Tasty Thursday #ChewyInfluencer

Today we are here to do our #ChewyInfluencer review of one of our June products from Chewy.com.



From the minute Mom opened the box, we just knew there was something fantastic in that box.




Sheesh, Mom - couldn't you at least get a clearer photo of the bag? 




OK, I tried again but I had already opened the bag.  Did I do a better job?  Here it is - Stella & Chewy's Savory Salmon & Cod Meal Mixers.  These meal mixers are part of Stella & Chewy's freeze dried raw food options.

Yes, indeed you did, Mom.  And we are THRILLED that you opened the bag because the aroma oozing from that bag sure did tickle our taste buds.  We did so much dancing around you at the smell of that salmon and cod that we almost knocked you over!!!


From the Chewy.com website, we learned (through our exuberant enthusiasm) the following:

Description:

Kickstart your canine’s kibble with Stella & Chewy’s Savory Salmon & Cod Meal Mixers Grain-Free Freeze-Dried Dog Food. Delivering a boost of nutrition and yummy flavor, it’s an easy way to pack your pooch’s diet with nutrients, probiotics and antioxidants. Based on the philosophy that pets thrive on the same diet they would eat in the wild, this recipe gives your dog what she naturally craves, and is made from 95% wild-caught salmon and cod including organs and bone, plus 100% organic fruits and vegetables—offering the benefits of raw food nutrition with the convenience of freeze-dried preparation. And to ensure the highest quality, each batch is made with care in Stella & Chewy’s own U.S. kitchen.

Key Benefits:


  • Made with wild-caught salmon and wild-caught cod along with 100% organic-certified fruits and vegetables.
  • Real raw nutrition in the convenience of freeze-dried nuggets; can be served as a complete meal or mixed with dry kibble to add variety with a nutritious boost and help entice a picky eater.
  • Formulated to mimic a canine’s natural diet; never contains grains, gluten, fillers, artificial preservatives or colorings.
  • Complete and balanced nutrition is enhanced with probiotics to aid in healthy digestion—perfect for the pup with a sensitive stomach.
  • Proudly made in the USA with ingredients responsibly sourced from trusted and reputable suppliers.
Ingredients:

Ground Salmon With Bones, Ground Cod With Bones, Cod Liver Oil, Pumpkin Seed, Organic Cranberries, Organic Spinach, Organic Broccoli, Organic Beets, Organic Carrots, Organic Squash, Organic Blueberries, Fenugreek Seed, Potassium Chloride, Tocopherols (Preservative), Sodium Phosphate, Choline Chloride, Dried Pediococcus Acidilactici Fermentation Product, Dried Lactobacillus Acidophilus Fermentation Product, Dried Bifidobacterium Longum Fermentation Product, Dried Bacillus Coagulans Fermentation Product, Zinc Proteinate, Iron Proteinate, Taurine, Calcium Carbonate, Vitamin E Supplement, Thiamine Mononitrate, Copper Proteinate, Manganese Proteinate, Sodium Selenite, Niacin Supplement, D-Calcium Pantothenate, Riboflavin Supplement, Vitamin A Supplement, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Folic Acid


Those small morsels you see on "top" of our kibble have all those fabulous ingredients - did you see?  Salmon, cod, lots of organic veggies and fruits, probiotics and antioxidants!!!  We will be using it as a topper for our kibble - or as the packaging states, a meal mixer.

We do have to warn the humans that the fish "aroma" is very strong once you unzip the bag.  But don't worry about getting your human paws all stinky with that fishy goodness.




The bag includes this 1/4 cup tool so that you can easily scoop out the perfect amount for your pups without ever having to touch the morsels.  There is a great feeding guide on the back of the package.



Dog's WeightNumber of 1/4 Cup Scoops per Day (when mixed with other food*)
SMALL DOGS (UP TO 20 LBS.)1 Scoop per Day
MEDIUM DOGS ( 21-40 LBS.)2 Scoops per Day
LARGE DOGS (OVER 40 LBS.)3+ Scoops per Day
*Reduce other food portions accordingly to avoid overfeeding
Mom says she would probably only do this once a day for us:(  So we would all get 1/4 cup of the meal mixers added to our dinner kibble.  We would much prefer a 3x a day serving, but we are so excited to get it with our dinner.

AND if you really don't want to deal with this fabulous fish, the meal mixers are also available on Chewy.com in beef, chicken, and turkey flavors.  We are sure that at least one of those options will appeal to you and your pups.

Now because Timber's stomach is still not back to normal and the problem still has not been totally identified, Mom didn't want to give him anything new yet.  So we each got to have ONE kibble for our taste test.  She believes in treating us all fairly.  Misty and Lightning think she could have slipped them a few extra pieces.



We cannot even begin to tell you how much we all loved that ONE piece.  We can't wait to be able to get our full 1/4 cup with our dinner SOON, Mom.




Timber:  Why am I not smiling?  Because ONE piece is not any where close to enough for my growing body!!!

Misty and Lightning:  Mom, we think you could find a way to add some of that to our bowls and we promise not to tell Timber.  We are pawsitive he won't smell that fishy goodness:)

All in good time, I promise.

We received this package of Stella & Chewy's Meal Mixers from Chewy.com at no cost to us in exchange for a fair and honest review.  Thanks to Chewy.com, Ms. Natalie and the whole Chewy Influencer team for giving us this opportunity.

Those look very yummy indeed! We haven't had any fish to eat around here in ages! (Ghostwriter used to cook tilapia and mashed potatoes with vegies for Joey dog when he stopped eating his kibble.)

I love when Mom adds Stella and Chewy's to our dinner. We recently discovered that fish upsets Pierre's tummy so we would opt for the chicken. ☺

When you open a bag of food or treats and they start dancing around you. They are going to be very happy. We loved how all three of you were sitting and waiting for your sample. Thanks for sharing the wonderful photos. Have a great day.

We love the meal mixers, but Mom likes to use them as training treats instead of toppers. As long as we get to eat them we don't mind at all!

#1 sometimes uses a meal mixer at breakfast time. But it is an English brand that is probably not available over your way.

Woofs,
Tommy
