I am a physician with two new dachshund puppies. We received them at 5 weeks due to the mother rejecting them. I was becoming a regular in the emergency vet clinic with Parvo tests and bloody diarrhea. All parvo negative. Needless to say, a day on this food and a miracle occurred. NO MORE DIARRHEA. After a few weeks, they are happy and playful puppies, and they are gaining weight! I cannot thank Primal Foods enough for saving the life of my two darling dogs. I now have my thirteen year old cat on the food and I think I even have a new kitten!!!!!! Liz NC

Hello I'm just writing to say thank you for making the only food my cat with very very chronic IBD/IBS can have and not get diarrhea. He has had very chronic (daily accidents, horrible smell weight loss, etc.) for the past 4 years. After 2 years of going to the vet, and over $1500 later, the vet's only answer was "he is steroid responsive and we can keep giving him steroids each month, but he'll have diabetes in 3 years." A vet from a top school said there was no hope/solution. I tried probably 20 different other types of food/meds and absolutely nothing worked. I have shed countless tears and thousands of dollars over my cat's diarrhea and nothing else worked. I'm still shocked that something so simple as high quality food really did the trick with no additional meds/shots. Just good quality food that his stomach can digest! Since he's been on the diet, he's gained 3lbs back and is now a very happy/healthy 10lb cat. Thank you again for making such a great product. It really is the best! I now give it to both my cats and will for the rest of their lives because it's the best! From the bottom of my heart THANK YOU!!!!!!

Kitty is 18 years old, and a few years ago developed a liver problem that led to numerous issues; missing the box and other accidents, nerve damage to her back legs, lots of meds, and general unhappiness for her and her humans. She's always been on premium brands and I had recently switched her to a frozen raw diet, which she did well on, but it was messy and she was still generally "headed downhill". She couldn't sit properly, her hind legs were always splayed out sideways. She could hardly walk, just dragging her hind end. She'd try to make it to the bathroom, but couldn't go in the same spot anymore so I had the whole bathroom covered with waterproof pads. We even had our two boys (6&4) trained to say "Kitty's on the move!" whenever she got up so one of us could grab her and put her in the bathroom before she could have an accident. We were at the point where she got locked in the bathroom every time we left the house. After a recommendation (from Mud Bay Company), I tried Primal Freeze-Dried Beef and Salmon. She prefers it a bit on the wet side, but LOVES it. But here is the real SUCESS story- after only two bags (chicken and salmon bag #2) she's like a new cat. Now she sits like a real cat again. She walks around using her hindquarters when she can. She uses only one small area in the bathroom consistently and we no longer lock her up anytime we leave. The pads aren't covering the bathroom anymore, and she begs for her food (she's up to 4 nuggets a day - she needs to gain some weight). She greets people when she used to ignore them, it's like Primal foods set her clock back a year or two. Then last week I found a tub of frozen raw that I thought I'd finish off. After only a few days, she had three accidents and her back end is back to its dragging ways. I'm throwing the rest of the tub out. Sure, she is so old that all of this is conincedental, but after 18 years I'm convinced that her new diet of Primal Freeze Dried is the best thing for her and I wish I discovered it long ago. THANK YOU. I feel like the rest of Kitty's life, short that it may be at this point, will be happy for the whole family.

My 6 year old Cocker Spaniel was a vet's dream or worst nightmare! From a puppy she was in & out of doctor's office with allergies, upper respitory infections, ear infections, and luxating patella and digestion problems. I have tried every dry food, made from very expensive to organic materials. She was on allergy medication, and every tonic known to man. One day, I heard about Primal through a friend. She has standard poodles that are thriving on raw. Figgie, my little sweet spaniel, has been on Primal for about 5 months now, and WOW, what a difference! No vet visits in 5 months, allergies almost gone, eyes clear & barely any drainage, energy galore, behavioral problems gone (sweeter and more relaxed), healthy weight, breath clear, and no tummy rumbles! Thank you Primal! Your food has changed our lives for the better!

I used to feed my dogs expensive high quality kibbles. They promised great nutrition and a healthy happy dog... Wrong! I feel bad for not figuring this out earlier, and it wasn't until a few months ago when I finally had enough of the constant struggle with my overweight beagle. He just wouldn't loose weight, and I was not going to cut the kibbles to the point where he was starving. So I did a lot of research and found primal raw dog food in my local pet store, where it was highly recommended. My dogs love love love the food and they already look so much better and healthier. Best of all, my problem beagle with too much weight on his ribs is losing weight, and in a healthy way. This is literally the first time ever that I've seen this happen.

Ever since he was a puppy, my Lab mix Shadow has had problems with itching, excessive shedding, and smelly loose stools. He's now four years old and has always been fed a grain free diet with high quality kibble mixed with additive-free canned dog food (Taste of the Wild, EVO, Evanger's). In June 2013, he began itching so badly that he would rub the area behind his tail on the bottom rail of my pasture fence and cry. He didn't have fleas. He didn't have worms. And he didn't have food allergies. To stop the itching, my vet added enzymes to his diet and some kind of steroid, which didn't do much good. At some point it occurred to me that itching could be caused by intestinal problems, so, when our local feed store began carrying Primal frozen food, I decided to switch Shadow to a raw diet. The change was dramatic: Within a week, the itching stopped and, with brushing and a bath, the excessive shedding ended too. He's itch-free, has firm, odor-free stools, and a glossy coat. He thinks Primal foods, frozen and freeze dried, are the greatest thing since his ball. I've also discovered that my cats, especially my very picky cat Sama, loves Shadow's food. The feed store just got in Primal cat food and I'm going to buy a bag for the kitties.

I just wanted to take a moment to let you know what a difference your raw foods have made in our pets. We have several special needs dogs and foster for a very small local rescue that specializes in special needs animals. Our dogs are all excessively white dogs with 'lethal white' (double merle) tendancies; blind deaf blind and deaf seizure prone allergy prone....etc. They are the most wonderful companions I have ever had (though I'm somewhat biased).

Lilly our blind/deaf/seizure prone/massively allergic to nearly everything is a 3 year old Shar Pei mix. Her vet is thrilled with how stable her weight has been and we all have been over the moon with the imporvment in her skin ears and digestive difficulties. She still gets excited and impatient every day for her meals =) Aspen is a 1 year old blind Catahoula who came to us profoundly under weight to the point of muscle wasting. No amount of dry food seemed to help him regain weight and muscle mass. It wasn't until I began supplementing his food with your freeze dried raw that he began to improve. The difference was nothing short of shocking and needless to say he is now on an exclusively raw diet. He has filled out bulked up and looks nothing short of glorious!

We have also used Primal's freeze dried raw to augment our foster dogs' diets to recondition them with wonderful results. Your foods clearly nourish them without a bunch of garbage and additives for them to react to. I have seen miracles worked with thoughtful feeding of our rescues and fosters who have been ill ailing allergy-affected and in poor shape. I have a ton of pictures of my amazing pups their big smiles and gorgeous coats if you would like to see a few. I love that all of your ingredients are suitable for human consumption and love knowing that I am giving my babies the best! Thank you!

I am a huge fan of Primal Raw Feline Food. My perfect 11 year old cat plays like a kitten thanks to your wonderful product! When I first acquired Artemus in 2002, I fed him Raw Advantage (plus supplements) and then, after only a few years, I had to (due to new living arrangements and finances) start feeding him Wellness and Wysong dry cat food. Sadly, only one year off the raw foods he suffered a urinary track blockage and was rushed to the hospital. I had to give him an IV twice a day for weeks after! Pressured and worried about his kidneys and a relapse, I put him on the Science Diet food recommended by my vet. After becoming frustrated by the lack of nutritional value, and lackluster results, I ended up feeding him the best human grade organic canned cat food I could get my hands on. I then remembered how well he did on raw food, and searched everywhere to find it again. By now Primal was available at Walkers Healthy pet. I was immediately impressed with the nutritional value; all the supplements I used to add to Raw Advantage were already in the food! Best of all, Arti loves it! Overnight he became a brand new cat. His coat turned deep black and shiny, he played and ran around like a kitten, his urine and stools had almost no odor. I currently feed him a rotation of 4 different (flavors) of the raw frozen foods and although I could type for hours about how much I love what this food does for my cat, I think my vet said it best. After recently deciding to take Artemus in for a teeth cleaning (his first), they were shocked at how perfect and white his teeth were. They asked me if there was a typo on his age (11) and if I brushed his teeth regularly. I, of course proudly, stated I feed him only Primal Raw pet food, nothing else.

Nico was rescued at 4 weeks old from Gaston County shelter. He was surrendered without his mom and very sick. The shelter couldn't afford to both bottle feed and medicate the litter, so all of them were going to be euthanized. Luckily, they were all taken into foster care. Needless to say, after being bottle fed and on antibiotics for two weeks, Nico was in poor health when I adopted him. My four dogs are all on Primal raw, and it was my first choice for my new kitten as well. He scarfs down his food as soon as I put it down (he just loves it)! The difference is amazing. His coat is so shiny and soft, his eyes are bright and no longer crusty, and he has so much energy. I wish I could put a before and after picture! He has put on the ideal amount of weight, and the feeding instructions were accurate and helpful. Nico will definitely be eating Primal his whole life!

My little Maltese poodle has had serious dental problems over the years. His upper and lower front teeth have been pulled. It was impossible to clean his teeth. He hated it, and he would bite and squirm whenever I made an attempt. His breath was awful, and the tartar would come back quickly after spending a small fortune to have the vet anesthetize him and clean his teeth several times. After switching to Primal raw foods, his teeth are white and his breath is fine. My dog loves his food!
