Clear Conscience Pet

This company had the right idea by naming themselves Clear Conscience Pet. When I opened the package that was sent to me, one of the first things I noticed was that these treats are free of grains, glutens, GMO's, and glycerin. Now, I'm no expert on dog health... BUT, I have learned that low quality grains, like corn, are or can be bad for dogs and their digestion. Especially if they have an allergy.

We're always on the hunt for the "best quality" food for our pets and are in the end trusting what companies may or may not have put into their recipes, and hoping that trust is well placed. You almost need to have a dictionary at hand while reading the ingredients. Right?

With a clear conscious, I can feed this product to my dog because its all natural. Nothing artificial and no hidden ingredients behind those big words!

Beef Trachey Chewz' ingredients, clearly labeled, says it contains: beef trachea (uh, yum!), organic flaxseed, dried tomato, dried spinach, dried carrot. With a minimum of 47% protein, fat minimum of 21%, fiber with a maximum of 8%, and a maximum of 14% moisture.

Beef Scrappy Chewz' ingrediemts include: beef scapular cartilage. Pretty simple, eh? This one has a higher protein level of 65% being the minimum, fat minimum of 7%, fiber maximum of 1%, and a minimum moisture at 17%.

Another thing I noticed when I pulled these out was that both of these samples are a source of natural Chondroitin and Glucosamine. I did pull a dictionary out for these ones. These benefit by promoting healthy joints and easing arthritis pain.

Not even lookin'.
Now, who WOULDN'T want this for their dog, a member of the family?! This package contained 2 Beef Trachey Chewz ($6.95) and separately, 3 Beef Scappy Chews ($9.95) (beef scapular cartilage being it's only ingredient). To be able to make a fair review, I asked a friend of mine to let me get her dog's opinion, and she agreed while warning me about him being a picky eater.

My dog, Nala, is for some reason not interested in any of these, at all. We bought her a nice, juicy bone for Christmas and she wanted nothing to do with it. She licked it a couple of times and that was it.

With the Beef Scrappy Chews, no added flavor, I couldn't even get her to look at it, which was expected. I then pulled out a Beef Trachey Chew... She gave it a few licks and was done with it.

So, thankfully, when I told my friend about these treats and their benefits, she said yes!

Once I got to her house, we started with the Beef Scrappy Chewz (no flavor) because it wouldn't make sense to give a kid bread after candy, would it? That's how I approached this with our dogs. I opened the bag, he smelled it, I took it out and he turned his head. I thought, "Okay, he's just picky... On to the next!"

When I opened the bag with the Beef Trachey Chewz (the flavorful ones), although a little intimidated by its name, I was overwhelmed with a scent that did not disgust me like most dog treats or even a bag of chips would!

More for me, Nala. More for me!

Now, I wouldn't go as far as tasting it, but let's just say that I could not get this to my friends' dog fast enough! He devoured it! Seeing how quickly he took it surprised us. I think the name intimidated her as well.

I enjoyed sharing these with our pets and would most definitely suggest this product to all pet lovers, health nuts, and owners of older dogs. Also to anyone with a pup who loves to chew! Thank you, Clear Conscious Pet for giving me the opportunity to try this!   Clear Conscious Pet products can be found at local stores or purchased on their website.
