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!

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

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

    By on

    My dog is THE PICKIEST. I have tried soooo many brands including honest kitchen. Most of the time he would eat the food I put down for him but only after he starved all day because he didn't like it and only ate it out of being hungry and giving into it. Not with this though. He will gobble it right up as soon as the bowl hits the ground!!!! He does not itch anymore, his fur is very silky and soft. His stools are much better (not too firm not soft, just right) .. This food is seriously amazing. I just wish they made bigger bags!!!! TIP: When I first tried it I just put the nugget whole into some water and it wouldn't absorb it... BUT if you simply just crush the nugget up into the bowl My dog is THE PICKIEST. I have tried soooo many brands including honest kitchen.

  • Great Company

    By on

    I feed my dogs freeze dried raw dog food and they can only eat raw dog food. It is hard to find and If I run out I can't just run down to the store and pick some up. So it is so reassuring knowing I will never run out! Customer service has been fantastic as well.

  • Not what I thought it would be

    By on

    I have always purchased the frozen variety and thought this would be a better option. It seems to take forever to get the nuggets to soak in the water. I'm going back to the frozen ones at my local pet store. More expensive, but less hassle.

  • Well Tolerated By Sensitive Stomachs

    By on

    I have tried a few Primal formulas -both frozen and freeze dried. My dog has a pretty delicate stomach so transitioning to a new food can be challenging. This formula was tolerated without issue. I can add it into his kibble as well.

  • Yummy and easy fixing

    By on

    My dogs really took to this easy to prepare food. They eat Natural Balance dry and then we sprinkle 1/2 cube over each dogs food. Mix with warm water and they gobble it up.

  • Great for the picky eater

    By on

    We do some dog sitting for an older small dog from time-to-time. His owner says he does not eat for him. When we watch him, we take just a quarter of a brick and sprinkle it on his kibble. Loves it and eats everything!!!

  • Love these nuggets

    By on

    I'm a little guy, Chi-Terrier mix about 10 pounds, and I love 2-3 of these babies in the morning with some warm water and cut up chicken, and a couple more at dinnertime. Some cut up fresh green beans on top are tasty too. My fave of all the flavors by far.

  • Excellent Dog Food

    By on

    After my Yorkie was diagnosed with early renal issues I wanted to give him the best possible diet to slow this progression down . I was told about Primal Freeze Dried dog food. I already receive auto ship from Chewy for other dog products and found that they carry this specific dog food. I've been feeding Primal for 2 weeks now. Rusty LOVES it!! He's actually more active and satisfied after just two weeks. I can't wait for his next check-up!!

  • I was skeptical at first

    By on

    My daughter fed this to her Teacup Yorkie and raved about how she loved this food. Months later I finally fed it to my most finicky YorkiePoo, after spending much, much money on different foods, none of which she would show interest in. Lo and behold, she loved it. I feed it to her twice daily and am so happy that she loves it! Feeding her this has removed all frustration that feeding time would normally bring for me. I appreciate that it's freeze dried so you only rehydrate what is needed at the moment. No storing extra canned food, and no waste. All in all, both my pup and I are big fans!
