My Buddy will be 3 in January, I adopted him when he was 9 1/2 weeks old. I am a bit obsessed with pet nutrition and keep learning more all the time. He has always been fed grain free healthy food, but is picky, sometimes not eating much for a day.

I recently tried a bag of the freeze dried raw duck, and wow, he went wild for it! I store the bag in the fridge and he knows it, watching for anyone going in there, then begging. When I get the bag out and rehydrate the food, he sits and begs, not taking his eyes off the bowl! I feed him the recommended amount and he cleans the bowel out in record time, and wants more. I have never seen him so enthusastic about dog food!

He had two seizures over summer with no cause found. So far, after being on this food, he has not had one. Fingers crossed it stays that way! I have tell my friends who have dogs that Buddy highly recommends this food!

Ollie is now a two year old Portuguese Podengo Pequeño. He is a show dog. But more than that, he is my best friend. From the time I purchased him until a friend recommended Primal, Ollie picked at his food. My old Golden would hover over him waiting for a chance at any morsel - he even ate sometimes just so she wouldn't. He constantly battled intestinal problems. He was not healthy.

We spent tons of money on vets. Money and more money was spent trying to figure out why he wouldn't eat. We wasted bag after bag, can after can of food...

For a year and a half I begged and pleaded with him to eat and be well!

No more begging. He is a happy, healthy, gorgeous dog. I feed him the frozen Venison. He adores it! I just wish you would make a Freeze-Dried Venison as well because it would sure make traveling easier!

I wish I had a "before" photo because even I can't believe the difference. My Maltese puppy, a 4.5 month old female, had fairly bad tearing and staining. I tried several things to help her - I've had Maltese before - and then talked to my dog trainers. The suggestion was to switch her to Primal raw food, as it will help "everything." Frankly, I was doubtful but willing - these guys have never steered me wrong. They gave me the Starter Pak - thank you, Primal, you are very wise to make that available!

First thing: Nica loves it. Not that she was a picky puppy about food, but she LOVES Primal.

Second thing: the evening of the first day I swear her eyes were dryer. The next morning I had the same impression, so I sent a text to my trainer - he said, "as soon as the allergens disappear, we see dogs improving." I trimmed (did not "shave") her stained facial hairs and washed her face to see if the staining would reappear.

Third thing: This is day 4. Nica's face is virtually free from tear stains, and the tearing itself is greatly reduced because her muzzle (where the wetness stands and staining occurs) is almost completely dry. Only the very corners are at all damp.

4 days!

The season hasn't changed, her environment is the same, and anyone who knows Maltese knows their hair grows very quickly - there's plenty enough there to collect moisture. She's a very happy little dog, anyway, but now - with part of her daily allotment of Primal used as training treats - she's more excited than ever about learning new things.

I'm impressed! I'm staying with Primal!

When we first adopted Link from a cat rescue group at 6 months old, he was on a steady diet of name brand dry food. He was also throwing up several times a week and having irregular, smelly bowel movements. After several doses of antibiotics, it became clear that the problem was something other than internal parasites. The vet suggested a diet change to rule out food allergies.

I did some research, and was horrified to discover how unhealthy the food I'd been feeding him was! No wonder he was sick all the time! What he'd been eating was far from being species appropriate! I decided then and there to switch him to a healthier food. I tried several brands of high-end limited ingredient wet food, but he turned his nose up at all of them. I tried several brands of raw food with the same result. He sat there next to his bowl full of raw bits, refusing to touch a bite as he cried for his unhealthy kibble. He was a dry food addict.

I thought I'd have to go back to feeding him dry just so he wouldn't starve, but then I received a free sample of Primal freeze dried beef and salmon. I cut it up and re-hydrated it, then doubtfully set down the bowl. He scarfed it down immediately and meowed for a second helping.

The vomiting and diarrhea cleared up immediately, and I would have been thrilled with just that, but it got even better: Link used to routinely get eye infections, but since starting Primal, he hasn't gotten a single one! His stools don't smell at all now, and there are a lot less of them, and he doesn't have awful kitty breath like he used to. He also used to shed like crazy! I'd only have to hold him for a few seconds to get covered in a layer of hair. But since starting Primal, he hardly sheds at all, and his fur is shiny and silky-soft to the touch. He feels like a baby bunny. Thank you for making my fur son so much healthier!

I help a relative take care of her aging Boxer, Bubba. While he's not a picky eater, his stomach is somewhat sensitive and some foods cause problems, save for anything made with chicken. We are wary of chicken based products, however, as there are quite a few of them which are manufactured in China, and we're not comfortable giving him anything that was made there.

Bubba has not had an interest in raw foods before (he doesn't like Nature's Variety raw or others) and we weren't too sure about this one, but we figured it wouldn't hurt to try it. We took one out of the bag, re-hydrated the cube, and put into his bowl with some kibble. He scarfed it down! More importantly, he had no problems after eating it and his stools were better!

We have now made Primal a part of his diet. He loves the taste and the flavor variety, and we love that it's wholesome and made in the USA - no food safety concerns! It's a fantastic product and we recommend it to everyone.

I have two very very picky kittens! They like canned and dry foods, and it's hard to figure out the best food without constantly throwing it out; not to mention, costly as well. I received a sample of the Primal Beef/Salmon nuggets freeze dried and decided what the heck try it out. Omg! They went crazy for it!! They don't care for the water added, just broken up bricks. It's kitty crack! I'm going to try another flavor next.

Thank you!!

My dog was discharging way too much poop for a one year old 14 pound Coton, even with a 5-star expensive kibble formula. The Primal Turkey and Sardine formula reduced that problem by 90%. But the best part, my dog eats it like a kid with candy - loves it!

My 2-year-old Ryder is a rescue who came into my home in mid-March (about 3 months ago). When I got him, he was heartworm positive, and in mid-April we began the adulticide treatment to kill the heartworms. Around the same time, he also began blowing his coat. Ryder's a Siberian Husky, and blowing the undercoat is normal at this time of the year, but I had NEVER seen this degree of shedding in any of the other 7 Siberian Huskies my family has had through the decades. He wasn't just losing his undercoat; he was shedding massive amounts of guard-hairs. Very unusual for this breed. In addition to the hair-fall, he was experiencing rapid fill-up of his anal glands, likely due (at least in some small part) to the fact that his poops were frequently soft. I had him on a high-quality kibble, but I noticed that Ryder inhaled his food, rarely spending the time to chew. After speaking with my vet and the proprietor at the local pet-supplies store I frequent, I gave Primal freeze-dried raw a chance, supplementing with extra salmon oil.

Over the course of the last month, his shedding has GREATLY diminished. He still sheds, but it's not excessive, and the shedding is mostly his undercoat and no longer his guard hairs. His poops have also firmed up (and decreased in size), and he hasn't been paying much attention to his rear, which makes me think the anal gland issue is resolved (or resolving) as well. He LOVES his Primal raw, to which I randomly add raw fruits and veg as the spirit moves me. Thanks for such a quality product!

When my mini pincher was 8, he began to show signs of illness. He was walking slower and began to fall frequently. The vet put him on prednisone. This went on for a bit over a year with no improvement.

In April, my dog was barely able to walk, and I was within days of putting him down. A friend suggested a raw diet. I had fed him Merrick since he was a puppy. Within days of feeding him Primal I noticed an improvement in his mobility, and now he is practically running around like a puppy again. He no longer takes medication. I am very thankful.

My cat of ten years broke a fang and I had to get a blood panel done before they could do surgery. The vet called me immediately after the results and said my cat might have cancer or some other kind of liver problem. ALL of her levels were high and the one that concerned her the most was her ALT, which is supposed to be 158 or lower, and my cats was at 4,800! The highest she had ever seen. My cat did not act sick, but we believed we were going to lose her. My sister told me to get her on raw, because it is very good for the liver.

Although the vet said food had nothing to do with it, I decided to go raw with Primal. Her second blood work was better, but still 8 times too high. The vet was surprised to see it go down in only a week. She wanted to check it again in 2 weeks. Not only did ALL of the levels go to normal, but her ALT went down to 54. Thanks for offering a solution to fatty liver disease. Your raw Formula saved my cat Cloud!
