Anyone try these?

I ordered Timmy's new crate and got free shipping if I spent over $50.00. I always have to end up buying something else to get to that total so I bought these sweet potato chips not knowing what I'd get. The chips arrived before the crate of course. Anyway, I gave Timmy one yesterday and he loved it. They are really hard, almost like a bully stick and they are big too, over 1/4 inch thick. I love the idea of being able to give him something other then those fatty, greasy chews, or the regular antlers. Timmy has been having his fair share of tummy trouble lately so he's been on chicken, rice and pumkin as well as just finishing up his second round of antibiotics so his treats have been very restricted until he got back to normal. I must say starting this morning he has pooped about 5 times, totally back to normal every time, must be cleaning out the pipes. Think the sweet potato had something to do with that? Anyway I highly recommend these to anyone who wants an alternative, American made and all natural, can't beat that. I got them online from PetSmart.

I have gotten those and my pups are not that crazy about them. I thought they looked good and smelled good and were a wonderful alternative to other chews, but couldn't convince the "babies"! Glad at least someone's dog likes them!

I worry about the color staining on my girl's white coat? Is there any with that one?

tillie LOVES dehydrated sweet potatoes, but she can't have them because she had it ONCE and had the WORST diarea ever. She gets regular steamed/pureed sweet potatoes as part of her regular diet and seems fine, but the dried ones she can't tolerate.

I've not tried them but bet Sissy would love them considering she stole a real sweet potato out of the box when we were driving home..we kept hearing this crunch crunch and I finally made the bf pull over so I could see what she had...she ate about 1/2 of it before I got it off her...so funny..luckily did not make her sick......I'm only giving freeze dried chicken treats made in the USA now...where are these made?

I used to give them to Kodi... he certainly likes them. But they are big, and added a LOT of bulk to his diet. I was finding that it cause a 3rd poop each day... something I just didn't want to deal with.
