Merrick Jerky Chip Dog Treats from @Chewy.com Product Review

Jeffie, Rudy and Rosie are always ready to try new dog products. So they were enthusiastic when Chewy.com asked if they'd like to give some Merrick Jerky Chip dog treats a taste test.  With Chewy's super fast shipping, in just a couple of days Jeffie got a chance to scare the FedEx man and take delivery of their package.

Merrick Jerky Chip Treats are oven-baked, all-natural dog cookie treats filled with protein-packed jerky chips as the first ingredient, made from real deboned chicken, beef, lamb, or salmon. Unlike many dog treats, Merrick Jerky Chip Treats are grain-free and gluten-free with no corn, soy or wheat. And, like all Merrick food and treats, Merrick Jerky Chip Treats are made in the USA with no ingredients from China. 

They come in four flavors: Real Beef, Real Chicken, Real Lamb + Potato, Real Salmon + Potato.  We received a 10 oz bag of Real Chicken Recipe treats.
Rudy was thrilled to get the first taste.
Deboned Chicken, Dried Potatoes, Peas, Garbanzo Beans, Tapioca Starch, Pea Fiber, Chicken Fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols), Dried Carrots, Brown Sugar, Dried Egg Product, Dried Apples, Caramel Color, Gelatin, Yogurt Powder, Salt, Cultured Skim Milk Powder, Mixed Tocopherols (a preservative), Rosemary, Sage, Thyme.

Rosie demonstrates excellent treat begging focus.
The dogs really do love these dog treats!  They're generous in size (about 2" in diameter) and a bit high in calorie per treat, so I've been rationing them.  However, that's the only cautionary note.  I like that there are good healthy ingredients and that they're made in the US.

Merrick pet food and treat recipes use USDA inspected deboned meat and fresh produce for industry-leading levels of protein, glucosamine and chondroitin.  Merrick never imports ingredients from China.  All their food is handcrafted in their Hereford, Texas kitchen with ingredients from farmers they know and trust. In 2012 Merrick earned organic certification under the USDA National Organic Program for all of their Texas based manufacturing facilities.

We first reviewed Chewy.com online pet products over 3 years ago. We loved them then and we still do.  With over 300 brands of pet food and other pet products ready to ship with their super fast front door service, what's not to love.  Living in a rural area, I especially appreciate that I can purchase brands and products I can't find locally.

There are lots of reasons to like Chewy.com
  • Fast shipping to our front door (free if our order is over $49)
  • Over 200 brands to choose from in pet food, treats, and supplies
  • Great prices and frequent sales
  • Easy to navigate web site and terrific customer service
  • Chewy.com gives back via their Shelter and Rescue Network
Final verdict:  Lip smacking good!
