Feeding Instructions

Add as a topper, supplement with your current food or feed as a complete meal. Can be fed as is or rehydrated with warm water. After adding water let sit for a few minutes and then serve. Supplemental Feeding: 1-3 scoops per meal Complete Meal Feeding: tightly pack each scoop, scoop is included inside bag

  • 3 Ib pet . . . . . . . 1 scoop
  • 6 Ib pet . . . . . . . 2 scoops
  • 12 Ib pet . . . . . . 4 scoops
  • 24 Ib pet . . . . . . 8 scoops

Feed up to double the amount for puppies and pregnant or nursing dogs. Individual requirements may vary.

Wash hands, utensils, counters, food dishes and related areas thoroughly with hot, soapy water after each feeding. Store freeze-dried products in a cool dark place. Best if fed within 30 days after opening.

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.

  • Waste of money!

    By on

    I had this product in a sample. The sample consisted of bite sized pieces, which my cat could not get enough of. I bought this product thinking it was the same as what was in the sample. Nowhere in the listing is this product described as "crumbs." Product description is misleading. Gives the impression that cats will love it. "Any way you serve it, you can't go wrong." Don't believe it! My boy won't touch it! Won't even touch his food with it!

  • Raw meal topper for cats

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    I put just a PINCH of the V.E. freeze dried topper on top of my cat's raw meals, to stimulate appetite as needed. A bag goes a long way because you really only need a tiny bit to encourage a cat!

    My dogs eat raw and I added this thinking it would be a fun and tasty bonus. Neither dog was impressed. Will not buy again!

  • Hard to tell

    By on

    The first few times I sprinkled this topper on my cats' food, they ate it like they were starving. They are not so enthused any more and I'm not sure why. I didn't use the topper for a few weeks thinking they have just grown tired of it. But they still aren't so excited about seeing it on their food. They do, however, eventually eat it. So I'm still considering this a good product. I just may not buy it immediately after it runs out.

    My kitty loves raw toppers! I add a sprinkle to his food every meal, if I don't add it, he won't eat!

  • They like it

    This helps as a topper for some of the wet flavors we have but they don't like much, little warm water and a scoop of this and they eat it.

  • Ernie says "yum"

    My dog just loves this stuff! If I mix a bit in with his usual low-cal kibble which he normally disdains, he scarfs it up.

    I had heard about this topper from some friends and decided to give it a try. My wheaton terrier loved it and she is a very picky eater. I will be ordering more soon!

    I use this as a topper over the kibble I feed my 2 doggies and they LOVE it. Chewy.com has the BEST price and the FASTEST shipping.

  • Good for picky eaters

    By on

    I'm transitioning my cat from kibble to wet food, and this is a great help. My cat seems to really like it. I like the texture- it's easy to sprinkle on top of the wet food with the little scoop. I also like that it's raw. I'll probably try some of the other flavors soon.
