It looks like Primal has a little more meat in it than S/C, I'd say go back to it if your dog was doing better on it anyway.

And even though premade raw is still inferior to prey model raw, it's still leaps and bounds better than kibble.

Yeah good point, CP. Considering cost (which is definitely a consideration for me at this point), I'd prefer to feed a good grain-free food than a premade raw one. But then again, considering cost, it's cheaper to feed PMR than either option so I'm set!

Anyway, here's the ingredients difference between the two (i'll put the animal-based ingredients in bold):

Stella and Chewy's
Chicken (ground with bone), chicken liver, chicken gizzard, pumpkin seed, organic cranberries, organic spinach, organic broccoli, organic beets, organic carrots, organic squash, organic apples, organic blueberries, calcium carbonate, potassium chloride, direct-fed microorganisms (Pediococcus acidilactici, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium longum, Enterococcus faecium), magnesium oxide, natural tocopherols, vitamin E supplement, biotin, potassium iodide, vitamin D3 supplement.
Primal
Chicken, Raw Ground Chicken Bone, Turkey, Turkey Liver, Turkey Heart, Apples, Carrots, Butternut Squash, Ground Flaxseeds, Montmorillonite Clay, Chicken Eggs, Broccoli, Lettuce, Spinach, Dried Kelp, Apple Cider Vinegar, Parsley, Honey, Salmon Oil, Olive Oil, Blueberries, Alfalfa Sprouts, Persimmons, Duck Eggs, Pheasant Eggs, Quail Eggs, Inulin, Rosemary, Sage, Clove
Just from a quick glance you can see Primal has a lot more animal-based ingredients and is, therefore, a lot better! However, they both have too much bone too, IMO.
