    Ferret Fave

    By on

    I am so happy I bought this! I make a main diet pate for my ferret and I blend 1/2 a puck of the rabbit mini and a 1/4c each of Wysong digestive and Wysong Epigen 90. My ferret was experiencing bad gas and stain/loose stools; after only one week of eating this new food in his blend, he has a spring in his step and his poops are top notch. Furthermore the addition of this product has stopped the farts! his tummy was also constantly bloated and! now no more bloating! oh man I'm so happy! he's so happy! I did try the Wysong freeze dried rabbit and quail formulas but my ferret wasn't fond of it and because there are so many ingredients it didn't help with his gas problem. Btw: I vitamix all the I am so happy I bought this! I make a main diet pate for my ferret and I blend 1/2 a puck of the rabbit mini and a 1/4c each of Wysong digestive and Wysong Epigen 90.

I plan on transitioning this food to the main/base and only supplementing with the blended Wysong at: 75-80% Vital Essential and 25-20% Wysong. Hope this helps! … more

    Not impressed and neither were our babies

    By on

    For the price I thought this food would overall be worth it but it is no Stella and Chewy. There are only 10 patties in the $25 bag which is ridiculous! I was so shocked to see the small amount of patties. My cats need two patties a day so as you can see this bag will last 5 days! Not worth it. I will stick to Stella and Chewy where you get what you pay for.

    So far, so good

    By on

    My cat loves the Vital Essentials rabbit bits with his kibble and wet food. Buying multiple bags isn't cost effective so I decided to try the patties. I mixed a half of a patty with his wet food and he ate heartily (he always leaves a teaspoon of food--who knows with cats?). I'm hoping he'll continue eat the melange for his health and for my budget. For storage, I'm placing the sealed bag in the refrigerator crisper, perhaps it will stay fresh longer.

    Kitties love the patties

    By on

    My cats absolutely love their patties (especially the rabbit)! I just pour a little (very) hot water over them, wait until soft, chop and serve! It’s their favorite meal of the day!

    Cat Crack That’s Healthy

    By on

    My cats are picky, and they have allergies. One cat ran right over and started snacking away on this. I love the ingredients and am very happy at the money we’ll spent since I waste money on trying different foods for them.

    Yummy Yummy

    By on

    I love this product and so do my babies. Such a difference in their health. Lost hair growing back in, no more vomiting, ear issues clearing up. My cats love the patties the best but will eat the nibs as well. They have been on a raw food freeze-dried for 5 weeks. It is so expensive and I am struggling to find a way to fine a compromise between the this product and a high grade of grain free kibble. So much contradicting research out there makes it hard to decide what is the best path.

    They Become Little Lions When They Eat VitalCat Rabbit Entree Patties

    By on

    Two of my kitties love VitalCat Rabbit patties. I have to put their plates very far apart when I serve this food because they start growling like little lions protecting their kill. I serve it dry (that is the way they like it). The only issue is one of the cats eats it too fast and sometimes throws some of it up.

    Rabbit is his favorite!

    Recently I've been unable to find fresh rabbit for my furbaby, so this is the next best thing! He loves it.

    Product was stale

    By on

    I buy a lot of Vital Essential products from Chewy but this package of Rabbit Entrée Patties was stale. It smelled like cardboard and my cat wouldn't eat it. I ended up throwing the entire package away. I just ordered a new box, hopefully this one will be better. My cat typically loves any Vital Essential nib, entrée or treat.
