Questions & Answers

4 Customer Questions

What is the phosphorus content?
Answer by ChewyNov 06, 2018
The chicken giblet treat should be relatively low phosphorus as there is no bone in this treat. There are only two ingredients in this product and that's chicken heart and liver. Due to it only being a treat, the manufacturer doesn't have a full nutritional breakdown.

Do these treats get refrigerated?
Answer by ChewyDec 06, 2017
These treats do not require refrigeration.

What is the ACCURATE CARBOHYDRATE PERCENTAGE per MANUFACTURER on an AS FED BASIS and AS DRY BASIS? My cat is diabetic so its crucial to be accurate on the carbs count. Thank you!”
Answer by ChewyNov 21, 2021
Vital Essentials does not test for the carbohydrate content for these treats as they are not a complete and balanced meal. Due to your pet's diagnosed condition, we recommend consulting your veterinarian to ensure this is a suitable option for your pet.

Can I feed this to kittens?
Answer by ChewyJun 23, 2021
These treats are suitable for all life stages.

Bloody stool

We’ve been feeding our two cats these treats for a while and they seemed to love it. With this latest batch, the older one wouldn’t even touch it but the younger one ate it up like usual. Within a day we started noticing her stool going softer and softer until she was having diarrhea and then eventually noticed blood in her stool. We tried to determine if there was a change in her diet that caused this and when I dug through the reviews and found someone else whose cat experienced the same issue, we figured we’d stop the snacks and see what happens. Within 2 days her stool is back to normal. This is the last time we’ll be buying these snacks and I urge whoever is considering to choose something different.

I don’t know how these are considered edible??

I bought these, along with a lot of other things, to try out to use to enrich my kitties’ meals a bit! I quite literally cannot describe accurately how disgusting these things are. First of all, they are hard as rocks and my babies physically could not chew them up… so I soaked them in chicken broth to try and soften them up a bit and they didn’t get any softer. Secondly, they we covered in a disgusting thick grease! I don’t know how it’s even possible for them to be rock solid and greasy at the same time??? Third of all, they smell absolutely FOUL!! My kitties wouldn’t eat but a nibble or two of them, and I cannot blame my babies! Instead of this, I highly recommend Instinct’s freeze dried raw meal topper!!! Its more affordable, has good ingredients, smells great, and my cats love it!!

Fantastic Treat!

All of my cats are very fond of this treat. This is on the expensive side, but healthier than standard fatty treats.

may take awhile

My kittens go nuts over VE FD treats. My senior PREFERS the store bought usual but I stopped buying them so now she likes them. I feel better giving her a treat that is good for her. Just took a bit for her to get used to them. She loves the chicken hearts too not the minnows so much but she will eventually eat them

My boys love them

These are a favorite in my cat's cupboard. Regular buyer of these from now on. Please don't put the price up though. Already slightly high for us.

Tasty for Kitten

my Siberian kitten loved this one of her favorite treats! I used this to slowly train and it's perfect, it has smaller pieces. Definitely will buy again after we finish the bag.

Delicious (to my cat)

These arrived intact (not completely broken up into bits) unlike a lot of freeze-dried treats, and they smell gross to me, which obviously means my cat loves them. He has a sensitive stomach but these work well for him. I use these as a high-value reward. I'll buy again, even though they're expensive.

My cats LOVE this!

I have switched my cats to freeze dried and one of their favorite treats is Vital Cat (Vital Essentials) Chicken Giblets. Although I've tried other brands, my cats seem to prefer Vital Essentials, especially their cat treats.

OBSESSED with these treats!!

My three boys love the heck out of these treats!! I always have to stop them from stealing each others treats if one finishes earlier then the other! I was worried cause out of the three one is decently picky and the other one is so-so. That being said, these are a win!10/10 for us!
