    The reviews say “Primal Raw Frozen Grind is a supplement. And because they probably lack some essential nutrients, supplements must not be fed continuously as the sole item in a dog’s diet.”

    What are the essential nutrients that are missing?

    Good question to ask on their f/b page. Natural Minerals coming from the food look the same in ratio from raw complete/balaced and the grinds.
