Questions & Answers

12 Customer Questions

It says the main ingredients are pork hearts, bones and livers. Is there any other muscle meat in this product, like pork muscle?
Answer by ChewyNov 19, 2020
The heart is actually muscle meat. It is made up of a type of striated muscle tissue called cardiac muscle. By design, Primal products contain no more than 10% organ meat. They use the heart as a primary source of muscle meat in many of their formulas because heart contains a higher nutrient value than other muscle meats and is the most environmentally responsible option.

it says on the package to keep in the fridge for freshness 3-5 days. my can't won't be able to eat the whole bag in that many days because I wanna rotate her food flavors ? can I keep it locked in a glass jar, or a plastic container ? and then how long can it stay in the fridge ?
Answer by ChewyMar 17, 2018
Once it is re-hydrated it can only be stored in the refrigerator for 3-5 days. If it is not re-hydrated, you can store it in a cool, dry place. When using on a rotational diet, it is recommended to make in small batches so that you may use it as needed.

Is the pork nitrate free?
Answer by ChewyJul 10, 2018
The Pork is nitrate free. All Primal Pet Foods products are produced using the highest quality ingredients, including 100% antibiotic- and steroid-free USDA edible-grade meats, poultry, and game in addition to certified organic produce and unrefined vitamins and minerals.

How many calories in each Pork formula nugget? Thanks.
Answer by ChewyMar 11, 2019
There are 147 calories per ounce. An ounce is approximately 3½ nuggets.

2 cats love it

i have a cat with digestive issues. i now feed her American Journey duck limited ingredients and primal pork. unfortunately she only will eat it dry, but i think its probably keeping her teeth clean because i give it in big chunks (Not whole-maybe 8 pieces per bar) i also give vetriscience probiotic. her previous liquid diarrhea has all but disappeared. her littermate also likes dry primal pork. i give it as a treat. Cons: expensive, cats need to drink water if its given dry-mine do, hard to break up the bars with arthritic hands.

It's just so-so

My cats have never like freeze-dried food. I bought this thinking I could perhaps interest the ones who eat only Primal frozen raw pork, just to simplify my life, but they turned up their noses at it. I am feeding it in rotation to my inflammatory bowel baby now, who eats it ok with some Purina Fortiflora sprinkled over it after crushing it, putting in a couple of tablespoons of water, and mircrowaving 7 seconds, and stirring. No simple at all.

Keep trying

I've read many reviews saying these nuggets are hard or they take too long to prepare or whatever. I started using raw food for my cats in this form after they were already used to dry food. So when I tried mixing with water, it seemed the flavor may have not been the same as when the nuggets are dry. My cats love canned cat food but I only give them about 1/3 of a small can at their night feeding. their main feeding is in the morning and they each get 3 bricks that I break apart into about 6 pieces. They LOVE it! If I mix with water, they turn their nose up at it! So, I feed it to them dry and have plenty of water nearby. This has been the best for my sensitive stomach cat. He cannot eat anything with chicken and doesn't like duck but goes for the pork and the turkey flavors just fine. He isn't thrilled with the beef and salmon but will eat it eventually.

Ok but not great

Pork is my cat's favorite so I thought this might be a good alternative to his regular food. Cat won't go near it -- should have checked the ingredient list first, because it has a lot of random plant matter (and things like clay?? kelp?? Kale, cilantro, & ginger??) and other spices and seeds that probably aren't at all good for cats, who are carnivores! This entire bag's going in the trash can, unfortunately, I'm wary of even sending it to the shelter given what's actually in it.

My boys love it

I’ve been trying to add raw for a few years and these have been great for some variety in their diet. Always gobbled up!

Our 4 didn’t like

We have 4 younger cats. I tried 3 times with different amounts of water & even tried dry. They liked how it smelled. Even seemed excited but one taste was all they would do. They are hand raised feral cats. We are waiting a bit before we try the duck, perhaps they just don’t like pork.

My kitty loves several flavors

My kitty loves the pork, venison, chicken/salmon, rabbit, & turkey.

Nuggets like Rocks

These pork nuggets were so hard I had to use a metal meat tenderizer to break them down. Even then my cat wouldn't touch the rehydrated product, although I even tried mixing it with wet food that she likes. The duck flavor seemed fine and easy to work with.

Finally a healthy cat food that my very finicky cats will eat!

My two cats seem to find the Primal pork much less objectionable than the Primal rabbit which they only very occasionally eat. They will also eat the Primal venison, but it's the pork they more consistently will eat. I've also noticed that since they've been eating the Primal brand, they seem to have more energy and their coats are shinier and more lustrous!

Awesome food for finicky cats

My cats love the pork and rabbit. I was told that cats like strong flavored food. They are 6 and never been sock on the healthy nuggets.
