  • 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 dogs 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 dogs: Divide total daily feeding portion into 2 meals.

  • Puppies and pregnant or lactating females: Divide total daily feeding portion into 3-4 meals.

  • Bag of Crumbs

    By on

    I have bought this before and the first time I got a bag it was great no complaints at all.. But the past 2 bags that I have bought have been mashed all up like they have been sat on and this last bag was the worst. It didn’t only look like it had been sat on it had all kinds of Little Rock’s in it. I had to pick these little brown rocks out each time I feed her.. The only reason I gave this a star is because my little fur baby (Zoey) Loves The Turkey & Sardine it is one of her favorite flavors..

But I will not buy it from Chewy any more, I’m not paying over $30.00 for Crumbs and Rocks I hate that I will have to go to the local pet supply to get it, because I love the convenience of her food being delivered to me... … more

  • I like the brand and recipe

    By on

    I like the brand and recipe but I'm not in love with the brand. 1) it's pricey 2) it doesn't last long at all (only about a week for my 11lb dog 3) makes a mess with rehydrating 4) as a raw diet they don't include everything that should be there like for organ meat they only use liver, if they would use more than just liver I would like it more but they're pricey and also use cheaper foods and they use heart in a lot of recipes for muscle meat because its generally cheaper. Overall I like the brand and this recipe and so does my dog but it could be better and cheaper. If this is all you can provide for your dogs then do it, it's still a lot better than kibble and they claim to not use synthetic I like the brand and recipe but I'm not in love with the brand. 1) it's pricey 2) it doesn't last long at all (only about a week for my 11lb dog 3) makes a mess with rehydrating 4) as a raw diet they don't include everything that should be there like for organ meat they only use liver, if they would use more than just liver I would like it more but they're pricey and also use cheaper foods and they use heart in a lot of recipes for muscle meat because its generally cheaper.

  • Great, but...

    By on

    My kids love this food, and it is a very high quality. However, it falls apart so easily. It's already falling apart in the bag...so when you soak it in water you end up with a stew. I will keep buying it though, because it is one of a few of the FD Primal flavors that get a 5 star rating on Dog Food Advisor. Also, 2 of my kids won't drink enough water out of a dish...so this "stew" is actually helping with that. I just gotta eyeball it to make sure they are getting the correct serving sizes, since I can't go by counting the pieces.

  • MUST BE TASTY

    By on

    I usually just mix freeze dried food in as a topper with my dog's Orijen dry food.. I have never seen him try to gobble down food so fast! He licked the plate clean!! Will definitely buy more primal.

  • Trying to switch over

    By on

    I have tried freeze dried twice now and frozen also and still can’t get my dog to eat this. He’s always been picky. I think this needs to be tastier.

    I feed Primal to my pups but oddly enough it is significantly cheaper to buy this from my local pet shop. Why so much more on Chewy?

  • My yorkies love

    By on

    I just recently chose to go raw but was very intimidated by the thought of making my own. I heard about primal and decided to give it a try. My yorkies love this product! They are doing so well that I'm switching my gsd as well. I will be using a different product because this one would be to expensive. Of course I ordered the new product from chewy.

  • Pickiest eater on earth LOVES THIS

    By on

    My mini Aussie is an *****extremely***** picky eater when it comes to dog food (and even treats) but he *LOVES* this so much it makes us both so happy. My gsd puppy wants this too, and she is also picky about dog food. We go through this bag very fast and I've ordered so many bags thus far, so only complaint I have is that it is very expensive when you have to buy so many bags so often. I'd say at least 2 bags a month for him and that's just for a morning feeding for my mini aussie only.
