Review: Primal Venison Lung Puffs

Primal lung puffs review | Doggerel

We’re big fans of limited-ingredient treats over here, and so we were excited to try this offering from Primal: Venison Lung Puffs. (The name makes me laugh a bit. “Lung puffs” sound like what a baby dragon might do when learning how to blow smoke…)

The treats are dehydrated and come in a variety of sizes and chips, but they are easy to break up (without excess dust or crumbs).

I’m not sure if the dogs have had venison before, but they were BIG fans! This is purely anecdotal, too, but they really seem to go crazy for treats that are solo ingredient (i.e., just meat), much more than the ones that have grains or other fillers in them.

Ingredients list? Venison lung and ascorbic acid. You can’t really beat that!

Additionally, these treats offer:

  • Venison raised in New Zealand without antibiotics or added hormones
  • Single-source protein
  • No preservatives
  • Grain and gluten free
  • No added salt or sugar

Do your dogs eat limited-ingredient treats? If you don’t make them yourself, what are some of your favorite sources/brands for these kinds of treats?

Disclosure: We were provided with a bag of these treats by in exchange for our honest review.

  1. You found these easy to break up? Wow, I feel like a wimp. Although, I’m probably trying to break them up a lot smaller than you are. They aren’t hard to half, depending on what shape they are, but I really need them in quarters or less to be a good size for Silas. As it is, we just save them for big “snack” treats.

  2. Lung puffs?! Can’t say I’ve heard of them before!
    As for treats, Sam loves soft treats, he’ll spit out and leave hard treats. He’s not into biscuity treats either. But his ultimate fave is just plain roast chicken 🙂

  3. I’ll have to try these with our dogs. They haven’t had much exposure to venison. And the price is right. There are natural meat treats at a few local stores that start at $12 and the bags aren’t that big (or full).
