    Dog love them

    By JoyC on Oct 7, 2020

    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 deamo on Jul 16, 2020

    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 product

    I normally feed my dog raw. I had my dog sitter feed her this while I was on vacation. She did great on this.

    Great addition to raw diet!!

    By on

    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.

    Great....for big dog

    By on

    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!!!
