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.

  • First time is a big hit!

    By on

    I thought that I would try this after reading the ingredients and use it as a supplement to her food, which is top quality. She loves her original food, but this food drives her wild. She loves it. I add a little water and wait five minutes or less, and it is ready to go. Highly recommended.

  • Amazing product!

    By on

    I admit, I was a bit hesitant because I didn't think 'nibs' is an appropriate term for food. However, the short list of ingredients (all meat, bones, organs) really convinced me to give them a chance. I'm glad I did! The smell isn't the best, especially after you soak them in some hot water, but our dog really likes it. His poops have looked better in consistency and and size. The only thing is, we're not sure how much water to mix with the food. It can be fed dry, but we prefer to have some moisture in his food.

  • Buddy loves this food!

    By on

    My fathers little Buddy has always had a sensitive stomach, changing him over to this food has been worth the extra cost since he hasn't gotten a case of sour stomach pukies since. Thank you Vital Essentials!

  • Great for dogs with sensitive stomachs

    By on

    My dachshund mix (like most doxies, I'm sure) will eat anything and everything, and he's had frequent bouts of diarrhea on other foods. I was tired of seeing the vet only for a temporary situation and trying to track down a food that would help balance his system. So I decided to cut out all the filler formulas and go completely raw. I switched him over to VE cold turkey, and he has NEVER had diarrhea since. The results were instant. I've tried all the other VE protein sources, and I regularly switch them up on him without issue. Occasionally, I'll add in raw veggies (sweet potato, pumpkin, etc.) to give him a little extra.

  • Can't Resist

    By on

    My dog absolutely loves this food. He does not hesitate to scarf it down and lick the bowl clean! I add warm water to the mini nibs which makes the food even more delicious. He has a very sensitive stomach and can't eat a lot of dog food or treats. This food totally agrees with him. Chewy offers the best price and delivers the food quickly.

  • My dogs didn't like this food

    By on

    We've used several different freeze dried foods but this one was not a hit in our house. Some completely refused it, others nibbled and left the rest.

  • My 4 dogs LOVE Vital Essentials Freeze Dried Raw

    By on

    We use as a topper and treats. We switch it up between the Beef and the Duck and they are both loved Equally. The texture is more like a Kibble-- not soft like other freeze dried product- makes it easy to carry when used as treats.

  • WOW! What an amazing dog food!

    By on

    Can only recommend this dog food. I have tried so many different kind of freeze dried dog foods, but his one is the best of them all. Especially for dogs with yeast problems, allergies and with pancreatitis. My dogs love it. Switching to this food was a breeze. Can only recommend. By the way - I don't get paid for saying this in any way. :-)

  • My standard poodles love Vital essentials

    By on

    My standard poodles eat a raw diet- but sometimes even those following a predator diet need a little coaxing. I add the healthy freeze dried bits to enhance their diet and their appetites. My dogs love both the freeze dried beef and duck- a healthy supplement to their food. This is particularly important during warm weather when the food must be consumed quickly before spoiling, Vital Essentials entices them to finish their meal and adds nutrients to their diet.

  • Great Vital Essentials option for little dogs

    By on

    I've used VE frozen raw and the larger nibs, but had never seen these mini-nibs. They are great for my little dog, I appreciate that Chewy has such a good selection of VE products. Love the company's products for both my cats and my dog.
