Bacon and ham have always been big hits at the dinner table, and it’s no surprise that our furry companions love it as well! High quality, humanely-sourced and ethically-raised Primal pork is a great, nutritious addition to any diet. Read on to learn about how Primal’s line of pork products can help you Build a Better Bowl™ for your pet.

Pork is high in protein and low in saturated fats

A common misconception about pork muscle meat is that it is extraordinarily high in fat. In reality, quality pork that includes the entirety of the animal, such as the lean muscle, the organs, and the bone, can provide a very large amount of protein while sustaining low levels of sodium and saturated fats. Primal quality pork is a great natural source of bioavailable calcium, glucosamine, and chondroitin—all of which help support strong bones & joints.

Pork is great for rotational feeding & pets with sensitivities

If your pet regularly eats standard proteins, try adding Pork to the rotation for added variety & more exciting mealtimes. You can learn more about rotational feeding and how it can benefit your pet here. Pork is also a great option for pets with sensitivities to more common protein sources, like Beef or Chicken.

Primal pork is rich in selenium, iron, and vitamins B3 & B6!

Quality pork meat contains large amounts of selenium, which is an antioxidant that supports the immune system and can reduce inflammation. Pork is also rich in iron, which is essential for producing hemoglobin and transporting oxygen throughout the body, as well as vitamins B3 and B6, which help lower cholesterol and boost brain function.

Primal pork is crate-free and humanely raised!





In contrast to much of the industry, Primal chooses to source its pork from an established family farm that has been in the business of humanely raising hogs since 1916. All Primal pork is raised responsibly and never given any added hormones, steroids, or antibiotics. Our pigs are vegetarian-fed, crate-free, and treated with dignity.

No Steroids

No Antibiotics

No Added Hormones
