    Great to use as treats too

    By CitiVerse on Feb 3, 2020

    My kitty is on a raw diet, so as his treats I rotate different Primal freeze-dried flavors. He loves this one, and since it's not too crumbly he gets some exercise chasing pieces around the apartment.

    Really Hopeful

    By Aubs on Jan 13, 2020

    Bought this highly recommended food for my cat who started over grooming. I was really hoping that this food would help her stop being so itchy and it did! Her coat looked better and she had less dandruff. Unfortunately, after she begrudgingly ate it for 3 days, she could not stop throwing it up and Bought this highly recommended food for my cat who started over grooming. I was really hoping that this food would help her stop being so itchy and it did! Her coat looked better and she had less dandruff. Unfortunately, after she begrudgingly ate it for 3 days, she could not stop throwing it up and then refused to touch it. I really like the quality of the food and felt that it helped her a lot but she feels otherwise. Maybe some other cats will like it. … more

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Kitten has issues with this variety.

    By on

    Our kitten loves the Primal Chicken and Salmon but cannot tolerate Beef and Salmon. Immediately vomits after eating, so not sure if beef is too rich or what. These nuggets are definitely hard to rehydrate than Chicken/Salmon, they are a lot denser and difficult to use. Seems to be quite a difference in nuggets, not sure why we are having a problem.

    Unfortunately not a win for my cats

    By on

    My cats didn't like this flavor at all. But others (pork) were a hit!

    Not for my cats

    By on

    It takes me up to 24 hours to rehydrate. By the time its rehydrated it looks like it's not ok to serve. It never got to the point of a moist palatable food. My cats refuse to eat it. I won't buy or recommend again.

    Hard as Bricks

    By on

    We've been feeding our six cats the Stella and Chewy's freeze-dried foods (which they love and I can't recommend highly enough). Tried these Primal things when the S&C were out of stock here. HUGE mistake. While they claim this is cat food, there's no way our cats could eat it. The bricks are about the size of a charcoal briquet and remain hard as a rock even after soaking in hot water for over half an hour. Five out of six walked up to their bowls and looked up at us as if to say "are you serious?" before turning and walking away. If you want to feed freeze-dried - try the Stella and Chewy's - little grape sized nuggets that soften in about ten minutes. Forget about these bricks.

    cats arent interested at all

    By on

    I have an older cat who can not eat canned food. He seemed to enjoy another brand of freeze dried, but wont even look at this. My dogs love it tho.

    Wanted it to work....

    By on

    I have three cats. None of them would go near this stuff. Now I have a whole bag of it in my freezer......hope it works for others because I really wanted it to be my kitties main source of food. Dang.
