Primal Pet Foods was founded because of the love a pet owner had for his dog.
In early 2000, our founder Matt Koss discovered that his dog, Luna, was displaying early signs of renal failure. After exhausting all other methods, Matt took the advice of a holistic veterinarian who recommended switching Luna to a diet based on bones and raw food (also known as BARF or Biologically Appropriate Raw Food), which mimics how an animal would consume food in the wild.
With a renewed sense of hope, Matt created his own species appropriate pet food for Luna. After a short time on the new raw diet, not only did her appetite drastically improve, but she also showed an increase in energy and overall happiness.
The benefits Luna reaped from a biologically appropriate diet are not limited to superior kidney health — raw diets can help other vital organs of the body just as well. The liver, an organ that helps to detoxify the body, benefits greatly from a diet of raw foods.
“In general, raw foods support the liver and help it cleanse,” says Julia Henriques, Managing Editor of Dogs Naturally Magazine. “Feeding your dog a fresh, raw diet is always the best diet to give him a solid foundation for his overall wellbeing.”
Here are a few ingredients found in Primal Pet Foods that help support liver health:
- Organic Alfalfa Leaf Powder
- Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
- Organic Kale
- Organic Collard Greens
- Organic Celery
- Organic Broccoli
- Beef Liver
- Chicken Liver
With loads of added benefits beyond liver support, feeding your dog a complete, balanced raw diet will help keep all of their organs in tip-top shape.
