About Vital Essentials Dog Treats
Limited Ingredient, Raw and Made in the USA
Vital Essentials raw dog treats are minimally processed, crafted from limited ingredients, and made and packaged in the USA. They contain no fillers, grain or artificial ingredients, just a wholesome meat-based recipe that’s nutritious and meets a dog’s instinctive cravings.
These are the perfect size and texture for my 10 pound mostly toothless pooch. They are the actual minnows and a cute treat which my pup finds very tasty. For the most part the minnows stay whole. I use the fish dust to mix in my pups food so it's not wasted. She is a rescue and had 22 teeth pulled before we got her. She can't eat any hard treats and these are soft and easy to chew. She is on a restricted diet for medical reasons and these are one of the few treats she can eat.
Our three dogs are in love with these. Two of them scarf them down right away and my other likes to savor them. I was a little worried that they would be stinky but they don’t have much of a smell which is super nice!
I know these are for dogs, but my cats LOVE these as a special treat. I've tried other brands, but Vital Essentials is consistent. The minnows are well preserved, no crumbs or small pieces. Truly excellent!!
At first, I didn't think he liked them because he would put it in his mouth, then spit it out. However, he decided to roll and rub himself all over these as if he couldn't believe his luck! I use these as a special treat on top of his PB lick pad and he sure does love it. It's the first to go down! I have a picky eater, border collie almost 2 years old.
My four torties LOVE these. I used them as an occasional special treat/topping on their dinner. It is so cute to hear them crunch on these. They go nuts when they hear me open the bag. :)
My 1 year old Bernese Mountain thinks these are the greatest things in the world. They're a really good high value treat, even for such a big dog! I'll definitely be getting tons more of these.
My cats' favorite treat and hearing the crunch while they're devouring them is so satisfying. I love that they're getting the entire minnow.
I got these for my pets and my dog has no interest in them , my black cat only ate half of one, my tuxedo wanted nothing to do with them . But my orange cat goes feral for them so it’s a win I suppose
I made the mistake of setting this box down in the hallway while I went out to the mailbox to get the rest of the mail. I rest my case.
I needed treats that are dog and cat safe, since they all coming running at the sound of a bag opening. These are, by far, their favorite. My cat was taught to sit and shake paws with these because he's desperate for them. I'm a big Vital essentials fan myself (no preservatives, essential organs) because I trust that they won't harm my pets and will benefit their health. I also appreciate the different bag sizes they offer, as while I get a big bag, I often get smaller bags for my family members as gifts for their pets.
