Business Insider names these meat-heavy treats from Orijen the “best freeze-dried cat treats” and they were selected as the overall best cat treat of 2018 on Reviews.com.
Made with fresh regional wild boar, goat, venison, and arctic char, these treats rely solely on freeze-dried muscle meat and organs to deliver protein, fat, and deliciousness. Although crunchy extruded treats usually beat freeze-dried treats in taste tests, these treats do surprisingly well. Cats seem to love them. Maybe it’s because three different types of fresh liver feature prominently on the ingredient list.
The freeze-drying process makes these treats safer than raw meat to handle and store, but it doesn’t destroy the delicate nutrient profile of raw meat, making these treats as nourishing as chunks of raw flesh. Unlike other freeze-dried treats, Orijen’s Tundra treats are quite cohesive and don’t disintegrate in the bag, meaning that you don’t have to worry about buying a bag of meat powder.
While some treats, especially those marketed for both cats and dogs, are ever-so-slightly too large to use as a training tool, these treats are small and low in calories.
