PSA: Himalayan Chews on Doggyloot.com

Hi all,
Doggyloot.com has a weekly special on Himalayan dog chews - two packages of Medium sized chews for $13 + $2.75 shipping. The two pack special for large and small chews are $15 plus shipping.

Anyway, I can't recall the retail price of these at my local store but I think it's like $12 for one, so this seems to be a pretty good deal on a pretty popular chew for our Havs!

We use the medium size, and really like them. That site has too many hoops to jump trough for me, including a signup with email. The price is a dollar or two cheaper. The last we bought cost 7.99 each, while this is $13 for 2.

Where are these treats made? With all the hype about Chinese made foods and treats . . .Himalayan seems like an odd name for pet treats . . .unless they really ARE made in China . . .

They are made from Yak and cow's milk and are a very, VERY hard cheese stick. Kodi likes them. They are not from China, but from Nepal and parts of northern India.

Here's a FAQ about them:

I love these chews. They last longer than any other chew besides antlers and bones for Cey, and he will chew on them for as long as I let him.

Interesting and fun fact that I learned recently: when the chews get too small to give to your dog (the website claims they are digestible if the dog ingests a larger piece, but still recommends watching your dog) you can pop the rest in the microwave for a few seconds. It will balloon up into a crunchy, airy, easily chewable treat that Cey loves just as much as the chews and probably more since he can actually eat it (I break the microwaved treat up and only give him a little bit at a time, just in case)!

Yeah, these daily deal sites can be cumbersome. Wow you get good prices on yours! They're only available in two stores that I know if in Omaha, and they're priced a little higher apparently.

I saw on their Facebook page that they were recently awarded 1st Place - Best in Show - Dog Category of the Global Pet Expo 2012.

I saw a video of this as well. They sort of have a Whopper/malted milk ball texture to them after microwaving them. Digs loved the microwaved bits.

It actually makes sense, since they're cheese... That's what cheese does when you cook it.

Exactly! I was very happy to learn about this trick myself, for that very reason

The microwave trick is a HIT!!! I took one of the little pieces that we would have thrown away and tried it. Our microwave is an old one so I had to keep going up in time until it did anything. Once it did, it smelled a little burnt, but I cut it up in pieces and...long story short, it has to be the highest value treat ever. They all loved it and were running all over the house checking to see if anyone dropped a little bit.
