Description

Treat your “good boy” to a complete and balanced meal that’s full of the nutrition he needs and the flavor he loves. Vital Essentials Salmon Entrée Mini Patties Grain-Free Freeze-Dried Dog Food is made in the USA with limited ingredients including whole wild-caught salmon, organs and bones and never any added fillers, artificial preservatives, flavorings or colors. Salmon is chock full of omega-3 fatty acids which can help promote healthy skin and a glossy coat and help reduce joint inflammation and allergies. These grain-free and gluten-free patties are freeze-dried to lock in the flavor and nutrients of the raw ingredients, and they are paw-fectly suitable for all breeds! Feeding your pup a raw diet can help support digestive health, oral health and overall health.

Key Benefits
  • Crafted in the USA with real, wild-caught salmon which is naturally packed with omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium, potassium, zinc and vitamins A, B-complex and D to support healthy immunity, skin and a shiny coat.
  • Salmon is the only source of animal protein, which makes it paw-fect for pups who require unique proteins in their diet.
  • Salmon is a great alternative for dogs who are experiencing allergy related symptoms from other proteins—some of these common symptoms are excessive or non-season itching, a dull coat or excessive gassiness.
  • Grain-free and gluten-free freeze-dried meal made without added fillers, artificial flavorings, colors or preservatives.
  • Offers paw-tners from all life stages a complete and balanced meal—simply crumble into your sidekick’s bowl, add water or a liquid of choice and serve.
Precautions

Wash hands, utensils, counters, food dishes and related areas thoroughly with hot, soapy water after each feeding.

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.

    These patties are excellent quality and ingredients! I love that they are just clean, good, and biologically appropriate ingredients without added junk.

    Great product

    By on

    I use these salmon patties as a topper for my dog. A couple of the patties come broken, but it honestly doesn't bother me. I love how these patties are single sourced, include vital organs/bones, and have no additional fillers! I have noticed though, if you plan on breaking these patties apart be cautious. Because bones are included I've almost accidentally poked my fingers with parts of a fin on a few separate occasions.

    omg! this is the only thing that works!!

    By on

    Ok so, my 13-year old little guy is very choosy. He also has to take Sam-e and milk thistle for his liver - it’s so bitter and he hates it. This is the only food that disguises that flavor for him. It’s a miracle , he actually goes for it!! He also can’t have organ meat, and this was the only formula without that stuff. VE, if you’re reading this, PLEASE come out with some more formulas without organ meat. I’d purchase them so quick!! This is a miracle product for us, and it really quells my dog’s anxiety about taking his medication.

    The patties are pretty much broken up. Not a problem since the pup likes it.

    Great food

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    Great ingredients and nutritious food that my dogs love. One star removed for price as it would cost $800/ month to feed this exclusively for 3 dogs over 50 lbs each! Wish the raw companies would at least offer larger quantities or a discount for say 10 bags

    (Headline had to be 10 characters long). My dog had flaky/dry skin.Since she does not like any oil put on her food, I thought I'd give the freeze dried salmon a try. She LOVES these and her flaky/dry skin is a thing of the past! I will order more for my next shipment.

    Highly recommend

    By on

    I only feed my dog Buddy Vital Essential foods (and he loves them all!) so I was happy to see the salmon and rabbit entrees available on Chewy. I'm pretty sure the salmon is now his favorite because he licks the plate for 5 minutes after he's finished eating! One note: I did contact VE about salmon poisoning disease which can occur from dogs eating wild caught, raw salmon. They assured me that their food safety process controls this, though they did not say how. Overall Buddy highly recommends this food!

    MOST DELICIOUS!!! A GREAT PRODUCT

    By on

    My Westie and my Cairn LOVE this salmon patty. I cut it up, soften it with warm water and they think it's divine. And...it is! All salmon including micro pieces of bone. They go nuts just putting their noses in the bag. All Vital Essential nuggets rank #1 on their best breakfast menu.

    Dogs and cats loved these!

    By on

    My Great Pyrenees and Collie shepherd mix loved these on their food. My 3 cats tried to take them from the dogs, so I gave them some in a bowl with warm water and they ate it all.

    Not a fan favorite

    By on

    My dogs didn’t like the salmon patties. I was surprised, because they love sharing my (human) salmon. The smell is fishy/Strong.
