Questions & Answers

So one 14 oz bag for a large dog, 86 lbs., is one serving?!?
Answer by ChewyOct 09, 2018
For dogs weighing 80-99 pounds, it's recommended to give them 32 nuggets daily and dividing it into two meals. One nugget is approximately 4 ounces and a 14-ounce bag holds about 56 nuggets. The 14-ounce bag will last approximately 1.5 days.

Is this a good choice of food to pack in an emergency evacuation kit? I need to know how long is shelf life when it remains freeze dried. Thanks
Answer by ChewyOct 09, 2018
Most freeze dried foods that you buy are sealed under nitrogen in resilient packaging, allowing for anywhere from a two to twenty-five year shelf life. Freeze dried fruits are on the lower end of the shelf life spectrum, lasting a little over two years. However, when serving rehydrated freeze-dried food for your pet to eat, we recommend no more than a two-hour service window for the food to be out of refrigeration.

Where is the beef sourced from? Is it from the US?
Answer by ChewyJun 08, 2021
Primal sources their beef from the US and New Zealand.

can 1 of these be broken up and added to dry kibble to get them to eat their dry food?
Answer by ChewyOct 09, 2018
Crumbling some of the Freeze-dried formula nuggets as a topper is a really popular approach feeders take to boost palatability and improve nutritional efficacy of traditional processed feeding formats. Please keep in mind their recommended daily caloric intake when figuring out how much to feed. If you are uncertain, we recommend consulting with your veterinarian.

My babies love all things Primal.

This time of year( Hurricane season) I switch to freeze dried. I wish that these companies would listen to their customers and make larger bags for those of us with large dogs. 1 bag lasts me 2 days. My dogs deserve to eat healthy but I can’t go broke either. If you have to evacuate, space is also an issue. Please make like a 5 lb bag or more. I am starting to look at other companies for this reason. No reflection on Chewy.

Great dog food!

This is one of the most nutritious and convenient dog foods I have ever fed my dogs. Started out my new chihuahua puppy on it and he loves it. Really convenient when traveling.

3 nuggets per meal for 13 lbs dog

I want to provide a data point, since people complains about differences in guidelines from the previous version and this new one. I have a 13 pounds shih tzu boy, 11 months old. Three nuggests per meal, and twice a day works the best for him. I also give him some fresh fruits / cooked shrimps / boiled broccoli on a daily basis. I tried 2 nuggests, 2.5 nuggests and 4 nuggests per meal as well, and none of them works as good as 3 (by observing his poop amount, smell, and touch feel).

Great for Hikes & Camping or replacing fresh chicken

This freeze dried chicken is amazing and my dog LOVES it. He is a malachowsky aka a malamute chow chow husky with some german and swiss shepherd. The primal nuggets are very light, so perfect for hikes or camping when you need to lighten the load. We generally feed him chicken for dinner, so this is a great back up. It's expensive, so I recommend getting it specifically for travel or to supplement everyday feeding.

You can make freeze dried raw food at home, you know? Pricey

You can freeze dry meat by putting it in a cooler for a day with dry ice (sold at the supermarket.) (If you want to make jerky, just get yourself an instant pot duo, which has a dehydrator on it. Dogs love it. Or, you can feel free to buy these convenient freeze-dried nuggets. Though, our puppy finally had to make the switch to healthy kibble to have some fiber (barley, oats, etc.) We did get him Open Farm also (which seems to do well with his tummy also). Just letting you know your options because I'm personally tired of companies that act like they invented the wheel charging like it's a rocket to the moon. Just sayin'.

Not good quality

We are loyal Primal and Chewy customers. The latest batch of the chicken nuggets smelled old. (Expires in 23)We had some of a previous batch, leftover (Expires in May 22) and it was very different! Our dog won’t touch the new package and our cat, who eats everything, won’t eat it either. They both eat the older bag and it smells much better, like what we’re used to getting for the past 3 years. Need to return it.

Great food

Both my GSDs love this food! I use it as a supplement. The only flavor that isn’t that great is turkey and sardine. My older dog likes it but the younger one doesn’t. They love the chicken, salmon and lamb. It’s easy to travel with compared to fresh food (which we use as well). Especially for camping. This makes it easier to feed them when traveling.
