Description

Primal Duck Formula Nuggets Freeze-dried Dog Food offers the convenience and benefits of a well-balanced, safe and wholesome raw-food diet without having to grind, chop, measure or mix it yourself. Only the freshest ingredients are used, including real duck that’s free of antibiotics, steroids and added hormones. Certified organic produce, certified organic minerals and unrefined vitamins are also incorporated to fortify this complete and balanced diet. The combination offers optimum levels of the amino acids, essential fatty acids, natural-occurring enzymes and necessary vitamins and minerals that are the building blocks for your pup's healthy biological functions.

Key Benefits

  • They use wholesome fresh duck that's raised without antibiotics, steroids or added hormones. It provides superior levels of amino and essential fatty acids while finely ground, fresh duck bones supply optimum levels of calcium. Cold-water salmon oil is a good source of essential Omega-3 fatty acids which help to maintain healthy skin and coat.
  • Made in the USA!
  • Organic produce supplies food-derived vitamins A, B-complex, C and D while organic, unrefined nutritional supplements help with digestion and circulation. 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.
  • Primal Nuggets allow you to give your canine friend all the benefits of a raw diet in a convenient freeze-dried form. 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.
  • Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant and taurine helps your dog maintain optimum retinal health. The nuggets are naturally preserved without the need for any synthetic preservatives.

Additional Details

Wash all work surfaces, utensils, hands and food bowls with hot, soapy water after handling freeze-dried meats and poultry. Keep freeze-dried meats and poultry separate from other foods. Keep away from children.

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

Feed Adult dogs the equivalent of 2 - 3% of their body weight in rehydrated food per day (see chart). For puppies 4 - 8 weeks old, feed 4 1/2 - 8% of their body weight. For puppies 8 weeks and older, feed 4% of their body weight. For pregnant and lactating dogs, feed 4 - 8% of their body weight.

Your dog's activity, age, metabolism and breed may affect overall feeding quantity.

Keep bag sealed until ready to use. For optimum freshness after opening, store in a cool, dry place. Be sure to seal bag completely after feeding. 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.

  • My dogs love the flavor

    By on Top 100 Contributor

    My 2 dogs love the flavor of the Primal nuggets, and it's so helpful to have raw food in this freeze-dried form rather than packing my freezer with dog food. I can't feed my dogs 100% raw food, however. These protein-heavy foods are just too rich for my dogs' digestive systems (not only Primal -- many dog foods are extremely protein-heavy these days). So I end up mixing the nuggets with water per the package instructions, then putting the hydrated nuggets over cooked rice. So far this has been working very well. My dogs love the flavor and their digestive systems are not upset by the rich food.

  • Dogs love it - but very expensive for large dogs

    By on

    Best dog food I've found, but due to size of package and cost not very practical for large breeds. Great for smaller dogs, which we have one of each. A boarder collie and a Dachshund mix.

  • 1 out of 2 dogs approve

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    Only one of my dogs approved of these the other wouldn't touch them. They are a little expensive to be buying for only one dog as well.

  • Love them, love the frozen too

    By on

    I have two rescue Cavalier Spaniels with allergies and skin issues we switched to Primal Raw Duck, and it has helped a lot. It hasn't cured them by any means, but it has been a HUGE help. We primarily use the frozen patties at home, but these are perfect for travel or sometimes for ease if we forget to get to the store in time to defrost a patty for dinner, etc. I always keep a bag in stock for those reasons. I don't love how expensive they are; I wish the freeze-dried nuggets were far cheaper than the patties given the difference in the amount needed and because they can be a pain to get the liquid into. Still, I would recommend these to anyone entering the raw food world, either wholly I have two rescue Cavalier Spaniels with allergies and skin issues we switched to Primal Raw Duck, and it has helped a lot.

    My dog loves these. I add it to his dry kibble for the best of raw but without the cost of feeding all raw to a 75 lb dog!

  • She eats better than we do

    By on

    We actually purchased this freeze-dried food for our Golden that has been very sick. She passed and I started feeding it to my 7 mon. old pup. She LOVES this Primal nuggets food. Sprinkle a little on her dry food and mix with a little water, makes a gravy. She leaves NOTHING in her bowl. HAPPY GIRL!

  • Primal nuggets are WONDRTFUL

    By on

    My 25 lb Cavachon is a very picky eater. I spoil her with lots of treats so I mix the nuggets with water and a weight control kibble and she gobbles it up. Try to mix the kibble well with the nuggets because if I don't do that, she will filter through and just eat the nuggets! Thank you Glo1 DE

  • EXCELLENT FOOD!

    By on

    My goodness! My two little guys LOVED this food and so did I because I see everything is organic and human-grade! It's a little expensive but I guess you get what you paid for. This is the BEST food I have ever tried; now I have to fit it into my budget!
