Questions & Answers

28 Customer Questions

How long do you have to soak it and then do you drain the water?

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.

How many nuggets in a bag?
Answer by ChewyOct 10, 2022
There are typically 3-4 freeze-dried nuggets per ounce, so on average there will be approximately 16-22 nuggets in the 5.5 ounce bag and approximately 42-56 nuggets in the 14 ounce bag.

How are these stored?
Answer by ChewyNov 05, 2020
Freeze-dried food is shelf-stable and should be kept in a cool, dry place. Once rehydrated, keep refrigerated and feed within 5 days for optimum freshness.

The new owner has changed the formula

Previously the feeding instructions for my chihuahua were 4 - 7 nuggets per day. Now it’s 7 - 12.

Dog loves it!

We recently received a sample and the dog went crazy for it. He gets so some every morning and I is still very excited to eat breakfast. He is the most picky eater dog we have ever had.

A sick pupper

Gave my 14 year dog severe diarrhea. She only had it twice. Took about 3 days to stop after figuring out what caused it. The beef is fine.

Senior Dog LOVES this

My rescue lost some teeth so eating was uncomfortable and some of the wet food out there is gross. My dog loves this food so much and I love the lack of gross-ness. The price is high but he's so happy and I think he had grain allergies because his skin conditions have completely healed as well. Do your dogs a favor and get them this food.

Great Stuff!

We have been using Primal Freeze Dried Chicken for years now. It is not the main dog food (too expensive for my large breeds) but each dog gets a nugget or two crushed up on top of their food per meal. Even my most picky eater will eat their food with this on top. I have recommended it to many people over the years for their picky dogs and it has always been a hit.

So far so good

My finicky dog picks out the freeze dried chunks in her dog food and leaves the rest. So I thought I would try this. So far she likes it dry. I broke it up and topped her food with it and she ate everything in her bowl. Then I tried mixing it with water and pouring it over her food and now she turns up her nose at it, lol. So dry topping it is.
