Review and Giveaway: Zuke's Jerky Treats

While Bruce will eat anything, Neeko and Faolan are known to be treat snobs.  I am nearly always on the lookout for soft treats that appeal to them, and contain quality ingredients.

Zuke's Jerky Naturals and Genuine Jerky treats fit the bill.

The Jerky Naturals all contain the specified protein as the primary ingredient, along with apples, veggies, and beneficial herbs.  They are also grain-free, and yeast-free, which is important to me because of Bruce's yeast allergy.

The herbs are rosemary, turmeric, and sage.  Rosemary is a known antioxidant, and is widely used as a preservative.  Sage is a natural antimicrobial, and is said to be good for gum and digestive tract health.  Turmeric has gained notoriety because it has been proven to alleviate pain, particularly arthritic and cancer pain, in both humans and animals.

The Jerky Naturals are decent-sized, soft, and easily broken into smaller pieces.

They have a strong, but not unpleasant scent, which makes them more appealing to dogs.  Unlike many other soft treats, they do not feel greasy, which is a bonus for me.

The Genuine Jerky treats have a traditional jerky texture/feel to them.  They can be broken into smaller pieces with just a tiny bit of effort, if one wishes to do so.

The Barbecue Beef Recipe treats smell amazing, and I was tempted to try it myself!  Based on the quality ingredients, I would be comfortable doing so.

Neeko is now a huge fan of the Genuine Jerky treats, and tried to mug me once she realized I had some in the pocket of my scrub top...

Yes, she really is that big, and she really wanted the jerky.
In summary-appealing, meat-based, grain-free treats that contain quality ingredients.  What's not to like?
