Description

Because cats are true carnivores, they crave protein from high quality sources like turkey, chicken, herring, salmon and whitefish. 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 3 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 3 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!

    This is by far the BEST holistic dry food I have found!! We have a long haired fur baby that we rescued and it's really easy to see when her diet isn't what it should be. This food has improved the quality of her coat and adds the perfect amount of protein and veggies to her diet! I was doing a raw diet with her when we first got her so that I could get her where I wanted her to be health wise. That was, until I came across earthborn, and after a ton of research I made the switch to their dry food and now with the addition of their wet food I feel super confident that donuts moon is getting the best diet possible!

  • my kids hate it

    By on

    I bought this food last Thursday. It arrived on Friday....what sold me was the fact it was compared to Fromm....my cats LOVED that food but I couldn't afford it...looked at the reviews. I bought a 14 pound bag and I might have just bought food to donate...*total face palm here* I usually refill their food bowls every day or 1.5 days from their Pro PAC food...I have only refilled their bowls twice up until today...THEY HATE IT...and they're complaining. I've integrated their old and new food and all they do is nose it around and just pick out the pro PAC and leave the other kibble....the reason I changed was because pro PAC is extremely high in fiber and they are pooping A LOT so my cat litter I bought this food last Thursday.

Honestly I wish there was a sample variety pack of things just for my cat kids to try before I go out on the food again...the pet store no longer carries PRO PAC. And I still want to feed the food that's good for them and good for my pockets. Oh well back to the pro PAC asap and cleaning the litter three times a day. … more

  • Best quality for the price

    By on

    I love that this food is very high in protein, very little carbs, and a moderate amount of fat. That is the perfect ratio for a cat, especially for my cat that needs to loose a few pounds and needs to cut out the carbs. It was difficult finding a high protein food like 35% or higher without paying $50+ per 8lb bag. This bag was a reasonable price and was 14lbs! Pretty great compared to Origen, Fromm, Eon and the other brands that want top dollar for a tiny bag. My one cat loves it, the other eats it reluctantly. She used to eat a food full of corn and corn tastes sweet so she is not used to this. I like that the kibble is super small and easy for cats to eat.

The ingredients look good too. Very happy that I found a large bag, high protein, grain free (plus little amout of carbs added like potatoes or rice) and a great price. Took a star off because I think they are trying to save a little by making a 14lb instead of 15lb bag. And they could still bring their prices down because no one can beat Victor or Dave's when it comes to affordability. … more

  • Great ingredients, but my cats won't eat it.

    By on

    So I have been looking for a high quality cat food for all life stages now that we have 4 cats of various ages. I've been feeding Taste of the Wild Rocky Mountain cat food, but was interested in something of even higher quality. Unfortunately, this my cats won't eat this food unless starving! I also free-feed T/D to them for dental care, and they will eat all of the T/D before eating this. So I'm going back to Taste of the Wild.

  • Loved by my cats

    By on

    My cats love to eat this and will down it as well as they do the wet food. This version is good for kittens and adult cats both to eat so you do not have to transition the kitten off to an adult version of the food. High protein and grain free which is a plus. Only a few stores have this locally and only in small bags so I am happy to be able to purchase this from Chewy and get a larger back at my door for a good price.

  • Great quality food and kitties love it!

    By on

    I am a small hobby breeder and I was looking for decent priced high protein food that I could feed to my mommy cats that was also suitable for weaning kittens. I stumbled across this food and not only does it have great ingredients including high protein all my mommy cats and there kittens love it and thrive on it. They put weight on and have heathy coats and high energy. This food is a keeper. I love it and most importantly so do my furry friends.

  • Cats Not Thrilled

    By on Top 10 Contributor

    Another food that looking at the ingredients listed is a very good food. However my cats only picked at it and walked away. Later all 6 cats were very hungry and begging for food. I did not give in and they went 24 hours without touching this food. Can't say I would recommend since it does no good to have good ingredients if cats won't touch it.

  • Missing PureVita

    By on

    My cats like Earthbound and I am thankful for that as Chewy stopped selling PureVita . I have read that there are 2 ingredients that are not good for cats as I expect holistic to be exceptional without worry. Overall , ok until I get my hands on PureVita. Darn , the picture came out sideways.

  • Earthborn Grain-Free Dry Food

    By on

    I bought a 14 lb bag of this food because I was told my kittens had been eating it while being fostered. Unfortunately, after receiving the bag I found that they will only eat it if it's the ONLY thing left in the dish. I believe the food is of high quality, it's just that it doesn't suit the palate of my pair.

  • Unfortunately my cat didn't like it

    By on

    I have been feeding my cat Earthborn canned food for over a year, she loves almost all the flavor they got. So I decided to let her try this dry food to see if It could replace her old dry food. Unfortunately she didn't like it at all. I'm disappointed. I know this is a good product, just too bad.
