How to ‘Build a Better Bowl’ with Pathogen-Free Fresh Food Products with Emma Kumbier, Veterinary Outreach, Primal Pet Foods

Emma is in charge of Primal’s veterinary communication, education, and outreach. Her time at Primal is spent attending veterinary conferences educating on the industry/brand, leading Lunch & Learn sessions for clinics and universities, as well as facilitating our outreach opportunities. She began her career with Primal in 2018 after obtaining her BS in Zoology and fulfilling the pre-veterinary requirements. In college she worked in practice as a veterinary assistant for 5 years in addition to her part time role at the independent pet shop down the road from the clinic. It was a mix of the two simultaneous jobs that sparked her interest in feeding dogs & cats real, whole foods and what it may do for their overall health.

As interest in adding fresh food to their pet’s bowl continues to rise, learn Primal’s role in leading the fresh food category. Uncover the vast array of products under Primal’s umbrella – complete frozen & freeze dried diets, fresh food & meat based toppers, bone broth, goat’s milk, and *new* gently cooked options. Discover supportive research while learning about Primal’s approach to balanced diets and commitment to food safety.
