At Primal, we believe that pet health starts with wholesome, biologically-appropriate nutrition. One of the most popular questions we get asked is how to select a diet to help support pets who have sensitive stomachs or digestive concerns.

Building a Better Bowl for Digestive Health

To Build a Better Bowl® for pets in need of digestive support, start with our Awesome Squash Fresh Topper which can help settle stomachs and promote a healthy GI tract. Next, Primal’s Pumpkin Spice Goat Milk+ offers additional hydration during mealtime, as well organic ginger and pumpkin which are natural digestive aids. These Toppers & Hydrators can be added to any meal, whether it’s kibble, canned, raw, or a mix of all!

If your pet primarily eats kibble or canned food, adding a species-appropriate raw frozen or freeze-dried Balanced Base, such as our Freeze-Dried Nuggets, also adds value. Any amount of raw that you add to your pet’s bowl will be beneficial for their digestion and overall health.


  • Awesome Squash Fresh Topper: A mixture full of prebiotic fiber including organic vegetables, cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, and apple cider vinegar. Organic apple cider vinegar provides enzymes. 


  • Pumpkin Spice Goat Milk+: Contains beneficial probiotics, living enzymes, and healthy digestible fats. Good bacteria in your pet’s gut helps them to digest their food and absorb their nutrients. 

Balanced Bases

Balanced Bases include high-quality animal protein and fresh, organic whole foods, carefully considered for flavor and nutrient profile. Raw foods are rich in nutrients and have high moisture content, which makes them easier for pets to digest.

Make Diet Changes Slowly

Make sure you transition slowly if you’re switching over to new foods or adding anything else to your pet’s diet. Start slowly, so your pet’s digestive system has time to adjust in order to avoid any potential GI upset.
