Turkey Jerky Dog Treats By Only Natural Pet!
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!
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.

Pros & Cons

- High-protein (25%)

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!
