Fresh Pet Food: How to Feed On A Budget


In our fast-paced, ever-changing world, it can be hard to keep up with our daily expenses. From household bills to groceries and extracurricular activities, everything has a price. Many households function on a budget to ensure all family members get what they need—and want!

Like most other parts of your budget, using fresh pet food does not need to be an “all-or-nothing” choice. There are many options that fit into any lifestyle. Let us help you make it easy to incorporate fresh, moisture-rich, human-grade foods into your pet’s diet, whether that’s a lot or a little. After all, some fresh or raw food is better than none. Each month, purchasing just one extra item to add to your pet’s meals can make a difference in their health without breaking your budget.

Choose Your Fresh Food

Consider which fresh food item you would like to incorporate into your pet’s diet. You can choose as many as you would like and rotate as you please. Every time you rotate food items for your pet, you’re providing them with a variety of nutritional benefits! In this post, we are featuring fresh food from Primal Pet Foods. Based in California, their product offering is extensive with options for any budget without ever compromising on quality.

Plan Ahead

Each fresh pet food item may last longer than you think! Primal Goat Milk, Bone Broth, and Edible Elixirs can be defrosted and refrozen as ice cubes. This gives you more control over portion sizes, which makes each item last longer. As an added bonus, these products are good for up to a year when kept frozen.

Keep Primal Raw Frozen Nuggets and Raw Pronto in the freezer until ready to serve. A small portion of defrosted Nuggets can be kept in the refrigerator for 3-5 days. Meanwhile, Pronto is designed to defrost in minutes through an easy scoop-and-serve format. Primal Freeze-Dried Nuggets are shelf-stable and can be kept in the pantry. Because of the importance of moisture in your pet’s diet, don’t forget to re-hydrate your Freeze-Dried Nuggets with water, goat milk, or bone broth!
