If you feed your dog treats regularly, you've probably noticed a trend in commercial treats over recent years. There has been a push for higher-quality treats made with wholesome, natural ingredients. Pet owners are ditching low-quality dog treats for options like Ziwi Single Ingredient Dog Chews.
Cheap, low-quality dog treats and chews are made with artificial ingredients and junky fillers. These poor-quality treats are often filled with chemicals and artificial ingredients. It's important that you read the label and understand exactly what your dog will be eating.
Finding limited ingredient treats that are 100% natural is the best option!
Ziwi Single Ingredient Dog Chews have only one ingredient, so you know exactly what your dog is getting. I usually make homemade treats for my dogs, but I also purchase single ingredient commercial treats from time to time. In this review, I'll share my findings on these dog chews from Ziwi to help you decide if they'll be a good choice for your pet.

Ziwi Single Ingredient Dog Chews Review
Ziwi has taken a different approach to creating their line of pet food and treats. They use an air drying technique to naturally preserve the ingredients, while eliminating pathogens and protecting the natural nutrients found in the ingredients.
The protein sources used to make these chews are always from free-range farms and raised without hormones or growth promotants. All of the meat in Ziwi Single Ingredient Dog Chews are sourced from 100% ethical and sustainable New Zealand farms.
These chews are all-natural with no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. Because they are made with just one meat ingredient, these chews are high in protein. If your pup is on a low-protein diet, you shouldn't feed him these chews.
Ziwi Single Ingredient Dog Chews are hard, so they help maintain your pup's dental health. As your dog chews, they will scrape plaque and tartar buildup off his teeth.
While they are hard, these chews are not long-lasting for power chewers. It takes our Beagle a while to finish one, but our Lab can crunch one up in just a few seconds.
They are available in 4 varieties, including:
- Lamb Tripe
- Lamb Trachea
- Lamb Drumsticks
- Beef Weasand (Esophagus)
Our dogs got to try all four flavors, and they loved every one! I will say, though, that our girls are not picky eaters at all. Also, if your dog is picky about different textures, he may not enjoy the toughness of these dog chews.
Depending on the flavor that you choose, you can purchase a 2.8-ounce package of Ziwi Single Ingredient Dog Chews on Amazon for $12.48-$18.99. If you have a power chewer, you'll go through a bag of these quickly, and they probably won't be worth the cost. However, if you have a small dog that isn't an aggressive chewer, these chews would be a good value for the money.
