They are good, conscientious companies.
All of the S&C products are HPP (High Pressure Pasteurization)
Primal's poultry products are HPP
OC Raw & K9 Kravings are not
Most raw feeder's do not agree with HPP as they believe
process destroys not only harmful
bacteria but the beneficial bacteria and dentures the product. The debate goes on!
So, it would be up to you. But 2 things to be careful of when purchasing raw food for a puppy:
1. The foods need to be formulated and tested to meet or exceed AAFCO canine nutritional profiles for all life stages.
I would email or call the company you are interested in TO MAKE SURE that they have implemented those requirements.
2. Check the Calcium/Phosphorus rates of each variety you choose.
Some companies will add vitamins and minerals, and some feel that the quality of ingredients they use are enough to make it a "complete diet."
Another thing to be careful of is to keep your new pup on whatever food the breeder sends home with you for a couple of weeks. This will give the pup time to acclimate to all the changes he/she is going thru and it's new life with you. Pups are notorious for getting diarrhea when going to a new home.
Good luck with your new puppy!
