Questions & Answers

Is the primal freeze dried formula all I need to give my Yorkie to keep her healthy, or do I need to add anything with this food? Thanks
Answer by ChewyDec 16, 2020
This recipe is a complete and balanced meal and can be fed on its own.

How many nuggets are in the 5.5 oz and 14oz bags?
Answer by ChewyJul 27, 2018
There are typically 3-4 freeze-dried nuggets per ounce, so on average there will be: 5.5 oz bag = approximately 16-22 nuggets per bag 14 oz bag = approximately 42-56 nuggets per bag Keep in mind that they sell by package weight, not by nuggets. Due to variations in protein density and product shape, there may be differences in actual nugget count from bag to bag.

Is heating the moisented nuggets in microwave (30-40 secs) recommended ?
Answer by ChewySep 11, 2019
It is not recommended to microwave raw food and treats, as the cooking process can destroy many important nutrients.

Answer by ChewyMay 06, 2019

My picky parson Russell terrier loves it

My Parson Russell terrier loves this! I do a lot of research on all of the food he ingests and what he likes. (and what is best for him). This was a fit. We tried it. He loves! I’m happy. Although the price is expensive for the quantity, I am fortunate enough to be able to afford it right now and I hope in the future they can make BIG, more affordable bags. Or at least BIG bags in general. Wouldn’t want the price to drop and effect the quality. This is great quality.

High quality and convenient

My yorkie really likes Primal duck flavor nuggets. I break a nugget in half and add enough water to rehydrate but not make it too soupy. I have also previously purchased Primal’s goat milk to use instead of water. My dog enjoys that too. I like the idea of raw diet but it’s not always convenient or practical. I take my dog on the road with me quite often and these nuggets are so easy and convenient to travel with.

Great product with duck but expensive

It is hard to find "cooling" yin constitution dog food, and this fits the bill. It is just very expensive.

Very picky dog

We have dried every dog food around and my shih tzu turns his nose up at all of them and practically starves himself. Along came these Duck Nuggets and Theo the picky dog gobbles these right up. 6 years of throwing out unused food, no more! YAY

Good stuff

I buy the nuggets often and add one to my dog’s food to encourage him to eat. I crumble it over his dry food. I also take them when traveling because he doesn’t always want to eat on the road. He does like the nuggets so I know he gets some nourishment. I don’t add water because he won’t eat it if it’s wet but always have fresh water available. Good product.

Dog loved it but too expensive

My dog loved the duck flavor but the same exact bag (Primal Duck 14 oz) is available for 15% less at our local health food store. It is more convenient to order and have it delivered from Chewy but not cost-effective.

Love the Primal freeze dried nuggets. Recently ordered the Duck. There are hardly any nuggets in the bag. I am used to seeing where some of the nuggets have flaked off and you have powder in the bottom of the bag. With the duck, most of the nuggets had been reduced to powder - hardly any that were still full sized. I opened the bag on July 26th for my dog's evening meal and today, Aug 3, there are only a few left. He only gets 5 nuggets a day, so was expecting the bag to last longer - like the other bags do. Guess I will have to call primal and ask how much each nugget should weigh so I can get some use of the powder in the bottom of the bag. Disappointed and probably won't purchase this protein again.

Best food option for yorkie/poodle!!

Not sure where to begin but this made my high energy dog even more energetic lol. I exclusively feed him primal and rotate the proteins regularly so he isn’t bored and so that he will eat another flavor in case his favorites are out of stock. Yorkies have sensitivities to some foods and I found he has no reaction at all with the duck!!
