Only Natural Pet Review

Posted on Aug 15 2013 - 3:04pm by Susan Bewley

Only Natural Pet

Like many owners with beloved pets, I spend quite a bit of time researching different products for my puppy. I love going into the mom and pop pet stores in my area for things,and while I’m there I make sure to look at the variety of treats available. More often than not, I usually leave being frustrated or spending more money than I had planned. It’s not because I found amazing deals or too many choices, quite the contrary. It’s because there may be two products in the entire store that meet my natural standards, and they cost an arm and a leg. While my Reya puppy loves them, it’s usually a bit bittersweet when I see how quickly these treats are gone.

After this happened a couple of times, I knew I had to find a replacement and fast. It seemed logical to me that somewhere on the internet would sell only natural treats and products. I mean, for humans we have places like Mighty Nest – so it seemed only logical that there would be somewhere like this for our furry companions. After a bit of searching, I found the perfect place, Only Natural Pet. Wanting to learn a bit more, I reached out to the company, who was happy to send us products for Reya to review. Having a dog that is very food motivated, Reya couldn’t WAIT to get started when the box arrived!

Only Natural Pet: Who Are They

Since 2004, Only Natural Pet has been providing the world with high quality, all natural pet products. With highly trained holistic pet health care experts selecting their stock, pet owners can rest assured that all the products sold on their store have their pets health in mind. Currently, they are the largest provider of exclusively natural pet care products in the world, carrying products that are organic, grain free, allergy friendly, and with ingredients from cruelty free farmers. Every product sold at Only Natural Pet must meet their quality standards, including items that are made by other brands. While the majority of their products are made in the United States and Canada, they do have a handful of products that are made in China in USDA certified facilities. They refuse to sell animals products made from nasty, harmful ingredients or from facilities who may use questionable practices, allowing pet owners to rest easy when it comes to giving their favorite dog or cat the best quality treats, food, and toys.

Along with having the best quality products for our pets, Only Natural Pet is also committed to protecting our environment. They are proud to be a socially responsible company and focus on reducing their overall carbon ‘pawprint’. On a daily basis, they reduce, reuse, and recycle as much as possible, being a proud of their new carbon-neutral shipping options. All of their paper, ink, and boxes are made from recycled or biodegradable products, including their packing peanuts, which can be planted in your garden or washed down your sink since they are corn starch based. What impressed me the most about Only Natural Pet, however, is that they are 100% wind powered – something you rarely see when companies talk about their eco-friendly practices. In a way, Only Natural Pet was living green before it was even popular!

Only Natural Pet: Easy Chew Bully Sticks

It is rare that I buy Reya bully sticks, mostly because they are made with some rather scary ingredients when I look at the bag. Did you know that most of the rawhide treats on the market are treated with bleach, lye, and other harsh chemicals during the drying process? Being someone who knows quite a bit about lye from soap making, I don’t want Reya going anywhere near this stuff! I was happy to see that the Only Natural Pet Easy Chew Bully Sticks were different. These sticks are made from 100% natural organ meat from grass fed, free range cattle. They are also easy to digest, low in fat, high in protein, and easy to chew, making them the perfect treat for dogs of all ages. Along with reducing tartar and plaque, they are also designed for thorough chewing, discouraging dogs from trying to swallow these treats in one go. Like all Only Natural Pet brand products, they also come with 100% money back guarantee.

While this may sound all well and good, you are probably wondering what your pets may think of these bully sticks. Now, I will warn you, Alaskan Malamutes are very motivated by food, but if Reya doesn’t like something, she won’t make a big deal about it. The last time we gave Reya something she didn’t like, she tried hiding it behind an old monitor in our living room. Luckily, this wasn’t the case with the Easy Chew Bully Sticks. She actually gobbled this up in less than five minutes, which is fairly impressive for the size of my dog. From what we have seen, she LOVED these treats. I am also happy to report that unlike most treats, she didn’t have bad breath after eating it, which made them even better in my book!

Only Natural Pet: Venison Ear Chew

Oh, where do I start with the Only Natural Pet Venison Ear Chews. In all honesty, I don’t think I have ever seen Reya so excited and protective of a treat. I actually thought she didn’t like it at first since she was carrying it around in her mouth and circling the kitchen.  It wasn’t until I realized that she was looking for a good comfy place to enjoy it and protect it that I stopped worrying. This venison ear actually kept her busy for a full hour, which I had never seen before with my dog. These venison ears seem to really hit the spot with dogs.

Like me, you probably cringed when I first said I gave her a venison ear. While we would never eat an ear, we have to remember that dogs are natural scavengers. This means that if they kill an animal, they will enjoy every bit of the animal, including the ears – which is high in protein, low in fat, and satisfies your dogs need to chew. Venison is also the perfect choice for dogs who suffer from chicken, beef, or grain allergies, allowing all dogs to enjoy this yummy treat. Of course, Only Natural Pet Venison Ear Chews are also free of additives and dangerous chemicals that are usually used for making conventional rawhide (like bleach – yikes!). Now I just need to find somewhere to hide the rest of these treats since when Reya finds the bag, she tries taking it off the table to hide it!

Only Natural Pet: Chicken Jerky Strips

When I first opened this bag of treats for testing, one thing immediately came to mind – chicken bacon.  I have no clue why but the Chicken Jerky Strips just remind me quite a bit of bacon! Unlike bacon, however, these treats are low in fat, chemical free, additive free, and made with only one ingredient – chicken! Additionally, like Only Natural Pet’s other products, they are high in protein and grain free.  These may very well be the healthiest treats out there for your favorite pup, especially if they are big meat lovers. Best of all, they are even made here in the US, allowing you to support local organic farmers. My only complaint with these treats is that they are gone pretty quickly. This may be because I have a large dog but Reya finished each of these treats in about two or three minutes.

Only Natural Pet: Overall

What do I think of Only Natural Pet? As a proud natural-oriented pet owner, I have to say this store is the best thing since sliced bread, especially if you are worried about the quality of your pet’s food, treats, and toys. It is reassuring having somewhere to shop where I don’t have to worry about the ingredients in Reya’s food, since everything sold at Only Natural Pet is made using high quality ingredients that are grain free, allergy free, and came from farms that follow cruelty-free animal practices. I think I may have found my new favorite store for buying treats for my Reya puppy. Due to their environmentally friendly practices, high quality items, and prices, I can happily give Only Natural Pet the rare rating of A++!

    I want to order some of these because they are Natural made. I used to buy the chicken strips until I found out they were imported from china and some pet's pups were dying from eating them. I refuse to buy them at all now, but these would be some I am interested in finding more information about,

    After all the issues with chicken jerky dog treats from China, I've been working on finding alternate items for my wonderful Treeing Walker Coonhounds (I have five).  I also have my own dog rescue so we have to be really careful what we spend our funds on, but do want to give the rescue's dogs treats (for training, and just to show them love).

    It wonderful that the products are organic, grain free, allergy friendly, but I was so surprised to read  "and with ingredients from cruelty free farmers."  I think that's important but usually not seen.  Thanks for the review.

      As a pet owner, that was a big deal to me! It seems wrong to support companies who think its okay to abuse their livestock. Yes, they may be going to food, but they are still living creatures!

    I love the fact that they are all Natural products.  I'm sure my Beau would love them.

    I love the fact that they are natural. My dog is very picky about her treats. I wonder if she would like these?

    Thank you for posting this. We buy our puppy Blue Buffalo and it is so expensive. Especially for our family who now more then ever is on a strict very tight budget. I will be definitely be purchasing from there. It will be nice on the budget that we can get her more treats to chew and enjoy without braking bank.

    • Susan Bewley August 19, 2013 at 12:36 pm - Reply

      Yes, buying things for the pup is very expensive, especially when you are on a budget. Reya would eat us out of house and home if we bought all of her natural treats at local pet stores!

  12. Marti Parks August 17, 2013 at 6:12 am - Reply

    Some of the natural choices can get really expensive and it can be frustrating. These products sound like a really good choice and I bet my dog would love them. Thanks for all the information.

    Wow, what an awesome review!!  These sound perfect for my very picky furdoggie.  She will not eat something she doesn't like.  I hate giving her anything with chemicals in it, which makes these even better.  And packaging healthy for the planet.  ^5!

    I have a Basset Hound that is allergic to Chicken and Beets so I am very pleased and hopeful about the Venison Ears! I will definitely check out this Company.

    Thanks for the excellent review, and for letting us know about this Company!

    I really like that these are grain-free and has natural ingredients. I'm glad they're NOT made in China. My dog especially likes jerky treats.

    I have to let my daughter know about this for her pomeranian. She use to give her jerky but then we heard on the news of the many animals having illnesses or loss of life with them. They were the dogs favorite too so since then, it has been difficult finding a treat she likes.

    It's great that companies are trying to offer us healthy snacks for our pets.  My daughter researches a lot about food and treats for our dog, but -just like people food- the information is confusing and misleading at times.  I like that a company is going to offer products good for your four legged family members.

    I love hearing about organic dog food/ treat brands! I love my dog like one of my kids, and I care just as much what she eats. It always makes me weary when purchasing dog food that is not organic. Thankyou for sharing about such a great brand, I will have to see what my dog thinks of them 🙂

    I'd love to win these for any of our precious  beyond loved and beyond spoiled granddoggies. I like the sounds of the chicken jerky ones the best.

    I like they reduce their overall carbon pawprint and being 100% wind powered is awesome. I didn't know some pet treats were made with chemicals like bleach. I will be reading labels more closely and looking into these products. Thank you

    I would like to try their treats for my 4 dogs.  I try to research for good natural food, and sometimes its hard to find, or they are too expensive.  Thanks for sharing.

    I have been purchasing dog food, treats, supplements and natural medicines from this site for years and years. I love their brand. The food is awesome, safe, uber-healthy and dependably nutritious. It is easy to regulate health conditions and dog weight with this food and you don't have to feel guilty about the snacks because they are made in the US with the highest quality ingredients. I also use their monthly auto-ship so I don't have to think about running out of dog food – and it's 10% off on auto-ship!

    With all of the recalled treats lately, I love to find all-natural chews for my 2 pups and my foster pup.  They really love bully sticks, but we have not tried venison ears.  Thanks you for having natural products that are healthy!

    • Susan Bewley August 22, 2013 at 1:43 pm - Reply

      I’m really worried after this review we are going to have to do a subscription service for venison ears. If Reya sees a venison ear, she immediatly sits and starts acting like a ‘good girl’. I highly recommed them!

    I have been a fan and a customer of Only Natural Pet Store for a few years. Their products are of high quality, safe, all natural and good for my fur babies. The advices and information they provide on their blog and facebook page are invaluable. I buy all the puppy & kitty treats from them. Bully sticks are especially my babies' favorite, and I make sure I always have some on hand!

    Only Natural Pet Store is the only site I've actually blogged about and shared on my Facebook page.   I love their line of raw dietary food and the plentiful reviews and item descriptions on each page.  One time there was a delay in an order and they actually sent me a pack of buffalo sticks for free to make up for it!  Love this store.  Thanks for sharing.  🙂

    I have never tried only natural pet products but would like to. I do alot of research as well trying to find the best pet foods and treats out there. It's exceptionally hard to find good quality and safe chicken jerky. I know my dogs would love these treats!!

    Thank you for posting information and your reviews on this store! I've really been looking for some treats for my Yorkies that aren't "Made in China" or "Made in Mexico." One of my mom's friends lost her beloved shih tzu to arsenic poisoning from some treats that were made in China. It's unfortunate that the FDA doesn't regulate ALL edibles that come in from other countries.

    I have a golden retriever with very sensitive skin.  We find that the more natural the product, the more likely he is not going to have a reaction.  Of course this is true for shampoo, but especially for food and treats.  These products look great and they probably would not cause his skin to flake so much.

    I reaalyv like this review. It had been so hard to find natural treats for my dog. She loves to chew, but I learned real quick that those other things at retail stores are not good for her. I started going to a feed store in town and they sold a few natural products for her to chew on, but they were pricy. I am definitelygoingto be checking out this website to get my girl some good stuff.
