  • Because of the importance of moisture in a raw diet, Primal recommends 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.

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.

  • 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.

  • Give some! Even if it's just a little bit......

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    An incredible utilization of bones & organs, no recalls, great aroma. Has my trust over the other "often contaminated" competitor. I crumble two bars daily over their kibble and chopped broccoli (I can't afford any more than that). The beef & lamb bars are hard, the duck very crumbly (but it's all good, doesn't reflect its quality). Arthritic hands? Use a small cheese grate to break it down before serving or soaking. My two 80 lb pit bulls are running around strong after TPLO's, have that extra coat sheen and beautiful perfect stools. No upset GI tracts. If you do feed this exclusively, add other healthy ingredients so meal time is fun and not just a bowl of pasty sludge!

    By far the best food my dog loves. I have tried numerous other freeze dried dog foods but he is not interested. Primal did the trick.

  • my dogs extra treat

    By on

    My Maltese eats only Wellness Simple Small Breed kibble. I sprinkle a little crumbled lamb formula Primal Nuggets over her kibble and it adds a good, healthy variety to her meal. She loves it. One bag last for months and Chewy is the only place I can find the small 14oz. bag. Also, Chewy is the ONLY place in the country where I can find Wellness Simple, small breed! AND we travel a lot, so I never have to even look for food, it is sent to wherever we are.

  • Our Shepherds LOVE These

    By on

    These primal nuggets are a great option when it comes to adding more raw food to your beloved dog's diet. Lamb is a favorite at our house and these weren't any different, as in our German Shepherds LOVED these. We added these to our pups favorite Lamb dry kibble and rehydrated them with water. I will admit, it took quite a bit of effort to meal prep for breakfast and dinner. However, knowing that our fur babies are getting the optimal nutrition we can provide for them is well worth it. I used a fork and bowl to break up the nuggets. Then the mixture would get to a point that I could mush it all together. Adding this into our dog's kibble made meal time all together more exciting!

They didn't leave a morsel after each meal. The flavor is loved at our home and I do think it's each pup's personal preference. I would recommend these to anyone looking for an affordable way to add raw food into their dog's diet. The transition of adding these to their diet was easy and did not corrupt their bowels at all. Everything was normal and they actually used the bathroom more frequently in a better way. I never felt that they were clearing everything appropriately before adding these to their diet. This is something we monitor in our home specifically when adding new foods to our dog's diets, I recommend you do too! … more

  • Lamb is her favorite flavor.

    By on

    I break up a nugget in a small covered glass bowl then add water to cover the broken nugget. By morning, it's a perfect consistency. My pup loves it wet with a slight gravy like run off. She is 4.5 lbs and can eat 2 nuggets/day, split between 3 meals. However, I feed her one nugget/ day split twice then supplement a grain free dry kibble 3x. She is a growing puppy.

    My dog is a very picky eater, wanted something better for her and read about Primal Raw and thought we give it a try, scared my dog wouldn't like it but she does! Hope she continues to, it's much healthier :)

  • My puppy loves it

    By on

    My ex-fussy 10-month old puppy loves this. As long as I don't order beef, which she seems to hate, she finally is enjoying her meals. The frozen form of Primal was rejected, so I'm hopeful that the freeze-dried continues to be loved. Expensive but healthy and wonderful that she will eat it.

  • 1 out of 2 dogs approve

    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.

  • helps with dog need for protein

    By on

    My dog was eating his poop It was recommended I sprinkle some Primal on his food as his food may not contain enough protein to satisfy him. I use half a cube its enough to stop his bad eating
