Zuke's #FueltheLove Blog Hop - Product Review & Giveaway

  I've got Zuke's
Actually, many of my blogging dog pals have Zuke's.   We are all barking to spread the word about the Zuke's #BarkFriday  #FueltheLove Twitter pawty!
The #BarkFriday #FueltheLove Twitter pawty is on November 29, from noon to 1:30pm Eastern time.   There will be pawsome prizes from Zuke's, so be sure to RSVP!
 
I'm a "huge" fan of Zuke's. (Well, at least as huge a fan as a 14 pound dog can be.  BOL!)     Zuke's Mini Naturals treats were some of the first treats I received as a puppy.   I still love Zuke's treats.   Mom gives me Zukes because they are healthy treats that are made in the USA.   Now that I am all grown up, I have eaten several varieties of Zuke's treats.  They are ALL yummy!
The Mini Naturals are the pawfect size for training.  Each Mini Natural is only 3.5 calories.  I know I got a lot of treats when I was in puppy kindergarten, so Mom cut them half to control the calories even more.   When a puppy is only a few pounds, every calorie counts.  BOL!

Ingredients:
(Wild Rabbit, Salmon, Peanut Butter, Pork, Duck, or Chicken - depending on flavor), 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.
The next Zuke's treat I was given as a puppy was Hip Action.   I was 7 months old when I had surgery for both of my knees.   The vet said I would need to take Glucosamine supplements.  
Hip Action contains Glucosamine, and it's yummy!   It is a furrific treat for dogs who have arthritis.  

Ingredients:
(Beef, Chicken or Peanut Butter - depending on flavor), Ground Rice, Ground Oats, Malted Barley, Gelatin, Maple Syrup, Vegetable Glycerin, Glucosamine Hydrochloride, Cherries, Blueberries, Lecithin, Salt, Ground Sesame Seed, Alfalfa, Phosphoric Acid, Rosemary, Turmeric, Garlic Powder, Sorbic Acid (a preservative), Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Egg Shell Membrane Meal, Chondroitin Sulfate, Zinc Sulfate, Manganese Sulfate, Sodium Selenite.

Just to let you know, the Z-Filets are larger than the little piece in the photo.  Mom tears off little pieces for me because I am small dog.  She is always watching my weight.  These soft meaty treats are a delicious snack!  They were one of the few things that Baron could eat during the first month after his throat surgery.   His mom buys a few bags of Z-Filets every time she goes to a pet supply store.   I just know Baron is hoping to eat my Z-Filets.  BOL!

 Ingredients:
(Venison, Beef or Chicken - depending on flavor), Potatoes, Maple Syrup, Garlic Powder, Salt, Phosphoric Acid, Rosemary, Turmeric, Sage, Sorbic Acid (a preservative), Citric Acid, Mixed Tocopherols.
  
People are always saying that cookies are fattening, well Zuke's Skinny Bakes are not!  The crunchy treats are less than 10 calories each.  They are easy to break in half, so 2 dogs can share one treat.  Baron usually doesn't eat cookies, and I normally end up with both my cookie, and Baron's cookie.  I was out of luck this time - Baron likes the Skinny Bakes, and he ate his cookie.

Ingredients:
Cherry n' Berry Crunch: Oatmeal, Pearled Barley, Rice Bran, Oat Fiber, Cane Molasses, Berry Blend (Cranberries, Cherries, Blueberries), Oil Blend (Canola oil, Sunflower oil, Olive oil), Natural Flavor, Rosemary Extract, Mixed Tocopherols (a preservative).

Peanut Butter n' Banana Crunch: Oatmeal, Pearled Barley, Rice Bran, Peanut Butter, Bananas, Potatoes, Oat Fiber, Cane Molasses, Oil Blend (Canola oil, Sunflower oil, Olive oil), Natural Flavor, Rosemary Extract, Mixed Tocopherols (a preservative).

Pumpkin n' Sweet Potato Crunch: Oatmeal, Pearled Barley, Rice Bran, Pumpkin, Sweet Potatoes, Carrots, Potatoes, Pea Fiber, Cane Molasses, Oil Blend (Canola oil, Sunflower oil, Olive oil), Natural Flavor, Rosemary Extract, Mixed Tocopherols (a preservative).

  1. The pawsome thing about Lil' Links, Jerky Naturals, Z-Filets and Z-Bones is that they are grain free and free of the most common allergens that humans have. As you'd say, Pepper, "That's really impawtent for some families."

    1. Thank you for pointing this out! I must have forgotten to mention it because Mom has a cold and it makes her brain foggy.
      Hugs,

  5. You have such a good and smart momma - cutting the treats in half during training. Mom always cuts or breaks treats up into little pieces for me too, because I get so many treats when we're doing training.

    We're thinking about you and your momma and hoping your surgery monday goes smoothly and it's something really minor. We know your momma is probably worried (humans get that way). Paw hugs to you and your mom!
