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 chicken that's raised without antibiotics, steroids or added hormones. It provides superior levels of amino and essential fatty acids while finely ground, fresh chicken 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!


Wash all work surfaces, utensils, hands and food bowls with hot, soapy water after handling freeze-dried meats and poultry. Keep away from children.

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.

Transition Instructions

Transition slowly. Begin by mixing 1/4 parts freeze-dried to 3/4 parts current diet. Gradually increase amount of freeze-dried daily.

  • Happy with Primal!

    By on

    I tried this product after reading people online raving about how well their pets were doing eating it. My dog has colitis & only eats prescription food, or he gets sick. As soon as the box came from Chewy, he was so excited. I got the chicken & added water to one nugget. He has never been so enthused about a food. We have been going slowly in the past 2 weeks from 1 to 1/12 to 2 nuggets. No digestive upset at all. We are still feeding his prescription food but less. It is easy & clean to feed, poops are small & he is so happy! He is a little...only 13 lbs. but we tell him it is his "wolf" food. Lol

  • Perfect kibble additive to incorporate raw food

    By on

    Emma loves Primal nuggets added to her kibble! She is on a grain-free diet but I like to incorporate raw food into her diet so I crumble primal over her kibble, she loves it. It gives her the nutrients she needs in a way that I can afford. A pure raw food diet for a large breed puppy can be expensive so this is a perfect alternative!

  • Too crumbly

    By on

    The patties were mostly crushed when received and extremely dry. The best I can do with them is to sprinkle it on my dog's food. She likes the flavor.

  • The Ultimate Dog Food

    Primal has been my favorite dog food since I read the ingredients and tried it out on my pups. The ingredients are mostly organic, sourced responsibly, and full of nutrients. Our dogs love the flavors and the vet is happy with how lean and healthy it keeps them. Only Primal for our pups!

  • Closest to a dinner table

    Our miniature golden doodle will only eat Primal nuggets. After spending money and time on various excellent brands with no luck, she devoured PRIMAL. Worth the extra price as this matches the extra quality resulting in health and happiness for our puppy. Thank you!

  • Finally solved GI issues

    By on

    I have a 5 lb Chihuahua who battles diarrhea, even with high quality foods like kibble (Merrick) and can (Dave's). After watching Pet Fooled, I decided to switch to raw. I tried frozen and freeze dried. He won't touch frozen but inhales the re-hydrated freeze dried. Yes, it adds extra step/time to feedings (I have 4 dogs and 2 cats) but so far after 2 weeks, solid poops and happy dog!
