Advocates of The ALPHA Prey-Model Diet
Dogs and cats are natural carnivores, the essential nutrients they thrive on come from other animals. They are not designed to handle carbohydrates like corn, rice, and potatoes. A RAW meat diet is exactly what nature designed dogs and cats to thrive on. Vital Essentials® uses only fresh, whole, single-sourced USDA animal proteins. Vital Essentials NEVER uses grains, fillers, artificial preservatives or rendered by-products in any of our products.
About VE™ Freeze-Dried RAW Food
Vital Essentials® exclusive VE Freeze-Drying process retains all the active nutritional elements and allows the food to be safely and conveniently stored without refrigeration. We start with fresh, high-quality RAW USDA meats, bones, and whole organs. Our 48 hour “slow” VE Freeze-Drying process locks
in vital nutrients without cooking the RAW meat. The fresh, life sustaining nutrients are NEVER lost during the VE Freeze-Drying process.
Complete & Balanced Diet Standards Vital Essentials® Complete and Balanced Diets are formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog and Cat Food Nutrient Profiles for all life stages.
We are a USDA certified and inspected pet food facility with a comprehensive HACCP Food Safety Program developed in collaboration with Kansas State University. Our employees are HACCP and OSHA trained and certified employees receiving a “Superior Rating” from biannual FDA audits.
