Organic coconut oil supplies short and medium chain saturated fatty acids, which mimic the natural bacteria found in the digestive tract, further aiding in digestion.

The variety of ingredients mimics what the diet of animals in the wild are in a superior bio-available composition. It's grain and gluten-free, and doesn't contain any corn, wheat, or soy, making it great for dog's with sensitivities.

Because of the importance of moisture in a raw diet, we recommend rehydrating Freeze - Dried Formula for optimum nutrition absorption. To rehydrate, add 1 tablespoon of water for every nugget or 1/4 cup of water for 4 nuggets. For best rehydrating results, break nugget into small pieces and mix thoroughly with water to force moisture into product.

Feed Adult dogs the equivalent of 2 - 3% of their body weight in rehydrated food per day. This feeding chart is based on 2.5% and formula rotation. Your dog's activity, age, metabolism and breed may affect overall feeding quantity. Note: Feeding percentages based on rehydration weight of product.

Adult dogs: Divide total daily feeding portion into 2 meals. Puppies and pregnant or lactating females: Divide total daily feeding portion into 3 - 4 meals.

Safe Handling Instructions:

  • Keep bag sealed until ready to use, and be sure to seal bag completely after feeding. Keep freeze - dried meats and poultry separate from other foods.

  • For optimum freshness after opening, store in a cool, dry place.

  • Once hydrated, Freeze - Dried Formula will maintain optimum freshness for 3 - 5 days under refrigeration.

  • We recommend feeding freeze - dried foods in a stainless steel bowl.

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.

  • My dog loves it.

    By on

    Got my puppy in October. For two months the only way I could get him to eat his food is my crushing treats on top. And even with that he wouldn't eat it all. Decided to try Primal from a FB discussion. To be honest I didn't even know the benefits of raw food. First time I gave it to him he licked the bowl clean. Now I can't get it prepped up quick enough for him. He jumps and barks with excitement for his food. Only downfall is that its a major price different compared to dry food.

  • Healthy food is good

    By on

    I purchased this food originally because it was recommended for my Golden that had Cushing's Disease. We tried it too late and lost her. However, we also have a Golden puppy that we give it to now. She LOVES it and licks her bowl clean EVERY NIGHT! The only reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 is because it's very pricey! I sprinkle a little of this on her regular Blue Buffalo dry food and create a little gravy. That way it lasts longer. But like I said, she's loving it! HIGHLY recommend!

  • Expensive, but great!

    By on

    My dog is unbelievably skittish and barks at everyone and everything--especially when he's on a leash. We have tried a number of different treats and tricks to help distract him and keep him from barking. The owner of his daycare suggested these little nuggets after we tried peanut butter spoons, cheese spoons, and even disgusting dried pig hearts. Nothing was working until we found these. While it's not their intended use, it has gotten us through the last month.

  • 3 dogs love

    By on

    My 3 babies just love them. I sprinkle over their dry grain free food, and they gobble it up. Not so much if the primal isn't on their food.

  • Happy with Primal!

    By on

    I tried this product after reading people online raving about how well their pets were doing eating it. My dog has colitis & only eats prescription food, or he gets sick. As soon as the box came from Chewy, he was so excited. I got the chicken & added water to one nugget. He has never been so enthused about a food. We have been going slowly in the past 2 weeks from 1 to 1/12 to 2 nuggets. No digestive upset at all. We are still feeding his prescription food but less. It is easy & clean to feed, poops are small & he is so happy! He is a little...only 13 lbs. but we tell him it is his "wolf" food. Lol

  • Perfect kibble additive to incorporate raw food

    By on

    Emma loves Primal nuggets added to her kibble! She is on a grain-free diet but I like to incorporate raw food into her diet so I crumble primal over her kibble, she loves it. It gives her the nutrients she needs in a way that I can afford. A pure raw food diet for a large breed puppy can be expensive so this is a perfect alternative!

  • The Ultimate Dog Food

    By on

    Primal has been my favorite dog food since I read the ingredients and tried it out on my pups. The ingredients are mostly organic, sourced responsibly, and full of nutrients. Our dogs love the flavors and the vet is happy with how lean and healthy it keeps them. Only Primal for our pups!

  • Hard and dried out

    By on

    This was the only food my dog Scoob would eat. The last bag was dried out and hard. Chewy replaced the bag with another bag. That bag the pieces were hard also. I don't know why it has changed. He won't touch it.
