Key Benefits

  • Primal Nuggets allow you to give your canine friend all the benefits of a raw diet in a convenient freeze-dried form. The variety of ingredients mimics what the diet of animals in the wild are in a superior bio-available composition. It's grain and gluten-free, and doesn't contain any corn, wheat, or soy, making it great for dog's with sensitivities.
  • They use human-grade fresh beef that's raised without antibiotics, steroids or added hormones. It provides superior levels of amino and essential fatty acids while finely ground, fresh beef bones supply optimum levels of calcium. Cold-water salmon oil is a good source of essential Omega-3 fatty acids which help to maintain healthy skin and coat.
  • Organic produce supplies food-derived vitamins A, B-complex, C and D while organic, unrefined nutritional supplements help with digestion and circulation. Organic coconut oil supplies short and medium chain saturated fatty acids, which mimic the natural bacteria found in the digestive tract, further aiding in digestion.
  • Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant and taurine helps your dog maintain optimum retinal health. The nuggets are naturally preserved without the need for any synthetic preservatives.
  • Made in the USA!

Feeding Instructions

Because of the importance of moisture in a raw diet, we recommend rehydrating Freeze-Dried Formula for optimum nutrition absorption. To rehydrate, add 1 tablespoon of water for every nugget or 1/4 cup of water for 4 nuggets. For best rehydrating results, break nugget into small pieces and mix thoroughly with water to force moisture into product.

Feed adult dogs the equivalent of 2 - 3% of their body weight in rehydrated food per day. This feeding chart is based on 2.5% and formula rotation. Your dog's activity, age, metabolism and breed may affect overall feeding quantity. Note: Feeding percentages based on rehydration weight of product.

Weight Daily Feeding (Nuggets)
5 lbs 2
10 lbs 4
20 lbs 8
40 lbs 16
60 lbs 24
80 lbs 32
100 lbs 40

Adult dogs: Divide total daily feeding portion into 2 meals. Puppies and pregnant or lactating females: Divide total daily feeding portion into 3 - 4 meals.

Safe Handling Instructions: • Keep bag sealed until ready to use, and be sure to seal bag completely after feeding. Keep freeze-dried meats and poultry separate from other foods. • For optimum freshness after opening, store in a cool, dry place. • Once hydrated, Freeze-Dried Formula will maintain optimum freshness for 3-5 days under refrigeration. • We recommend feeding freeze-dried foods in a stainless steel bowl.

    My dogs absolutely love Primal! I have 2 large dogs and I use it as a topper/mix in their dry dog food and even the finickiest of my dogs will eat it. 4 paws up in this household. Plus, Chewy offers an amazing price with the Autoship 'n' Save with fast shipping. Highly recommend.

  • My Senior pup loves this product.

    By on

    So convenient and my older pup loves this product. No farting, burping, etc. like other dog foods I've tried. In the evening, I simply put his portion for the following day in a zip lock bag with enough water to absorb, put in the fridge, and the next morning I massage the bag to make sure everything is soft and feed as needed. I also mix with his usual dry food as well right now.

  • not the same consistency as the other formulas

    By on

    The Primal Beef Formula is a much harder patty and not easy to crumble up like the Chicken, Duck and Turkey formulas. It doesn't absorb the water like the others do.

  • My two love this!

    By on

    My two Yorkies absolutely love this! They are 12 and 15 and I have tried every dog food that I could. I have been cooking for our two girls for years. I decided on a whim to give this a try and they absolutely licked the bowl clean! I'm elated to have found Primal Raw. I just got the venison and chicken-haven't tried the chicken, but they loved the venison. Of course, beef was their first introduction. I hope to wean them from human food and switch to Primal totally!

  • Great products

    By on

    I have a 9year old yorkie that has terrible allergies and after spending $$$$ at the vet with no luck except to give a controversial drug Aproquel I decided to try new foods and was feeding raw organic meat mainly beef because chicken seems to aggravate her condition with skin break outs. It helped but made it hard to travel so I have had her on Primal Beef for about a month and it seems to be going well plus she has lost a little weight as I think I was over feeding before.

    Have purchased Primal freeze dried meat in the past -- our first experience with the beef. Dogs love it, and it seems to provide a nice change from chicken, duck, and venison.

  • High quality food

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    I tried close to 15 different foods in the last couple of years and I even made my own. My Shellie became very picky in her golden years. She loved the Primal Beef but not the Venison or Turkey / Sardine. This food is made of high quality ingredients and is easy to serve. They price is high for the amount but it pleased my Sheltie so I was happy.
