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
Our little pup is a mut mix of Shih Tzu and a Bichon Frise. She has an underbite which is normal for this mix and breed. The Mini NIbs are the right size, but way to hard for our pup to bite down on. Our pup loves the smell and taste. In order for her to be able to eat them, I place a few handfuls in a zip lock type bag, and smack them with a meat tenderizer hammer. Once crushed, I add them to her kibble dry food as a topper. So far so sgood, but because of Nib hardness, I must give a 4 star rating. I give my meat tenderizer hammer a 5 star rating and the zip lock bag a 3 star rating as it gets holes in it, after a goo pouning.

Ultra limited and quality ingredients

My dog is very sensitive to switching animal proteins, and often times even raw/freeze dried products have added proteins of a more accessible source. VE is a safe product for us in that regard and I feel great adding it to my dogs diet for him to access top quality nutrition.
Nibs are hard.....
on May 16, 2020
Hey I was hoping these could be softened easy with water. they do soften with very hot water but it takes a lot to soften. Not like the toppers if that's what your used too. Were used the the Stella and Chewy toppers which are soft dried liver treats. If hats what your looking for stick with that. I can't say any of my furry friends liked these they were just too hard. WE did find a way to use them by adding very hot water and allowing them to sit over night in fridge and then reheating them and adding it over kibble or just feeding them. I won't be ordering these again. Please make note these are really hard and most of my dogs spit them out.
quality dog food

My dog does very well on this dog food. Other dog food with vegetables and other additives does not do her digestive system well at all. The food is on the pricey side, but the vet says she is very healthy. We tried other dog foods and they didn't do well.
The best food for your dog

If you have not heard of Vital Essentials dog food, hear about it now. Whether you get the freeze dried or the frozen patties or the treats, you are purchasing one of the healthiest, most nutritious, healing food available. The freeze dried Mini Niblets & small patties are great for trips as well as every day use. The best part is that your dog will love this food as mine do. I have three very picky Vizslas who turn down food that most dogs would jump at, but they never turn down Vital Essentials. And all Vital Essentials is raw. Without the hassle of frozen food, freeze-dried provides the benefits of raw without the hassle.
Go Bag Food For Diabetic Dog
on Mar 23, 2020
I wrote a similar review for the rabbit entree, that I use as treats after my diabetic dog gets her insulin shots. She is now on a strict raw diet so that means her food is difficult to travel with. This is a straightforward recipe without starches or any of the many things she is allergic to. And since this is a protien closely related to what I feed her at home, I use this as food for on the go, and in our emergency bags. I have a 15lb dog so this works out nicely. I recommend this 100%. 4 stars since it is pricey.
