choice. Natural preservatives such as Vitamin C or mixed tocopherols are fine, but avoid artificial flavors or colors.

2.) Real meat lets you easily select a treat that suits your dog's dietary needs. The ingredients in real-meat treats are recognizable and usually limited in number. Therefore, if you know your dog is sensitive to chicken, you can choose a duck or beef treat instead.

3.) Real-meat treats can help support oral health. Look for tough or chewy textures that scrape teeth and stimulate gum tissue as your dog chews.

4.) Real-meat treats make a great training tool. The rich flavor of real meat creates a high-value treat most dogs will eagerly work for. To prevent weight gain, use very small pieces and remember that treats should not make up more than 10% of your dog’s total diet.

With real meat, you’ll give your dog a treat she’ll eagerly anticipate and enjoy every time. Explore our extensive treat variety here.
