Alpo Liv-a-Snaps Dog Treats: A Review

Alpo Variety Snaps. My dogs will do almost anything for a Liv-a-Snap!

In fact, my dogs will do anything for even the tiniest smidgen of a Liv-a-Snap dog treat!

I’m not kidding.

For some reason, Alpo Snaps are like catnip to our dogs.

…and it’s definitely not a short-lived thing.

All 3 of my dogs have been crazy about Liv-a-Snaps ever since the first day I introduced them to the tasty treat over 8 years ago.



Why Liv-a-Snaps Are A Great Dog Treat

Well, I guess you’d have to ask my dogs to get to the real reason that Alpo Snaps are the best dog treats in the world…

But from my point of view, I’d have to say these are the best things about Alpo Liv-a-Snaps (or Alpo Variety Snaps):

Good texture. These oven-baked biscuits don’t crack or crumble into tiny pieces (thus, they’re not filled with air!) and they’ve got some substance to them.

Don’t need to be refrigerated. Despite the fact that they seem to have some moisture to them, they don’t have to be kept in the refrigerator (…like their other favorite dog treats do). No, Liv-a-Snaps aren’t soft treats — far from it — but they seem to have some real substance to them.

Easy to digest. The natural oat fiber in Liv-a-Snaps make for optimal digestion in your dog’s system.

Made with real liver. Dogs love liver!… It’s a source of high-quality protein for strong and health muscles.

Availability. You can find Liv-a-Snaps everywhere… from local supermarkets and grocery stores to top-of-the-line pet stores.

Variety of flavors. Inside each box of Variety Snaps, you get four different flavors of dog treats. From the box: “Bite-sized treats with real beef, chicken, liver & lamb flavors.”

Loaded with vitamins. The package says, “Enriched with 11 essential vitamins for healthy skin and coat.”

Low cost. A huge 16 oz. box of Alpo Liv-a-Snaps contains over 150 individual dog treats, yet it costs less than $3. Combine that with the fact that I sometimes break each one in half (or even smaller) before I toss them into the pet treat jar, and you’ve got lots of tasty dog treats at one heck of a bargain price!

I’m sure that’s a very subjective claim. Basically, the very act of chewing (particularly of hard, crunchy items) helps to scrape minor amounts of plaque off a dog’s teeth most of the time, thereby lessening any bad odors that might be building up inside the mouth.

Still, it might be a bit of a stretch to think that your dog’s breath will actually smell good now.

The fact remains, we’ve been buying Alpo Liv-a-Snaps for our dogs for years.

Our dogs love ’em. So, naturally, that means we do too!


All Dogs Love ‘Em!

Our dogs aren’t the only ones that love Alpo Livasnaps! They’re frequently found in veterinarian offices as well, since so many dogs love them.

I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money -- so I frequently write about "outside the box" ideas that most wouldn't think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed several years until switching gears to pursue things I was more passionate about. I've worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo -- to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
