    I thought we would try this product when my one cat was diagnosed with stomatitis. We are trying to eliminate all chicken and seafood from her diet to see if it helps with the flare ups. We tried a couple of other things but this was the biggest hit. They all cannot get enough of this food. The patties are convenient and easy to portion out. They rehydrate very well using water from out electric tea kettle then letting it cool a little before serving. Also, it works very well for mixing in my kitties supplements for her stomatitis. I cannot recommend this and the other flavors enough (but my cats love this flavor the most).

    My cat is not crazy about most wet cans so I bought this for her to try. She loves it and this works great as a topper for wet food. Preparation is needed but pretty easy and fast

    Good for my cat with allergies

    By on

    I have my cat on a limited ingredient diet focused on rabbit protein. This is one of the products he gets. I serve it it wet, warmed with hot water. He loves the smell and the "gravy" it makes. I only make enough for a meal or two so I don't waste food. My other cat enjoys this once in awhile, and sneaks it from his dish if he didn't eat it fast enough.

    Great cat food

    By on

    I've used this brand on and off for few years. The patties was the only thing my dry kibble addict would eat and finally gave up the dry food altogether which is healthier for her. I have a diabetic (2nd one) and dry food is forbidden. You can make the patties any texture to suit the cat. My cats are still not sure on the rabbit flavor, but love the other 3 flavors. It does seem this food will now become their primary food as the canned they were getting has changed yet again and my 17 yr old seems to now have an allergy to it. Waiting on allergy test results.

    Love at first bite

    By on

    My cat loves this food so much she purrs the loudest she has ever purred the whole time she eats these. The are so healthy and make her so happy. She loves all food but this is by far her favorite. She has always been healthy but seems to be even better and more playful than ever. I think she just feels really good. This is her supper each day and she eats her other foods for breakfast. If I could I would feed her only Vital Cat for all her meals.

    My cat won't even touch it

    By on

    On a human level, it looks like great food and nutrition... but it certainly won't help anyone if the cat won't even eat it!

    Good nutrition and Easy to use

    By on

    I bought the Vital Essentials Rabbit Mini Patties for my 2 cats. They really like it. I take 1/2 patty and mix it with about 4 ounces of wet food, mix it very well together, and they LOVE it. I also like how these patties are so easy to handle. I have fed raw food to my cats before, and preparation has been very messy. With these patties, prep is clean and easy. I feel pretty safe (i am something of a germaphobe) since wet raw meat is not all over the place. I clean up their bowl immediately after they eat - and they eat the WHOLE thing, they leave no crumbs!

    Overpriced

    By on

    Overpriced but a necessary evil as I have an older dog allergic to many proteins except rabbit. Soooooooo gotta do what ya gotta do. It works for my allergic girl.

    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
