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 cat 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.

    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.

  • 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!

  • PrimalNuggestsTurkeySardine

    By on

    So glad I found this product! The Turkey & Sardine is easy to crumble on their kibble and they absolutely love it! My little Pit Bull who was a victim of cruelty has some stomach issues and is finicky, turning away from most canned food, but this has him eating great! They like all flavors, although some are easier to crumble. My sister has a tiny dog and was having difficulty finding anything to make her eat, so I sent her home with one of these bars and she was ecstatic -- her tiny dog ate the whole thing! Of course, now she orders it too.

    This review is for the frozen primal dog food not the freeze dried ( I don't know if there is a difference) I did not purchase my bad at chewy i actually purchased it at my local pet supply store, after my dog who is almost 10 started losing her hair along with all of her energy and weight (she dropped down to 2 pounds, instead of her usual 4 1/2 pounds) I had been informed of raw dog food before but my dog is the pickiest eater ever. She turns her nose up at anything canned so i figured this would be no different, but i decided to give it a try. My dog devoured her first nugget. She is now on her second bag, and she went from being completely helpless (she hadn't gone up or down the stairs for This review is for the frozen primal dog food not the freeze dried ( I don't know if there is a difference) I did not purchase my bad at chewy i actually purchased it at my local pet supply store, after my dog who is almost 10 started losing her hair along with all of her energy and weight (she dropped down to 2 pounds, instead of her usual 4 1/2 pounds) I had been informed of raw dog food before but my dog is the pickiest eater ever.

  • DOGS LOVE THIS!

    By on

    We read where this was some of the best food four our four babies so decided to try it. After the first feeding they could hardly wait for me to let it soak the 15 minutes. You would think they were starving even though we keep the Fromm's down 24/7, which they also eat. I would highly recommend Turkey & Sardine Formula. Will be trying out other brands this week.

  • Primal Turkey & Sardine Formula Nuggets !!!

    By on

    My dogs Sunny and Candy are very picky eaters specially Sunny, and since I switch to dry formula nuggets, he eats very well without making any fuss. I also noticed that they digest system is much better, specially Candy since she's 10 years old and has some digestive issues. I definitely will recommend this product especially the Turkey & Sardine Formula Nuggets .

  • My pup loves it!

    By on

    I wanted to start my pup on a raw diet but couldn't handle dealing with raw meat and having to transport it so I decided to go with the freeze dried type. Primal was highly suggested by a local pet shop but they didn't carry the freeze dried variety which isn't a problem because Chewy does! I crush it up with my hands and put it in water and mash it up more with a fork and mix it up with her dry food and she just LOVES it! Her stools are perfect and her appetite stellar. I feel good knowing I'm giving her a quality product and love the convenience Chewy brings to our lives. Thank you so much.

  • My Pug girls' favorite of the Primal variety

    By on

    This one is by far, my girls' favorite flavor. I love that is has Sardines in it (NO, you can't smell a fishy smell), because it gives that added fish oil for omegas. I have experimented with all the the flavors and when this bag gets opened, they go bananas! Their coats are beautiful since switching to Primal nuggets, as well. Also, their weight is managed - and if you have or know someone that has Pugs, you know that this is not an easy task at all!!

  • Primal Raw dog food

    By on

    After hearing a group of pet owners talking about feeding their dogs a raw diet and all the benefits of feeding raw. I thought I would switch mine to a raw dog food. It is the best decision I've ever made when it comes to my fur babies. My 14 yr old Chihuahua has always had bad itchy skin and sores on her legs from her biting them from itching. I could always feel my 4 lb female Yorkie's backbone and she was extremely skinny. My male yorkie would eat the outside cat and other dogs poo. Well the sores are healing, the little one has gained weight and the poo eater has stopped eating it. The raw diet has made them much healthier
