Key Benefits

  • They use wholesome fresh turkey that's raised without antibiotics, steroids or added hormones. It provides superior levels of amino and essential fatty acids while finely ground, fresh turkey bones supply optimum levels of calcium. Sardine oil is a good source of essential Omega-3 fatty acids which help to maintain healthy skin and coat.

  • Organic produce supplies food-derived vitamins A, B-complex, C and D while organic, unrefined nutritional supplements help with digestion and circulation. Organic coconut oil supplies short and medium chain saturated fatty acids, which mimic the natural bacteria found in the digestive tract, further aiding in digestion.
  • Primal Nuggets allow you to give your furry feline friend all the benefits of a raw diet in a convenient freeze-dried form. The variety of ingredients mimics what the diet of animals in the wild are in a superior bio-available composition. It's grain and gluten-free, and doesn't contain any corn, wheat, or soy, making it great for cat's with sensitivities.

Feeding Instructions

Because of the importance of moisture in a raw diet, we recommend rehydrating Freeze - Dried Formula for optimum nutrition absorption. To rehydrate, add 1 tablespoon of water for every nugget or 1/4 cup of water for 4 nuggets. For best rehydrating results, break nugget into small pieces and mix thoroughly with water to force moisture into product.

Feed Adult cats the equivalent of 2 - 3% of their body weight in rehydrated food per day. Factors such as level of activity, age, health, metabolism and breed play a part in the necessary feeding quantities of all animals. Please be sure to monitor your pet's dietary needs and adjust the feeding quantities accordingly.

Transition Instructions

'Transition slowly. Allow a minimum of one week for your pet's digestive system to properly adjust. For days 1 - 3, begin by mixing Primal Formula into your pet's current food at a ratio that your pet will tolerate; you can start with as little as 1/4 Primal to 3/4 of your pet's current food. If your pet accepts the new food during days 1 - 3, feed your pet the new food only for the morning meal and their current food for the evening meal for days 4 - 7. When your pet has transitioned successfully, you can begin feeding the new food for both meals.

    If you ask me, the ingredients in this stuff border on disgusting. But then, I feel the same way about eating mice. So to each their own. My crew give this high marks. In fact, I have to keep an eye on the bowls while the nuggets are rehydrating -- which I learned after I turned around to find a bowl full of ... only water. One of the cats had seized the opportunity of my inattentiveness and snarfed the still-dry nuggets down. And, contrary to a previous review, there are instructions on the bag for rehydration. I ignore them, though. I use about twice the amount of water, with the result that the eventual pate also rests in a nice puddle of gravy.

  • Cats LOVE it

    By on

    I bought this because one of my five cats is a diabetic and insulin isn’t doing much. Researched raw diets and the freeze-dried appears to be the most convenient with the same benefits as any raw diet. 4/5 cats are loving it (I have 1 borderline neurotic cat who doesn’t deal well with change). I won’t know how it’s working for his diabetes and we haven’t completely switched to all-raw yet. I’ll update when we do.

  • So far so good!

    My almost 2 year old cat has been eating this for a week now and LOVING it! She licks her dish clean every time. I am looking forward to trying some of the other flavors with her for my next order. I especially love it because I live in a small apartment and her litter box doesnt smell anymore since switching to this food. Definitely give this food a try! Its expensive but you get what you pay for. I will probably be incorporating some wet food back into her diet just to make this stuff last longer.

    My cat is on a raw diet a homemade food but he gets bored sometimes and he likes this as an alternative squishy and wet or sometimes as crumbled sprinkles on top of his other food. I like the ingredient list I like that it's raw and it's one of the few foods that he'll eat

  • At last a food they ALL love!

    By on

    I have 5 rescued cats in the house right now, all different ages from 16 months to 12 weeks, and all from different places. I've been trying find something they all liked to eat and to get them to eat in the same room, but it's been a struggle with some of them turning their noses up, some snarfing others' food and instigating conflict. After buying an embarrassing variety of brands from Chewy, I tried Primal Nuggets in desperation, and all the cats went bananas over it. The "nuggets" are actually the size of small bricks that need to be crumbled and mixed with water. I knew something was different when the cats tried to steal the nuggets out of the dishes before I even had a chance to crumble I have 5 rescued cats in the house right now, all different ages from 16 months to 12 weeks, and all from different places.

    This is a great commercial raw food that is high in protein and low in carbs. The turkey formula bricks are very easy to crumble and I use a powdered goat's milk mixed with water to re-hydrate the food, as my cat seems to enjoy that much more than just plain water. He always cleans his dish with this flavor!

  • I love this brand, but my cats are not quite as keen

    I want my cats to eat raw, but I hate handling raw meat. I'm not a vegetarian, but I don't even cook meat at home for myself because I hate dealing with it. This food is perfect for me. It's easy to prepare and doesn't skeeve me out too much. It is expensive, but I think it's the best value of any other freeze dried raw food out there. The less expensive brands have too many veggies and not enough meat, and brands that are more expensive last only days. One bag of primal nuggets feeds my two 8-month old kittens for about 2 weeks (with some canned supplemented). I like that it has bones and organs, which cats really need.

I adopted my two kittens a month ago, and since transitioning them off of the low quality cat food they were eating in the shelter, their poops are much smaller and less smelly. They used to meow in pain while passing these big smelly BMs because their old food was so full of low-quality ingredients that their bodies couldn't use! Their coats are also noticeably way softer since I switched. Unfortunately, neither of the cats are super enthusiastic about this food and I have to add some canned/pouch wet food on top to get them to eat it all. I will continue trying other flavors until I find one that they love! … more

    My 18 yr old Ragdoll is extremely finicky with food-however with this product he finishes what is put in his bowl-one nugget (hydrated with warm water to make a pasty consistency) at a time. Bonus-no icky smell !! Highly recommend-will be reordering.
