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.

    Another Vital Essentials Feline Favorite

    By on

    I like that the topper has some moisture and not completely dry. All 3 felines raise their paws of approval!

    A pretty popular topper for canned food in my feline household.

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    I bought VE turkey topper to use to gradually transition one of my senior kibble addicts to canned food. Cheddar will eat the dry topper sprinkled over kibbles, or will eat the topper off a plate of canned food, leaving much of the the wet food behind. He will also eat dry VE topper alone, off of a saucer. I haven't given up on him by any means. I think that eventually he will be willing to eat meals of canned food without topper, or rehydrated VE alone. Other cats in the household love this product. VE chicken topper is even more popular than the turkey flavor. I will definitely purchase this product again in the future.

    A hit with all four cats

    I got this to help my diabetic cat gain weight. She really suffers from food boredom. She ate more than I expected. Very pleased.

    No Go for my Picky Eater

    Dogs love it!

    By on

    I got this to help in courage my little dog to eat, she’s picky and will go a few days without eating if she feels like it. Sprinkled a bit of this in with her food and she eats it all immediately. I took off a star because there was no scooper/measuring cup in the bag.

    Beef over turkey

    By on

    My cat definitely seems to prefer the beef flavored over turkey. He didn't like either dry but prefers the beef when it's rehydrated.
