Transition Instructions

Switch to a purely RAW diet slowly. Some pets may take to RAW immediately, while others may take longer. Take at least 10 days to 2 weeks to gradually transition your pet’s diet. This gives the digestive system time to adjust to the new food.

  • Step 1: Choose a protein (stick with the same protein for the first 2 weeks)
  • Step 2 (Day 1-3): Serve 25% RAW mixed with 75% current food
  • Step 3 (Day 4-6): Serve 50% RAW mixed with 50% current food
  • Step 4 (Day 7-9): Serve 75% RAW mixed with 25% current food
  • Step 5 (Day 10 and after): Serve 100% RAW

Always provide access to clean, fresh water.

  • Does NOT reconstitute well.

    By on

    The only con I have about this food is that the "nibblets" do not reconstitute well. I have tried soaking them in water (in the fridge) for 2 days and they only get slightly mushy. My dog needs a food the consistency of pate so that was my only disappointment. No where on this site nor the Vital Essentials site does it say to reconstitute the food, however every other dehydrated raw I have seen, states to reconstitute it. I will be reaching out to the company to see. However ALL my dogs love the taste of this food (Beef) including one dog who has not touched dry food in years. This food is also the best value I have found. A 1lb bag will last my 9lb dog almost 3 weeks, which is a week The only con I have about this food is that the "nibblets" do not reconstitute well.

  • Especially Good for Treats

    By on

    I meant to order the patties and got these by mistake. My dogs love them so I will order again. I use them as toppers and training treats. My cat even likes the smaller ones. I also order the Beef Mini Patties on a regular basis which I usually re-hydrate. The nibblers don't re-hydrate as well but the dogs love them as a crunchy treat.

  • Not for crumbling

    By on

    While I do believe this is a good product for my dog, they are impossible to break up. Next time I would purchase the mini size. The dog likes it either way.

    By on

    These seem to be well tolerated by my dogs who have sensitive digestive systems. Still mixing 1/2 and 1/2 with their previous food but so far so good.

  • My Kiwi loves it!

    By on

    My cockapoo developed food allergies to storage mites which are in all dry dog food. She was also a bit of a picky eater. I switched to this food, and she LOVES it! I mix it with some warm water to make some gravy, and she can't wait for meal time. So happy to see her love what she's eating. I even bought the mini nuggets which I use for treats. A bit expensive? Yes, but so worth it to know I'm giving her something she loves and is healthy for her. Recommended!

  • super training treats

    By on

    Dogs love 'em -they are raw fed so refuse grainy treats. They do well in my pockets without crumbs. They are very light so many treats can be handed out without increasing calories.

    Love Chewy, but probably won't order this particular product for my little Maltese rescues. They just didn't like it.
