They're also an excellent alternative for conventional frozen or homemade raw feeders in a pinch, or when traveling with or boarding your pet. Freeze dried is the most flavor-packed food available, so it's a prime choice for choosy dogs or dogs struggling to eat.

Life Stages & AAFCO Statement:
Primal Pet Foods Raw Canine Turkey & Sardine Freeze-Dried Formula is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for All Life Stages.
Rehydrate food with warm water, bone broth, or raw goat milk to ensure optimum nutrient absorption. Primal recommends thoroughly incorporating one tablespoon of hydration for every nugget served, or 1/4 cup for 4 nuggets. For best results, break nuggets into pieces and mix thoroughly.
Use stainless steel bowls when feeding any raw product. Other materials, such as plastic and porcelain, are porous and can trap germs over time.
Feed adult dogs the equivalent of 2-3% of their body weight in rehydrated food per day. See the chart below for feeding guidelines. Because calories vary between Primal products, this feeding chart is based around rotating formulas and 2.5% of body weight as the optimal feeding amount. Your dog's activity, age, metabolism, and breed may affect feeding quantity.
Adult dogs should have total daily feeding portion divided into at least 2 meals. Puppies and pregnant or lactating females should have their daily feeding portion divided into 3 or 4 meals.

Safe Handling: Wash all work surfaces, utensils, hands, and food bowls with hot, soapy water after handling raw meats and poultry. Keep raw meat and poultry away from children and separate from other foods.
Storage: Freeze-dried food is shelf-stable and should be kept in a cool, dry place. Once rehydrated, keep refrigerated and feed within 5 days for optimum freshness.
