Minties and Vitamin Chews. A Jasmine and Chewy Exclusive.

How can you resist those eyes???  Jaz has the best/ worst "Puppy Dog" eyes and expressions out of any dog I've ever had.  How could I not give her a treat after getting "the look"??

I think this is Jasmine's favorite part of the job.  We get asked to do product reviews, and Jasmine and Chewy are the taste testers.   As soon as Jasmine heard me open the bag, she resorted to doing her begging stance immediately.  (See pic below).   This is her way of asking "please can I have some??  Pleeeaaaaaase????"

The product we were trying out is Vet IQ's "Vitamin Chews" and "Minties".  We started with the Vitamin Chews for Jasmine.  (Because they are liver flavored, and that's her favorite.)  I am highly selective of the treats Jasmine gets to have.  (Mainly because of her allergies.)  But the Vitamin Chews are wheat-free, and made in the USA.  So I'm ok with letting her try them.  They were a big hit.  She loved them.  She's taken other doggy vitamins before- but these ones are a soft chew, so it's easier to get her to take them. And it gives her 19 essential vitamins/ minerals.  The only downside is- because they are vitamins, she can only have one a day.  Try telling that to your begging dog with big puppy dog eyes.

Chewy got to try the Minties.  (I had to convince Jaz that she needed to share!)  Chewy lives here now, so he gets to start doing the taste testing too.
Chewy is a very careful chewer.  (You could think the big dog would gobble it down, and the little dog would delicately chew the food.)  Nope- it's the opposite in my house.  Jaz gulps everything down.  Chewy slowly savors the moment.

The Minties are not made with wheat, corn, or soy.  (Gluten Free)  So that's important for Jasmine's allergies.  They are also made in the USA.  (a MUST for any of my dogs.)  The dental treats are minty, and help to promote fresh breath.  (Important before doggy play dates.)  ;)  

So- after our taste testing product review- I can honestly report that both dogs give their treat 2 paws up.  Jaz wants to know why we can't just do this for a job full time.

Well, that's because I don't get paid to do product reviews.  These companies just contact me, then send me their treats/ toys/ dog products to try out with Jaz and Chewy.  Then we write what we think about it.  (Although, like I said, I am selective about which products we'll review.)  I'm picky about what I give my dogs.  I only review good quality products.  

So there you have it!  The Jasmine and Chewy Exclusive Report on Minties and Vitamin Chews.

The opinions in this blogpost are my own.  I do not work for, or with, any brand mentioned in this blogpost, nor do I have any official relationship with them.  I have a relationship with GigaSavvy, for whom I create original editorial content.  


  1. Its so good to see Jasmine doing reviews again. Happy that Chewy gets to help her out.

  2. Doing reviews is fun and sometimes enlightening. In your case, companies are very lucky to get a primo model like Jasmine to help out!
