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.

    Dog love them

    By on

    My dog's love them. Only reason it isn't 5 stars. If you feed dry, some dogs will try to just take the whole thing down and choke. So wet or brake into smaller pieces.

    Not happy with this brand

    By on

    I was looking for something softer after hydrating. These are hard as a rock. I have soaked them in water overnight also. Do you know that cardboard that is used for packaging? That is what these are like. Not for us. Still searching.

    Huge beef patties

    By on

    I made a mistake when ordering these for my 17 pound dog. They are huge and have to be broken to try and get right amount for her. This was my mistake, not the product. Will order same product, but in the smaller patties next time.

    excellent travel option for raw feeders!

    By on

    We raw feed, which means when we travel or go backpacking for extended time, a cooler isn’t an option. This freeze dried raw is one of 3 brands we LOVE and mix/rotate for extended trips. It’s actually balanced (contains bone and proper organ percentages) and the dogs love it. It’s harder to break apart than the other brands we use, as the patties are larger and a bit stiffer/denser, but since we prep and pack all meals before our trip, this isn’t an issue on the road. The price has gone up since we first started buying, which is a downside, but the quality is great, so we’ll keep using it!!

    Easy and economical way to fed raw

    By on

    I love this brand and so does my Yorkie. I put her on a raw diet to help with her dental health and pickiness. I do not have time to prepare my own raw food nor do I feel comfortable making sure she would be getting the nutrition she needs. Vital Essentials is the answer. Top quality ingredients, easy prep, great price point, and dog LOVES it! This size bag is very economical for us since she is a toy breed dog. The calorie content is also higher per ounce than the beef mini patties and the blend includes tripe, which is great. These patties are HUGE and generously sized. I just cut them into thirds and then crumble and rehydrate. I will never put her back on kibble. I only wish they made these I love this brand and so does my Yorkie.

    Great dog food

    By on

    Vital Essentials is a great food but it’s expensive. My dog had a reaction to regular kibble and since feeding him this he’s 100 percent better!! I do mix it with a homemade food as well to cut down on the cost. I’d highly recommend it!!!!
