This is an excellent treat and topper for your good dog! Stella & Chewy’s is a remarkable brand due to the quality and care they put into all their dog foods, treats, toppers, and snacks.
- Never any artificial colors or flavors.
- 95% chicken, bone, and organs mean you are not paying a lot for cheap fillers.

- Made in the USA. Nothing is sourced from China.
- Small amounts of fruits and veggies add texture and fiber to your dog’s diet.
- Probiotics help to provide digestive and immune support. You may not feel like you need to add additional probiotics if you use this as a topper for your dog’s kibble.

I give this topper 4 Paws Up out of 5. The ingredients are great and it provides a lot of important vitamins, minerals, protein, and micronutrients. Probiotics help all dogs digest their food better so they get the most out of each and every bite.
