Transition Instructions

Switch to a purely raw diet slowly. Some pets may take to raw immediately, while others may take longer because they are hooked on the added flavorings in traditional pet food. 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.

    Smelt and looked different

    By queenie on Nov 30, 2021

    My puppy who is not picky and is a foody normally loves this dog food but for some reason this package she didn’t eat it and just stared at me. It smelt weird and looked lighter color. I threw it away. Luckily I also had the s&c rabbit one too which ate right up.

    My cats love these, even though they're for dogs.

    By CAMF on Aug 30, 2021

    I've tried both the cat version and the dog version, and my cats love both. They like them as-is, just broken up, not rehydrated, but it's like kitty crack to them that way LOL The patties are easy to break up, too, although a bit messy, which is to be expected. As others have noted, it can cause constipation. My older cats did start getting constipated from this when I tried to add it as part of their food, so now they only get a small amount as a treat to avoid the constipation. I have a younger cat who has allergies who loves this, though, so he gets it in his food which helps with his allergies, and his system is able to deal with the change without constipation.

    Great food Lacking, but lacking fiber. Made my dog constipated

    By Jackie1101 on Aug 2, 2021

    This food is great if you're doing an elimination diet to see what your dog may be allergic to, but from experience I don't think it would be healthy to feed for a long period. My senior dog has been eating this for awhile due to allergies and she's been doing great as far as itching and scratching but because this has nothing other than meat, no veggies or fruits, and no fiber she is very constipated. She has a very very hard time pooping.. Gonna try to find something else that will work. If not, maybe I'll just add my own veggies and fruits.

    The only food our cats eat

    By Anna on Jan 21, 2021

    This is the only food our 12-lbs Ragdoll and 8-lbs British Shorthair cats will eat. They have been raw fed since 10 weeks old but in the beginning they only ate pre-made raw food from a high quality raw pet food brand (Raw Paws - great company) and would only eat goat meat for two years. Then they woke up one day and decided they did not like goat anymore. We ordered pre-made raw chicken, lamb, beef, pork, alpaca, mutton, mouse, guinea pig, and rabbit from another raw food company. But nope, these brats turned their nose up. We turned to Chewy and tried Ziwi, Tiki cat, etc but they didn’t like any of them either. All the while, we have been giving VE as treats but never as an actual meal. Eventually This is the only food our 12-lbs Ragdoll and 8-lbs British Shorthair cats will eat.

All the while, we have been giving VE as treats but never as an actual meal. Eventually, we gave all VE freeze-dried entrees (beef, chicken, duck, turkey) a try and this is the only one they’ve been eating consistently. We buy VE dog food instead of cat food because of the quantity. Sure, it costs us $300 a month to feed two cats but no more thawing raw meat in the fridge and all together much easier to feed and a great balance diet. Their stool does not smell on this diet either while other food caused their stool to smell horrendous. At this price point, no, it’s not going to be for everyone but if you want convenient and high quality raw diet for your pets, this is it. … more

    Perfect for seniors

    By PreciousMom on Feb 13, 2021

    I've been feeding my senior chihuahua TruDog for a few years and will continue to feed it along with Vital Essentials Rabbit Patties. The mini rabbit patties are perfect for Precious’s teeth. I soak the broken pieces in a bit of water and they are nice and soft. She LOVES it!! Highly recommended!

    Excellent Food

    By YorkieMom on Jan 17, 2021

    I have finicky Eaters. They all love Vital Essentials. I rotate all the proteins, Rabbit seems to be their favorite. Love that it comes in patties now. Easy to break and re-hydrate.

    My senior loves food again!

    By Emma on Oct 21, 2020

    My senior pup has always been a picky eater, but has not shown any joy in her food for a while. I’ve tried different dry, wet and dehydrated products. She LOVES this! This is her breakfast each morning and she runs to her dish. It flipped a switch because she seems to enjoy her dinner as well now, which is not this, but something she was eating before. Now she gulps it down. Her zest is back!
