  • 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 Raw Nuggets

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    I am giving 3 stars because it sounds nutritious, but the texture is like styrofoam. Althought all three of my cats eat it mixed in their food as a topper, one of them throws up immediately afterwards. After the third time, I am no longer giving it to him.

    Be Careful with Beef

    By on

    My cat has thrown up every time he has eaten this food. I’ve never had a problem with any other food so I think it’s the beef. I looked it up and apparently beef is a common allergen for cats. I would recommend trying out the other flavors first. All the other flavors of Primal have been great.

    Little extra work

    By on

    Kitty approved. They don't mind the little extra work for me... Nice to know they are having something so good for them. I have put it into the rotation of foods they get. A OK.

    Not worth the money

    By on

    My cats would not eat this. It takes quite a while for it to hydrate and my cats did not like the taste- I have 3 cats. This is quite expensive for me to have to now through it away. I am very disgusted.

    Meets her demands and mine, but expensive

    By on

    The old girl -- Cat -- is a picky eater who's allergic to poultry and this old girl -- me -- wants her to eat organic to avoid glyphosate. This food is organic, contains none of the ubiquitous poultry ingredients, plus it includes bone, etc, that other foods don't. AND SHE EATS IT. Of course, now that I've said that, she'll probably decide it's revolting. Stay tuned.

    I would not recommend primal nuggets

    By on

    A little back ground my kitty is not a picky eater. He is elderly and We would like him to be around for as long he can. He has been on urinary support cat food and our vet suggested to add some freeze dried food to his diet. He's had this addition for about six months no problem. Ordered primal nuggets because they were a little less expensive. Our cat will not touch them. So, thought our dog might like them. Nope, she will not touch them and she eats cat poop. We've tried a couple different brands they are freeze dried organ meats and they all smell but this one truly smells awful. Wish we could return this.

    Best freeze-dried nuggets

    By on

    My cat loves these nuggets. Has more energy now and coat is shiny. I love that they are healthy and more like what they would eat in the wild.

    Margo’s new favorite

    By on

    Thankfully my picky cat will eat this beef & salmon recipe. She used to eat the pork, it was the only thing she would eat... that is until the formula was changed. She refused to eat the last two bags I bought her of the pork.
