My vet put my dog on a allergy diet and suggested SAMs yams as a treat option. They are very dry and tough. My dog spits them out. I found somewhat of a solution. I warm them in the microwave for a few seconds and then slice then down to bite size pieces. She is much happier with them. I really thinks she just misses the old stuff she was use to.
I like the fact that these are all-natural and are USA made. They provide good chewing action for our dogs. The only drawback is that they tend to come out the same way they go in. For some reason our dogs don't digest them very well and so we find little chunks of sweet potato in the yard. But, we still consider them superior to CET Chews.

Yes, we do have 29 dogs at our sanctuary......all small. We have used these treats for years and the dogs LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them. Even though the chews are big we buy these because the price is so much more affordable. I simply bend a chew double and tear it into pieces.
I have spoken at length with this company. In my opinion YOU WILL BE HARD PRESSED TO FIND A MORE DEDICATED AND HIGH QUALITY COMPANY. The owner is a fanatic about quality and even travels to the places where their products are grown. This company has a variety of fabulous chews and many of the smaller chews are loaded with fruits. The people who work at this company, many relatives of the owner, eat the chews themselves ......the ones with the fruits added to the sweet potato. I do too!!!!! They are a fabulous, nutritious, unsweetened snack loaded with good fiber and nutrition. I spent 33+ years as a licensed health care provider and my focus was holistic health and wellness. If I am eating these along with the babies here when it is snack time you can believe I have confidence in this company. All the fruits are grown locally near the plant where these treats are made. The sweet potatoes are grown in another state due to climate. Do your dogs a great favor........use these very healthy and tasty chews to improve their dental health and to add lots of nutritious foods to their diet.
I usually buy Sam's "big boy" chews, but I was curious about this product which is the same weight but about $5 cheaper. When I inquired about the difference, the c/s rep tried to tell me that they have rawhide in them, apparently not noticing (or not understanding) the quotes around that word. I tried to tell him there was no mention of rawhide in the ingredients list. He said he didn't have any control over that! So much for being informed about your products. So I went ahead and ordered a bag. Well, the chews are a lot smaller that the "big boys" and so are not as appropriate for my Rottweiler. I used them up by giving him several at one time but I now know why not to order them again.
Great chew treats. My dogs really love them. Nice alternative to other kinds of dental chews. These dehydrated sweet potatoes are crunchy and not a soft or mushy chew like many other dehydrated treats. Highly recommend them.
Our little dog has a touchy gut...however these Yams Veggie Rawhide Sweet Potato Chewz give her a great chew biscuit to help clean her teeth and don't bother her little gut :) Yes I would recommend them.
My sister had a bag of yam chews which her dog wouldn't touch, so she gave me the bag. Well, one taste of the yam chew and Benny was hooked. He now HAS TO HAVE a yam chew every night. He knows the routine, he comes around to me between 6-7 if I haven't given him one and starts nudging me.
Benny loves these, he is addicted. He won't eat all day until he gets his treat (dessert) first, then he will go to town on dinner. They are better than tree bark, for sure...
My dog absolutely loves these to the point that he is uninterested in any other treats. I give him 1/day in the afternoon and he patiently waits day after day. They take him a little while to get through which is nice for a treat. Buying in bulk is not only necessary but definitively cost-effective as well!
Sams Yams and their carrot crunches are loved by my 2 girls...... As I've said in previous reviews I dehydrate my own treats for them and there are very few brands I trust to purchase for them. This is one of them. also - very important to me that they are MADE IN THE USA - Thank you!!!
