Question Finally going raw.. Primal or S&C?

Wellness Core Grain-Free Puppy canned food and occasionally Wellness Core Grain-Free Puppy kibble (both rated 5 stars) is what I've been feeding Chica for several weeks. She is doing a lot better on it than what I was feeding her before (can't even remember what it was), but I'm treating her for yeast infections in her ears and she still sometimes chews at her paws, tail, etc. She also just isn't very interested in her food. Now that she seems healed up from her spay surgery, I'm ready to get serious about switching her to raw. I found a local store that sells Primal and Stella & Chewy. From those brands, what would you all recommend and why?

I use both! My kids love Primal better but S&C has more proteins so we rotate around

I also vote for trying both!
Both are outstanding, high quality foods.

I agree with trying both. I've fed both. They are both about the same price where I'm from (bout a dollar difference) I mainly feed S&C to my girl Braxton because she will not touch kibble. They love the Duck and Lamb flavors. But we've tried beef and chicken, Surf'n turf as well. It is like doggie crack! If your pup ends up living it it's hard to go back lol.

Thank you all for your responses! OK, so I bought the Primal duck and the S&C lamb. Chica was a little interested in the duck last night, but only nibbled at it slightly at first. I mixed in some of her kibble and she ate the kibble out of it first and then ate the rest later. So, she likes the duck "ok". This morning I fed her the lamb and she was not interested in it whatsoever, with or without kibble mixed in. She eventually ate the kibble out of it and left the rest. So, I'm taking the S&C lamb back today and will pick up the chicken and beef. Hopefully she'll like one of those (or both). I would really like to find something that she is excited about eating. She isn't a very food motivated dog unless she's getting a special treat like cheese, cooked meat or tripe... or if she's trying to sneak some cat food, lol. She just doesn't care much for dog food and I was hoping that would all change when introduced to raw. So far, that isn't the case but I'm going to keep on trying.
