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.

    Great stuff and dogs love all VE please make larger bags for big dogs and the price should be lower so that people can afford good nutrition for their dogs. Otherwise this would be a 5 star!! I hope the company reads these messages

    another hit at meal time

    By on

    My baby loves this flavor like many of the other Vital Essentials lines. I’m giving it a 5 star rating not because she gobbles it up (since that’s an individual dog preference) but because I think they have gold quality foods and I can pronounce and trust all the ingredients. I like that nothing is sourced from China.

    yum in da yum

    By on

    My dad bought this for me since I’m a very picky pup! I like freeze dried raw, I’ll eat it easily. If it was kibble I’d smell it and walk away. But when I smell this freeze dried goodie I eat it up. I don’t like it rehydrates. My dad breaks the patties into four pieces and I eat it up, it also makes is easy for my mommy when she has to feed me. She no longer has to add cheese to the food. So this is a bark worthy goodie and I’d suggest that you guys also tell your moms and dads to get it for you. I also like this in the duck and beef.

    Not the best

    By on

    My dogs prefer the beef flavor. These patties are small and easy to break up.

    Another favorite for my dog

    By on

    My pup has been on Vital Essentials for about two months now. She loves it and is thriving. Decided to try a new flavor for more variety and she likes this one just as much. One thing I have noticed is that the texture and consistency of the chicken patties is drier and stiffer compared to the beef. I add water and rehydrate so not an issue for us. But keep in mind if you feed the patties dry.

    Rancid and crushed

    By on

    I ordered the vital essential chicken patties for my dog but when I took it out of the box I saw that the dog food was crushed and when I opened up the bag it was rancid it stunk so so bad that I’m returning it!
