Product Features and Benefits
FEED RAW - FEED RIGHT! The more your pet consumes processed food, the more likely issues are to develop. Sound familiar - ear and eye infections, skin problems, gut challenges and so much more. Our raw dog food is grain free and gluten free, which reduces the risk of issues developing. If your pet is showing signs of issues, Vital Essentials products made with 100% USA ingredients may be the solution you've been looking for.
IS YOUR DOG FOOD MAKING FIDO A LITTLE PUDGY? Commercial dog food (kibble) contains sugar and carbohydrates, which can prompt overeating in your pet. Vital Essentials dog food is all natural, raw, USDA sourced proteins, just the good stuff. As nature intended; meat + organs + bones, what your pet knows and loves.
DOES YOUR PUP NEED A LITTLE PEP IN THEIR STEP? You know the old saying humans have said for years about their nutrition "garbage in, garbage out". It is the same for our pets. Feeding raw dog food is so powerful many owners (nearly instantly) see an energy jump after making the switch to raw nutrition. Pets live at an ideal weight, g strong bones, have firm muscle tone and just enjoy life more.
HOW MUCH DOG FOOD ENDS UP IN YOUR BACKYARD? A Vital Essentials raw diet is easy for your dog to digest, which means your fur baby retains the nutrients from the dog food, creating less waste. First, fewer eliminations overall (less cleanup time for you). Second, stools are firmer and near odorless. Lastly, the stools of a healthy, raw fed pet are smaller in size. Win, Win, Win !
GOOD TASTING DOG FOOD! In addition to balanced nutrition and healthy digestion, your dog will like eating raw food. Why? - the texture, the taste, the satisfaction, all very primal to your pet. And your pet will expend energy while they enjoy their dog food, allowing them to relax afterwards. That means more cuddle time for you!
HOW TO TRANSITION TO VITAL ESSENTIALS DOG FOOD: 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.
