  • 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 cats 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 Cats: Divide total daily feeding portion into 2 meals.

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

    F1 Savannah cat LOVES these nuggets!

    By on

    My cat literally went crazy when I opened the bag! He usually eats some raw wild game scraps everyday but I’m about to run out of the scraps so I thought I would check out this product. VERY HAPPY with Primal Nuggets! Will definitely be ordering this product every month!

    Edible, but not her favorite

    By on

    My cat only eats this reluctantly when served on its own, but she does eat it just fine when it's mixed with another freeze-dried raw food that she likes the flavor of better. However, I still wouldn't repurchase because you have to crush up the big blocks this food comes in, and that takes too much time and effort compared to other freeze-dried raw foods that come in smaller pieces and therefore absorb water more readily.

    Hard to crumble

    By on

    My cats really love the venison formula. My problem with it is that the nuggets are very hard making them difficult to crumble.

    Hard but..

    By on

    My oriental shorthair would be happy eating raw meat all day every day . This is a good compromise. I do agree with other reviewers these blocks are VERY hard and tough. But if you let them sit for a few with warm water and break them up with a fork they are still gobbled up. I believe it may be due to the low fat content of venison which makes them so hard.

    inconsistent nugget softness

    By on

    My cat loves this food, but the nuggets in some batches are as hard as rock. Very, painful for me with hand arthritis to break up to hydrate. Contacted Primal asked them to reformulate in flakes w/ scoop. Refuse to. Said this was a bad batch & would refund. This is the 2nd bag I got with rock hard nuggets. I'm stumped as how to get bags of nuggets not like rocks?

    Love Primal

    By on

    I have a Bengal that’s pretty finicky, recently he was injured and almost died. I ground Primal up in the blender then added water so it was thin. Without a doubt Primal helped him get back on his feet.

    New Formula?

    By on

    My cats used to love the venison; however, the last 3 months the cubes are greasy and flakey and none of the cats will eat it anymore. I have returned all the bags of this and will not be purchasing in the future.

    Five cats who normally love venison say no thanks.

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    I have ten cats, five of whom love several other brands of venison. I thought I would give this a try. The cubes are as the other reviewers said, hard as rocks. I did manage to get them chunked up and put warm water on to rehydrate. One cat tried to eat some after five minutes, but all she did was move the pieces off of the plate. They have all smelled the food. It is now 40 minutes later, and I would say it is finally rehydrated. None of the cats have eaten it, let alone chowed down like they usually do when given venison. I'm glad I took another reviewers advise and tried a small bag first. I'm very disappointed. I should have bought one of the other brands of venison that I know they like.
