Christmas came early this year! Eddie received a package of Zuke’s Power Bones to review this weekend.
Zuke’s Power Bones were the first treat that Zuke’s ever created. Filled with nutrients to keep your dog going, it’s like an energy bar for your dog. Available in chicken, peanut butter, and beef, Zuke’s Power Bones are packed with protein, carbohydrates, antioxidants and coconut oil to sustain your dog’s metabolism and keep him going. The treats come in quarter-sized, moist, chewy squares that are perfect for larger dogs but easy to break apart for smaller breeds. These treats are designed to sustain your dog’s energy so he can keep up with you.
Zuke’s Power Bones – What’s in them, anyway?
I love that they are made in the U.S.A. and don’t contain anything artificial. The ingredients listed are:
(Chicken, Beef, or Peanut Butter), Ground Oats, Ground Barley, Ground Rice, Maple Syrup, Vegetable Glycerin, Gelatin, Apples, Beets, Carrots, Sweet Potatoes, Cherries, Salt, Lecithin, Coconut Oil, Phosphoric Acid, Sorbic Acid (a preservative), Rosemary, Turmeric, Cinnamon, Mixed Tocopherols.
As you can see, these are very natural and healthy treats. They also don’t contain any wheat, corn or soy.
The Review – Yay or Nay?
I decided to see if the Power Bones could help Eddie keep up.
Since temperatures reached into the mid 60′s in the Philly area this weekend, Eddie and I trekked out on a path close to home. I broke up the treats and used them as a training tool on our walk (we are working on not chasing cars). He didn’t get too many, but they definitely helped keep up his energy (especially since he skipped most of his breakfast).
We also tried the Zuke’s Power Bones on our neighbor’s dogs to try to keep some order when we had some friends over to play. They were a huge hit – the dogs came running when they heard the bag opening and I was easily able to keep their attention and get a sit when things needed to settle down. The Loquasto house is known in the neighborhood to have excellent snacks – and Zuke’s Power Bones didn’t disappoint. The taste test was definitely a success and we sent some samples home with our guests.
