Like prey in the wild, Vital Essentials raw meat diet provides the essential, natural nutrition necessary for peak performance, maintaining top body condition and building a foundation for a proactive health program. Carnivorous pets like dogs and cats thrive on our nutritionally balanced raw diet entrees. Made from the freshest, high quality, USDA meats, meaty bones and whole organ meats, you will never find grains, fillers, preservatives, coloring or rendered by-products in any of our products. Best if fed within 30 days after opening.
Grain-free and gluten-free freeze-dried beef dog food patties.
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 normally feed my dog raw. I had my dog sitter feed her this while I was on vacation. She did great on this.
My dog loves it

Our dog loves this food. It has no grain and stuff that she does not need.
Great dog food

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!!!!

My 2 standard poodles eat a raw diet. Unfortunately, they're not always hungry when I have to feed them, and raw food cannot be left out for a long period of time. If I have to leave before they decide it's time to eat, I leave the freeze dried raw Vital Essentials for them to graze on, and I don't have to worry about the food spoiling;they also love the beef mini nibs. The Vital Essentials provide the same pure raw food that I have in my freezer- my dogs love it, and Vital Essentials makes my life easier to manage.

I got these instead of the mini patties, I don’t remember why. I have Chihuahuas and the chunks and/or pieces in it are a bit bigger....maybe. I will buy mini patties as I usually did next order. They are eating it anyway. Great food!!!
Viral Essentials 10/10 !!

As a firm believer in the Alpha Prey Model Diet, I was keen on finding the most natural raw diet for my pups.
If you're the same... look no further!

I feel like I'm giving her nutritionally good food and I use it with the Tylee's. She is a 13 y/o Flat Coat Retriever and seems to do very well on this combo
