September Chewy Review

When making our Chewy review choice this month we were very interested in 

EVO Wild Cravings Herring Formula Dog Treats

Product Description

The wolf was designed by nature to hunt and thrive on a diet rich with the nutrition from animal proteins, not grains. Inspired by the ancestral diet, EVO Wild Cravings Herring Formula Dog Treats are low in carbohydrates and packed with high-quality herring to promote a lean, conditioned body. With EVO's grain-free, protein-rich treats, you can satisfy your dog’s natural cravings and reward the wolf within.


Herring, Menhaden Meal, Peas, Pea Fiber, Pumpkin, Tomatoes, Sunflower Oil (Preserved with Mixed Tocopherois, a Source of Vitamin E), Menhaden Oil, Carrots, Apples, Potassium Chloride, Minerals (Zinc Proteinate, Iron Proteinate, Copper Proteinate, Calcium Iodate), Glucosamine Hydrochloride, Cottage Cheese, Chondrotin Sulfate, Dried Chicory Root Extract, Ascorbic Acid, Vitamin E Supplement, Vitamins (Betaine Hydrochloride, Vitamin A Supplement, Niacin Supplement, Calcium Pantothenate, Beta Carontene, Vitamine B12 Supplement, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Riblflavin Supplement, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Thiamine Mononitrate, Blotin, Folic Acid), Menadoine Sodium Bisulfite Complex

Mom's research indicates that I need to be eating foods and treats that are low in carbohydrates
Carbs can contribute to yeast growth and mites like to feed on yeast. Based on the product description,
 EVO Wild Cravings Herring Formula Dog treats fit that bill as they are high in protein and low in carbohydrates. 

Key Benefits
  • High-quality herring helps maintain lean muscle mas
  • No grains, no potatoes & no gluten added to maximize protein concentration while limiting carbohydrates
  • Made with highly-digestible ingredients
  • Excellent palatability

They were a little bigger than we expected 
but still an OK size.
They are a crunchy treat - easy crunch, not hard
 we like our crunchy treats to be small 
so Mom breaks them up for us

They break very easily but do crumble a bit

When reading reviews, some complained about the smell
They do have a fishy odor but it is not overpowering to Mom's sensitive nose. 

All three of us had to sniff a second before we first tried them, but we decided they taste pretty good.
The only downside is the crumbliness when Mom breaks them up

Whatcha waiting for Mom?
Give us one of those treats.

    I am sure you could deal with the crumbs just as readily as the bigger crunchies!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  2. You could avoid the crumblies by insisting she gives you a whole one! teehee!

  3. I have had those treats before and I liked them. I like most fishy treats even if Ma says they are stinky. The stinkier the better, I say. Glad you like them and sorry they are crumbly.

  4. Mmm! I hope you enjoyed your treats, Mabel! I'll have to put some of those on my next Mr. Chewy order. :)


  5. Oh boy we love fishy stuff
    Peace baby

  7. Well it is nice to know that they break easily. I got these treats once that Lee felt were to big and the only way she could break the was with a hammer. But you know my teeth had no problem. Your EVO fishy sound good.
    Thanks for being a friend

    I am not a big fish pug, either - especially if it smells too fishy. I have been known to consume it now and then, though. These look like they are worth a try.
    Thanks for a good insightful review.

  9. LOVE the mini shapes :-) We love Chewy! ENJOY! Golden Woofs.

    Let us know when you received your special package :-)

  10. Well....if you don't make try to make them SMALLER, they won't crumble all over the place....just sayin'. You had us at herring.

  11. We do love most any kind of fish. Mom is a little sensitive to fishy smells too but they don't bother us at all. Thanks for the review - gives us an idea for something new to try.

  15. Our Mama also worries about the way fishy treats smell, so we don't get to try them too often....These look pretty nommy tho!!

  16. Those treats look yummy. Glad they aren't too fishy. My assistant has a weird, over-sensitive nose, too.

  17. Those treats look pawsome. Thats nice your mom broke up your treat so small fur you. Our mommy is such a wimp that she has to wrap up our treats in cloth the she uses a hammer to break them up cause she cant break the with her hands! If the incredible hulk is single, he would be the pawfect man fur our mommy. Lol.

  18. Oh my did I miss you all while my peeps were away.
    If I were at your house I'd jump on the cabinet and knock those treats down on the floor for you
    Hugs madi your bfff

  19. Chewy is awesome. We get Ritas food from there. Looks like that as a hit!

  20. Those treats from Chewy look yummy! My mommy breaks my food into tiny pieces with a pill cutter, (to make treat pieces) and sometimes they get crumly too.
    Yummy ,, yummy
