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.

It provides superior levels of amino and essential fatty acids while finely ground, fresh turkey bones supply optimum levels of calcium. Whole cold-water sardines are a good source of essential Omega-3 fatty acids which help to maintain healthy skin and coat.

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.

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. Our suggestion is to feed your pet based on the 2-3% rule. Feed 2-3% of your pet's body weight in rehydrated food daily. We recommend feeding your pet twice daily, so you should divide the total daily feeding weight in half and feed once in the morning and once in the evening.

Transition Instructions

Transition slowly. Allow a minimum of one week for your pet's digestive system to properly adjust from a highly processed diet to a new diet of freeze-dried raw foods. For days 1 - 3, begin by mixing Primal Formula into your pet's current food at a ratio that your pet will tolerate; you can start with as little as 1/4 Primal to 3/4 of your pet's current food. If your pet accepts the raw food during days 1 - 3, feed your pet raw foods only for the morning meal and their current food for the evening meal for days 4-7. When your pet has transitioned successfully (consuming freeze-dried raw foods readily, healthy, firm stool), you can begin feeding raw foods for both meals.

  • Pickiest eater on earth LOVES THIS

    By on

    My mini Aussie is an *****extremely***** picky eater when it comes to dog food (and even treats) but he *LOVES* this so much it makes us both so happy. My gsd puppy wants this too, and she is also picky about dog food. We go through this bag very fast and I've ordered so many bags thus far, so only complaint I have is that it is very expensive when you have to buy so many bags so often. I'd say at least 2 bags a month for him and that's just for a morning feeding for my mini aussie only.

  • My baby eats it in less than a minute

    By on

    After reading about how good is to feed raw to dogs I decided to try primal. My 6 month Yorkie loves it. It gives me peace of mind that he is eating and the food is really good for him with great ingredients. I would definitely recommend this food to everyone. I also read to transition from current food to primal is better to start with the turkey salmon 1st then maybe chicken and so on depends on the protein level so it doesn't upset your baby tummy!

  • one of the best flavors

    By on

    My yorkie loves this flavor and it's surprisingly one of the softest nuggets I've tried. I've tried the chicken, lamb, and duck and the turkey sardine one is softest. It broke apart so easily and felt fresher. It makes it easier to break up and absorbs the water better. It is definitely smellier than the others so his mustache smells after but he loves it.

  • Worked better and faster than prescription diet food.

    By on

    My long hair chihuahua had been on prescription diet food for a year with minimal results. My brother suggested Primal since a friend he dog sits for used it and had great success. My dog loves the food and eats every bite which he did not with the prescription food. 7 mos later reached his goal weight. I stayed with the Turkey because it had the lowest fat and calorie.

  • Good quality food

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    I've been feeding my toy Aussies Primal Freeze-dried nuggets for about a year now. They really like the Pork, Duck and Beef. I bought the Turkey & Sardine formula but my fur babies do not care for this one. So, I will stick with what they like. The nuggets are easy to feed BUT they are expensive and do not last long.

  • Nuggets of Flavor and Goodness

    By on

    Both of my dogs gobbled down the Turkey & Sardine freeze-dried Primal Nuggets I broke up on top of their dry dog food. I could tell right away they liked the smell and taste of them. I even like the way they smell; wholesome. I will definitely purchase Primal Nuggets again.

  • Tiny Biewer Terrier

    By on

    Breeder recommended Primal for my puppy who weighs under 2 pounds at 5 months. She was concerned about hypoglycemia. When I got her at 3 months she weighed about 1 pound 10 ounces. Yes it's pricy but she's worth it. She looks forward to it every morning.

  • Skip this flavor

    By on

    My Chihuahua likes the beef primal nuggets, but does not like these. She consistently walks away from this flavor and leaves it uneaten. The texture of this flavor in the bag is very dry and crumbly, whereas the beef is softer.
