For the purposes of this review, we’re going to take a look at their Buffalo Chews.

We’ll break this article into the following sections:

Who are Pet Munchies?

Pet Munchies are a UK-based company with a factory with the HACCP food safety system.

Why is that important to note? Well Pet Munchies emphasise that their products are developed to the highest human food standards.

Furthermore, they only use suppliers who are registered with CIQ to ensure they’re chicken materials meet their high standards.

They use processes that ensure the meat retains all its natural nutritional value.

Pet Munchies dehydrate their treats in state-of-the-art driers to ensure a shelf life of 18 months.

The aim of their Buffalo Chews is to clean their teeth and strengthen their jaw muscles.

What treats do Pet Munchies offer?

As we mentioned above, Pet Munchies offer an array of different treats, including dog treats, dog training treats, dog stix treats and dog salmon treats.

However, in this article, we’re taking a close look at their Buffalo Chews.

Described as a premium gourmet dental chew, they’re made with 100 per cent natural human-grade grass fed Buffalo.

Pet Munchies state on their website that these chews have a number of potential benefits.

Infused with salmon oil, they claim that it’s good for their skin and their coat, as well as joint mobility due to rich levels of Omega 3.

These “long lasting” chews can also help to reduce tartar and plaque to support good oral health, according to their website.

Pet owners can have peace of mind knowing that these chews are low in fight, high in protein with no artificial colors of flavours.

Our verdict

My Alaskan Klee Kai love a good chew – I mean whose dog doesn’t?!

They had never tried a Buffalo Chew so I was intrigued to see how they’d react to them.

My oldest dog Skye, who is a big chewer with stronger jaws than her brother, loved these Pet Munchies chews.

We were sent the appropriate chews for small dogs and they kept her preoccupied for around 30 minutes.

My younger Klee Kai Copper is rather more delicate and these chews certainly proved a bit of a test for him.

In fact, I came back hours later to find that he still had half his Buffalo Chew left. However, I did feel Skye was really into these chews, while Copper wasn’t overly interested.

Unlike bully sticks, there was no unpleasant odor. That was a big plus!

Customer reviews

Pet Munchies Buffalo Chew get 4.4 stars out of 5 based upon 16 reviews on online retailer Amazon.

A pet owner called Josie was delighted with the durability and lack of odor:

They are also quite hard – although the interlinking twists are loose and not actually attached to each other – so it’s going to be long lasting but not impossible to eat. It’s also quite pleasing that these chews don’t stink to high heaven. They have a ‘normal’, meaty smell that doesn’t linger on the hands once you’ve touched them – but still seems to be very appealing to the dogs.

A customer with a six-month old puppy hailed the versatility of the chews:

I have a six month old puppy who loves to chew. I had found some plaited chews that had a thread of “food”-chew running through them, but now that he has worked out how to pick the food out quickly he tends to do that and discard the actual chew component very quickly. These chews offer the best of both worlds. They are just tough enough to present a challenge but also seem to have enough flavour to keep him coming back.

However, one customer revealed that these chews were a mixed hit:

Tried them on my border collie, he was not impressed. He didn’t try chewing it but immediately buried it in the garden. After he had dug it up and then reburied it three mornings running I gave up and binned it. My friends dogs, a retriever and a cocker spaniel were a different story, they both loved them. I don’t think there as been a noticeable difference to their teeth but they rate them as a treat.
