High moisture percentage and low Fat percentage, not the best but for under 2 bucks. I guess why not?

Why would you want low moisture and high fat for treats?

Wouldn't want high fat, but why would you want to pay for water?

But it's meant to be moist, it's even in the title. It's a soft treat. Why would you want it dried out? It's not a dry treat like biscuits.
I'm just curious. Not attacking you or anything. I buy both types of treats.

If your dog is active, a higher fat content is good. Also it is very good for the dogs coat. Fat Content also lends to the quality of the treat. A higher moisture/crude protein to fat ratio usually means it could be lower quality, similar to what another poster stated about paying for water.

That being said, Lamb is the number 1 ingredient so these are perfectly fine and I did purchase two for my malamute.

You want some moisture, but not a high percentage. That's the gimmick of these kinds of treats. You pay a lot of money for what comes down to being mostly water.

Even at this discounted price, it comes out to $8/lb. Even some of the most expensive dog food costs about $2/lb (when purchased in larger bags). I' haven't looked at the breakdown of these treats, but treats such as these are notorious for containing a lot of sugar. These are priced better than most, but I just think dog treats of all kinds have become a major racket.

Thanks. Never thought of it that way.

I also agree about the price of dog treats vs food. It's ridiculous. Sometimes I bake my own dog treats.

I don't see the save and subscribe option for the lamp formula - only chicken and duck. Am I wrong?
