Milo’s Kitchen Home-Style Dog Treats Review

Rachel Phelps
Written by Rachel Phelps

Recently, I got to try out some new dog treats that was just released by Del Monte Foods (they make Milk-Bones, Kibble ‘n Bits, and Pup-Peroni) The new treats are called Milo’s Kitchen. Honestly, I never did figure out why they were called Milo and who Milo was but man these treats are delicious! I tried out four flavors

  • Beef Sausage Slices with Rice
  • Beef Jerky
  • Chicken Meatballs
  • Chicken Jerky

These treats are made out of 100% real jerky, sausage slices, chicken, and meatballs. There is also no artificial flavors, colors, or fillers in these treats. When mom opened the bag they smelled so good! My parents even commented that these smell delicious and it is making them hungry. But you better believe I made sure they didn’t take a single bite of MY treats. I was also a nice brother and gave Elvis one as granted I had at least five treats of every flavor but Elvis doesn’t know that. He thinks they only sent one package! I know I’m a sneaky dog!

Overall, Milo’s Kitchen is another quality dog product from Del Monte foods! I have two paws up and a tummy for Milo’s Kitchen dog treats.

I will leave you with the out takes of the photo shoot of me with the treats. Needless to say I was thinking mom was taking way to long to get the I left the set hehehehe!

Your Pal,

  • I so agree with you Preston about Milo’s Kitchen treats! Those are just pawsome. I also have tried all the different flavors and I don’t know if I can pick a favorite. Mom keeps a small bag of them in the car for when we are out and I am good. Yum yum makes my mouth water to think about them!

  • The chicken treats are made in China, read the package. Chicken treats from China are widely blamed for pet deaths and other ailments. Just google it. Why can’t they make chicken jerky in the good old USA?

    • Jay,

      Thank you for bring that to our attention..I’ll e-mail my contacts at Milo’s and I’ll post their reply to your concern.

  • Jay,

    Here is the response I got from the company when I asked them about your concern.

    I heard the AVMA has sent out a warning regarding chicken jerky treats made in China?

    Recently, the Canadian Veterinarian Medical Association (CVMA) sent a notice regarding several cases in which dogs showing similar symptoms of illness had also reportedly been fed chicken jerky treats made in China. In response, the American Veterinarian Medical Association (AVMA) asked its members to report any similar cases. To date, the AVMA or CVMA have not been able to identify any cause or connection between the illness and treats.

    Are Milo’s Kitchen™ products made in China?

  • My dog got a Milos meatball stuck at the end of her esophagus. She swallowed it whole and it did not dissolve, but expanded.
    I had to euthanize my dog. Please give these treats with caution.
    My dog was a maltese and weighed 13 lbs.

    Do yourself a favor and take a meatball and put it in a glass of water and see what happens in the next 12 hours. My dog suffered her last hours.
    RIP Bean, I will love you forever.

  • My mother fed her dog the treats that were made in China, 24 hours later the dog is near death. We rushed the dog to the vet, the dog’s gums were white. After a blood transfusion and 12 hours later the dog is orange, eyes, paw pads. tongue and gums.

    • Brian,

      Oh gosh what a terrible thing to happen to your dog. Did the vet say the illness was linked to the treats?

  • I gave my dogs the chicken jerky (Milos Kitchen) yesterday and today and one of them, the yellow lab mix, 65 pounds, 9 months was throwing up anything she ate. She has not been able to keep anything down, except water. I thought of what was different, and it was only these treats. I went online and discovered that the FDA has warned against chicken jerky treats, especially made in China, which these are. Deaths have been reported. I hope my dog gets better – she didn’t eat that many. The other dog, a german shepherd, 2 yrs old, does not seem to have any reaction to the treat. Please be cautioned against the “chicken jerky”, and chicken in general for dogs, as I am discovering so many dogs are allergic to it.

    • Meg,

      We hope your dog is feeling better. If you haven’t already please, please take him to the vet, his illness may or may not be related to the treats and the vet will be able to tell you that as well as get him some medicine so he will stop throwing up.


  • I bought my dog these treats 2 weeks ago and she was a little sick with diahreah but I figured maybe it was just something she ate.. like table food. But today I come home and she’s throwing up everywhere !! I googled the Chicken Jerky treats and it seems like everyone is having the same problem. She’s a little hot but is running around and seems to be a little better now. Meg – is your dog ok after you stopped giving her treats?? I’m worried about my dog….

  • I feed my dog (male choc. lab) california natural dry dog food and always have. He is almost 13 and except for a little arthritis he is very healthy. For treats, he gets small carrot sticks and fresh green beans from the grocery. He loves both. Eating things like milos treats are like eating rawhide chews….bad news….they can get stuck in the esophogus or be swallowed hole and can cause all kinds of problems.

  • Both my dogs got very ill after eating Mirlo’s Chicken Jerky strips.
    Please remove all of the China pet products of market shelves.
