I always fed raw to my irish Wolfhounds... A month ago, my old girl (8 years) stopped eating, and I had to really make the food more delicious with all kind of tricks. I went to the pet store and bought some Primal raw patties, and she loved them. She also has more energy now, and her coat is getting shinier. I love that everything in the patties is food (except for the meat) that I would eat, too. Well done. Do not change and get greedy or take shortcuts to lower the quality of the food and increase your profit. I love the food, and will buy it now instead of other raw foods. I said what I said before because it happened with my previous raw food.

I have a search recovery dog. I started feeding him the nuggets with his regular food, and now he has a better coat and more energy. I also started feeding it to my older lab, who is 13, and she's like a new dog. Love it!

My 3 1/2 month old German Shepherd puppy goes absolutely nuts when he sniffs the Primal raw coming his way. He wolfs it down as fast as he can swallow and then picks up the bowl and brings it to me for a refill.

10 years ago, I found a one year old cat who clearly had intestinal problems. She had constant yellowish diarrhea. My son, Matt, had just started his raw food business, Primal Pet Foods. Within a month or so after feeding her Primal Venison her stools normalized, and she has not had gastrointestinal problems since. Venison is the least fatty of the proteins, and I highly recommend Primal Venison for any cat or dog suffering from any kind of intestinal problems. All of my eleven felines enjoy two meals a day of Primal raw foods. One large male gobbles down 3 ounces in the morning and 3 oz in the evening. The smaller cats eat 2 oz twice a day...and sometimes I spoil them with a snack between or after meals in the evening. They have shiney coats and are healthy, happy kitties. Thanks Matt for your devotion and commitment to improving the health of our beloved pets. -Your mom

I just started my 6 month old doberman, Max, on the Primal Lamb & Primal Beef a week and a half ago. Since we have had him, his feces has been very soft. I wanted to put him on Primal, like my other dog J. J. and my cat Rosie are. They are doing great on it. The vets, three in all, said no raw food till he is a year old. When Max was 4 months old, he started to get bumps all over the under side of his back legs, and he also started to chew his legs. We went back to the vet and they gave him antibiotics for ten days. Well, that didn't work. Poor Max was getting worse! Since Max joined our family in April 2013, he's been on a very good grain-free lg breed puppy kibble that was deboned turkey, duck & salmon. I think that he has an allergy to poultry, so I have not given him any more. So far, Max is doing great on the raw frozen patties. Also, for the first time in 4 months, his feces is much smaller and firm! All three of my fur kids love Primal and dance around when it is feeding time. Max has not been chewing himself, and I'm sure he will keep getting better.

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.
