Hi, y'all! I'm super excited to be doing a review and a GIVEAWAY for my favorite treat company ever, Zuke's! I know lots of my furiends are big fans of Zuke's too, which is why I'm so happy to be hosting a giveaway for four, you read that right, four, bags of of Zuke's Mini Naturals (one of every flavor!) to one lucky winner.
Here's a bit about Zuke's:
Anyone who’s experienced an aha! moment can usually recollect with giddy excitement the exact date, time and place that the proverbial light bulb went off. And often, that flash in time is the inception of a great idea. For Patrick Meiering, it was 1995 during a hike in the Colorado Mountains with his typically energetic companion, Zuke. Noticing that Zuke had become exhausted, Patrick broke off a piece of his energy bar and tossed it to him. Zuke perked right up. And there it was, the moment Patrick realized that pets need healthy, all-natural treats, just as much as people do.
The Zuke’s adventure begins
From the beginning, it has been essential that Zuke’s treats are formulated with only natural ingredients providing the specific nutrients your cat or dog needs. But early on, our fledgling team realized Zuke’s was about much more than healthy treats. Instead, we consciously created a company focused on exploring and adventuring with your dog. About the love you get from your cat. And the pursuit of a healthier life that makes pets and people happier. This is what motivated us then, and what motivates us today. Zuke’s wants to keep the adventure going by giving our pets something to wag about.
A commitment to caring
Come to the Zuke’s office and you’ll see dogs curled up under a workstation or bounding in our backyard creek, and we love to go home to our cats snuggled in on the couch. We’re passionate pet lovers just like you. Our pets are a great source of motivation and give us so much, so it’s only natural that we want to give them the best. That means the finest meats, premium grains, fruits, vegetables and oils available. All natural ingredients, all sourced in the USA (except our rabbit and venison which come from New Zealand), with final products made in the USA . The commitment to our products stems from the love and care we have not just for our own pets, but for dogs and cats everywhere.
As Zuke’s grows, it’s more important than ever that we remain true to our original intentions – to ensure that the passion we have for our pets shapes the products we make, the company we continue to become, and world we live in.
Zuke's makes the following treats:
- Hip Action
- Jerky Naturals
- Lil Links
- Mini Bakes
- Power Bones
- Natural Purrz (cat treats)
I was sent all four flavors (Chicken, Salmon, Rabbit and Peanut Butter) to review. Mom seems to have some kind of dog treat (and collar) addiction, and she's always buying new different brands of treats, but we almost never buy the same thing twice. The exception to that is Zuke's Mini Naturals. They are my favorite commercial treat (my favorite treat is hotdog) ever, and are very high value. Not to mention they're only 3 1/2 calories per treat! Mom usually breaks them into halves or even fourths during training. Rabbit and Salmon are my favorite flavors.
The ingredients are also stellar! Check em out (this is the salmon variety):
Salmon, Ground Rice, Ground Barley, Malted Barley, Gelatin, Vegetable Glycerin, Tapioca, Natural Flavors, Cherries, Sunflower Oil, Lecithin, Salt, Phosphoric Acid, Rosemary, Turmeric, Sorbic Acid (a preservative), Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Mixed Tocopherols.
Zuke's also donates to the Dog & Cat Cancer Fund, a program that helps needy families get treatment for their animals suffering from cancer, offering grants to help scientists conduct research and raising awareness about this horrible disease.
|Yes, Mom spelled it out in treats. No, I didn't get them all. Pfft, stupid diet.|
Made in USA
Great customer service
Lots of products for both dogs and cats
Only 3.5 calories per Mini
Donates to Dog & Cat Cancer Fund
Treats have a smell, but not a strong one (not even the salmon flavor)
Great for allergy pups like me
Great price for quality and amount
They do get a little crunchy if you're like Mom and you tend to leave treats in your pockets all day, but that's hardly a con!
Overall, I give Zuke's and Zuke's Mini Naturals my highest rating of 5/5 stars and 2 paws up! I would recommend them to all my furiends. You can find them on Zuke's website, in pet stores and on Amazon for about $6.
Zuke's very generously offered one of y'all one bag of each flavor (so four bags). All you have to do is comment below telling me your best trick (you will not be entered into the giveaway if you don't comment on this), and leave you email address if you don't have it available on your blog. Sorry, this giveaway is only open to US residents.
