Science Diet Fruity Snacks for Dogs from @Chewy.com | Tasty Tuesday

 We love Chewy.com, so when they asked if we'd like to try some new dog treats, we woofed in the affirmative.   With their usual speedy service, Chewy.com had a package of Hill's Science Diet Fruity Snacks in our paws in just two days.

Available in several varieties, we received the Apples and Oatmeal dog treats.  

This attractive ziplock package contains quit a quantity of small, crunchy dog cookies.  They really do look like little (human) cookies and have a good wholesome smell.

Rosie wonders how to open this bag of dog treats.

According to Chewy.com, Hill's Science Diet Fruity Snacks with Apples and Oatmeal dog treats are delicious, all-natural treats made from only the best ingredients. Naturally preserved, with no corn, artificial colors or flavors. Made with apples, natural sources of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients.

Rudy thinks these smell very good!  (And no, he did not take any.)

Ingredients:  Ground Wheat, Oat Flour, Dried Apples, Oatmeal, Chicken Meal, Flaxseed, Beet Pulp, Molasses, Calcium Carbonate, Salt, Chicken Fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols and citric acid).

Nutrient Content:
Protein  17.%

An 8.8 oz bag of Fruity Snacks retails for $4.99 at Chewy.com, but is currently on sale for $4.79.

Jeffie, Rudy and Rosie really love these treats.  After the first sniff, even picky Jeffie was eager for more.
After one taste, Jeffie was eager for more of these tasty, crunchy treats.

I like these treats because they're small enough to be great training treats.  They're crunchy and good for my dogs' teeth and gums.  They're made in the US with natural ingredients, too.

Jeffie and Rudy waiting their turn for another.  They love doing dog treatreviews!

I also like the story behind Hill's pet food:

The Hill's® pet food lines began in 1939. Dr. Mark L. Morris Sr. believed certain health conditions in pets could be managed through carefully formulated nutrition. His ideas were visionary in veterinary medicine, and he soon had the chance to prove his theory.
A young blind man named Morris Frank asked Dr. Morris if anything could be done to help his guide dog, Buddy, who was having kidney health issues. The result of Dr. Morris' efforts was the nutritional formulation that became the first product in the Hill's Prescription Diet line of therapeutic pet foods, and the world's first pet food designed for kidney health. Soon after, Hill's Pet Nutrition was founded and the field of clinical nutrition sprang to life. That first therapeutic dog food evolved into Hill's® Prescription Diet® k/d®, which is still sold today.

We frequently order from Chewy.com.   I love their selection of over 300 brands of pet food, pet treats, pet toys and other pet supplies.  In fact, I got a little carried away with their holiday sale on dog toys, but that's another blog post!  Though Chewy.com is headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, they have warehouses located throughout the US, so usually orders are delivered in just a day or two.  Plus, I love Chewy.com's Shelter and Rescue Network.

We're pleased to give Hill's Science Diet Fruity Snacks and Chewy.com our highest recommendation!
