For our Chewy product review this month, we reviewed Evanger’s Wild Salmon Freeze-Dried Dog & Cat Treats. We got a big ol’ tub of them, too!
I forgot to get a picture of the label on the back, but the information over at Chewy says this:
Wild Salmon is high in protein and low in calories and saturated fat. Excellent for pets with food allergies and finicky eaters. Also available in the canned Hand Packed line. Because of the palatability and wholesomeness of these treats, they are excellent for finicky pets or pets with food sensitivities, as well as for use as a training reward or food mixer.
Grain and Gluten Free
Only 1 ingredient
What did the cats think?
Then we had to pause for a while, because Jake – who will show up if you so much as think the words “snack” or “treat”, and if you start giving out treats will show up and dance at your feet in an agitated manner – was nowhere to be found. I looked all over the house, then I looked all over the back yard, and then I raised the alarm and told Fred that Jake must have gotten out of the back yard somehow. I tromped ALL OVER the property, calling and calling for him. Fred went through the house and looked under the bed and up the chimney, and nothin’. I fretted and worried and fretted some more.
And then Jake just… appeared. Walking down the hallway, all loony-like. We later decided that he’d been sleeping in the padded cube in the corner of my bedroom, and that somehow neither of us had looked in there. I don’t know how he slept through all the calling and the shaking of the treat jar, but I guess he did!
I thought that perhaps the treats were just really filling – I mean, it says up there that they’re “nutrient dense.” But when I offered them to the cats another day, they didn’t want any of them, so I don’t know. I’d accuse them of being picky, but Stefan and Archie could never be accused of being picky, so I just don’t know. Not their thing, I guess. Fred gave the rest to George and Gracie, who ate them with no complaints – but of course I wasn’t there with the camera, because that would have been far too organized and on top of things for me.
As always, the product was provided to us free of charge; the opinions are the cats’, as interpreted by me.
2014: Gracey and Kaleb.
2013: Eyeball check!
2012: Then she hits the ground and is like “Wait. I’m a CHICKEN. I can’t FLY. Hmph.”
2011: “There are no other cats. There is only Maggie.”
2010: “That’s right, I done it, copper. I done it, and I’d do it again. I was loopy on catnip, no judge in the world is going to convict me. They’ll send me to rehab, I’ll come out clean and UNREPENTANT. So get out those cuffs and slap ‘em on, I AIN’T SCARED.”
2009: (I like to think that maybe someone who lives down the road was sitting in front of their TV and was struck with the sudden urge to grab the camera and go upstairs, and that they said “But I don’t HAVE an upstairs!”)
