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
