Every dog loves getting a treat from time to time. Whether you give Fido treats sparingly or you like to treat him multiple times per day, it's important to feed high quality treats. Depending on your dog's needs, it may also be beneficial to choose treats with added supplements, like Gabby's Wink Whippy Soft Chews.
Cheap dog treats are made with fillers, artificial ingredients and potentially harmful chemicals and dyes. They do not provide much nutritional value, if any at all. I'm sure they will make your pup happy, but that is the only benefit to low quality dog treats.
Wouldn't you rather feed your pooch a snack that will benefit his overall health and well-being? Serving treats that offer a high quality source of protein, vitamins and minerals will make Fido happy and give his body the nutrients that it needs.
Plus, you can select treats formulated to meet your dog's specific needs. For example, these dog treats from Gabby's Wink are formulated to aid in hip and joint health. They are made with some common ingredients that you will recognize and a few additional supplements that may not be as familiar.
Gabby's Wink Whippy Soft Chews Review
As I said, these dog treats are formulated specifically for hip and joint health. They are made with glucosamine and chondroitin, which are two supplements known for their ability to aid in joint health.
They also contain Methylsulfonylmethane – more commonly referred to as MSM. It is a sulfur-containing compound that is naturally found in plants, animals and people. This supplement is frequently used in the alternative medical field as a natural treatment for joint pain and inflammation.
Gabby's Wink Whippy Soft Chews also include a multi-vitamin to aid in your dog's overall health and well-being. As the name suggests, they are a chewy treat that is bite size for the average dog. If you have a teacup breed, they are easy to break in half.
These dog treats are cheese flavored. I don't care for the smell, but our dogs do seem to like the flavor. The treats don't make their breath stink or give them gas. As you can see in my video review, all three of our dogs eat Whippy Soft Chews without hesitation.
Gabby's Wink Whippy treats are made with rice bran, so they are vegan and gluten free.
The soft chews are formulated for dogs and cats weighing up to 60 pounds. The serving guidelines are 1 chew per day for pets up to 30 pounds, and 2 chews per day for dogs weighing up to 60 pounds.
Typically, large breeds have more problems with their joints than smaller dogs. Overweight dogs are also more likely to suffer with joint problems. For this reason, I was surprised that these treats were not recommended for dogs weighing 60+ pounds.
You can purchase a container of 100 treats for $28.95 on the company's website. They are sold out on Amazon for the time being, but I'll update my review when they are available again.
If you do the math, that's about $0.29 per treat. It may seems expensive compared to poor quality treats that are available for just a few dollars per bag. But, you have to consider the quality of the treats and the supplements they include.
Supplements for dogs are expensive, and so are multi-vitamins. When you consider everything you get with these 3-in-1 dog treats, the cost is actually very reasonable.
