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

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

Feed adult dogs the equivalent of 2-3% of their body weight in rehydrated food per day (see chart). For puppies 4 to 8 weeks old, feed 4 1/2-8% of their body weight. For puppies 8 weeks and older, feed 4% of their body weight. For pregnant and lactating dogs, feed 4-8% of their body weight.

Your dog's activity, age, metabolism and breed may affect overall feeding quantity.

Keep bag sealed until ready to use. For optimum freshness after opening, store in a cool, dry place. Be sure to seal bag completely after feeding. 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.

  • Great dog food

    By on

    I give this to my 13 year old chi/malti mix and she absolutely loves it! I crumble the nuggets with my fingers and mix with warm bottled water or Honest Kitchen raw goat's milk. My little girl looks and acts so much healthier now. Her hair used to always feel like it had a slightly greasy film on it and that has disappeared. Her eyes always had a discharge that would turn brown and harden. I was constantly cleaning and trimming the hair around her eyes. Her eyes no longer run now. I'm very happy with this dog food. The only problem I've experienced with this food is that the nuggets sometimes arrive crumbled and falling apart, but I've been using it long enough that I can figure out how I give this to my 13 year old chi/malti mix and she absolutely loves it!

  • Dog food for a cat

    By on

    I didn't realize these were for a dog when I purchased for my cat. Good news is my cat thinks she's a dog. She likes these nuggets. They aren't too hard to get her meal going either. I just crumble them myself, add water and mix.

  • This is a very high quality food.

    By on

    I have an older rescue Chihuahua. She is a picky eater but she gobbles the Duck Primal Nuggets right up! I pour hot water form the tea kettle over the nuggets to re-hydrate them and they are ready to go. For some reason, she prefers the freeze-dried to the frozen. The only problem I have had is, my last bag from Chewy was smashed, and it wasn't possible to measure the powder.

  • Complete & Balanced raw

    By on

    CHICKEN and DUCK freeze dried raw formulas: I am glad I finally found a "complete and balanced" form of raw to feed my dogs. My dogs love the taste of this as-is (dry) or mixed with a 2-3 tablespoons of water after crumbling into dog dish. I experimented to see how they preferred this when hydrated. Ingredients are impressive. The nuggets are easy to crumble. I feed 2 nuggets in the morning per dog (I have two 6 1/2 lb dogs). In the afternoon, I feed other foods. I'd like to try the beef formula, but "beef" is not a listed ingredient. Primal's (manufacturer) website explains the dehydrating process, differences in color, and other information.

If I feed 2 nuggets per dog (total of 4 nuggets) morning only, 56 / 4 = one bag will last 14 days. NOTE: this is what my dogs are fed in the morning only. They eat small meals 2-3 times a day, depending on their energy levels. … more

  • My Primal always arrives as a pile of powder.

    By on

    The product is wonderful quality. However, almost ever bar/cube is crumbled and not in solid form. If I didn't have strong knowledge of the amount necessary per serving, it would be very confusing. This is not the first time I have ordered Primal products from Chewy and the cubes are essentially a large pile of dust.

  • Great Product!!

    By on

    My two picky eaters love this! I mix it with a bit of water as directed, and we use it as a topper on their regular food. They love it! It's a bit pricy for me to use as their main food as they are big dogs and we would go through it so quickly based on their weight. Using it as we do, it will last all month. Excellent product!

  • I'm a fan

    By on

    Love the convenience. Thinking to get cat version instead and augment with my own veggies since protein percentage is higher. Have to check price differential. They'll need bigger bags and I hope more ppl buy this so price comes down. Hope meat sourcing is good. I'm a big believer in raw.
