Primal makes their dog food with wholesome ingredients that mimic the diet of animals in the wild. They combined raw, crate free, antibiotic free, rabbit with organic fruits, vegetables, and supplements to create a complete and balanced diet that your dog will be begging for more of. This high protein, grain free diet is freeze-dried to lock in nutrition and flavor. During the freeze-drying process, the water is taken out to maintain shelf life. While it is completely okay to feed this diet as is, we recommend re-hydrating it with water to get it closer to its natural state.
