We do not recommend cooking, microwaving or heating our foods. Primal Pet Foods makes raw pet foods that are intended to be consumed by dogs and cats in its original raw state. Heating foods in any way depletes heat-sensitive and/or water-soluble nutrients, and thereby makes that food less nutritious for a carnivore.


Our foods have been analyzed and are guaranteed complete and balanced only when served raw. We do recommend that you use one of our suggested feeding methods for preparation which do not include direct heat application that are featured on the short 2-minute video about thawing and serving the Raw Frozen Formulas on the Feeding Instructions page of our website.
