I was sent three bags of Vital Essentials Freeze-Dried treats for our dogs to review! Our little tribe of six dogs LOVE their treats, so I was excited for them to try these. We received the Turkey Giblets, Beef Nibs and Rabbit Bites flavors to review.
As you can see, Molly always has a sense of urgency about her, and she just HAD to check them out… immediately. I don’t know if they can smell treats through the packaging, but she was very interested in the Rabbit Bites first, so I opened that one first.
At first, we almost had a stand-off between Cody and Sammy. They were staring at each other while I opened the bag, with little growls at each other. Naughty dogs. They only do that when they are REALLY excited about a food.
They tried them, and loved them! Little Maxi typically has to smell his treats for about 5 minutes before he’ll actually eat it, but these he ate pretty quickly. But he did give it the sniff test first.
Next we tried the Beef Nibs. These were even more popular than the Rabbit Bites. They were all over these! Cody and Max quickly ate this handful up.
Maxi eats a lot slower than the other dogs, so he gets a little one-on-one time without the other dogs interfering. He LOVED these treats.
I should really know better to turn my head for even one second… because Miss Molly had her head in the bag of Beef Nibs.
Lastly, we tried the Turkey Giblets. I gave them a little sniff at first to get them excited. And it worked.
Maxi ate these very quickly! I think these were his favorites.
Haha! I just love his little facial expressions when he eats sometimes. He has a pretty strong underbite, and he chews with big bites, it’s absolutely adorable.
Are these Rabbit treats the equivalent to “catnip” for cats? Maybe “dognip”? Because Molly looks like she’s over the .08 limit. Good thing she’s not driving.
And Noah would not stop eating the Rabbit Bites. They were his favorites. Clearly.
Here’s what I learned about these fantastic treats:
VE™ Vital Treats is Vital Essential’s newest product innovation. They start with fresh, high quality, RAW USDA meats, bones and whole organs. These provide the essential nutrition that dogs instinctively crave as well as being highly palatable to dogs. They never use grains, preservatives, coloring or rendered by-product. Their products are made only from the “right stuff” to support overall health and vitality.
Their exclusive 48-hour “slow” freeze drying process locks in the vital nutrients without cooking the RAW meat. Fresh, life sustaining nutrients are not lost during this process. VE freeze-dried foods need NO refrigeration making them ideal to take anywhere you want to go with your dog.
If that doesn’t make you want to get your dogs some of these treats, I don’t know what will. I LOVE that they have NO by-products. Our dogs are not just pets, they are our furry, shedding, messy, destroying, but loving and adorable little family members that we love dearly. Don’t they deserve the very best?
Wondering where can you buy these products? Check their store locator here for a store near you! I was happy to see there are at least 4 stores near me that carry these products! That’s going to make some VERY happy dogs.
And then there’s this gem:
I don’t know about you, but every time I see this, I get the warm fuzzies. Nothing makes me happier than seeing products made right here in the great USA, and “God Bless America!”. God Bless America, indeed!
