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.

    Mo loves his Vital Essentials!

    By Michelle on Feb 23, 2021

    My former wild boy Mo loves the freeze dried nibs and these are his daily treat! Mo loves the freeze dried turkey patties too. So grateful to be able to feed him food that is as natural as possible. Being educated on cat nutrition is so important!! I recommend Vital Essentials to anyone who is looking for a better approach to feeding a healthy diet. A vet once told can pay now, or you will pay later. So very true!!

    Great brand but my cat won’t eat the turkey one

    By Carrisa on Nov 22, 2020

    I guess it just depends on the cat’s preference. He loves the chicken one, but this turkey choice didn’t work well for him. He’s not gonna eat it unless there’s nothing else to eat. I’ll probably never buy this one, but instead trying other flavors. Heard the rabbit one’s good too. But thank you chewy for having such a variety of food choice:)

    All three like these...

    By ToniM on Sep 19, 2020

    I like to feed products that all three of my cats like - saves me a hassle. I use these as munchy-crunchy treats. They are more cost-effective than the VitalCat treats, especially because I have three cats. I don't feed kibble to my cats as a meal and these do not hydrate well at all - so I don't use them as intended. For meals I feed VitalCat frozen raw or freeze-dried patties, (which hydrate really well.)

    Our gentle giant ragamuffin sniffed, but would not try it.

    By Ragamuffin on Oct 30, 2020

    Our gentle giant ragamuffin male cat sniffed, but would not try it. He purrfurs, a moist pate' texture and cleans his teeth with some dry kibble.

    My cats love all vital essentials I have offered them so far

    By CatMom on May 15, 2020

    I have been trying different brands of freeze dried raw, and so far, every single Vital essentials has been a hit with my cats. Turkey patties, they love them, I rehydrate with luke warm water. Turikey nibs... I give them as treats, the cats go nuts for them, like cat candy. The chicken hearts, also, each cat goes nuts for it, and so healthy, just a bit expensive of a treat.... I am also giving the rabbit and duck nib treats. The turkey flavor seems a bit more popular than the rabbit and duck. But I am very impressed with the quality of ingredients.

    My cats LOVE this food!

    By JBarbara on May 9, 2020

    My Vet recommended Vital Essentials Turkey freeze dried food because of dietary issues my cats had. I wasn’t sure about it and gave it a try. At first I was nervous that it would be too hard but I was wrong. They absolutely love it and come running when the hear the bag. No more issues with diet and their coats are beautiful! Give it a try if you’re on the fence.

    My cats like them

    By Kittykare on Jun 12, 2020

    As with anything new, It took awhile to introduce these to my cats. But now they like them and give me “the look” if there aren’t at least a few mini nibs as a topper.

    Vital Essentials

    By Flemingtoncustomer on Feb 8, 2020

    My cat loved a sample pack of the turkey mini nibs, but didn't really care for them when I bought a full bag. My dog loves them and we use them as treats for her.
