Questions & Answers

29 Customer Questions

I have 2 extremely picky eaters. I got your freeze-dried Turkey & Liver treats which they love and your sardine nuggets but once water was added both girls rejected food. I've read freeze dried foods can be served w/out water provided water is available. Does that apply to your brand also?
Answer by ChewyJun 17, 2021
While Primal does recommend rehydrating whenever possible, due to the importance of moisture for optimum nutrition absorption, it is OK to feed dry, as-is. Just be sure your pet has enough access to fresh clean water during the day. If you choose to rehydrate per the recommendation, you can choose to use water or Primal's raw goat milk to add moisture to your pet’s freeze-dried meals.

What is the maximum fat % when it’s rehydrated?
Answer by ChewyApr 20, 2019
The recipes are formulated to target the minimum fat content that is provided in the Guaranteed Analysis, any deviation from this as-fed percentage would be minimal. Please speak with your veterinarian to ensure this value is low enough to be a suitable diet for your pet.

About how many nuggets per bag? Trying to figure out how long one bag will last us.
Answer by ChewyMay 07, 2020
The 5.5 ounce bag contains approximately 22 nuggets and the 14 ounce bag contains approximately 56 nuggets.

Can you rehydrate in advance?
Answer by ChewyOct 09, 2018
Thawed raw food will remain fresh in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Rancid Product x2

Loved this product. For picky eaters it’s a god send. BUT this is the second time I have purchased this food and it was bad. Once from Local Pets store in our hometown and now from Chewy. Normally a fresh smell with a little fishiness, the spoiled bags smell moldy and rancid. The dogs normally love it but would not touch it. Hit and miss. Aggravating.

Not in good smell

I like Primal and Chewy. However, this freeze-dried food smell really bad. It smells like nuts in a bag for 10 years. Also, my dog hates it, usually, he likes all the Primal freeze-dried food. I would like to get it returned or refund if possible. Chewy, I still love you.

Very strange/bad quality

This is not my first bag of Primal freeze-dried food, but the worst and the most strange one. The patties are solid as rocks, can’t be break down and don’t absorb water neither. It very clear that there is something WRONG and I will not give it to my dog.

Sardines for Suki!

My Suki LOVES sardines, she recently started eating Primal Nuggets chicken flavor but after a short while didn't seem quite as enthusiastic. So I've been adding the sardine & turkey flavor and she's one happy camper. I suspect she has a little cat in her, she does love anything fishy...

Primal, Turkey and Sardine raw diet

Bella loves this product. It was recommended by my vet since my dog is a fussy eater. We put it on top of some chicken that Bella will eat.

great as topper

I use these as a topper on hard food. My 11 year old rescue Rottweiler has become a bit demanding in her old age and prefers something with a little more flavor. I crumble 1/2 of one freeze dried rectangular little bar on her cup of food-once in the morning and once at night. Add warm water, stir until it makes a nice gravy and she gobbles it up. It’s just stinky enough to be really tasty I guess. I love that it’s not messy. It’s a no brainer for us! She is a healthy weight of 85 lbs. (arthritis issues) I also give her Cosequin (also from Chewy) which we can not live without. It has made a huge difference in her ability to navigate the stairs in our condo.

Great product

I've been wanting to try a freeze dried raw product for our two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. Our boy is prone to allergies. The freeze dried option does not require us to clear out space in our freezer to store. It is also more convenient for travel. Raw seems healthier and closer to a traditional canine diet. Both our dogs love it and ate it without hesitation from Day 1. No stool issues. I wish it was not as pricey, but happy that we are able to do the convenient autoship option. Thanks, chewy!

Great for picky eaters

Just switched to Primal for my Morkie puppy. She's a picky eater but she loves these, especially when rehydrated with goats milk. They're easy to break apart with a fork. Only downside is they need to rehydrate properly, so I make 2 days worth at a time and keep it in the fridge.
