Feed up to double the amount for puppies and pregnant or nursing dogs.
Wash hands, utensils, counters, food dishes and related areas thoroughly with hot, soapy water after each feeding. Store freeze - dried products in a cool dark place. Best if fed within 30 days after opening.
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
This is cheaper than the cat version of basically the same thing, so I put 8-10 on top of their nighttime kibbles and they both love it. This + dried raw chicken breast. I like giving them raw treats and a quality kibble because all the wet canned food does it give them stinky, wet stools all the time. They drink plenty of water from a fountain, so don't think they will get dehydrated.
Perfect Training Treats

Although this is a small bite freeze dried food for dogs I use it for tasty and healthy training treats for my Agility Dogs. All 5 of them give all flavors of Vital Essentials a 5 paws up. And so do I for the quality ingredients.
Picky girls like it!

I have tried three types of freeze dried food and this is the one my picky girls have chosen. My old girl is acting like she feels better and her coat is pretty and shiny again.

I use these little bites as treats while training my dog. They are mess free and small enough so that I am not adding tons of calories to her diet.
My dog wouldn’t eat it at all
on Apr 3, 2018
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.
Great Food - Great Price

Now that we know one of our Morkies is a 'Cool' Dog, Turkey is one protein he can eat. We only feed freeze-dried, and I like that this is nothing but Turkey and has a crunch they really like. These make great treats also.

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.

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.

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.
Great treat or topper for 70 lb doodle

I use these for training treats, they don’t turn to dust like other dehydrated turkey treats. Great for extra protein topper on his dehydrated food too.
