Taylor Thursday & Zuke’s Giveaway

Taylor is turning 5 on Friday, August 3rd and to celebrate her birthday we wanted to share a wonderful giveaway with you and your pup.  Have you heard of Zuke’s?  It’s a dog treat company based in Durango, Colorado that stands for quality and believes in creating treats that are  healthy and all natural.  The founder, Patrick Meiering named the company after his dog, Zuke and a portion of the sales are donated in memory of Zuke to the Dog & Cat Cancer Fund.    I love that it’s a company that gives back.

We switched Taylor to  grain free dog food years ago.  We also give her fish oil and glucosamine daily to help with her coat, skin and joints.  Taylor is part Golden Retriever and hip dysplasia  common in her breed.  We are doing what we can to prolong her life and help her age in a healthy way.  I think sometimes we care more about her health than our own.

Taylor is salivating over these treats!

Sometimes it’s difficult to find healthy treats.  I would like to say that we only give Taylor carrots and apples for treats, but that’s not always easy when you’re traveling or in a hurry. We were happy to learn that Zuke’s provides a healthier alternative to traditional dog treats.  It’s wheat, corn and soy free, has no fillers, additives, artificial colors or flavors, no added fat or by-products and these treats are made in the USA.  We feel better giving her these treats and she enjoys them very much.  I especially like the Hip Action treats that are fortified with 300mg glucosamine and chondroitin.  Taylor loves the chicken flavor Hip Actions which also has antioxidants and the Wild Rabbit Mini Naturals.  These little treats are the perfect size for training.  She drools for the rabbit mini naturals!  Zuke’s has a variety of natural treats that are great for active dogs.  They also have a product line for cats too.

Even Zoey the Golden Doodle can't resist licking her chops in anticipation of these treats!

Zuke’s sent Taylor a box full of Mini Naturals and Hip Action treats.  They must have read Taylor’s mind because they sent her all of her favorite flavors:  salmon, chicken, peanut butter, wild rabbit and beef.    It’s every dog’s dream menu!  To celebrate Taylor’s 5th birthday Zuke’s is giving away the same treats that Taylor received to one lucky reader. This giveaway is valued at over $50.00 and consist of four (4) 6 oz. bags of Mini Naturals (salmon, chicken, peanut butter and wild rabbit formula) and three (3) 6 oz. bags of Hip Action (chicken, peanut butter and beef formula). Both of these lines are moist dog treats.  Zuke’s products are available online and certain stores across the country.
