Key Benefits

  • They use wholesome fresh venison that's raised without antibiotics, steroids or added hormones. It provides superior levels of amino and essential fatty acids while finely ground, fresh venison bones supply optimum levels of calcium. Whole cold-water sardines are a good source of essential Omega-3 fatty acids which help to maintain healthy skin and coat.
  • Made in the USA!
  • 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 canine 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 dog's with sensitivities.
  • Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant and taurine helps your dog maintain optimum retinal health. The nuggets are naturally preserved without the need for any synthetic preservatives.

Additional Details

Because calories vary between products, this feeding chart is based on a 2.5% and formula rotation. Your dog's activity, age, metabolism and breed may affect overall feeding quantity.

Because of the importance of moisture in a raw diet, we recommend 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. Divide total daily feeding portion into 2 meals. Puppies and pregnant or lactating females: divide total daily feeding portion into 3 - 4 meals.

Keep bag sealed until ready to use. For optimum freshness after opening, store in a cool, dry place. Be sure to seal bag completely after feeding. Once hydrated, Freeze - Dried Formula will maintain optimum freshness for 3 - 5 days under refrigeration.

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.

  • Not enough nuggets in the bag

    By on

    Tried to go by the feeding suggestions which suggested my 35# dog needs about 12 nuggets a day. Sounds good if you assume the bag contains 42-56 nuggets -- I assumed that on average I'd get 48. Not so - of the 2 bags I received of Venison, 1 had 36 and 1 had 39 nuggets. I'm having to feed this temporarily as his only food, so it's a much bigger expense than I expected :-(

  • Dog liked these the least

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    Let me first start off by saying that Primal freeze-dried nuggets are amazing and a great food to feed your dog! I have tried multiple kinds of Primal and the venison is the one my dog liked the least and I actually didn't like this one for her either. The venison nuggets were very, very hard and condensed, almost like a block of cement and very hard to break it up to rehydrate for my small dog. Even after sitting in warm water for several minutes it never seemed to completely rehydrate so I avoid buying the venison anymore. To be fair, it might have just been a bad batch, not quality wise, but texture wise, but I don't want to take the chance with this one again.

  • Great for dogs with issues

    By on

    I have 2 smart toy poodles. I leave a high quality grain free kibble out for them to pick on throughout the day but they have separation anxiety and won't touch if they know I am leaving the house. Before I leave in the morning I crumple up several of these primal venison nuggets into warm water and it doesn't matter if I have my car keys in my hand ready to go because my dogs won't even look up from the bowl they LOVE this food so much. Most nutritious food on the market! Venison is the best!

    My dog is allergic to almost every ingredient in most foods. My vet recommended this one and so far he is okay with it.

  • Pups like so far

    By on

    The pups seems to like it so far..the consistency is good, although of course it does shrink down in volume once water is added. I like that I can have it drier or wetter as each dog prefers by increasing/decreasing water as needed. Most blocks were intact, some powder in the bottom of the bags: this is easily fixed by using a whole nugget to measure, then just measure out the powder as needed.

  • Very convenient and nutritious.

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    I cannot afford to feed my Olde English Bulldogge Primal Venison as a sole ration. It would cost well over $300 a month just for his freeze dried food, not including his $50 a month Dasaquin joint supplement he was prescribed for dysplasia. So, since he is an allergy dog, I have chosen to feed him the simple ingredient salmon kibble and have replaced his twice daily dog treat biscuits with this healthy alternative. The firm, bar shaped nuggets are a huge hit with my dog and offer up a second healthy protein source. If you have a large breed dog, using a Primal freeze dried nugget in place of a treat each day is an excellent way of utilizing this product in an affordable way.

This extremely nutritious food bar sure beats an allergen and junk filled dog biscuit or treat. No stomach issues, either. The bars are a bit drier and tougher than the other freeze dried products I've tried, but I was impressed with how this product arrived intact and without the crushed mess at the bottom of the bag. Very minimal, to no waste. So yes, they may need more time to reconstitute in water, but I received an intact product. Dogs over 20 lbs should have no issues eating a dry bar as a snack. They aren't nearly as hard and dry as biscuits or kibble. I really recommend this healthy product! … more
