Feeding Instructions: Because of the importance of moisture in a raw diet, we recommend rehydrating Freeze-Dried Formula for optimum nutrition absorption. To rehydrate, add 1 tablespoon of water for every nugget or 1/4 cup of water for 4 nuggets. For best rehydrating results, break nugget into small pieces and mix thoroughly with water to force moisture into product.
Factors such as level of activity, age, health, metabolism and breed play a part in the necessary feeding quantities of all animals. Please be sure to monitor your pet's dietary needs and adjust the feeding quantities accordingly.
This flavor is definitely a household favorite for my long-haired adult rescue kitty (origin unknown, suspected Siberian) and purebred Ragdoll Kitten. My adult kitty has been eating Primal for several years now, and I seamlessly switched my Ragdoll kitten to Primal from the cattery's choice when he was ~10-11weeks. I left a more thorough/specific review about why I love Primal for them under the Duck flavor, their other top favorite. I'm writing this as well because Turkey is not only a cat favorite, but also a human favorite because it is very easy to break apart (like the Duck flavor). Some flavors' nuggets are inherently more densely packed than others, due to being made from different ingredients. This one is easy to break apart and absorbs moisture very quickly. I use warm water to simulate natural freshness. Lastly, another "human reason" I give Primal freeze-dried 5 stars is that I can transfer everything to attractive glass containers that look fancy and organized on my counter. I lazily distinguish between flavors by memory and subtle visual differences, but I see great potential for a DIY canister project with chalkboard labels! =)
