Primitive Feline formula is formulated to provide this high protein nutrition to help build and maintain lean muscle mass with a taste your cat will love. Along with protein, there is a healthy mix of vegetables and fruits, which contain natural antioxidants important for everyday optimal health. Balanced levels of calcium and phosphorus help build strong bones and teeth. Vitamins and minerals help support your cat's immune system, good digestion and intestinal health. This grain-free diet is a healthy alternative and is sure to be one your cat will enjoy.

Key Benefits

  • Vitamin E and Vitamin C, along with wholesome vegetables & fruits such as peas, apples, blueberries, carrots, spinach and cranberries support a strong immune system
  • Made with high-quality ingredients and processing technologies for excellent digestibility and nutrient absorption
  • Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids are vital for a cat's immune and nervous systems, while also supporting healthy skin and coat
  • Proper levels of calcium and phosphorous help ensure that your cat or kitten gets the right mineral balance to build and maintain strong teeth and bones
  • Quality protein sources, such as turkey meal, chicken meal, herring meal, salmon meal and whitefish meal, aid in building and maintaining your cat’s muscle

Feeding Instructions

Adjust amounts accordingly over time. Please remember these portions are averages and will vary according to age, activity, size and temperament of your cat. When introducing Primitive Feline™ to your cat's diet, mix increasing amounts of Primitive Feline™ with decreasing amounts of the current food over a one-week period. 

During gestation and lactation, feed two to three times as much food as recommended in the Daily Feeding Guide for the weight of your adult cat. Kittens start to eat solid foods at three to four weeks of age and should have free access to moistened food from this time until weaning (6 - 8 weeks). Moistened food should be one part warm water with three parts Primitive Feline™. You may keep Primitive Feline™ before your kitten at all times; most kittens will satisfy their nutritional needs as their appetite dictates. Have clean, fresh water available at all times.

Transition Instructions

  • On days 1 & 2 of the change, you should have plenty of your pet’s old food left. Fill the bowl with three quarters of the old food, and one quarter of Earthborn Holistic®.

  • On days 3 & 4, add in another quarter, so you have half old food, half Earthborn Holistic®.

  • On days 5 & 6, mix one quarter old food and three quarters Earthborn Holistic® Food for Pets.

  • In only 7 days, your pet will be on an all-new diet of Earthborn Holistic® Food for Pets!

  • My cat loves it

    By on

    My rescue tortie cat ate Royal Canin gastrointestinal for years to help with loose stools. Her stools never really got too firm. I discovered Earthborn when I adopted a rescue greyhound. I decided to try the Earthborn cat food. My cat loves it and her stools are no longer loose. I had to special order the Earthborn cat food where I live. That was a process so I decided to try Chewy. This is my first Chewy purchase. It arrived next day, well packaged and the product had a good shelf life. What more could you want?

  • Finally found something they will eat

    By on

    Have 2 senior cats that over the course of a year have become VERY picky eaters and as a result lost way too much weight. I tried so many different food and they would graze a little and walk away, even went back to what they had when they were babies with no luck. Not sure how I even found this product, think it was trial and error but I am very educated on what I feed my animals so there is a standard I don't just buy anything, I go through reviews, look at what is in it, etc. Anyhow they are finally eating this consistently (for the most part) and their weight is finally up a tad. I do use both the dry and wet brands and various flavors to keep them interested.

  • healthy cat food

    I tried a small bag of this to use in my cats rotation. All 6 of my cats loved it! It has healthy ingredients and made in USA. I had to quickly order a large bag before I ran out.

  • Amazing product!

    By on

    We bought this product to replace our former grain-free food because it was available in our home town. Our five ferrets love it, and have never been more playful or energetic. They have thicker and softer than ever. Even took it to the vet to get an opinion on the food; and we were told that it was an exceptional quality food. Super excited to see it available on here.

  • She's like a totally different cat!

    By on

    I originally got this food at ps+ but they don't carry it anymore, I went in there on edge not knowing what to do about my cats behavior problems, She wasn't going in her box and was scarfing food like she never ate in her life. my vet told me to try a non grain/gluten food with higher protein, and better ingredients.. After a week of feeding her this, she's more playful friendly n talkative, doesn't sleep all day.. but more importantly she's going in her box again. I was so happy. She's a totally different cat

  • My cat and kittens didn't like it.

    By on

    I tried mixing with their other foods but they just didn't like it. I will be donating it to the Humane Society for other kitties to enjoy.

  • Cats say no

    By on

    Cats used to like this reasonably well, but now they despise it, especially the oldest cat. Someone on here said they change the formulation periodically. Well, if that's what they did, they should put it back the way it was. It's too bad, as it did make their fur nice and soft, and the dog eats her food of this same brand just fine. Anyway, I am back to Halo for the cats. The oldest one purred the whole time she was eating that today instead of glaring at me.

  • Nope

    By on

    I have 4 cats, one of which is a picky eater but prefers dry food. None of my cats like this. They will eat it, but the certainly don't gobble it down like other foods they've tried. There is still a slight mix of their old food in with this and they always eat the old food kibbles and leave this stuff behind. I also don't think they like how small the kibbles are either. That being said, this is a quality food for dry food and the price is great- just wish my cats liked it as much as I wanted them to!
