Zuke’s® Introduces Lil’ Links Sausage Treats to Stores Nationwide

Zuke's Pet Performance Nutrition continues to give dogs something to wag about with the new crazy-tasty Lil’ Links sausage treats.

Durango, Colo. (July 26, 2012) – Zuke's Pet Performance Nutrition continues to give dogs something to wag about with the new crazy-tasty Lil’ Links sausage treats. The new healthy sausage links are human companion-approved as they deliver all-natural, grain-free, antioxidant-rich ingredients to benefit the overall wellness of canines in a great-tasting treat dogs just can’t resist. Lil’ Links are hitting retail stores nationwide now.

Like all Zuke’s treats, the new Lil’ Links are made in the USA and do not contain corn, wheat or soy. Lil’ Links are Zuke’s first-ever sausage shaped treat and are available in three delicious flavors: rabbit with apple, pork with apple, and chicken with apple.

Lil’ Links are made with 100-percent real meat and contain no meat by-product. Meat is the first ingredient found in the treats, with no artificial color or grain to supplement and is supplemented by all natural ingredients including apples, potatoes, carrots and seasoned with antioxidant-rich herbs.

“During product development and testing, Zuke’s employee dogs couldn’t get enough of the irresistible meaty taste of the Lil’ Links,” said Zuke’s Founder, Patrick Meiering. “Little do they know that something that tastes so good, could be so good for them!”

The new Lil’ Links treats are housed in Zuke’s newly designed packaging, which illustrates “Triumphant Zuke” hiking the Appalachian Trial on the U.S. East Coast. All of Zuke’s new packaging designs for 2012 bring Zuke’s namesake, Zuke the Chocolate Lab, to life by depicting him actively playing in outdoor, dog-friendly destinations across the nation.

The new Lil’ Links are available three tasty flavors: Rabbit and Apple, Chicken and Apple and Pork and Apple. Each 6oz. package is $7.99 MSRP. For more information about Zuke’s, please visit, http://www.zukes.com.
