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 turkey that's raised without antibiotics, steroids or added hormones. 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 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. 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.

  • 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.

    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.

  • Feeding my senior rescue dog RAW FOOD changed her life!

    By on

    When I rescued my senior Shorkie, she was overweight, had dandruff, kennel cough, respiratory problems, mammary tumors (benign), loose stools, scooted all the time, and had low energy. Since switching her to a raw food diet, ALL of those conditions are alleviated or gone. She has the energy of a MUCH younger dog. I will never feed her anything but raw again and Primal Nuggets are the first brand of raw food I've tried and probably still my favorite. She especially loves this flavor. JUST FEED YOUR DOG RAW!!!! It's even more convenient and easy to prepare than regular wet food. Just do it!

  • Disappointed

    By on

    I normally really like the Primal freeze-dried nuggets to give to my chihuahua/maltese 13 year old girl, and have been feeding her this for the past year or so, and I have to say I am so disappointed with the bag that we just received. I have ordered the turkey and sardine many times before and this is nothing like the previous ones I have received. There is hardly any smell, at all, but the most concerning thing to me is the consistency. It's just like sand! It is nothing like any of the other bags I have received and I really don't feel comfortable feeding this to my dog. I will be returning this and I am also going to contact Primal and let them know. I hope it was just a bad batch or I normally really like the Primal freeze-dried nuggets to give to my chihuahua/maltese 13 year old girl, and have been feeding her this for the past year or so, and I have to say I am so disappointed with the bag that we just received.

  • dog will love it!

    By on

    I found buying through Chewy the nuggets are fresher. In general the Turkey/Sardine is my favorite NO fishy smell and easy to handle ( crumbles with super ease). I top mine with high end kibble (chewy has several) to keep feeding my dog both the very best and economical.

  • Great Product.

    By on

    Our dog really likes this flavor. It is soft and therefore easy to break apart, which is nice because occasionally we give her a dry puck as a treat after her dinner. She likes the other flavors of Primal too, but the turkey and sardine is definitely one of her favorites. Very pleased.

  • Should have started sooner

    By on

    I have 4 Yorkies. My dogs were all previously on kibble, both for convenience and cost. Two of my Yorkies are 12 years old and within the last year they started showing obvious health issues. The vet bills have been in the thousands. A couple of months ago I did some research and decided to switch from kibble to Primal. Since feeding Primal the health of my Yorkies has improved dramatically! I cannot believe the difference in their appearance and health! I wish I would have started them with Primal sooner! I will pay for this premium dog food if it keep my pets as healthy as possible rather than have sick dogs that require excessive vet care. Nutrition makes a big difference!
