Cadet brand jerky chips - has anyone tried?

Has anyone bought the Cadet brand jerky treats? I'm looking for some duck jerky and this brand keeps popping up over and over again, but I can't find specifics on the ingredients (anything besides duck involved?) and haven't heard of it before now.

Here is a picture of the two bags if that helps anyone remember:

The first one is duck breast, and the second bag is duck turkey chips.


If you have, can you tell me the ingredients on the bag, where it is made, and let me know if there are any other reasons you wouldn't buy it again? I want to locate a good duck treat for someone else's dog, but I'm having trouble.

Kimberly, I'm not exactly sure, but I think the bag I saw said "made in China". But if I see them I will let you know for sure.

Thank you. I don't know anyone who carries these in my area, but I'd really like to find a pure duck treat. If you see any duck treats made in the U.S., I'd love to know about them!

Hi Kimberly-- Jasper grew up on the Cadet Rabbit Jerky treats. For the longest time that was the only thing I could get him to eat. when I got scared about the made in china thing, I stopped feeding them to him and he really came out of his depressive personality.

I did find these on my search for a replacement-- they are not 100% meat but made in the USA- he didn't like the duck but liked the saimon...they even have kangaroo.

also found these no duck-- but thought I would share (my guys didn't like them)

At this point, I specifically want to find duck, so that first link looks like a great option. I'm going to email them and find out where we can get some. Thank you for the information on Cadet - I forgot about Jasper's experience and that you knew they were made in China. Cadet is out!

Kimberly,

I used to buy the Cadet chicken jerky treats from Costco when they carried them (they changed the brand they carried later on). I believe those were made in China, but I don't know about the duck treats.

I just found a free sample in my treat stash of these Plato dog treats. It says they have no artificial preservatives, no by-products, they're all-natural and fortified with antioxidant vitamins and proteinated zinc. It says "Made in U.S.A." on the package too. They come in 4 different kinds: Duck, Salmon, Kangaroo, or Chicken. They are all labeled as "over 90% _____"(whatever kind of meat they use).

They look like 2" x 3/4" x 1/8" thick little strips. The sample I have is Salmon and I haven't opened them yet.

Kimberly,

Your best bet is making your own duck jerky. I've looked and found NOTHING. I've also looked for Venison treats and did find only one made in the US.

It isn't for me Kara. I'm trying to help someone else out that has their dog on a very limited diet, in which duck is the only protein being given right now. We need some type of a dry treat for training. Jerkies seem to work well in this situation, so the hunt is on for the duck jerky.

Missy & Jane, I believe we have found a winner! Thank you for posting that additional information Jane. I'll go look up the ordering information and see if anyone locally carries it in their store. Yea!

Thank you!

Now watch - the dog will hate it.
