Milo with VetIQ Minties

Like most dogs, Milo loves treats.

When I took Milo to the Blog Paws conference a few months ago, he got to sample a lot of treats from the Expo Center. The VetIQ team was there, and it became clear that their treats are more than just a tasty snack.

So when I was given an opportunity to receive some samples for Milo to try out, I chose the Minties (everyone needs fresh breath!) and the Skin & Coat Chews.

It’s hard to to say if the Skin & Coat Chews really had an impact on his coat. Milo naturally doesn’t shed and his fur gets a stringy greasy look when I don’t keep it brushed, which is most of the time. That said, it does seem a little more shiny than before.


If I could change anything about these treats, I would make them a bit bigger or maybe longer. Milo tends to inhale them quickly and if he could break each one into a few bites, then he wouldn’t be looking at me for another one as quickly.

The Minties I received¬†are for tiny dogs, and while Milo is small, he’s not that small. Still, these were a good size for him as they took a bit of chewing and I didn’t have to worry that he would inhale large pieces. And his breath definitely is mintie when he gives me a kiss after eating one of these treats!
