Pedigree Cheesy Bites
Advantages: good price, our dogs love them, loads in the bag
Disadvantages: none for our dogs
It is very rarely that our dogs both enjoy the same treats but these cheesy bites from Pedigree are a true winner with our two.
We have a Pomeranian dog and a poodle puppy and the information on the reverse of the pack tells us clearly how many treats are allowed by the dog according to its weight. Pom is allowed up to 50 of these in a day whilst Pepper, being more lightweight, is allowed 16 of them. Given their own way they would eat a whole bag a day each because they love them so much.
hubby paid 79p for 70g and they come in a pack as shown in the Dooyoo picture. Caution - do not rip open like I did as they will all end up all over the floor. There is a little scissor symbol near the top but I didn't spot these in time and spend a good half hour picking the little bites up cursing that there were so many in, what looks like, a small pack. I am guessing here but I would say that there are about 100 in t total?
They are small, oval shaped and smelly - I am pleased the canines like them because they smell nasty to the human nose! The outside ring is beige whilst the inner is brown, they are about the size of my wedding ring in circumference and about as deep as a slice of bread.
The ingredients include the following -
- derivatives of vegetable origin
- meat & animal derivatives
-vegetable protein extracts
-fish & fish derivatives
- minerals, seeds, oils, fat and herbs.
sounds tasty does it not my friends?
There are additives too including antioxidants, vitamin A, technological additives, ferrous oxide and monohydrate.
These do not make any sense to me and sound rather revolting but apparently there is plenty of protein, vitamin E and calcium in them which makes me feel a little happier.
Each treat has 2 calories but has fat plus sugar so I guess this is why there is a limit on how many a dog can eat per day.
We try to use these treats for training purposes but as soon as they are trained they will not do certain actions without having their share of this positive reinforcement!
I would recommend these as a special treat because our dogs just love them and you get so many in the pack which doesn't cost an arm and a leg. I am a bit concerned about what they contain but I feel that way after reading the ingredients on our human food if the truth be known.
I trust Pedigree products though and as long as they stay at reasonable prices I will continue to buy them even though they don't smell good :)
Summary: great treat at a good price
