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.

Customer Reviews

Vital Essentials Turkey Freeze-Dried Dog & Cat Food Topper is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money! 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kitty loves it My kitty loves raw toppers! I add a sprinkle to his food every meal, if I don't add it, he won't eat!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hard to tell 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for a picky eater! 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!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's o.k. I love the Vital Essentials products, however this topper was a bit finer grain than I expected...almost like cornmeal consistency. Though the product is good quality I will go back to purchasing the kibble like Vital Essential food for a bit more crunch for my dog to add to her wet food.
