How many nuggets come in each bag?
Answer by ChewyJul 26, 2019
The 5.5 oz bag contains approximately 18 nuggets and the 14 oz bag contains approximately 46 nuggets.

Is it okay to add Freeze dried nuggets to my dog's kibble? Some say not to serve raw and kibble within 5 hours of each other? I am looking for a healthy way to add flavor to the bowl of kibble. Thank you!
Answer by ChewyDec 13, 2017
This food is perfect to be used as a topper with kibble.

Can you switch between the different kinds of Primal freeze dried nuggets without transitioning? For example, give lamb nuggets for breakfast, chicken nuggets for dinner
Answer by ChewyFeb 15, 2018
Typically, once a pet has effectively transitioned to a Primal raw food diet, most pets can rotate between all Primal raw formulas without issue.

My dog LOVES this

My lab has always been a reluctant eater. I’d add eggs, meats; still she’d ignore her food. I decided to take a more natural, animal-style approach and go raw. Granted, I can’t afford to feed her all raw based on her weight and feeding guidelines, so I top her Blue Basics kibble with 2-3 crumbled and watered Primal nuggets. Now she asks to be fed, sometimes more than her standard 2x a day. Her stool has improved greatly and she even seems more cheerful. I HIGHLY recommend this line of food for people who want to feed or supplement their dogs with raw food but don’t know where to start. This is easy to store and prepare, and autoship is super convenient.

I love them

Tessa doe love her freeze dried foods? This one comes in kibble size and bricks! I break the bricks over her kibble. The kibble size can be used as training or treats. I also buy another freeze dried food for her. I wish it were a little more reasonably priced. Tessa is small so I buy it for her!

Nutritious and tasty

Our pit bull doggie loves these lamb nuggets for breakfast and lunch. He gobbles them down quickly and usually once more.

Best one yet!

This is the best flavor of the Freeze Dried by Primal.. at least in my dog's eyes. He's been waiting for his food now, since he's a picky eater.

Super Easy and Milo Loves Them

My dog is absolutely obsessed. I was really hesitant about picking out a raw food for my dog, but he absolutely loves his food. The freeze-dried is easy to prep and store. Amazing. It is a bit pricey if you're buying it as a whole balanced meal. But as a food topper it's a bit more manageable.

Great for picky pups

My maltipoo is very picky and often shuns her food, but she tried Primal Nuggets and now consistently eats her food. I love not opening and storing canned food anymore. Meal prep for my pup just got a lot less stressful!

My dogs can't hardly wait for me to give them breakfast and dinner. They absolutely love this food. Chicken as well. I combine it with American Journey as a generous topper. Sometimes only the generous topper is eaten! I have fed fresh before but this is so much more convenient. I highly recommend Primal.
