Feeding Recommendations

As a result of the increased digestibility of a raw food diet, you are able to feed your pet less food daily. Primal's suggestion is to feed your pet based upon the 2-3% Rule. Feed your pet 2-3% of their body weight daily. Primal recommends feeding your pet twice daily, so you should divide the total daily feeding weight in half and feed once in the morning and once in the evening.

Factors such as level of activity, age, health, metabolism, and breed play a part in the necessary feeding quantities of all animals. Please be sure to monitor your pet’s dietary needs and adjust the feeding quantities accordingly. Use the table below to determine the appropriate feeding percentage based on your dog's dietary needs.

Feeding Percentages
2.0 % Weight loss or non-active dogs
2.5 % Maintain Weight
3.0 % Slight Weight Gain
3.5 % Significant Weight Gain
4.0 % Puppies (8 wks - 1 yr)
4.5 - 8.0 % Puppies (4 wks - 8 wks) *
Calculation Tips
Weigh your pet on a regular basis so you know that you are feeding the correct amount of food.

*Puppies: Primal recommends starting your puppy’s feeding percentage at 6% and adjusting up or down as necessary.

Transitioning Your Dog to Primal Raw

Transition is the most essential element of a healthy and safe change from dry kibble or canned wet food to a raw diet. Primal recommends making this transition slowly. Allow 1-4 weeks for your pet's digestive system to properly adjust from a highly processed diet to their new diet of human grade raw foods.

Begin by mixing the Canine Formula into your dog’s previous food at a ratio that your dog will tolerate (you can start with as little as 1/4 Canine Formula to 3/4 of your pet’s former food). Your dog may show some adversity to the temperature of the raw food when served directly from the refrigerator. To warm Primal Pet Foods formulas, place the feeding portion into a zipper-seal, water-tight bag and heat in a bowl of warm water. Do not use water that is too hot, as this will potentially cook the food and reduce the enzymatic properties, as well as deplete the nutrient values of the raw foods.

Gradually increase the amount of Canine Formula until your dog accepts the raw diet without the addition of any kibble or canned food.

Primal recommends the addition of digestive enzymes for the first two to four weeks of the transition period to better enable your dog to assimilate the proteins, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals contained in our formulas.

To determine how your dog’s system is accepting the new diet, monitor their stool. As you change over to a raw diet, your dog’s stool size will be greatly reduced. Stools will become small, firm and void of any offensive odor. If your dog’s stool is soft or loose as a result of the transition, introduce the raw food more slowly.

There is $14.95 shipping surcharge on all frozen raw orders. Please read the following carefully:

  • Shipping Fees  - Frozen raw orders do not qualify for Free & Flat Rate Shipping. We currently ship all frozen raw via FedEx Ground or FedEx 2 Day Air based on estimated time to your your shipping address. To avoid spoilage, shipments that would take more than 3 days to arrive by ground must be upgraded to FedEx 2 Day Air.

  • Tuesday Shipping - All frozen raw orders ship on Tuesdays. Due to stocking requirements, orders placed by midnight Sunday will ship that Tuesday. Orders placed on Monday or later will ship the following Tuesday.

  • Special Packaging - All raw food and bones are shipped frozen in special styrofoam-lined boxes with dry ice. The frozen raw surcharge is to cover the cost of the dry ice and special packaging.

  • Delivery Time – Time frames vary by state but in most cases your delivery will be on Thursday or Friday. If you will not be available to receive your order and place it in the freezer within 24 hours of delivery, consider placing your order another time.  

  • Holiday Shipping Restraints - Due to the FedEx holiday schedule we are unable to ship frozen raw on the holiday weeks of July 4th, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's.

  • Delivery Instructions - Please ship to an address where someone will be available to accept the order. If this is not possible, please leave a note for the delivery person on the scheduled day of delivery with instructions on where to leave it (that is not in the hot sun). We cannot offer refunds or reships on thawed food that is not signed for by a person at the time of delivery.

  • Returns - Because of the unique shipping and handling needs of frozen raw products, we are unable to accept returns on these products. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our Customer Care Team at service@onlynaturalpet.com or 888-937-6677.

  • SEPARATE RAW FOOD ORDERS - If you are ordering both frozen raw food or bones and other, non-frozen items, you will need to place two separate orders, one with your frozen raw items and one with your non-frozen items.

    We have been through several different top foods to feed our golden. Orijen being the latest. Since we've started primal he eats ALL of his food and looks at me for more. We do feed raw so we mix this with canned pumpkin, rice, chicken, and veges. He loves it.

          My Border Collie is 10 months old and the pickiest eater I've ever had. I tried 11 (eleven!!) highly-recommended brands of treats and training treats and she disdainfully spits every single one out. I have not seen any excited reaction to:
          Wellness
          Taste of the Wild
          Blue Buffalo
          Acana
          Canidae
          Fromm
          Sojos freeze dried
          Earthborn Holistic

          While she used to love the old beef recipe of Natural Balance Dog Food Rolls, since they've tweaked it she won't respond.

          Enter Primal Raw.

          For the first time in her life, she eagerly ate the whole bowl and licked it clean. She's at a healthy weight but appears to others to be too skinny. Primal has given me the peace of mind not to worry if she misses a meal or two any more (and she doesn't). I am far more stringent about what she eats than my own rather neglected diet so of course I did the research before offering one nugget; I hope Primal keeps doing exactly what they do.

          I feed three nuggets mashed into a cup of high quality dry food in the morning, and two nuggets at night. At first I purchased the freeze-dried but quickly switched to the frozen; she likes them better and they're a bit cheaper and less-messy to prepare.

          Since changing our dog's diet to a raw diet, her intestinal issues disappeared.

              This is a great food! I feed my dog the chicken version. However, just be aware that the ingredient list and nutritional info for the chicken formula have changed slightly from what is posted here. When the packaging and product size changed, so did the product. For example, the crude fat is now 11%, not 7%. Also, the omega-3 source is salmon oil, not organic flaxseed oil as it says here (not sure where that came from, since flaxseed oil wasn't an ingredient even before the change). I have no criticism of the food or the change, just want to get the most accurate info out there.

              After years and years of researching food brands and different types, I finally decided to try Primal! It's sold at a nearby holistic pet store and it's stored in a freezer. I tried the Chicken Formula in nugget form, and my dog absolutely loves it! She is a 3 year old terrier mix, VERY picky about kibbles and canned food. I tried feeding normal raw chicken and she wasn't too crazy about that either. The minute I offered her Primal Chicken formula, she gobbled it up in under 2 minutes, literally! I couldn't believe it. Eva has a history of urinary tract infections and crystals, and I was worried the food could trigger stones to form. She's been eating Primal for the past month now. So far, she hasn't had any more infections. She also used to have rough fur, and within days her fur was shiny and soft! Overall, she seems a lot happier and healthier and I couldn't recommend this food with more enthusiasm! Give it a try if you have been having problems with your dog's current food, it might save a lot of future frustration!

              Comments about Primal Pet Foods Raw Dog Food:

              I have a male Shih-tzu, Weston, who just turned 1 year in Feb '12 and he is not the 'typical' fru-fru personality type that one usually associates with this breed. He tends to prefer more game-y foods, tends to walk away from the pet store bagged dry and moist foods---even during our training sessions, he is not motivated with 'treats', just praise and verbal encouragement. He might eat something for 2 or 3 meals and not go for it again and not eat for 3 or 4 days (vet says nothing physically wrong with him---but something that is breed specific to the tzu). I believe that he thinks he really is ALL Wolf-Dog. When we go out on our long, nature, woodsy exploration walks...I get the feeling watching him foreage and track that if he could find his own raw food, he would. I don't let him catch them, but chasing rabbits and birds in the woods and trails, off the beaten path is one of his favorite activities. I had been reading on the ingredients for the raw diets and so finding the PRIMAL raw food line with the various choices (RABBIT being one, venison, pheasant---not traditional fare you'd find at commercial pet stores)---was a real gold strike!!! I put the nugget bars on his food mat and he ate with passion and gusto. So far, he goes to his food mat patiently awaiting me to put the rabbit (his favorite so far) down for his meal time. Thanks to PRIMAL!!! And hopefully this won't be one of those great products that becomes unavailable in the future. Only con is the price, but the convenience and meat selection with all the necessary ingredients makes it worth it if you can afford the choice of a raw diet.

              My dog has no teeth , so she just loves the soft food. But one thing I did notice , is she is missing something in her diet , as she's forever trying to eat grass.
