I recently had a chance to try the Dear Deer freeze-dried dog treats and they are my favourite munchies now!
I get super excited whenever I see freeze-dried or dehydrated treats, due to their mouth-watering scent. Knowing that they contain health benefits, makes me love them more! Delicious and healthy treats? They are the best of both worlds!
Dear Deer originated from Hong Kong, and has been available in Singapore, thanks to Howlistic Life!
Their products come from a New Zealand deer ranch and do not contain any additives or preservatives. They are vacuumed and freeze-dried, allowing a longer shelf life while preserving all its nutrients.
I tried Dear Deer’s deer heart treats and it is paw-licking good! Deer heart is rich in amino acids, fatty acids, vitamins, and microelement. It helps strengthen your pets’ heart muscles and combat fatigue!
As they come in huge strips, mama tears them into smaller pieces and uses them as training treats.
Dear Deer has classified their treats into four main categories:
- Supplement series
- Powder series
- Teeth cleaning
- Healthy snacks
1. Supplement series
There are two products – Velvet and sinew supplement and sinew supplement.
Said to boost the immune system and tissue development, they also help to increase a dog’s strength. They can be used as a holistic treatment for ulcers and chronic joint problems. Both products come in the form of a tablet.
2. Powder series
The tastes of the deer sinew powder and deer liver powder will help induce a picky dog’s appetite. Ground from the freeze-dried products, it can be mixed with your pets’ daily diet.
The deer sinew powder strengthens bones and joints while the deer liver powder balances the immune system.
3. Teeth cleaning
There are ten deer products in this series:
- Neck steak
- knee cap
- Shank bone
- meaty bone
The last four products can clean your pet’s teeth and are durable enough to let them have a fun time!
The other products have other health benefits too. Click here to learn more about their benefits!
4. Healthy snacks
There are five products in this series:
These treats are best used as training treats and a convenient way to give your dog organs. They are all rich in protein and vitamins.
Smell: 9 – The smell is pretty minimal with no strong scent!

Ingredients: 10 – All natural and beneficial for my health, two paws up!
