Chewy.Blogger: Tomlyn Multi-Vitamin Bacon Flavor Small Dog Chews

Chewy.com

ABOUT CHEWY.COM
We’re dog and cat lovers who want only the best-quality products for our pets. And we’re always on the go. That’s why we created Chewy.com: a specialty pet retailer stocking the very best brands under one roof, with fast delivery right to yours.

Consider us your neighborhood pet store, but better. We’re knowledgeable and always ready to answer your questions. But you won’t have to lug that fifty-pound bag of dog food to your car because we’ll deliver it right to your door.
With all the treats and table foods Chase gets, I worry he doesn't get enough vitamins in his diet. When I buy foods and treats, I try to make sure there are good vitamins and stuff he should have in them, But I know while table food has vitamins for us humans, they don't have the vitamins doggies need.

We DO have another vitamin for Chase, but it's in chewable pill form. He won't chew it up in that form, so we have to crush it into a powder and then mix it with peanut butter, then have him either lick it off the plastic spoon or our fingers... and that's a complete mess.

So, when I saw these as part of Chewy's blogger program in December 2017, I snagged them. I wanted something that would be easy to give to Chase, plus be in a flavor he loves.

Sadly, Chase didn't really like these vitamins, and I'm not sure why. At first I thought it was the size, since they are a bit larger for his mouth, so we cut them into half. He still wasn't having any of them. We tried multiple days and it was still a no-go for him. I think it was because of the texture. He really doesn't like chewy treats, opting for jerky-style or crunchy treats.

The smell is of... well... bacon. But here's the thing, it's not your typical 'fresh bacon in the frying pan' smell. These have the smell of bacon bits or like Beggin' Strips... imitation bacon. Be warned if this smell nauseates you.

I really don't see disabled folks having a problem with these treats, except with the ziploc-style bag. If these need to be cut smaller for your pup, this may be a problem if knife use is a issue.

The Tomlyn Multi-Vitamin Bacon Flavor Small Dog Chews are available at chewy.com for $13.00 a bag.

FINAL THOUGHTS
These were a flop for Chase, because of the texture of the product. I think if these were crunchy biscuits, he would have taken them.
STARS: 
WOULD RECOMMEND: Only if your pup likes chewy textures
