Dachshund Nola Reviews: Primal Jerky Chicken Chips

 Hey, everyone! Today I have a review for you courtesy of the always fabulous Chewy.com. If you've been reading us for a while, you know we're huge Chewy fans and always highly recommend them!


This time we're reviewing Primal Jerky Chicken Chips Treats. The single-source protein treats are made with organic, USA raised chicken and have just three ingredients: organic chicken, organic honey and sea salt.






They're slightly bigger than a half dollar, and come in a 5oz bag. The Duo adore them; in fact, they've become Pike's nighttime/go-to-your-crate treat. They have no unpleasant order or residue, and the bag is resealable.
They're a bit difficult to break into pieces small enough for my dogs, and I'm going to be upfront and say that they are insanely expensive at around $16 per 5oz bag, especially if your dogs are larger than mine. I could buy roughly two weeks worth of raw food for that much, so I can't say I'd personally buy them.







In a nut shell, they're tasty (according to the Duo; I can't say I've tried them myself ;)) with good ingredients, but are very, very expensive.

Hugs,
Dachshund Mommy

Feeding Raw

     We are on day 3 of raw feeding. :) The dogs love it, and *fervently knocks on wood* there's been no issues. I'm doing more of a prey model diet vs. the BARF diet at this point, although that might change. They're only getting non-organ chicken meat for the first two weeks to make the transition as easy as possible, and once we've gotten past that I will slowly start adding in organs and different meats.
Nola is being switched from a home cooked diet, and Pike is being switched from Orijen Puppy. They're getting about 4oz and 5oz a day, respectively. They're fed in a crate, and once they're done the crate and bowl are bleached out. So far they've had chicken wings, chicken backs, and today's menu consists of chicken legs along with a few chunks of breast meat to disguise their heartworm pills.

WARNING: Raw meat photos ahead. A little gross, but so are so many aspects of dog owning. ;)
