Transition Instructions

Switch to a purely RAW diet slowly. Some pets may take to RAW immediately, while others may take longer. 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.

  • Step 1: Choose a protein (stick with the same protein for the first 2 weeks)
  • Step 2 (Day 1 - 3): Serve 25% RAW mixed with 75% current food
  • Step 3 (Day 4 - 6): Serve 50% RAW mixed with 50% current food
  • Step 4 (Day 7 - 9): Serve 75% RAW mixed with 25% current food
  • Step 5 (Day 10 and after): Serve 100% RAW

Always provide access to clean, fresh water.

  • My dog wouldn’t eat it at all

    By on

    I’ve tried several dehydrated or freeze dried raw foods over the years. We had the most success with another brand, but there were additional ingredients in those foods we are now avoiding. It takes forever to rehydrate this brand, and then when it does somewhat rehydrate it becomes a spongy and strangely textured food. After multiple attempts to feed it to my dog and him not even wanting to taste it, I had to call Chewy and let them know it didn’t work out. If your dog is not the kind of dog who will eat anything and everything I would avoid this food.

  • LOVE these!

    By on

    Use them for training and as a food mix in. Dogs love them and they're the perfect size for training, plus I can give 1c as training rewards and not worry about dogs getting sick.

  • My Picky dog Loves this

    By on

    I have two 8-10lb girls. A chihuahua, toy fox terrier mix and a lhasa, toy poodle mix. My lhasapoo, Princess Peach, is Very picky and has a sensitive stomach but my little terrier, Tiki, is allergic to chicken. This was a perfect alternative to the chewys meal mixers bc they were seemingly too big for Peach but she liked the turkey Flavor. Typically I'd have to mix the food with wet or with water, for the chewys brand, to get Peach to eat, but this one she Crunches down on, dry. The size of it is perfect! Mixed with her Nutro small breed dry lamb kibbles n she's yet to grow tired of it. I love that!!

  • BEST EVER!!!!

    By on

    Our Havanese has been on Vital Essentials Turkey freeze dried for the last few months. He hasn't missed a meal yet. I cut the pieces into two, add a very tiny amount of water & warm. He loves it. I fact in a few days he stopped licking & biting his paws. He never had allergies in the past. Goes to show how important food is. We thank Vital Essentials & Chewy.com

  • My dogs love this food.

    By on

    I was looking for a no carb food for my yeasty dog and finally found it. She loves this crunchy food and so does her sister. It can increase their LDL level due to being all protein so keep a check on it especially for older dogs. That’s why I gave it a 9.

  • Great Treats

    By on

    We feed raw so these treats were recommended to us and our dogs love them. We get several varieties of the niblets so they work great for training treats. My only wish is that the salmon variety came in larger sizes.

  • Turkey pieces can be large

    By on

    My chihuahua loves these for a snack but she is 3.5 pounds and sometimes the chunks of food can be too large for her to eat. I have to crush them for her. Other than that I would recommend this product.

  • Trooper's favorite

    By on

    We use for treats for our Scottie, Trooper. We keep a few in our office to keep him quiet while we are working. Whenever we go in that room he leeps off the couch to run to the office. It's like he's on a rubber band.

  • Good cat treats

    By on

    These are the perfect size for cat treats and my cat likes it. This formula (turkey) has a very good protein-to-fat ratio, I noticed some of the other flavors are higher in fat.
