Mama is always careful about what she feeds me as I have a weak digestive system. For one, she never let me try milk, for fear it might upset my tummy.
Well, not until now! When Mama gave me the green light to try Ewegurt Freeze-Dried Treats with Emu, I was so delighted. I can’t wait to get a taste of milk!
The treats are freeze-dried, which allows the ingredients to maintain their full nutritional value. While mama was a little put off by the smell of sheep’s milk, it was heavenly to me. I can also taste sweet potato in it – my absolute favourite!
6 Reasons Why We Love Ewegurt Sheep’s Milk Emu Treats
You can feed the freeze-dried crunchy treats just like that or rehydrate them to get your dog to drink more water.
Mama usually adds one tablespoon of water to three pieces of Ewegurt before breaking them up into smaller pieces for easier consumption. The treat size is a little big for small dogs like me but it is good for medium to large dogs.
Not only usable as a treat, Ewegurt works as a food topper too! Despite being a picky eater, I gobbled up my meal within seconds thanks to these treats!
2. Good ingredients only
Ewegurt’s ingredients are 100% natural, with no artificial flavours, colours, or preservatives, or hidden ingredients. That is why it is safe for puppies, senior dogs, and dogs with health issues.
Besides, what’s really special about these treats is that it contains sheep’s milk and tasty red meat emu, which are rare locally!
It is also good to know that both the pastured emu and sheep (where the milk comes from) are not given any growth hormones or artificial feed.
Here’s the full ingredient list:
Sheep’s Milk Yogurt (Sheep’s Milk, Yogurt Culture), Emu, Chia Seeds, Beets, Kale, Coconut Flour, Sweet Potato

3. Reduces stress and anxiety
Sheep’s milk is a vitamin- and mineral-rich powerhouse, which includes nature’s relaxant magnesium. Hence, for dogs with separation anxiety or over-excitement issues, it helps to calm them down and aids a good night’s sleep.
4. Boosts immune and digestive systems
Probiotics in yoghurt, together with chia seeds and coconut flour, can boost the immune system and improve digestive health.
It also increases metabolism and is suitable for lactose intolerant dogs.
5. Heart healthy
Emu is 97% fat-free and 43% monounsaturated, which reduces the risk of weight gain and heart and other health issues. That also means that if you are unable to resist those puppy eyes, it’s safe to give just a little bit more to fido.
6. Fights cancer and inflammation
Not only tasty, but all its ingredients may also help battle cancer cells and inflammation! Sheep’s milk, in particular, helps fight cancer better than cow’s milk as it contains more conjugated linoleic acid (CLA).
