  • 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.

    Great for cats with allergies

    By on

    I adopted an obese older kitty with allergies. My vet recommended Primal and it worked very well for her allergies. In addition, she lost weight and her waddle and turned into a beautiful sleek kitty. We tried both the frozen raw and the freeze dried raw. The frozen raw was a little too time consuming to prepare, so we chose the freeze dried. Kitty loves it!

    thought great but realize terrible

    By on

    From Holistic Vet suggestion, I switched my cat from a prescription food to Raw food and found Primal.The studies showed, there were some problems with the formula in the past but all seems good since I believe 2018. For six months my cat loved the food, but I started to notice some of the bags had dryer cubes then other bags.Recently my cat started vomiting 1 hour after feeding. After a few hours he was fine. I immediately switched him back to his old food for a couple of weeks. Then I to slowly reintroduce him to Primal (1/2 the normal amount). We Had three meals with no side effects. After the 4th meal, again, one hour later, he started vomiting. I am sure there is something in this food causing From Holistic Vet suggestion, I switched my cat from a prescription food to Raw food and found Primal.The studies showed, there were some problems with the formula in the past but all seems good since I believe 2018.

    Was still hard in the center/cat didn't like.

    By on

    I made the cubes as directed but after 5 minutes it was still hard in the center. I waited longer with the hard piece covered up and it was finally ready to serve. After all of the waiting my cats didn't like it.

    Significant improvement in cat with GI issues

    By on

    After I got my cat, she developed constipation and anal gland issues to the point of needing them removed. Switching her to wet food and having her anal glands removed helped, but she still had serious constipation, diminished appetite, was losing weight, and needed quite a bit of laxative with her meals. We’re about two years into this journey now and I recently discovered this food. She’s been on Primal two months, and already she needs much less laxative, has gained weight, enjoys eating/gets excited at mealtimes, and appears happier, more loving, and more herself. I crush up the nuggets, add warm water, and crush up some dry bits on top. She also asks for treats (ie, pieces of nugget) while After I got my cat, she developed constipation and anal gland issues to the point of needing them removed.

    My babies love this

    By on

    We started off with the chicken/salmon formula, but they didn't even come close to loving it as much as they love the pork. I'm so glad I was offered a sample nugget at the Primal booth at CatCon. I've been ordering it from Chewy ever since.

    Great Raw Diet Food

    By on

    Primal is for a raw diet...I found this in a cool pet food store & immediately bought the frozen form. Sadly, I don’t live near that cool pet food store. I did find the freeze dried version at Chewy.com & LOVE the convenience of ordering on line. A raw diet is so good for pets & I am so pleased with Primal brand.

    Not good when nuggets are to hard!

    By on

    My cat really likes this one the best but occasionally the nuggets are hard as a rock and I cannot crumble it with my arthritic hands. When they are soft enough to crumble, so I can rehydrate, they are a 5 star. I have had to return several bags because of this.

    Why is product so hard?

    By on

    I alternate between ordering turkey and pork flavor for my elderly cat that has IBS. Raw food along with probiotics and mineral oil has been the only regimen that has kept her issues under control. The turkey product is normally pliable enough to easily crumble into her bowl, but, the pork product is very hard and difficult to crumble. I thought this was an issue with the previous supplier I was ordering from, but, this order I received from Chewy was the same. I'm thinking it's an issue with the manufacturer? I wish there was a way to get a more pliable pork product since I'm somewhat limited in flavors she can eat. She is allergic to fish.
