First of all, if you want to give your dog a snack that is top quality, then Stella & Chewy Dandy Lamb may be a good choice for you. However, unless you have a small or toy breed, this is not an economical feed for even those with big budgets for their pets. It would cost $25 per day to feed this to a giant breed dog! However, this is a top-notch treat or food topper.
- No artificial colors or flavors.
- Real lamb.
- No corn, wheat, or soy.
- Contains probiotics for better digestion.
- Pumpkin seed helps dogs with sensitive stomachs.
- Fruits and veggies for balance and antioxidant protection.
We give Stella & Chewy’s Dandy Lamb 4 Paws up out of 5. Unfortunately, the cost is excessive. As a result, it’s more affordable to cook meats and veggies for your dog and add some additional vitamins and probiotics in powder form.

Serve as is or rehydrate by adding water. Above all, remember that dogs that tend to not drink much water may need to have water added to their patties. To rehydrate, crumble and add 1/4 cup of water for every two patties. Also, when feeding dry, monitor your dog to see how much water they are consuming. Finally, make sure your dog has easy access to plenty of water at each meal. Consequently, an auto waterer can help with this if you tend to not remember.
The Bottom Line
Stella and Chewy Dandy Lamb is a high-quality dog food that is suitable for smaller dogs. In contrast, if you have larger dogs then this brand should be treated as just a high-quality topper or supplement. Hopefully, in the future, freeze-dried dog foods are more accessible to everyone.
