Our First Reviews, Part 2

#ChewyInfluencer

Well, here we are again. As I told you in Part 1, we decided to try two products for the March review. For “Part 2”, I was looking for a treat that I could give Shadow that wouldn’t aggravate her reflux issues. Through trial and error – and a lot of experimenting – I have found that she has the least trouble with soft treats without grains. But she misses the hard treats that she has to chew in order to savor and really enjoy.

I wanted to find a grain-free, made-in-the-USA treat that she could really enjoy. So when I found the Fromm Four-Star Nutritionals Grain-Free Parmesan Cheese Recipe Dog Treats, I figured they were worth a try. So, this is how they’re packaged:

 
The product description reads as follows:

“A grain-free gourmet treat, oven-baked with fresh Wisconsin parmesan cheese, vegetables, and a touch of oregano.”

Key Benefits:

Grain-free

Wisconsin parmesan 

Fresh vegetables and fruit 

100% USDA-inspected ingredients 

Made in Wisconsin in a USDA plant

These treats are about the size of a quarter and hard as a rock, but my girls don’t care. They crunch away and “vacuum” up the crumbs likety-split. (So fast I couldn’t even get a picture of my slower eater, Shadow.)  I took a couple of the treats out of the bag and took a picture of them. They actually look pretty tasty to me as dog treats go …  

The very best part? They DO NOT aggravate Shadow’s reflux! I’ve given her several of these treats over the past week and she hasn’t made that god awful sound she makes when the reflux is acting up on her. (And Ducky, my canine “Life Cereal Kid who eats anything” likes them too.)

Have you tried Fromm’s Four-Star Nutritionals dog treats? Head over to Chewy.com and get some for your dog.

Our First Reviews, Part 1

#ChewyInfluencer

Since this is our first review as a #ChewyInfluencer, please forgive us if we mess it up a bit. And I should warn you ahead of time that I took all my photos with the camera on my iPhone. My only computer that accepts SD memory cards is in Islamorada, Florida, being fixed by my brother so I can’t use my regular digital camera for reviews right now.

Anyway, I’ve been wanting to try The Honest Kitchen’s bone broth mix for a while but just kept putting it off. So when I received my first email from the Chewy.com Blogger Program with all the items available for review this month, I was delighted to see the bone broth mix on the list. I sent Sydney my request for it (and the product in my next review) and received it a few days later. Of course, the package arrived at the same time as my older brother so I never got around to testing the products until this past week.

Here’s what the package looks like….

 And the mix looks like this when you open the can…

So, I made a cup of the broth according to the directions, let it cool down some, and poured a quarter-cup’s worth into a bowl and set it down on the kitchen floor for Shadow to sample. She sniffed at the bowl and walked away. So I dipped a finger in the bowl and offered my finger to her to lick. She licked the broth off my finger a few times and then decided she’d had enough. But not to worry. I live with the canine version of Mikey, the Life Cereal Kid, who will eat anything. I called Ducky into my testing kitchen and placed the bowl in front of her….

 She Likes It!

Well, I decided to experiment with Shadow’s reaction to the bone broth this morning. I had saved some of the broth in a small container and put it in the fridge. I poured a little of the broth over her breakfast before I put her bowl down for her. At first she just sniffed at the food, but then she went back to the bowl and ate her entire breakfast!  Yay! Now I know what to add to her food when she’s being finicky.  Now I can honestly say that both of my dogs like The Honest Kitchen’s bone broth mix.

I don’t normally do reviews – I don’t want to monetize my blog – but after talking to the folks at Chewy.com’s Blogger Outreach department, I decided I could handle working with them. I’ve been buying Shadow’s and Ducky’s food from Chewy’s since shortly after our vet said she had IBD back in January of 2015. Their Customer Service department – in my opinion – is THE BEST ANYWHERE.  Chewy sent me one can of The Honest Kitchen Bone Broth in exchange for my honest review of the product. I was not otherwise compensated.
