Duck Monday #ChewyInfluencer

Meowllo everypawdy, and Monday too. Yep, it’s another miserable Monday but me has somethin’ yummy to tell ya’ ‘bout, so dat makes it a little better, right? As pawrt of da Chewy blogging family we get to try different purroducts each month and tell you all ‘bout them. And this month was no different. Mommy chose one purroduct with each of us in mind. Of course we both would eat either purroduct. Dat bein’ sed, mommy chose fur me da Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost Duck Minis Cat Treats.

Me likes duck, so mommy thought this would be a good choice. They are freeze dried in little pellet shapes. Most are bite size fur da majority of kitties; but they are easily broken up into a smaller bite or crumbled to put over a meal. One thing to keep in mind with these purrticular treats is dat they contain other ingredients besides just Duck. Here’s da ingredient list:

Duck (including ground duck bone), turkey, turkey liver, turkey heart, pumpkinseeds, carrots, apples, butternut squash, ground flaxseed, montmorillonite clay, dried kelp, broccoli, apple cider vinegar, salmon oil, mixed tocopherols, rosemary extract, blueberries, dried chicory root

Me is purretty picky ‘bout da size of me’s bite and shape too. Mommy offered me a couple of these as a treat, but me didn’t show any innerest. So she added them to me’s noms and after breaking each bite in two, me gobbled them down. They are purrlenty tasty. They also come in chicken fur those of ya’ dat like a less gamey bird. Here’s some key benefits taken from da site:

So me gives these all 4 paws up. They taste good and be filling. Now me will say dat you purrobly don’t wanna be addin’ water to these, they don’t reconstitute very well. They be a little spongy, and dat’s after a few hours. Yep, takes dat long. So what did mommy think ‘bout these treats? Let’s ask her.

Thank you baby. I’m really glad you like them. Since changing your diet, I’m trying to keep a variety of proteins in your plate. I like that there are no preservatives, corn, or grains inside them. And I really like that they are made here in the U.S.. As with most cat foods these days they do include a multitude of veggies that you don’t need, but that’s in almost every food these days. So all in all I give the Instinct Raw Boost Minis Duck treats 2 thumbs up.

Sooie! #ChewyInfluencer

Meowllo everypawdy and Monday too. We were actually excited fur Monday to get here this week. We told ya’ last week dat sis Lexi seems to get sick late Furiday after da VETs close and then starts feelin’ better late Sunday; just in time to not have to go to da VET on Mondays. Well it happened again this weekend, so we kuldn’t wait fur Monday to come rollin’ in so sissy wuld start feelin’ better. And sure ‘nuff, she’s duin’ much better today. While talkin’ with others, we’s found out this is quite common among our older and/or sick furiends. Good days and bad ones seem to come and go in a cycle. Da really good thing ‘bout sis Lexi’s bad days this weekend is dat she was still eating and able to keep most of da noms down. And dat brings me to today’s posty.

As #Influencers, we get to try a lot of great purroducts; and this month was no exception. As you all know me recently changed me’s eatin’ habits to a raw freeze dried diet. It’s yummy and me’s a lot healthier. So when da opportunity came to try out sum freeze dried liver treats we was all over it. We received a 2 ounce package of Primal Freeze Dried Pork Liver Munchies. Now there’s only 1 ingredient in these treats and it’s pork liver. Yep liver from da pig and nuffin’ else. Primal uses only pork raised in da USA without antibiotics or added hormones. These treats are grain and gluten free with no preservatives or added salt or sugars. Primal has a variety of flavors in a variety of textures.

#Primal Pork Liver Munchies

Now let me tell ya’ a little sumfin’ ‘bout freeze dried foods and treats in general. Some are kinda soft and easily break or crumble and some are really hard, similar to a kibble. Mommy sez it’s mostly cuz of da protein source. This is one of da reasons we have sed dat switchin’ your cat from kibble might be easier with freeze dried noms. Dat bein’ sed, da Pork Liver Munchies we received are on da harder side of freeze dried. Livers usually are. Da pieces are kinda big and needed to broken up into smaller bite size pieces. So let’s get to da taste testin’.

Dezi smells the Primal Pork Liver Munchies

Mommy broke up a piece and offered it to me and sis Lexi. Sis Lexi immediately grabbed a piece and started gummin’ it. It wasn’t too long and she spit it out and walked off. It was a little hard fur a mature girly with no teeth. Well since sissy spit it out there was no way me was gunna try it. So off me went too. A few days later when sis Lexi was nappin’ and mommy and me was havin’ some special alone time she offered me a few bite size pieces. Me looked ‘em over and had a good sniff and then took one. Yep me had furgotten ‘bout sissy spittin’ it out and was ready to give ‘em a try fur me’s self. Me chewed and then switched it to da other side of me’s mouth and chewed sum more. Finally me spit it out too. Dat munchie was still in one piece. It had a few extra holes, and was a bit slimy now but still looked like it did when me started chewin’. Me picked it up and repeated da earlier steps and spit it out again. Thinkin’ maybe me got a bad piece, me took a fresh one from mommy’s open hand and started chewin’ away at it. It didn’t take me long to spit it out too. Me was done. No more lookin’ sniffin’ or chewin’ fur me. These things were too hard and there was no pay off. Me never got anythin’ to swallow. What’s up with dat? Ifin me can’t get it to me’s belly then it ain’t food or treat accordin’ to sissy, and me has to agree.

Sissy sed we needed to be fair and truthful as always in our review, so we both give da Primal Pork Liver Munchies 1 paw up cuz we were innerested enuff to try them. But since neither of us kuld actually chew them up enuff to swallow, we won’t be buyin’ any. Now me knows you wanna know what mommy thought, so here she is.

dw-DeziprimalporkliverDSCN6010 (640x480)

Thank you baby. I wish you and Lexi would/could have eaten them because liver is a great source of protein. I love the fact that there’s nothing in them but the pork liver. There’s no bad or controversial ingredients in them. That’s always a plus in my book. Altho they are a bit hard, they are still fairly easily broken into smaller pieces. And because it’s just pork liver, the treats are great for mixed households. Doggy and kitty can both have the same treat at treat time. The bag is pretty full so the price of $6.99 is fair. But because y’all didn’t actually eat them, I can only give them 1 thumb up.

dw-DeziprimalporkliverDSCN6009ribedit (640x480)

Thanks mommy. So there ya’ have it. Da Primal Freeze Dried Pork Liver Munchies are a great treat fur kitties and doggies. But purrobly not a good choice fur da kitties with teeth purroblems or no teeth. They’re a bit hard so not everykitty is gunna like ‘em but most of our peeps will luv them cuz of da goodness of ‘em. You kuld add water and purrobly soften them a bit, but once it’s in a bowl it’s no longer a treat to us. Chewy has lots of great products so we’re certain you will find somethin’ to meet your needs. There’s always free and speedy shipping on orders of $49.00 or more and a flat rate shipping fur all others. You can set up an autoship so you never run out of your furries favorites again. And don’t worry you can skip cancel, edit or delay any shipment. We are linkin’ up to da #ChewyInfluencers review hop hosted by The Golden Woofs. Check out what others sed about da purroducts they tried this month.


Does your furry like liver?
