What’s on the menu for today? Evanger’s Beef Hearts Freeze Dried Dog & Cat Treats – THAT’S what! These treats are 100% pure beef heart – no grains, gluten, soy, or other ingredients at all. That’s what I love most about these treats. They are also made in the USA, which is awesome.
The downside? They are HUGE! We had to break/cut them into smaller pieces, but even after that the kitties had a difficult time eating them because they are so hard. They are jerky-like treats, which none of us are used to. The package did say that you can “reconstitute by putting in water for 3-5 minutes,” but that didn’t make a difference. I actually left a few sitting in a bowl of water for a couple of hours, but they were still very hard.
Even though the kitties may have had a hard time eating these treats, their enthusiasm for them was not affected. They thought they were delicious and were begging for more.
I definitely think breaking the treats into smaller pieces is a must. I was worried about giving them the full-sized pieces for fear they may choke or hurt their mouths trying to eat the treats. Let me just show you how big they really are…
