  • Because of the importance of moisture in a raw diet, Primal recommends 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 cats the equivalent of 2-3% of their body weight in rehydrated food per day.

Transition Instructions

Transition slowly. Begin by mixing 1/4 parts freeze-dried to 3/4 parts current diet. Gradually increase amount of freeze-dried daily.

  • Adult Cats: Divide total daily feeding portion into 2 meals.

  • Kittens and pregnant or lactating females: Divide total daily feeding portion into 3-4 meals.

    Primal Freeze Dried saved my IBD Ragdoll's life!!!

    By on

    After 5 years of daily vomiting, hair loss, weight loss, itching, and an overall very sick and miserable Ragdoll cat...this food healed him literally OVERNIGHT!! I had received a few samples from my local pet store of the beef & salmon flavor, and he LOVED it...he DEVOURED it!! In fact, all of my cats devoured it!! I must mention, however, that all three of my cats only liked it dry. I don't rehydrate because they only like it dry. This is not a concern for my cats because they drink a lot of water. I decided to order a bag of the Rabbit and the Beef & Salmon from Chewy, and switched my IBD cat over immediately (along with the aid of raw goat's milk which acts as a natural probiotic).

When I say he healed and stopped vomiting OVERNIGHT... I mean literally OVERNIGHT!! Since switching him a month ago, he has gained 1-1/2 pounds; his fur is coming back and is so soft; he has not vomited even once; and is much more social and happy. I still cannot believe it myself! I have watched him improve on a daily basis, and can honestly say it's truly a miracle!! I have tried every top of the line food on the market, and have spent $1000's trying to fix him. Primal freeze dried is the medicine he needed. It's just that simple. I had him at the vet a week ago, and even she commented on how remarkable he looked since his last visit. When I told her I switched him to raw, she then changed her tune, and told me she doesn't support raw diets. I was shocked. My cat is living proof that it works! Research it! I have 3 cats, and they like the Rabbit, Beef & Salmon, & Chicken & Salmon the most. It may be expensive, but they eat every last morsel, and nothing goes to waste. I will never feed anything else other than Primal's freeze dried. If you have an IBD cat, PLEASE consider spending the extra money and try this. Get him/her off commercial processed cat food, and treat him to the natural raw diet that your carnivore deserves and NEEDS! … more

    Not for us

    By on

    I can't recommend this flavor because 2 feedings in and my cat threw it up both times. I even added digestive enzymes with no success. We previously tried the turkey variety and he enjoyed that but I was/am suspecting a turkey allergy at 10 yrs of age, so trying to switch things up.

    Cat thinks these are pretty tasty

    By on

    I've been adding primal nuggets to my cats breakfast after someone gave me a bag their cat wouldn't eat. The first bag was chicken flavored and he ate them....but wasn't super excited. All that has changed with the beef and salmon flavor. He really enjoys this flavor and can't get enough. Highly recommend if you are adding freeze dried to your cat's diet.

    Primal Nuggets

    By on

    My cat seems to love the Beef & Salmon formula, however there are other flavors that I would like to try, but not sure if she would like them. I wish there were small sampling size packages for sale, so that I can be more adventurous without having to waste $30. on flavors that she may not eat.

    Good Product, Fussy Kitty

    By on

    My vet suggested these as an alternative to dry food. She gave me a few samples of this flavor and the chicken flavor. My kitty didn't like the chicken one but she devoured the sample of beef and salmon so I ordered a bag. Well kitties being kitties, she decided she didn't like it after all. I am sure the product is wonderful but my kitty is fussy.

    Cats love this.

    By on

    I take a brick and break it up into smaller pieces. My cats eat it dry and love it. Sometimes I sprinkle some over canned food and sometimes I just put pieces in a bowl. I like the variety of flavors. The only thing is I wish they were smaller pieces so I didn't have to break it up.

    I love Primal but beef doesn’t work for all my cats

    By on

    I love Primal and truly feel it’s the best food on the market. However, I have 6 cats. 4 of my cats love the beef and 2 throw it up the minute it goes down. I also had the same thing happen with a raw beef topper from Only Natural Pet, I picked up at PetSmart and the rabbit from Stella & Chewy’s. I think this is a wonderful food but I don’t think all cats can tolerate beef raw. If the beef doesn’t work, don’t give up on the the brand or raw food in general. Give another protein a try. My cats favorites are the Primal Turkey and the Chicken and Salmon. They also like Duck Duck Goose from Stella & Chewy’s. They have never thrown up on these proteins.

    Great Food, but not all cats agree

    By on

    I bought this to give my cat some variety. I had been using the Chicken & Salmon formula and he absolutely loves that! Got this and he won't touch it. I have 2 other cats that are not as picky, so I added it to their food and they think it is wonderful! I'll go back to the Chicken and Salmon for the picky eater and let the other girls have the Beef and Salmon and everyone will be happy.

    good food, but way over priced

    By on

    3 stars because the food itself is great quality but also 3 stars because chewy sells it way overpriced. I found it for $13 at my local pet shop. I’m sure you could too
