Great but pricey

After years of living abroad and not being able to find this brand there, we got this little bag of Primal for our baby when we were back. She LOVES it! She's almost 11 years old. She used to love it 7 years ago in any flavor and so does it now at least the turkey flavor; we'll try others afterwards. I don't remember how much water I added before, but be aware that this food would constipate them if you don't add enough liquid. At 1 pm she's anxious for this particular meal, because of the Primal. At another times of the day we feed her dry food from a great brand as well. But the Primal at 1 pm is no doubt the most awaited. Since it's on the expensive side, I just feed her a quarter of a nugget and add a little of canned fish for cats. For that 1/4 nugget I add 2 Tablespoons of water. Anything less would constipate her. This is the kind of food that she never gets bored of. She eats with pleasure, has a great weight, her fur shines, she remains pretty agile, self confident and happy. I've no doubt food has something to do with all that. NOTE: I would give it 5 stars if not were for the price. It's just too high. She would need 7 nuggets daily if this were her only type of meal! Bankrupt immediately haha

the cats hate it

Maybe I got the wrong flavor but my cat won’t eat it. He wouldn’t even sniff it after the 1st day of realizing what it was. I figured I could feed it to the strays since it’s super healthy food but even they won’t eat it! Only animal I found that likes it was my pup who ate the old food I put out for the strays before I could clean it up. I’ve heard great things about this food but if the stray cats won’t even eat it….idk about it

our cats loves Primal!

We have tried other foods like this (e.g. Stella & Chewy) but our cat continues to love Primal. She prefers the pork most of the time but when she’s being finicky, she really enjoys the turkey. I’ve found that I have to have a few options for her all of the time because she gets burned out on flavors. One thing I like about the turkey flavor is that it’s softer than the pork and super easy to break up.

This is not the same as usual

my cat normally like these nuggets - but the most recent batch that arrived have a chemical smell and seem like they have either gone off or were sitting in a warehouse filled with chemicals or something. cat is not touching it. very disappointing - especially considering all of my chewy purchases.

About half my cats and foster cats will eat the the turkey if I break it up and serve it dry. When I rehydrate it none of them will touch it. The cats who will eat it dry really love it. I think it is a good product but with cats you never really know till you try it.

Had High Hopes but Disappointed

My two kittens have been on Stella & Chewy freeze dried food for some time now with no problem eating it, I thought for sure they would like this brand Primal Nuggets as well. No, not at all. They would sniff and walk away. I tried different ways to get them to try by burying under their regular wet food, by soaking them in water or chicken broth, nothing worked. In fact they ran away from me this morning when I was trying to serve them this food. I gave up finally after three weeks of trying.Very disappointed. It's a big bag, still mostly full, I will try to return it. My first time ever returning anything to Chewy.

My cat loves these. I break one up, each day, and sprinkle on top of her wet food through out the day.

Dehydrated product not great

The fresh (frozen) version of these seem to have a much better texture and consistency. Freeze drying makes shipping easy, but I'll drive to the local store to pick up the frozen stuff in the future.

Both my cats love this food!!

I am transitioning my cats to a freeze dried raw food diet and this has been the favorite so far! They both go nuts for it!! They’ll eat it dry or rehydrated. I give them dry pieces as treats then rehydrate it for meals with water or bone broth. We have already noticed a difference in the softness and shine of their coats. Primal is a good brand offering very high quality foods so I am glad my kitties enjoy it! We’re excited to try other flavors!
