I’m a big believer in eating real food.
When I cook for myself, I cook from scratch. I use as little processed foods as possible in my ingredients. I even make some of my own pantry ingredients. You’ll never find a recipe here that includes a cake mix as an ingredient!
But that doesn’t mean that I never eat junk. In fact, I go for easy restaurant take-out as often as I cook from home.

With my dog Milo, I feed him quality food, offer him meat and cheese tidbits off of my plate and give him occasional dog treats.
I feed Milo healthy Blue Buffalo dog food and he gets limited treats. I avoid rawhide completely, but otherwise try a lot of different treats. While I try to give him treats made from healthy ingredients, I don’t follow a strict diet when it comes to treats.
One thing I had never given him was freeze dried treats, so I jumped at the chance to get a free sample of Stewart Pro-Treat freeze dried liver treats.
Pro-Treats come in beef, pork, chicken, turkey, bison, duck and lamb. I received a 3 oz package of turkey liver.
According to the package, 3 oz of freeze dried liver treats is equal to 12 oz of raw liver. You’ll want to limit how much you give your dog at a time or you could be overdoing it.
Like most packages, the contents settle a bit so your initial reaction might be that the package isn’t full, but there is a lot of food packed into this package.
So what did Milo think?
He loved them. He has to sit to get treats from me, so he plopped himself down the second he smelled the liver as I opened the package.
Speaking of smell, these treats really do have a liver smell. So if you hate liver, this might not be the right treat for you. I really like liver, but I still found the smell a bit unpleasant.
I also noticed that the treats aren’t uniform in size. Some of the pieces might be a bit big for small dogs. If you have a larger dog, some will be perfect in size and some will be training treat size.
That said, Milo really does like them.
If you have a dog that has food allergies or is on a special diet, these treats would be a great solution for you.
Does your dog like freeze dried treats?
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
I’ll be honest, I haven’t noticed freeze dried treats here in Croatia but I do commend your decision to feed your dog natural food. Currently my husband works for a dog food company that produces completely natural food for dogs and cats and our cat loves it. I keep telling my husband he should push the owners into expanding overseas but it’s a complicated process at the moment due to the nature of the food.
Your Milo is so cute! And so well behaved:) My dog would climb up my body and just take the treat for himself! Thanks for linking with us at the Teach Me Tuesday Linky Party! I hope you’ll have the time to party with us this week, as well.
