Questions & Answers

I just got notification that Primal for CATS, rabbit, was in. I tried to order and it said Temporarily out of stock! What’s the deal??

How many nuggets do you feed for an adult cat per meal?
Answer by ChewyAug 17, 2017
Primal Pet Freeze-Dried Nuggets are packaged by weight, not by nuggets, so the number will vary. There are 42-56 nuggets found in the 14-oz. bag and 16-22 nuggets found in the 5.5-oz. bag. For adult pets over 1 year old, our suggestion is to feed your pet based on the 2-3% rule. Feed 2-3% of your pet's body weight, divided into two daily servings.

Is this safe for ferrets?
Answer by ChewyAug 29, 2019
This recipe is suitable for ferrets. Ferrets are obligate carnivores and require a diet high in meat, with very limited if any vegetable content and absolutely no grain. Ferrets can be a little work to get on raw especially if they've been eating kibble for so long. You may find you need to hand feed them, and/or supplement with some good quality salmon oil to entice them.

How many servings to a 5.5 oz bag
Answer by ChewyJul 21, 2017
This 5.5 ounce bag will contain approximately 19 nuggets and the 14 ounce will contain 49 nuggets.

No formula change per Primal's Customer Service 6-15-22

I read a few reviews here regarding a formula change so I contacted Primal's customer service via email this morning and received this reply. "I can confirm that we have not changed any of our recipes recently. Caloric data has been updated on our bags to reflect more testing and averaging of this product. The new feeding guidelines are now recipe specific to the protein in the bag instead of an average of all recipes. This means the calorie content is now a more accurate starting point when determining appropriate feeding amounts for your pet. If your pet was doing well on a measured amount that differs from the new recommendations, you should absolutely continue to feed the amount that has been working for them. Feeding guidelines are always just a starting point and every individual pet is different. You’re always welcome to also check out our feeding calculator for a more specific recommendation. "

Excellent choice for required novel diet!

Skippy has to be on a novel diet due to dx of EGC. For a few years, was on another prescription diet which stopped production during pandemic. I chose rabbit as a novel diet, and Primal rabbit as first choice. He loves it! AND? He will not eat it wet, it has to be crumbled dry. Excellent quality, pricey but any more so than the prescription diet Skippy was on. Highly recommend as an alternative to pre digest foods, and easily obtainable.

Picky eater

My cat Nala goes through different food every few months.. she gets picky and I need to change up her food. She likes rabbit so I go through 3 different types of rabbit food brands that are all freeze dried. The only thing I dont like about this rabbit is that its really hard so u have to smash it up well. Comparing this to vital essentials rabbit it comes in 2nd place. The stella and chewy brand of rabbit is 3rd place for me .

Not a Stella and Chewy's Dupe

It's a good quality product, but my cats just don't like it. I got this to replace the Stella and Chewy's Rabbit, which has been out of stock for a little while. They love S+C's, but won't touch this one. :(

Raw Freeze-dried Rabbit

The rabbit was advertised as Raw Freeze-Dried but there are way too many other ingredients mixed in. My cat use to catches mice, rabbit, squirrel, moles and birds so she eats the real deal. She loves the Raw Freeze-dried Chicken, but not so much the rabbit; however, she will not eat cooked foods either.

Primal Rabbit Formula Nuggets Grain-Free Raw Freeze-Dried Cat Food

My cats love the rabbit. This is the first time with primal. It is expensive and I will use from time to time. It was a bit hit with all three cats.

Expensive but worth it

My sphynx cat loooves this food! Yes, it’s a little pricey but worth every penny. We were feeding it to her with kibble but she would get terrible gas. We got rid of the kibble and feed her this three times a day. No more gas!

The nuggets are very easy to crumble. Perfect for using as a topper on wet food. My cat also loves the venison nugz from Primal as well.

Used to feed my cats Primal Raw, now they changed

With all the talk of formula change i did some digging to find this: Primal Pet Foods, a pet food, treat and supplement producer based in Fairfield, Calif., announced Aug. 16 it has been acquired by private investment firm Kinderhook Industries, LLC. Kinderhook currently owns Prairie Dog Pet Products, Himalayan and Holistic Hound, and plans to combine all four brands under the new name, Primal Pet Group. This explains a LOT about what we have seen change-wise and I am sad to say i will no longer be buying Primal Raw products
