Customer Reviews

Primal Duck Formula Nuggets Grain-Free Freeze-Dried Dog Food is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 98.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Complete & Balanced raw 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. Chewy does a great job delivering my orders on time, every time. Bag reads: 1 ounce = 4 nuggets. 14 oz bag is approximately 56 nuggets. 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My dog LOVES this food I have a very picky jack russell. I want to feed her a healthy diet but had a hard time finding food she likes. I've tried everything. She would eat Nature's Variety Instinct Raw at first, but then started leaving it sit. It is too expensive to keep throwing away. So I finally tried this. You crumple up the nuggets and add a little water and mix it into a paste. I thought it would be time consuming but it's really not. I thought it looked like saw dust and she would hate it but no... she lapped it right up and then kept going back to lick her empty bowl! I've been feeding her this for a few months now and she still loves it! She mostly eats duck and pork flavors. The duck is easiest to break up. Because of this, there does tend to be some broken up shredded food in the bottom of the bag, as a previous reviewer mentioned. This is not a problem though because you should be breaking it up anyway. you just put the shredded stuff in the bowl, add the water and mash up with a fork. It's healthy, it's easy and my girl loves it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My Primal always arrives as a pile of powder. 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My GSD puppy goes nuts for this stuff I have a 10 week old GSD who isn't necessarily a picky eater. But when he knows he's going to get this stuff, he goes nuts. Spinning, sitting, panting, dancing, doing whatever he can to get the duck nugget. The reaction he has to this is unbelievable. I have been using them as treats for crate training. Because he gobbles them down so fast, I've made them into Primal duck popsicles. Basically, I break up a portion of the nugget (great use for the broken up fluffy bits since these nuggets fall apart very easily into crumbs and dust) into a muffin tin or jumbo ice tray, rehydrate with water, then freeze. I pop out the popsicles and put into a dish, I say "crate" and he goes RUNNING into the crate and into sit position so that I'll put down the dish. The Primal duck popsicles are also great because he's constantly chewing, so he can chew on this and the nuggets last way longer since it's frozen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ah-may-zing! I cautiously bought one bag of this to see what all the fuss was about; my boys were getting sick of all their kibble and topper rotations, major crisis. I easily crumbled 2 nuggets into a bowl, added 2 tbs of water, pressed it around, then pressed it onto the top of their kibble (no mixing, I wanted them to explore it's texture). They stared, sniffed, then licked it. One bite led to another, at the end they were slowly licking the bowl clean (like how we slowly enjoy ice cream). After only 4 nuggets, their poop instantly became darker, smaller and perfectly odorless. They now WANT to eat, finish every bite, no upset stomachs, grass throw ups. No freezer mess, strange mold growth or massive prep time. When I make a whole lot more money, I'd definitely make this their only food. It's the cleanest and healthiest freeze dried item out of all that I've tried.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Buy My dog was being very picky with her food, until I bought this product! I have been using her normal dry food and adding a nugget of this product on top crumbled up. She goes crazy as soon as she notices the bag and devours her food super quick now! I thought she loved the chicken freeze dried dog food until I bought the duck, and now she loves her food even more! Thanks to Primal for making a great natural product I can trust!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product!! 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm a fan 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.
