    Ryno was salivating while I was opening the bag. When I finally gave him some to try, he was crazy for them. He followed me back to the pantry in hopes I’d give him more. Definitely Ryno approved.

  13. Ashley Bercaw

    Love these bites! These are the perfect size for both my frenchies and English bulldogs and I LOVE that they are made with fermented food to help boost the good bacteria in their guts. With so many bad treats out there, it’s nice to have a good option for my pets. I also like to crumble and use as a topper for their food sometimes!

  14. Alexandra Blakley

    These bites are the perfect size for a training treat but with all the added goodness from Gussy’s it also makes for a great meal boost/topper! I’ve used it as both and my dogs are all quite impressed.

    Guilt free snacking – my dog loves these & I know they are actually good for her!! Great size, makes them convenient for high reward treats with training.

  29. Jackie

    My dog loves these treats – this says a lot because he loves his ball but is not treat motivated at all. He won’t eat his probiotics supplements on its own but will devour these Steve’s protein bites. This is definitely going to be a staple in my household. I will alternate between the chicken and lamb flavor for sure!

  30. Kayla

    These are a must have when it comes to training! My dogs are obsessed and love these so much

  31. Taylor Brower

    I love that they are not too soft like other freeze dried raw options. These go into a treat pouch without becoming a powder! They are a great high value treat with added gut health!

  32. Molly Mehlman

    My pups love these! We had a tough month with an infection and had to be on some heavy duty antibiotics, I used these as treats and put some in her food to keep her appetite up. It was great knowing that we were giving her something not only that she liked, but also that was great for her gut after the antibiotics!

  33. Caleb L Ballew

    These are excellent training treats. Size is perfect.

  34. Taylor E.

    These treats are perfect for our hikes. The dogs are obsessed with them so they are very high value, nutritious, easy/lightweight to carry, and the perfect size!

  36. Hailey

    perfect sized treat for training and my dog loves them!

  37. Kelly K

    These treats cured our cats digestive problems! They were regurgitating food and vomiting 4-6 times a week despite hydrolyzed food and full work up by vets. We’re at our wits end wuth trying out solutions when I picked these up at the pet store. It’s been 3 weeks of no vomiting since we started the recommended daily amount, we can hardly believe it – such a simple solution to our problems!

  38. Julie Schwartz

    My Ragdoll loves these but you must be careful to only give a couple each day. It can upset his tummy.

Consider our fermented, freeze-dried treats for the following reasons:

  • Nutrient Preservation: Steve’s Real Food Chicken Protein Bites are freeze-dried, preserving the essential nutrients in the chicken. This method ensures that the treats maintain their nutritional integrity without the need for additives or preservatives.
  • Fermented Goodness: Inspired by the natural canine and feline diet, these treats incorporate the benefits of fermentation. Dogs and cats, in the wild, consumed prey with fermented vegetable contents, and Steve’s Real Food replicates this ancestral approach. The fermentation process not only enhances flavor, but also introduces natural gut-soothing nutrients, prebiotics, probiotics, and postbiotics.
  • Enhanced DIgestability: Compared to raw vegetables, the raw fermented ingredients in these treats are easier to digest for dogs and cats. The fermentation process not only increases the bioavailability of nutrients but also contributes to better overall digestive health.
