Late last year after a health scare with one of my dogs, I decided that it was time for a major change in her diet. When I realized the junk that they were putting in commercial dog food and treats out there, I was appalled. I should have been a better pet owner. I suppose it was so much easier to go to the store, purchase exactly what they enjoyed and be done with it.
So I made it my mission to scour the Internet for information. I eventually found the right kind of food that my dogs should be on which was the B.A.R.F diet but what about treats? My dogs love to snack throughout the day. I obviously needed treats that were nutritious but (and this was the clincher) something that didn't have them running off in the opposite direction if you know what I mean.
I went to Pet People here in southern California since they tend to focus on foods that are actually good for your dogs (and cats too!). I came across some treats called Canz Real Meat which sounded interesting enough. I know my dogs enjoy meat so I read the ingredients. I picked up the chicken and venison flavor package and it said chicken, venison, chicory lecithin, sea salt, mixed tocopherols and garlic. It also listed on the packaging that they guarantee that these treats are 95% real meat. They also use animals that are not only farm raised but free range as well! The protein was listed at 25% which was excellent. That was good enough for me. I picked up one package at close to 6 dollars for 4 oz. Yes it is expensive but if they liked the treats, I'd live with it.
I fed it to them as soon as I got home and guess what? They loved the Canz Real Meat! The package was small and they wanted the entire bag so I had to limit it to 10 treats per day. I went back to Pet People and bought the treats this time in beef and it was a hit as well.
I highly recommend Canz New Zealand Real Meat Healthy Gourmet Dog Treats for all the pet owners out there. Not only do they come in Chicken & Venison and Beef but they also have them in Lamb, Lamb & Liver, Venison by itself and Fish and Venison. They also have them in larger packages of 12 oz. Cats aren't left out either here. They have treats for them as well.
