I would assume so, but wanted to check.

I bought her a bag of Zuke's chicken treats before I knew to try to switch her to a grain free food. I can take it to my shelter.

Stella and Chewy's has some snacks and I can get them at the store that had her Orijen food. Do you have another treat choice you would suggest?

Just wanted to check!

We use the Zuke's treats even tho their diet is primarily grain free. They don't get a ton of them, but 1-2 times a week they might get one. The rest of their treats are grainfree.

I consider treats just that ... treats. Less than 10% of their diet for sure. If they don't have an intolerance to grains and it's just your preference to feed grain free - then there are some grain free treats. Otherwise it's OK to give treats that contain grains if you'd like to. Stella and Chewy's does have a treat called carnivore crunch and also carnivore kisses that are both good. I do like Zukes as well! Zukes also has a nice cat treat line that you can use and the little treats are TINY which are perfect for our breed.

Sorry to go off topic here, but I would love to know more about this! When I got that Fromm coupon from you, I wasn't able to get the grainfree dog food, but they had the surf&turf for cats and I got that instead as a nice snack for the "family" cats. Well everytime I even get close to the bag, my chis go craaaazy. They obviously want something fishy (ziwipeak venison&fish ON THE WAY!!!!!:hello1::hello1:).
Anyway, these cat kibbles are ttteeeeeeny tiiiiiiny! Would it be ok to let my puppers have 3 or 4 as a treat? They want it so bad. lol.

(Normally I would never think to give cat treats/kibble to my dogs, but the ingredients on this look even better than the surf&turf dog formula!)

Yep! I give cat treats all the time. They are teeny and many cat treats have a higher meat content than dog treats. I have had no problems at all giving kitty treats! :)

As for kitty kibble - yes, you can use it as an occasional treat. Cat kibble is higher in protein/fat than dog kibble so use discretion and don't go overboard. But an occasional kibble or two is fine!

Well, I am guessing she has a grain problem and I will switch to non-grain treats. Either Wellness Pure stuff or Stella and Chewy's.

I gave her a Zuke's treat and her potty, which has become MUCH better on grain free food, suddenly was looser.

Thank you all!!
