  • 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 cats 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 Cats: Divide total daily feeding portion into 2 meals.

  • Kittens and pregnant or lactating females: Divide total daily feeding portion into 3-4 meals.

    My cat did not eat in one sitting using dry kibble. I switched him to this stuff and he devours it in one sitting. He wasn't eating enough and now I have to scale back on his intake!! We've tried the Turkey Formula, Chicken & Salmon Formula, and now we're on the Pork Formula. The Turkey and Chick/Salmon nuggets were very easy to break apart and add water. He enjoyed the Turkey but he LOVED the Chicken & Salmon. The Pork formula was so dry it took extra effort to break apart and re-hydrate. My cat was not happy with the extra minutes of waiting. Neither was I!! So this is our new go-to bag. It lasted a week. Most of these do.

    Margo gives this food a 10/10

    By on

    This is all my cat, Margo, will eat. I feel good about giving it to her, because Primal is quality brand. I think it’s pricey, but that’s the only thing I’m not that fond of.

    Best for IBD/IBS cats with digestive issues!

    By on

    I literally have tried every kind of wet food on the market for my Stella. She cannot tolerate chicken, turkey, or duck. Also, because she is prone to UTIs, I can't feed her any type of fish. As if that isn't limited enough in terms of variety of proteins, Stella also cannot eat anything with guar gum, agar agar, carrageen, etc etc. She lost all the fur on her belly and ears from scratching constantly, had vomiting and diarrhea, and lost almost 3 pounds (she's normally 9lbs healthy). After no luck with thousands of dollars in vet bills to find no other cause for her poor health, we went full on LID. She was on Instinct LID Rabbit canned for about 9 months and grew bored and refused to eat it I literally have tried every kind of wet food on the market for my Stella.

After no luck with thousands of dollars in vet bills to find no other cause for her poor health, we went full on LID. She was on Instinct LID Rabbit canned for about 9 months and grew bored and refused to eat it any longer. Try looking for ANY brands that don't contain poultry or fish or additives. The list is practically non-existent! One day, I just bought a bag of Primal Pork and, literally, this food saved my cat's life. We have had great success with Pork, Rabbit, and the Beef Liver treats. Tip for faster food prep: Get a stainless steel cheese grater! If you run the nuggets slowly down the large side of the cheese grater, it produces perfect shredded bits that are far easier to reconstitute - and it's SO much easier on your hands than trying to shred it yourself. Additionally, you can use the smaller sized finely grated side to use with the regular nuggets but especially the Beef Liver treats (which are ultra hard). This will result in a very fine powder that you can sprinkle on your cat's food as a topper. Stella loves the smell of the Beef Liver treats so I finely grate one over the rehydrated regular nuggets. Also, if your cat has poor teeth or is otherwise unable to chew through these by hand-shredding, a cheese grater is perfect for making the food as chunky or pate-style as you like. My Stella drinks tons of water with food and throughout the day, BUT if she gets picky I do feed this to her dry and very finely grated. She drinks water along with it so please make sure you keep your cat well hydrated at meal time if serving this straight from the bag. When I've had to do it in dry form (which I contacted Primal to confirm is healthy and safe), Stella simply licks the grated powder clean out of the bowl. Of course, make sure to have a human-grade stainless steel cheese grater that is just for use for your cat's food, and always thoroughly wash after each use with hot soap and water. I wish Primal would make a straight Beef version without the Salmon for cats prone to UTIs. But, this honestly is the best food out there for kitties with IBD/IBS or digestive issues. Spent thousands on vets and food to figure it out over the course of a year and a half. Lifesaver! … more

    Thumbs up!

    Primal freeze dried Nuggets are great! My kitty likes all the flavors, but her favorites are the fishy ones - Beef & Salmon and Chicken & Salmon. And I feel like she's getting better nutrition with Primal Nuggets.

    My cat loves it!

    By on

    My cat suffered from allergies for years. Finally, we had a saliva test done showing a few foods she could eat. Her allergies are so much better since eating the pork nuggets. I put the whole bag in a blender and measure out the amount for each serving. So much easier than rehydrating for each meal.

    No one would eat it

    Not one of my six would eat this. I had both hoped because they enjoy ham baby food every now and then. The smell is noxious too

    6 Months and Counting

    By on

    We have been ordering this for over 6 months now and our cats still love it. We hit some issues as some batches are very soft and easy to work with and others are so tough it hurts your hands to break them up. Our solution was an electric coffee grinder. We simply break the pellet in to a couple manageable pieces and let the grinder do the rest. It re hydrates immediately this way and has the consistency of a pate type food. We then add in a couple of the Stella and Chewys pellets for some texture. One of our cats is allergic to all birds and poultry, and we have been told fish contains some high toxins for cats so this plus the rabbit from Stella has been our wonderful solution to all We have been ordering this for over 6 months now and our cats still love it.

    Cats smell open bag, then, beg and meow for it

    By on

    Mine enjoy the chicken & salmon, turkey and venison as well. I'd say pork variety is #2 to chicken & salmon, then, the other 2. Waiting for rabbit to be available for them to try that. Gave 4/5 stars because it does take a little bit of time to prepare and even the large bag runs out quickly when you have more than 1 eating it daily.

    My cat did not like the pork flavor.

    By on

    I have tried Primal chicken & salmon formula for my 16yrs old cat, and she loved it. I decided to try a different flavor, which was Pork, and she hated it. The texture of the formula was different from chicken & salmon, and there was a distinct smell in the pork formula. I would recommend chicken & salmon flavor but not pork.
