Lamb and Lung Puffs? A Primal Pet Foods Review

Lamb.  Delicious, right?  How about some Lung Puffs for a treat?  You aren't too sure about that one, are you?

As you know, I am part of the Primal Pet Foods Product Review Program and after Ma clarified that I was allergic to poultry, the kind folks at Primal sent me some Freeze-Dried Lamb Formula and some Venison Lung Puffs treats.  I know to humans these may not sound appetizing but rest assured, dogs will LOVE them!

Freeze-Dried Lamb Formula
The Primal Lamb Formula has superior levels of amino and essential fatty acids...and it tastes delicious.  Check out the ingredients list:

Lamb Hearts, Lamb Livers, Ground Lamb Bones, Organic Kale, Organic Carrots, Organic Yams, Organic Broccoli, Organic Apples, Cranberries, Blueberries, Organic Pumpkin Seeds, Organic Sunflower Seeds, Minerals (Zinc Sulfate, Copper Carbonate, Sodium Selenite), Organic Parsley, Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, Salmon Oil, Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Quinoa Sprout Powder, Dried Organic Kelp, Alfalfa, Natural Vitamin E, and Mixed Tocopherols (natural preservative).


Primal Pet Foods Freeze-Dried Lamb nuggets

 As with all the freeze-dried formulas, you just break up the nuggets, add some water and then it is ready to eat.  Ma had been purchasing the Freeze-Dried Duck formula so the Lamb was a nice change.  We did notice that the Freeze-Dried Lamb Formula nuggets were a bit harder to break up than the Duck, but we just assume it is because it is a different kind of meat.



(Just so you know, the Lamb is all gone - I ate every last nugget - and Ma had to go buy more...and she bought me the Frozen Lamb Formula to try.)

Venison Lung Puffs
OK...stay calm...the Venison Lung Puffs are dry roasted, not raw.  BOL

Primal Pet Foods gets their venison from New Zealand, where the venison is raised without any antibiotics or added hormones.  When they dry roast the lung pieces, Primal adds no preservatives, salt or sugar.  

Basically, these are straight up lung pieces and they look every bit as you think they would look (the weak may want to avert their eyes).



Ingredients:  Venison Lung, Ascorbic Acid (source of Vitamin C)

The Primal Pet Foods Venison Lung Puffs contain some great minerals including Calcium, Copper, Iron, Magnesium, Maganese, Phosphorous, Potassium, Sodium and Zinc.  I have enjoyed these treats...a lot!

Since I had been enjoying the Venison Lung Puffs, Ma went shopping and got me two other types of Primal Pet Foods treats to try - Dry Roasted Buffalo Liver Chunks and Dry Roasted Lamb Lung Crisps.  I love them all...but can you guess which is my favorite of the three?

You know you want to try some of these!!

Ma says I have expensive taste because my favorite of the three treats are the Dry Roasted Buffalo Liver Chunks (and according to Ma, they cost the most of all the treats).

So, how do the Freeze-Dried Lamb Formula and Dry Roasted Venison Lung Puffs rate?  I give them 4 out of 4 dog bones because they are delicious and healthy!

Thank you Primal Pet Foods for allowing me to try the Freeze-Dried Lamb Formula and the Dry Roasted Venison Lung Puffs.  I have added them into my diet since variety is key when eating raw!

  3. Sometimes I forget that this stuff is so gross looking; if I didn't have three dogs who love it, I wouldn't buy it. I gave them smoked pork hearts this morning. It makes them so happy but 10 years ago I wouldn't have believed you if you told me these things existed :)

    Anything to keep them happy and healthy! Thanks for the recommendation.

    1. Ma agrees with you, Kimberly...they do NOT look appetizing to humans (I say, more for me then!). However, I think they are all delicious and nothing is added to them...just dry roasted organ pieces. You should give them a try!

    1. Oh dear dog...Cat Primal instead of Dog...that's almost as bad as daddy-dog seeing "sardines" on the package and buying it for me when it has poultry in it (and I'm allergic to poultry). Humans!

  19. Lamb Lung Puffs are amazing! Price wise, you might want to look at Jones lung puffs. Is there a store near you which sells Jones?
