Palette’s note: Grass-fed Moo! Angus beef Whole Achilles Tendon

 When you pick up
treats for your dogs, what would you look at?

 Ingredients? Fancy looking
pictures?Description of the products?

 Have you ever wondered if you
could actually see how other dogs are enjoying them? Not pictures,but in
video so that you can actually HEAR and feel the treats’ textures?

 Some of you may
have already recognized I have been putting up treats’ video on youtube
so that people can hear the sound,and see Palette in action and get more
detail on products.

 With “Palette’s note” series,I like to put taste test videos.

 This time, “Grass-fed Moo! Angus beef Whole Achilles Tendon.

K9 executive chef “Palette” enjoys Grass-fed Moo! Angus beef Whole Achilles Tendon ..

 Grass-fed Moo! Angus beef Whole Achilles tendon made in Argentina.

 These are made from grass-fed Angus beef that received No antibiotic,No growth hormone in their life, and they are approx 8″-10″ in length. They are not smoked tendon treats.
 Palette adore this brand of Achilles tendon treats.

 They are softer chewy unique treats but it is not too soft that she can gobbles it up in a second. It still requires her quite a bit of chewing for her to chew off the bits.

 She loves this treats and,I think that these are good alternative chew in place of bully sticks.

 If you were looking for long lasting chew, we recommend Deer Antlers.

 If you were looking for softer chew than Antlers,but the one lasts long enough, then, we would recommend Himalayan Dog Chew, which we call it “Cheese stick” for our k9 executive chef “Palette”. She chewed roughly 1″ per 20 minutes long per time for the Large size one.

 If you were looking for treats with benefit; treats that has good health properties, then, we recommend gullet treats,trachea treats, and poultry feet treats for joint health since those are great natural source of glucosamine/chondroitin, and fish treats for healthy coat and skin because fish treats we carry are all from cold water oily fish that are high in Omega 3 fatty acids; salmon,mackerel,herring and sardine.

 There are many fish treats available on the market are they claim to be high in Omega 3 fatty acid but, fish they use is non oily fish such as cod, tilapia and some fish they use are not wild caught but farm raised fish.

 Fish in general has higher number of Omega 3 fatty acids,compared to poultry like chicken but, the amount they can provide is far less than oily cold water fish like salmon.

 For example, 1 oz of cod cooked contains roughly 80mg of Omega 3 fatty acids (You can look up nutrition profile here).

 What about salmon?

 Wild caught Atlantic salmon, cooked, 1 oz,  has 724mg of Omega 3 fatty acids. You can see the difference and understand why I advise you to give salmon over cod. (You can look up wild caught cooked Atlantic salmon nutrition profile here)

 Salmon got 10 times more of good stuff in them!

 This is the reason why we, Yassy’s Gourmet Dog Kitchen ,do not carry non oily fish based treats.

 Personally, if I am going to give something as treats to Palette, I would rather like to give more treats with health benefit than the treats simply designed for gnaw pleasure/great taste.

 If your dog loves fish, then, give cold water oily fish base treats, not the one made with general fish for the maximum health benefit of them enjoying the treats and still get good health benefit by consuming them.

 Anyway, whole Achilles tendon treats are made from Grass-fed beef and, they are great beef chew as alternative in place of regular bully sticks for chew fun.

 Not only that, grass-fed meat have higher Omega 3 fatty acids than feedlot meat,as well, and better choice for the healthier treats for your furriends.

 Due to natural treats,thickness and length of the each treats can vary.

Ingredient: Beef tendon

 Let’s watch how much Palette enjoy her Grass-fed Moo! Angus beef Cow tail wraps  below.

Palette and Whole Achilles Tendon Part 2

you hear the sound of Palette getting so excited for the treats and you can hear her whining?

 You can also see that these treats are not chomp,chomp, gone type of treats but it is making Palette work on the treat to eat.

 One tendon for Palette generally lasts about 10-15 minutes. When you
consider they are not as hard as bully sticks, I think they are very
good chew that lasts a little longer than regular soft texture treats.

Pal’s Hands free chew style… Ta-da!


Nom,nom,nom..look at my wet nose!

Hmm,this part needs a little chew work..close to da ends..


See my wet nose? I really like these treats!
