Guide to Zuke’s Puppy Treats
Zuke’s has the perfect present: Zuke’s Puppy Treats. With only six ingredients and no wheat, corn, or soy filler, these treats will prove to be an excellent addition to any puppy bag.
The turkey and cranberry-based morsels are the first of their kind available in various flavors for small dogs such as lamb and pumpkin. The treats contain glucosamine and chondroitin for joint health, omega 3 fatty acids for shiny coats, and antioxidants such as vitamin E derived from sunflowers to keep skin healthy. Formulated by veterinarians at Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine, these treats encourage healthy chewing habits while cleaning teeth and gums, promoting healthy hips and joints, and stimulating circulation.
Zuke’s Puppy Treats are made in the USA in a human food facility following all FDA guidelines. We pack our treats in brown paper bags to keep them fresh until your furry friend is ready for them. Stop by today and give the pups a taste of Zukes!
Available in three delicious flavors:
Lamb & Sweet Potato, Pumpkin & Apple, and Turkey & Cranberry.
Packages of Zuke’s Puppy Treats include sixteen (16) one-ounce (1oz.) bags. Each bag is labeled with the flavor and weight range for which it is appropriate: 2oz., 5.5oz., 11 oz.
Zukes can be given anytime as a reward or training aid; however, we do recommend only giving the amount suggested per body weight to avoid digestive upset which could lead to diarrhea.
