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 have been wanting to switch to raw for my dogs but having 8 dogs (4 large/4 small) it is cost prohibitive. However, one of my small dogs is overweight and was not losing weight and the weight was causing pain in her back knees. So I started giving her VE Raw nibs for her meals and she is now losing weight. And so my other dogs can enjoy the raw taste, I grind a handful up and sprinkle the powdered nibs over their regular food. They all love VE. If I were a rich person, I would switch all my dogs to VItal Essentials.
Dogs like the food

All my dogs seem to really like this food. I got it as they have been turning their noses up at their meals. When I use this, they usually eat all of it. I like it, but it is beyond my budget when feeding multiple dogs. I am glad I tried it and will order it periodically.

Omg! This is like crack for dogs! They were on it like white on rice. Only negative is that each dog needed their own bowl or they’d growl at each other. I noticed right away that their bodies used most of the food for fuel as their poops became noticeably smaller. They also had more energy and coats are looking good.
MY PICKY EATER ACTUALLY EATS THIS!!
on Jun 2, 2018
Finding something which my most picky little dog would eat was difficult.... we tried all kinds of brands and all kinds of foods. When I ordered this, I didn't have a lot of hope that this one would do any better than the numerous previous tries. I am very glad to report, however, that my picky little rascal took a few sniffs and began eating like this was what he had been waiting for all his life! I have to laugh now, watching him eating. Before I would have to put some chicken juice or something on his food to get him to eat anything other than people food. Now he is happy and so am I!!! Now I get all the flavors and switch them around for variety and he is happy as a piglet in new mudFinding something which my most picky little dog would eat was difficult.... we tried all kinds of brands and all kinds of foods.

I was hesitant to re-order these after a recall of some of their products but ordered some to take to herding camp.
We use these for training treats and our puppy loves them. They are just the right size for catch the kibble game.

My little Maltese loved the Vital beef Essentials from her fist bite. They have definitely replaced her previous favorite dry food.

I have bought this product twice now. The first bag I bought, the nibs were larger and I had to cut them before hydrating. The new bag has smaller nibs, which makes it much easier.
My little Yorkie loves it- my reason for reordering!

My German Shepherd has his neuter surgery yesterday and today he didn't want to eat his regular kibble even tried canned food had no interest. I knew he liked these as treats so I gave it to him and gobbled it right up. So happy I got him to eat so he could take his medications.

Eh. Nothing Special

Neither my Shih Tzu nor my St. Bernard went crazy for this one. They are more excited about Stella & Chewy than this brand.
