Questions & Answers

27 Customer Questions

What does the “warm” symbol on the bag mean?
Answer by ChewyJun 25, 2019
Primal's holistic veterinary community asked that they provide a food energetics guide on their packaging. Their food energetics information is based on Chinese theory medicine. According to Chinese medicine, each food plays a role in warming or cooling the body during digestion. For those consumers who subscribe to the theory of protein temperatures, they provide an indication of hot (H), warming (W), neutral (N), and cooling (C) proteins on their packaging.

How much Taurine is in your cat food products? In addition, is it okay for kittens?
Answer by ChewyMar 19, 2018
Taurine 0.65% min. For kittens and pregnant or lactating females: Divide total daily feeding portion into 3-4 meals.

Are there any ingredients from China ?
Answer by ChewyNov 07, 2019
Primal products are made in the United States. They source their lamb and venison from New Zealand, rabbit from France, and a few of their supplement-ingredients are sourced from Iceland, Northern Europe, and Japan. Everything else is sourced in the USA and all ingredients are USDA edible-grade.

What is the Phosphorus content DMA ... thanks!
Answer by ChewyOct 10, 2018
This variety contains 1.59% Phosphorus on a dry matter basis.

My cats don't prefer this

Saw this on TikTok and gave it a try. My 2 cats unfortunately do not like it as much as other food I give them, and it was surprising because one of my cats usually eats everything! They try to eat it but there's always leftovers the past 3 times I've given this to them. I'm going to give the rest to my sister, maybe her cats will like them.

New Ingredients Are Terrible

My cats used to love this, but the company updated the ingredients recently and now they won't go near it. The food has a strange metallic smell when you open the bag. I even tried a little myself and definitely understand where they're coming from. If you can get your hands on an old bag of these, it's totally worth it. Otherwise, I'd stay away. I may try my luck ordering one more time in case they still have old bags left and we get lucky.

our new favorite!

i’ve been trying a few different wet foods and freeze dried raw foods trying to find something that wasn’t draining all of my money, would be good for my baby & also keep her full longer and i think this is the one we’re gonna stick with. super easy to make at meal times and measure, and my cat took to it right away after eating a different brand of freeze dried raw. she loves this food, it’s not too expensive and i’m definitely gonna stick with it and try more flavors :3

Ordered in Error

I ordered cat food accidentally, BUT my favorite neighborhood cat had just given birth so I fed to her. She loved it.

Great for topper

My cats really didn't like the food as a meal with the nuggets re hydrated. They did, however, love it as a crumbled topper on top of their wet food. Will definitely keep purchasing

wish my cats liked it

This was recommended to me by my vet. Unfortunately neither of my cats will go near it. I read other reviewers said that the ingredients had changed. Disappointing. I tried both the turkey and chicken, both flopped.

Primal Grain-Free Raw Freeze-Dried cat food

Tried this freeze-dried raw cat food for my kitties. None would go near it. I thought I would get a different raw freeze dried to keep as a backup for the Nulo, but turns out Nulo is the only raw freeze-dried food they'll eat.

Ingridients changed, weird smell

I auto shipped Primal nuggets for years and my cats have been eating these nuggets for a long time but had to remove it from my autoship. Cats won't touch the newest batch. It smells weird. Called Chewy's and they said that it appears ingredients have changed. I cannot recommend it any longer as my cat's wont touch it, and it smells stale. Thank you chewy for the refund but I don't know if I would try this product again I would love to know the reason for the change.

Did not like

I purchased this as it is one of the few foods that does not carry pea’s in it and this food was highly recommend but my MC will not touch it, I tried water & goats milk and they turn away.

Cats would eat it

The stuff looks awful to me and my cats had no interest either.
