At Primal Pet Foods, we believe that wholesome pet food starts with fresh, high-quality ingredients. We use antibiotic- and steroid-free meats and poultry for high-quality protein, certified organic fruits and vegetables, and unrefined, food-based nutrients to support immune, circulatory, and digestive health. But there’s one ingredient that cuts to the heart of the matter—heart meat.

The addition of heart meat into a raw food diet is a way for your dog or cat to get high-quality nutrients from fresh pet food. We’ve incorporated heart meat from Lamb, Pork, Beef, Venison, and Rabbit into our products to give your pets the most nutrition possible from our proteins.

The Nutrients

Heart meat contains an incredible amount of vitamins and minerals including:

  • Vitamin A
  • B Vitamins
  • Iron
  • Zinc
  • Selenium
  • Phosphorus
  • Amino Acids
  • Fatty Acids
  • Collagen
  • Elastin
  • Co-Q 10

The Benefits

Heart meat has been known to improve heart health, as well as support basic cell functions—but that’s not all! This super ingredient can help boost stamina and endurance, build muscle, and help store energy in your pet’s body. In addition, the presence of collagen and elastin can help your pet maintain healthy joints!

Sustainable Ingredients

Working with the Pet Sustainability Coalition (PSC), we use ingredients that come from animals that have been humanely raised. Under the PSC’s guidelines, we use proteins from vendors who practice promoting overall health, comfort, and natural behavior of animal protein sources. Our goal is to ensure your pet is getting the maximum benefit from animal protein while also eliminating as much waste from those sources as possible. The addition of heart meat into raw food products assures we stick to both standards. 

Heart Meat in Your Pet’s Meal
