Both of our dogs have big appetites and we have to help them watch their weight, so we are always on the lookout for dog treats prepared from premium ingredients without artificial fillers. We were pleased to discover Healthy Elements™ treats which are made in the USA and Canada from natural ingredients and do not contain any fillers, by-products or artificial flavors and colors.
Healthy Elements treats are available in two forms: crunchy and soft/moist. Crunchy treat recipes include Chicken and Cranberries, Lamb and Apple, and Whitefish and Blueberries while moist snacks are offered in Salmon and Apples and Chicken and Carrots recipes.
We received two bags of Healthy Elements treats to evaluate including the Salmon and Apples moist formula and Lamb and Apples Crunchy Snacks.

When we offered the treats to Tiki and Irie, they liked both formulas; Tiki seemed to prefer the moist Salmon and Apples treats while Irie liked them both equally. They scooped up the first offering and were soon begging for more. They both agree: four paws up for Healthy Elements!
