Product: Freshpet Dog Joy Fresh Chews

What it is: refrigerated dog chews

Manufacturer: Freshpet, Secaucus, NJ

DogTipper Review: We’ve recently been reviewing Freshpet’s line of refrigerated dog food and treats like their Dog Joy Fresh Bones and Select Roasted Meals.

Today, we are sampling Freshpet’s Dog Joy Fresh Chews. These jerky-like slices of buffalo ligament are made from 100% natural ingredients: free-range buffalo and natural flavorings. (The company identifies the natural flavorings used in Freshpet products as “a proprietary blend of ingredients such as vinegar, celery, lemon juice, and natural hickory.”

The strips are “roasted in their own juices” and like the rest of the Freshpet lineup, contain no artificial preservatives and so must be refrigerated to maintain freshness.

The nutritional analysis of the strips breaks down as:

Minimum crude protein: 80%
Minimum crude fat: 2%
Maximum crude fiber: 3% and
Maximum moisture: 12%.

The chews are hefty enough to keep a power chewer (like our Irie) occupied for a good while and both Irie and Tiki really liked the taste.

We’d give Dog Joy Fresh Chews a paw’s up for their simple, nutritious ingredients and for their lack of artificial preservatives!

    Tiki and Irie look like they can’t wait to try the Dog Joy Fresh Chews. :) I like that the treats are very low in fat and contain free-range buffalo.

  • Alexis

    I love the looks on their faces! Especially Tiki’s grin! :)

    Is there any federal legislation on the books requiring adequate pain killer meds to be administered after any surgery on animals, such as spaying/neutering, etc………even for the castration in cattle raising, tail docking in sheep, etc…….if not, could this be one of this organization’s goals, enforcement, and publicity?
