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.

Vital Essentials Beef Entree Nibblets Grain-Free Freeze-Dried Dog Food is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 62.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from super training treats 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from the furkids didn't like it as well as some of the others. Love Chewy, but probably won't order this particular product for my little Maltese rescues. They just didn't like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dogs love this I recently started feeding my dogs Stella and Chewy's which they enjoyed, but they didn't seem as impressed until I added Vita Essentials which provides some crunch. With freeze dried dog food I love the fact that they are getting a raw diet, and that their is not unnecessary ingredients that I've seen with other dog foods. My dogs have refused other healthy labeled dog foods in the past. I started cooking for them and tried to balance their diet, but even after awhile they started rejecting any food that had the powdered dog nutrients added. I decided to try the freeze-dried food, and I have had great results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from outstanding product i have been looking for a while for something to feed my english bulldog. she does the best on beef and seems to be allergic to several things in kibble. even some preservatives seem to bother her. this she eats up like shes never eaten before and she is doing just great on this food. her energy level is good, her coat looks great, and she will have all her hair for the first time since ive had her. i love this food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Kiwi loves it! 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great food for my picky Yorkie :) I've spend so much time, energy & money trying to find a dry food that my ficky Yorkie would eat. He LOVES this food - even after 3 orders! The nibblet is rather dense & large for him (7 lbs), so I cut it in half with scissors. But I don't mind at all, since he actually ENJOYS eating it :) He also loves the Vital Essential Chicken Nibblets, which aren't as dense, although I still cut those in half as well. I'm thrilled that I discovered this food! It's the only dry food he'll eat without toppers or mixers.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from They did not stick up their nose My Bostons are very fussy and have been on raw most of their lives. Right now I have 4. They did not eat enough to see any changes in health, coat, etc. As I introduced the new food it was "just OK" But as they received more they ate less. The dish full of the freeze dried was not even half eaten. They were dropping it. Would not hurt them to drop a few pounds, but worry about not enough nutrition. I feel that the food is well mixed for the health of the dogs, but that it might just be to hard for them to enjoy. I also bought the chicken freeze dried. Beef would be rated better in taste and smell. The Bostons did eat the beef much better then the chicken, but still not the amount required to receive correct nutrition. One half the recommended amount or even less was left in the dish or all over the crate. This company also offers a frozen and that I rate as one of the best on the market.
