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 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.

  • Elderly Dog with Inflammatory Bowel Disease

    By on

    My 14-year-old Boston Terrier has been refusing to eat and vomiting. She was just diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease. She is doing better with eating Vital Essentials (put her on it before she started medication for IBS). I've tried many, many foods.

  • Dogs love it...

    My dogs go crazy for these duck mini nibs. I have three Border Collies so I'm not using this as their regular food, way to expensive, but I use them for healthy training treats instead.

  • Picky Yorkie

    By on

    Yorkie wouldn’t eat any type of dog food. Lost weight and I ended up feeding him eggs most of the time. Started Vital Essentials and had to get a Gobble Stopper bc he was eating so fast he would get sick! Yorkie happy = me happy.

  • Vital Essentials - My boys love this!

    By on

    I purchased the Vital Essentials duck mini nibs & also the beef. My two dogs love both of them. I mix the mini nibs with their dry food to add extra nutrition. It is nice to be able to offer them raw nutritious food without all of the prep.

  • My picky dog LOVES this food

    By on

    I can load up her food puzzles for brain stimulation/meals and it stays nice until eaten due to freeze dried process. also nice little bits that fit in the puzzles- there are a few bigger pieces that I just break in half. And my little 12 pound poodle mix absolutely loves this stuff! Finally a good raw food solution. And her poops are small, firm and formed- easy to pick up ( no more runny or smooshy poo)

    Both pups love this food. That’s high praise since they can both be picky at times. It’s also high quality food and I’m happy about that.
