Tasty Tripe-y Tuesday - #ChewyInfluencer

Have we got a tasty treat to review for you today!!!

For our first review for Chewy.com this month, we selected a product from one of our favorite vendor's - Dr. Tim.  We LOVE all his products so much, and if you click HERE, you will find that Chewy.com carries a lot of them.  This is a new one for us and we are very excited to try it.

So what's in the bag, Mom?

Dr. Tim's freeze dried treats - we chose the natural clean tripe, but there are other options available at Chewy.com - turkey chicken, oxtail, beef, beef liver, and tripe.  You can find the choices HERE.

The treats are real, pure, with no extras, 100% USDA inspected meat from Wisconsin.  And they are for DOGS and CATS.

Are you wondering what is in them?  That's an easy one to answer : 100% beef tripe.  Tripe is the stomach of a cow and is rich in essential fatty acids and protein.  It can also help to clean teeth, aids in digestion, and may even increase stamina.

If you don't want to chew the tripe, you can get your human to soak it in cool water for five minutes to make it tender and juicy.  Of course, be sure to remind your human to wash their hands and any dishes they used thoroughly with soap and water.  And don't forget to be sure we have clean and fresh water.

We put some on a plate with a quarter so you could see the various sizes.  The directions say to give 1-2 treats per 10 lbs. of weight per day.  They can be used as treats or as a tasty topping to our meals.

So let's get to it with a video.  We got to try the tripe treats two times.  You will notice that at least ONE of us has manners and doesn't gobble up the treat in a nanosecond.

No doubt about it - those treats are very good.  We aren't so sure they will do much for our toofers because we don't spend much time chewing, but we know they have a lot of other great reasons for us to enjoy them.  Mom wants to add that she is usually pretty squeamish about tripe because of the odor.  BUT these tripe treats really don't have a bad smell at all, probably because they are freeze-dried.

So, Mom, in our video you said, "Maybe later."  Is it later yet???? And remember 1-2 treats per 10 lbs per day.  We are pretty sure that means we qualify for more than just two a day.

Thanks to Chewy.com and the wonderful ChewyInfluencer team, in particular Ms. Natalie and Ms. Kristin, for sending us this bag of treats at no cost to us in exchange for a fair and honest review.  We LOVED them.

Timber's Thankful Thursday

Let's hop along with Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!!!

Mom said she thought it would be a good idea for me to think about what I am thankful for in my life.  I told her that was EASY!!!

I am thankful for my sweet sister Misty who lets me chew on her, steal her toys, run zoomies together, and just hang with me.

I am also very grateful for my BIG brother Lightning who lets me lie on his paws while he is trying to nap, who teaches me all sorts of good (and mischievous) things, who lets me share his place on the a/c vent, and who does his best to keep me out of trouble.

Who wouldn't be thankful for such a wonderful pack!!!

What are you thankful for today and every day?

Tuesday Talk - #ChewyInfluencer

It is always fun to get an unexpected package in the mail.  A few days ago Chewy.com sent us a surprise package so that we could try a special product that would be good for our health.

Dr. Lyon's line of products has introduced three new products, one of which we received.  We have Dr. Lyon's Liver Supplements. There are also two other supplements, one for calming and one for healthy skin and coat.

We decided that we would let Lightning be the one who gets to try the liver supplements.  Mom thinks he would also be a great candidate for Dr. Lyons Calming Aid supplements too, and she will probably order some of them too.  But for now let's talk about the liver supplements.

 As we all know, for both humans and canines, the liver is a vitally important organ in the body. The liver's main job is to filter the blood coming from the digestive tract, before passing it to the rest of the body. The liver also detoxifies chemicals and metabolizes drugs. As it does so, the liver secretes bile that ends up back in the intestines. The liver also makes proteins important for blood clotting and other functions.  So it is very important to keep one's liver healthy.

From the Chewy.com website, we found this information about the Dr. Lyon's supplements:


Help support your dog’s liver health with Dr. Lyon’s Liver Support Soft Chews Dog Supplement. Guided by science and inspired by nature, they’re formulated with herbal extracts and key nutrients known to help maintain a healthy liver, including silymarin—a natural compound found in milk thistle—plus turmeric extract sourced from turmeric root, and n-acetyl cysteine—a naturally occurring amino acid. N-acetyl cysteine is added to help promote normal liver function including detoxification, to support overall health for your dog. Plus, these soft chews are naturally flavored with cheese and chicken liver so they’re a delicious treat you can give as daily maintenance.

Key Benefits

  • Helps promote liver health with key herbal extracts and nutrients formulated to assist in maintaining normal liver function.
  • Formulated with silymarin, a naturally occurring compound sourced from the milk thistle plant, plus turmeric to help support the liver’s normal detoxification process.
  • Contains n-acetyl cysteine to work synergistically with the herbal ingredients to help promote healthy liver function in dogs of all sizes.
  • Naturally flavored with cheese and chicken liver so they’re a supplement dogs can actually enjoy; give daily according to your dog’s weight.
  • Comes in a convenient container with an easy-to-open lid to preserve maximum freshness.

Now Lightning is a very healthy dog, no issues that we know of (other than his intense fear of moving things like bikes and skateboards), but he is also our "senior" dog since he is now SEVEN years old.  So why not take whatever steps one can to keep him healthy!

That sounds like a good plan to me!!!  AND because I am a 70 lb. hunk of muscle, I get to have 3 1/2 chews per day!!!  A 90 count bottle is fairly reasonably priced AND your first item will be 50% off at Chewy.com.

Maybe one day Misty and Timber will get some liver supplements too, but for now they are all content to get another kind of tasty treat from Mom.

We received this product at no cost to us and no obligation to share our thoughts with you.  But we think Chewy.com deserves a shout out for another great product AND for its thoughtfulness for its customers.
