    I think it's going to be Cloud Star for Sansa and me! I also really like the Mini Naturals. I'm pretty bummed about the whole situation. I've also bought and used their Z-Filets, but in any case, I'd rather support a smaller company that is independent over a large conglomerate.

    Here's the cloud star info for their mini naturals alternative. Kouda was a big fan of the salmon flavor

    Also their "gingerbread man" shaped treats are fun.

    I've only tried their chewy treats, since Kouda isn't a fan of biscuit types.

    @lindsayt. Haha. I wish I could do the same!!! But my husband would call me a hoarder :(

    I will definitely try out Cloud Star as Zandrame posted. Price-wise they're a little bit more expensive than Zukes, but I guess it can't be avoided at this point!

    @curlytails I looked up the EVO/Innova after its been acquired by P&G...There are many owners who claimed their pets have suddenly developed allergies or reactions to the kibble which they have fed their pets for years. Even though EVO/Innova "claims" to not have changed the formula.

    Sigh. There should be a law to help protect us consumers, and demand these companies to announce changes to their recipes.

    The fruitables smell awesome in my opinion. Especially the mango! :) Kouda was never a big fan of them though, guess he prefers MEAT!

    We tried the ziwipeak, but the texture is a bit crumbly and greasy. Our go-to jerky type treat is Real Meat, we get the large bags on Amazon and tear them into smaller pieces

    We also get the freeze dried single source treats from Orijen, which are a hit, but pricey. (We save these for high value).

    Other freeze dried brands we've liked are Etta's

    and Whole Life

    @zandrame, coincidentally enough I picked up a bag of Real Meat brand venison jerky and it's been a big hit. I may go with that from now on instead of the Z-Filets from Zuke's.

    The Orijen freeze dried treats are also a huge hit at my house, but they are pricey! I also save them for high value.
