Real Pet Stories

i've got piece of mind, and they have an appropriate diet they enjoy... -Mary

We love bringing pets and their parents closer together!

If dogs and cats could talk … well, our homes would be completely different. Imagine what they’d say about your outfit yesterday. Of course, they would rave about Vital Essentials®. It’s amazing what a balanced, raw food diet does for your cat, or how healthy, high-protein, grain free food changes your dog’s well-being.

We’re truly humbled by the praise. After all, Vital Essentials is simply sharing the best parts of what nature created. We’re just thrilled that so many pet families appreciate our efforts. When pet parents experience the benefits of Vital Essentials, they naturally want to talk about it. And, we invite you to share your story, too!
