What Are Primalvore Broths?
Primalvore Bone Broths are pure hydration with great benefits made for all stages of a dog’s life. There are so many uses such as a warm or cold drink to quench thirst, to keep sick dogs hydrated, to rehydrate freeze dried foods or dehydrated foods, or as an extra boost of nutrition when poured over dry kibble. I make my own bone broth and chicken stock which I use as a base for almost all of our homemade meals and as a liquid replacement in many of our dog treats.
Who Is Primalvore?
Primalvore's mission is to promote healthy eating for our canine companions. The approach is simple: create delicious and functional supplements, meals and treats made with thoughtfully sourced ingredients that are always wholesome, sustainable and human grade.
As of right now Primalvore offer four flavors: beef, chicken, duck, and turkey. The bones used are certified organic and natural which means there are no antibiotics or hormones used in the range free, grass fed animals.
The broths are gently heated with a combination of time, temperature and pressure to create a shelf stable bone broth that has an 18 month shelf life without the use of additives or artificial ingredients.
All of the broths contain only four human grade ingredients and are processed in a USDA/FDA approved facility.
What Are The Ingredients?
Beef Bone Broth: water, organic beef bones, collagen peptides, organic turmeric.
Chicken Bone Broth: water, organic chicken bones, collagen peptides, organic turmeric.
Duck Bone Broth: water, organic duck bones, collagen peptides, organic ginger.
Turkey Bone Broth: water, organic turkey bones, collagen peptides, organic turmeric.
What Are The Health Benefits?
These broths are rich in amino acids such as arginine, glycine, glutamine and proline. Collagen peptides are known to boost protein, glucosamine, chondroitin and other nutrients that support good joint health, shiny coats and strong nails. The process of breaking collagen into small chains increases the bio-availability of the key nutrients in collagen.
Turmeric contains Curcumin which is a potent anti-inflammatory and antibacterial agent that shows promise in the prevention and treatment of cancer among other conditions. It is generally found to be safe for dogs and cats with veterinarians frequently recommending the addition of turmeric (up to a quarter of a teaspoon per day for every 10 pounds of weight) to a dog or cat's diet if they have been diagnosed with cancer. If you follow Doug English, Holistic Veterinarian in Australia, then you know he recommends Golden Paste with literally thousands of pet parents claiming amazing results both as maintenance against cancer and treatment for cancer. He has proven it works to reduce arthritis inflammation and pain in pets.
Ginger is an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory used to treat digestive upset, nausea, gas, motion sickness, heart problems, joint inflammation due to arthritic conditions, to reduce fever, and is also effective as an anti-infective, especially against viruses. It can decrease blood sugar levels, and increase absorption of all oral medications.

What Does Kirby & Kenzie Think?
I haven’t cooked with it, although I can, but they have enjoyed cups of the broth licking up the very last drop. A great test of how tasty it is was when we recently cooked them their own steak on the grill. I cut up the meat into bite size pieces and poured the broth over. Honestly I expected them to pick out the meat first and then slurp up the broth. Surprisingly they both slurped up the broth first and then ate the meat.
Primalvore has created a shelf stable broth without the use of additives or artificial ingredients. The packaging is made without BPA's and is easy to open and reseal. I especially appreciate how easy these pouches are for travel.
I highly recommend making your own broths and stocks to keep a steady supply so these products are the next best thing. The simple list of ingredients makes me quite happy! Bone broth and collagen peptides not only help the joints but they also heal the gut and boost the immune system. Kenzie has a luxtating patella so I’ve been adding collagen peptides to her meals since we brought her home. Both dogs get their golden paste daily which contains turmeric and ginger.
Kirby and Kenzie love the taste, I love the healthy ingredients. It's a win-win! I know I will be stocking up on the duck broth since duck is quite expensive.
