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.

    It's a Hit

    By POmMOm on Apr 27, 2021

    My one and a half year old pom loves this, its the first and only food that she will eat without me handfeeding her. She is ridicouslessy picky, but from day one she ate the whole daily allowance without hand feeding or coaxing, she has always been on a raw diet and has had no adverse effects and seems quite sarisfied.

    Same as the old recipe Vital Essentials Rabbit Bites Raw Dog Treats

    By TerrierMom on Mar 8, 2021

    I was notified by Vital Essential customer service that the mini nibs are what used to be in the VE Rabbit Bites Dog Treats. I can confirm that this is the case. So if your pet loved the old grayish colored treats and not the new red hard & crunchy formula that replaced it, order these mini nibs. My terrier was so happy, she gobbled down a handful like the good old days.

    Yorkie approved

    By Addy on Jan 24, 2021

    My little Yorkie has allergies and Vital Essentials has been a life saver for her, literally! She loves the rabbit nibs and patties but I do soak them in water to rehydrate. This is a great product, 1 ingredient, fully balanced meal for her. Very greatful for Chewy and Vital Essentials

    Tasty for dog

    By CiCi on Jan 12, 2021

    CiCi loves this but although it is said to be larger pack of freeze-dried rabbit, it is very pale in color and does not look as rich dark color sold in the small treat size bags.

    Thumbs up, poodle likes it.

    By Bstof7 on Aug 3, 2020

    I wanted this to add A little crunch to my dogs freeze dried raw diet that she’s already on. Unfortunately I think she swallows it whole, so the crunching action to help keep her teeth clean isn’t really happening. I was able to easily integrate this with her Stella & Chewy’s freeze dried meals without stomach upset. It has a weird smell, but nothing that offends my dogs sniffer. It’s working out for my 8lb toy poodle.

    Great treats for diabetic dog!

    By Cazz on Mar 23, 2020

    I recently ordered these as a treat to give my dog for after she takes her insulin shot. It does the trick. It is a good incentive for her to behave while I give her shots twice a day. We were giving her a little peice of mozzarella cheese, however after getting an allergy test found out she was sensitive or allergic to almost EVERYTHING!! I recommend this 100%. I even bought a bag to go in our emergency bag for on the go food since she cant have kibble. She is happy and so am I. 4 stars because it is pricey.
