Questions & Answers

About how many patties come in a 1lb bag?
Answer by ChewyJun 13, 2017
There are about 28 patties in each 1 pound bag.

Can you prepare(add water) a day. before if refrigerated?
Answer by ChewyJun 17, 2020
Once the freeze dried food is hydrated, it should be left out for the pet no longer than 1-2 hours. Shorter time if it is warm, muggy or in direct sunlight. The hydrated food can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, so if your pet doesn't eat all of their meal, it can be refrigerated and then used later.

Where do the mixed tocopherols come from? And is the turkey organic free range?
Answer by ChewyFeb 19, 2020
Natural mixed tocopherols are a product of the vegetable oil refining industry. Some mixed tocopherols, such as those derived from palm and cottonseed oils, are rich in α-tocopherol, while others like those derived from soybean, rapeseed (canola), linseed (flax) and corn oils are proportionally rich in γ-tocopherol. The majority of Vital Essentials tocopherols come from soybeans. Vital Essentials turkey protein is sourced from free range farms. Their proteins are not organic.

What is the approximate weight of each patty?
Answer by ChewyAug 19, 2020
Each freeze dried turkey patty weights approximately 0.5 - 0.6 ounces.

Crushed patties

This is the 2nd bag of this product I've purchased and won't order again. Both times the bags were at least 50% broken into small pieces and powdered product instead of whole patties. It's very difficult to measure feeding amounts when they are supposed to be measured by the patty. This company needs to be reformulate so that the patties hold together better. Also, can do without the "God Bless America" on the package.

Half powder

Unfortunately not sure if this batch is because of Fedex or not, half of the patties are broken into powder which will be hard for me to measure it to feed my dog. I used to buy Orijen patties. They may break in half but not in powder. With that said, these patties are great dog food providing best possible protein for my dog.

Dog loves them - read feeding label carefully!

We were looking for an add-in for our pup. The only concern that we have is the bag's label. Working with a vet nutritionist and online calculators, our dog of about 50 pounds (1.5 year old English Springer Spaniel) should receive roughly 1,300 calories a day. This bag states each patty is about 70 calories and a dog his size should only receive 8 patties a day - 560 calories?! He would be starving! Please be careful using the labels on these bags and discuss with a vet. Otherwise, the food is great and the cat even begs for it!

Variety for Long Life

I am blessed to have two small terriers who embrace a wide variety of recall-free brands and flavors, including this one. I serve a different one at each meal as we cycle through 20+ varieties every week. I believe that this helps reduce risk of nutrient deficiency or possible toxic overload from any one source.

Dog Love Them

I am using these with a dog with chewing issues. This is a great protein boost for the food he can eat with grains with a slightly lower protein content than I would like.

Looks great. Dog hates it.

The patties shipped well and looked great upon arrival. My dog loves most of the other protein options from vital essentials (she does also hate the duck but likes duck as the main protein from other brands) that are in her freeze dried raw food rotation. She will not eat these dry or rehydrated with water or goat milk or bone broth. Since they are so expensive the rest will now be going to a family members more normal dog.... we'll go back to her preferred proteins.

Picky Eater

Although my dog loves the VE Rabbit and the Duck she doesn't seem to care for the turkey.

The only Raw that is truly raw.

If you’re looking for an easier way to amp up your dogs diet to raw, this is it! Nothing but turkey-the whole turkey-ground up!

Dog loves it, but the serving size leaves him hungry.

This is exactly what it says - 100% turkey. I would have given this 5 stars, but when I feed for my dog's size (20 lbs), he's still really hungry.

Quality and value

All three of my dogs enjoy this brand. More value for your money. The amount you feed is less than the other freeze dried raw.
