Grain-free and gluten-free freeze-dried beef dog food patties are perfect for small breeds or as treats for large breeds.
Complete and balanced single protein diet is ideal for any dogs with food sensitivities or allergies and can be fed as a treat, topper or a complete meal.
No added hormones, antibiotics, colors, fillers, flavorings and no synthetic vitamins or minerals.
Exclusive freeze-drying process retains all active nutritional elements in the food while allowing the food to be safely and conveniently stored without refrigeration.
Feed up to double the amount for puppies and pregnant or nursing dogs.
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.
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
I love this nutritional profile out of all the raw I have used.I took off 1 star for the recalls this company had and the price. I have 3 big dogs and can only use as a topper.
another hit at meal time

My baby loves this flavor like many of the other Vital Essentials lines. I’m giving it a 5 star rating not because she gobbles it up (since that’s an individual dog preference) but because I think they have gold quality foods and I can pronounce and trust all the ingredients. I like that nothing is sourced from China.
Not so good

Pup doesn't much like these. Very fibrous and coarse. He much prefers Stella and Chewy to this.
Great single protein

My two love the Vital Essentials brand. We tried the patties for the first time. They like them dry and wet. They are easy to break up. I usually combine these with the Vital Essentials Nibblets for their dinner.
This saved my dog’s life

My 14 year old papillon had been dealing with diarrhea off and on for three years. After umpteen worming and visits and treatments from 3 different vets, a canine nutritionist turned me to Vital Essentials. No more diarrhea!! He had become allergic to elements in most dry foods and even some canned foods.
