Hard as rocks

Ordered this and Stella and Chewys to try for my two cats. These were hard as rocks, could not crumble to save my life. The kitties seemed to not hate it? But they could also have just been starving because they’re on a diet. They definitely had issues eating it. They would pick the chunks out of the water and then not be able to eat them bc they were too hard

Coco’s New Favorite

Coco has been thriving on Primal Nuggets for quite some time. When I discovered the Beef & Salmon, I ordered with my next batch of Nuggets. When I gave it to her for the first time, she smelled it several times, backed away from her bowl, then returned and inhaled it like there’s no tomorrow! She absolutely loved it! It’s her new favorite!

ROCK nuggets

IF I could actually crumble them as instructed...they might be ok. Needed a players to break them up. PRIMAL freeze dried ANY nuggets......for cats or dogs suck......If you want good freeze dried for your cats.......go Stella and Chewy.

Wet upon arrival

This is the first time I’ve ordered this flavor of Primal. My cat usually loves the chicken & salmon flavor. I decided to switch things up and try this one, but when opening the bag, the bricks were super greasy and almost wet. I’ve never had that experience before. I’ll still give these a try and see if my cat likes them. Ingredients are great as always, just a little odd how sticky and wet these were upon opening the bag.

Cats Love Primal

I have two cats that absolutely love Primal Freeze-Dried Nuggets! They prefer to eat it in the freeze-dried state, not mixed into a wet food. They both eat raw food, but love this as a supplemental food to go along with their raw. Thank you, Chewy!!

Happy cat Happy human

My cat loved this, they are a little struggle to break up and re-hydrate, but worth it both cats love it.

Greasy: Recommend draining and rinsing before feeding

My aging cats were reluctant to eat this food until I started rinsing it after hydrating. I think the fat content was too much for them.

Not a good product

I’ve tried primal in every other flavor and have never had an issue like I did with these. The chunks were hard as a rock and even after rehydrating very difficult to break up for the kitties. Customer service was nice enough to replace this bag with their usual duck which never has this issue.

Yummy yummy

That’s what my finicky cats say when I open the bag. I’m hoping they like it just as much in a few weeks. If so, we’ve got a winner!

Perfect for a picky cat

I have one cat that will eat anything and another who is so picky when it comes to wet food. This works for both cats cause you can rehydrate it or give it to them still dry. It’s a winner for us!
