Duck with Superfood Dog Treats
Could a treat be any healthier? Let’s see: these nutrition bombs combine protein-packed duck, fiber-rich, beta-carotene-loaded sweet potatoes and carrots, superfood blueberries and kale, probiotic goat milk—and nothing else. And then they’re freeze-dried so not a single sliver of nutrition is lost.
Dog owners will love that Duck Superfood Treats are:
- Made from cage-free duck organ meat from Maple Leaf Farms
- Freeze-dried to preserve all the raw, whole food nutrition
- Perfect for chicken-sensitive pooches
- Crafted with farm-fresh foods from the Pacific Northwest
- Rich in beta carotene, fiber, and vitamins A, E, and C (just to name a few)
- Backed by our Love It Guarantee™
- Available in the US only
Pup Wellness Tip: Just like humans, dogs need mental stimulation—it keeps their brains sharp and their days interesting. Pop a nutritious treat in a West Paw treat toy for a challenge AND a reward. (Best day ever.)
We won’t duck our responsibility. Maple Leaf Farms is the first duck producer in America to establish Duck Well-Being Guidelines, ensuring their flocks live in ideal conditions with ample light and fresh air. What’s more, they created the Trident Stewardship Program to help other farms do the same—all while running a sustainable, community-minded duck farm.
Safely preserved, without a single additive. Our freeze-drying process incorporates high-pressure pasteurization (HPP)—every treat is subjected to pressures greater than what you’d find in the deepest trench of the ocean. Pathogens and bacteria can’t take it (buh-bye!), but the flavor and nutrition are perfectly retained—no preservatives or additives required.
B Corps are the good guys: companies who champion the right thing—for staff, customers, and the environment. We’re proud to be not just a member, but a four-time winner of the Best for the World: Environment award.
We’ve been family-owned and operated since 1996. Pets aren’t the only ones we treat like family—we’ve also been named “Best Place to Work in Montana” as well as “One of America's Best Small Companies” by Forbes Magazine.

Beef Liver and Pumpkin treat contain a small amount of a natural preservative called lysine.
- My peanut butter banana creamy treat is oily or has separated, is this normal?
Our Peanut Butter Banana treat uses freshly ground peanuts and like any natural peanut butter in your pantry, the oil can separate. Our recommendation is to knead the tube prior to opening.
- Is there any sugar in any of your treats?
There are zero added sugars in our treats.

- Is your Peanut Butter and Banana Creamy Treat Vegan?
Yes. Our Banana Creamy Treat does not contain any animal byproducts.
- Your treats are grain-free, what about DCM?
Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a serious issue in some dogs. According to the Journal of Animal Science, there is no link between grain-free foods to DCM.
We recommend those dog owners who are concerned about DCM should work with their vets and trusted experts as well as feed their dogs a balanced diet and monitor and control their dogs' caloric intake (including the amount of treats).
- Is your sourcing from humane/sustainable farms? How do you know that?
We work with the American Grassfed Association (AGA) as well as with our processor and co-packer to make sure the proteins are sourced from farms and ranches that humanely and sustainably raise their livestock. The pork in our treats is raised humanely without hormones or antibiotics in Washington State at a farm that prioritizes earth-friendly practices.
- Where are your treats manufactured?
Freeze dried treats are made in Oregon and packaged in Utah.
Creamy treats are made and packaged in Utah.
- Can you freeze your creamy treats?
Yes you can freeze the freeze dried treats for storage, but it is not necessary.
We do not recommend freezing the creamy treats for storage. The Beef Liver and Pumpkin should be refrigerated.
If you are preparing a treat mix in a Toppl or other toy to freeze, all our treats can be frozen in a toy for a cool and refreshing treat.
- Does freeze drying affect nutritional content of the food?
We believe that freeze drying does not affect the nutritional content of our foods. However, some proponents of raw foods for pets may argue that processing of any sort has the potential to change the nutritional content. We have chosen to freeze dry to be as close to raw as possible, with added safety for pets. There are no health risks to ingesting freeze dried foods.
Delicious and healthy treats

I received these treats for my dogs as part of a promotion. My 2 corgis enjoyed being the taste testers. And mom enjoyed the fact that they duck dog treats were made with 6 ingredients and no fillers. They were a big hit with the corgis and we'll definitely be reordering in the future.
