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.

    Food allergies

    By on

    My Chihuahua mix is allergic to EVERYTHING... and with years of trial and error, we finally found this and concluded he definitely is allergic to everything Except Duck. This is so expensive...but its worth it. No more licking and biting, no rashes or yeast, no vet trips for allergy shots that didn't work, nothing bad but all good. Now he is a happy (and expensive) little dog. *sigh* The things we do for our fur-babies. lol

    works for a picky eater!

    By on

    Our dog is very picky, we decided to try this food, bought the different types of meat the have and we are very pleased. The only negative is the price, so we try to give her cooked food and top it with a healthy cup of this food.

    Dog loves it, wallet not so much

    By on

    My little rescue is super allergic to everything, so for now he can only have single source protein and sweet potatoes. He loves this food but even though he only eats 1/2 cup a day total, it's super expensive for me.

    Great training treats

    Great training treats! My 72 lb dog still goes crazy for these and we started using them when he was a little pup. Definitely recommend getting the larger size bag

    Great for training treats

    By on

    I love these for training treats. The size is perfect for my 50lb dog, they are hard enough not to crumble and my dogs love the taste. I like knowing I have such a healthy treat to give when training. And the niblets are much more affordable than the Vital Essentials treats.

    Duck Is Their Favorite

    By on

    My 3 dogs love the duck mini nibs! They also like the chicken and turkey but won't touch the beef. Dogs are like people and just don't like some flavors so I don't believe there is anything wrong with the beef. I have two shih tzu and a havanese and the small size of the mini nibs is perfect! Just a bit pricey but I understand why. I wish it came in bigger bags.
