I don’t know about you but we get a lot of junk in our U.S. mail nearly every day. Most of it I throw away without giving it a second glance. Luckily, on this particular day, I decided to look a little more closely at what we received. Good thing I did because there was a coupon from PetSmart for a free bag of Only Natural Pet treats!

We finally got around to using the coupon. I let Maui sniff around at the bags of treats and choose the one she wanted. She chose a bag of Only Natural Pet Jerky Wraps made with free-range turkey and sweet potato.

That’s a mouthful to say! Let’s see how much of a mouthful they are for Maui to eat!

 

Only Natural Pet Jerky Wraps

These jerky wraps are certainly a treat not only for the tongue but for the eyes as well! The jerky wraps come in two flavor choices:

  • chicken wrapped in carrot
  • Turkey wrapped sweet potato

Maui chose the range free turkey wrapped sweet potato Jerky Wraps.

These jerky wraps truly look like something made for human consumption (I would not try them though because they ARE made for dogs … just in case you were thinking about it).

A delicious balance of taste and texture with the chewy turkey or chicken jerky paired with dry roasted carrots or sweet potato.

 

What Makes Them so Special

These chicken jerky dog treats and turkey jerky dog treats are super special and delicious because the meat and vegetables are slow roasted. This helps the jerky wraps achieve a fun to eat chewy texture and a delicious taste!

Roasting is a healthy way to cook vegetables; it lets the food retain a lot of the natural nutrients. Roasting also intensifies flavors!

The turkey and chicken are USA sourced and raised cage-free with no added antibiotics or hormones!

Get this – they are hand wrapped!

 


 

More Detail Please

The Only Natural Pet website indicates the whole muscle meats and the vegetables used in their jerky wraps are all sourced within the United States:

  • Turkey from North Carolina
  • Sweet potatoes from Mississippi
  • Chicken from Georgia
  • Carrots from Michigan

I absolutely love that they share where each of these main ingredients is sourced. It makes me feel like they kind of just went to a next door neighbor to get ingredients to make these jerky dog treats!

 

Ingredient List

Short and sweet. Nothing artificial or mysterious here.

Turkey, sweet potato, molasses, vinegar, salt, and some natural preservatives.

 

 

What These Dog Treats Are Missing

They certainly are not lacking in the flavor and texture categories but what they ARE missing is:

  • Hormones and antibiotics
  • Artificial preservatives, flavors, and colors
  • Grain, corn, and soy
  • Ingredients from China
  • A lot of fat

 

Opening the Bag

These treats come in a 4.5-ounce bag. These treats are a decent size, I’d guesstimate the size of 2-3 quarters.

They look like jerky wrapped around a chunk of sweet potato. Imagine that.

They smell … well, not bad! They kind of smell like a sweet jerky meat. Not bad for the human nose at all!

 

 

Calories per Treat

The free range turkey and sweet potato recipe of Only Natural Pet jerky wraps contain about 96 calories per ounce.

Ugh …. I have to do math….

If I ignore all of the little pieces of jerky that are not part of a whole treat, our bag has 15 treats.

That works out to about 29 calories per treat. Not too bad, but keep it in mind when feeding ’cause those extra treat calories add up!

 

Show Me the Money

These turkey jerky dog treats and chicken jerky dog treats only come in 4.5 oz. bags. Here are some retailers and their current advertised price (which is pretty standard across the board). What will make the difference in your overall cost is an AutoShip discount and if free shipping is available.

PetSmart – $9.99

Chewy.com – $9.99 ($9.49 with AutoShip. Free shipping over $49)

OnlyNaturalPet.com – $9.99 ($8.49 with auto delivery. Currently free shipping for first-time buyers)

Pros & Cons

Pros

  • USA sourced and made
  • Whole muscle meat
  • Slow roasted
  • High-protein (25%)
  • Natural ingredients

Cons

  • One reviewer’s dog did not like the turkey jerky but ate the sweet potato
  • One reviewer indicated the chicken jerky was difficult for her dog with tooth issues to eat
  • I only get one a day (that was Maui’s input)

 

What Maui Thinks

Probably not hard to guess that Maui loves them! She’s a good size dog and was able to fit the entire piece in her mouth and chew it. I could tell it was very chewy but not hard.

As a side note, the drool was everywhere!

 

 

The Final Score

Maui gives these turkey jerky dog treats lots of drool and a butt hits the floor really fast, I want another one, paws way up!

I give them maybe an 8/10 because there were a lot of small pieces of jerky in the bag and they don’t tell you how many calories per treat.

I also find their website too commercialized and not personal enough. It’s kind of set up strangely where they appear more like an e-commerce store than a small, intimate pet food company.

Chew on, chew on!

Lynne and Maui

    • Hi Garen, Maui absolutely loves the turkey and sweet potato jerky wraps! We did not purchase a bag of the chicken ones, so she hasn’t given those a try. It really depends on the size of your dog how many you should give them per day. Smaller dogs obviously need fewer calories so should be given fewer treats. Remember to decrease the amount of regular food you give them to compensate for the extra calories in the treats.

  • These treats sound like just the thing for my dog. She loves to be rewarded and these treats would be a great addition to her regular foods. Do you know if the company is thinking of adding any other flavors? My dog will love these flavors, but she also likes a lot of variety! Thank you for finding out all of these details. I’ll let my dog know that Maui recommended them!

    • Hi Karin, I don’t know if the company is thinking of adding additional flavors. They do have a chicken and carrot variety right now, but we have not tried that flavor yet. Let us know if you give either the chicken or turkey jerky wraps a try! Maui does highly recommend them and she is definitely an expert in treats! Thanks for stopping by and come back often! 🙂

  • Oh where to begin. This article is so beautifully put together. There is so much valuable content on one page. It is engaging from the beginning to the end, and how beautiful is Maui! The images fit perfectly within the text and they add substance to what you wrote. Great layout, very professional setup yet at the same time feels very personal which I love. You are not only promoting the product but have familiarized yourself with it so that your visitors feel very welcome upon entering your page, at least I did. Great job Lynne!

    • Hi Cynthia, You just made my year! I truly appreciate everything you said and it gives me encouragement and inspiration to continue. Thank you so much!

  • Really informative review on reviewing the Only natural Pet treat.I appreciate the pros and cons arguments that can save dog owners time and money .I do not have a pet though still found the article interesting to read

    Keep up the good work

  • Looks like you have your own model “Maui” , he is doing a great job. Treats for our other family members” are just as important, health wise as they are for us. Thank you for the great post, I will have to check out the coupon and check this out.

    • Hi Irene, Maui is doing a great job of being a model! She gets kind of irritated when I have her hold the bag but she can’t get a treat yet 🙂 Please let us know if you give them a try. Maui would love to know what your dog thinks of them.

  • I like how you talked about the calories for these treats. The last thing I want is a fat dog! I’ve never heard of these particular treats, but I am inclined to think that my pets have been missing out on treats like this. Protein looks good on these too, thanks for the review, this helped!

    • Hi Jacob, Only Natural Pet is pretty small still. I honestly wouldn’t know about them either if I hadn’t received that coupon in the mail. But who can pass up a free bag of treats, right! There are some really great, high quality treats around now. Give them all go and let us know what your dog thinks 🙂
