    Default The treats have arrived!

    The first box of my order of stuff from zooplus.ie arrived this morning from Germany! This is mostly cat stuff -- I wanted to try some of their different wet and dry foods so got a holistic, organic chicken dry food and two types of wet -- and a cat tree is coming. But also this shipment had the dog treats and the amount of tail wagging and sniffing at the box had to be seen to be believed...

    It is all stuff that cannot be got elsewhere, and very exciting for the dogs -- meaning, disgusting for us!

    I got some treats made of beef lung, some chews of beef sinew, and -- the BIG hit -- beef tracheas. These don;t smell that bad but they are pretty disgusting and they are HUGE. So I've had to cut them down with a bread knife (no one will ever have aq slice of bread in my house again) -- once trachea is fine for three cavaliers!



    I have to say: these are GREAT! All three went mad for them and they are very long lasting but apparently far more disgestible than something like a rawhide. Inote they have ostrich tracheas which are presumably much smaller -- that will be my next order -- but they were out of them when I sent in for this batch. It will take us a while to get through the big bag though.

    The tracheas are supposed to be very low in fat unlike things like pig ears. I'll let you know if anything backfires (literally!! ) with Lily as she is my one with a dodgy tummy.

    I was thinking the same thing! I can't stand the smell of pizzle sticks so I don't think I'd be able for beef tracheas. They also have beef heads and lips on that site

    My guys go crazy for the cow tracheas. They are really REALLY hard to cut so I stole hubby's dry wall saw and a hammer and used that . They really don't smell that bad, I think the bully sticks are worse. I usually cut them in 1 1/2 inch segments and all four of my dogs are occupied

    A serrated bread knife worked pretty well but a small saw would be good!

    I didn't have enough courage to order the cow lips BTW.

    Don't think I could either Pigs ears were bad enough, but just the thought of a cow smiling at you from the box

    I noticed that they even sell freeze dried Ice-Cream!! Might try some of that on my lot!
