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 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!

    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

  • our cats will no longer eat anything else

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    When we brought home our rescue we had him on an indoor formula grain free food formulated for adults and he loved it. But then my daughter brought home a couple of kittens and we decided to put them all on an all life stages cat food. I did some research and decided on this and it was a great decision. The kittens love it and so does our 3 year old, so much so in fact that he refuses to touch his old food even with wet food added. The Earthborn holistic food has great ingrediants along with high protein and low carbs and Chewys price and customer service can't be beat. The bag is actually resealable too which is nice with 3 cats that i can hardly keep out of it!

    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.

  • Best food ever

    By on

    I have researched cat foot extensively and Earthborn is always rated highly in reviews. I am now feeding Earthborn exclusively to my kitties (3 of them, aged 13, 7, and 3). The love both the dry food and all wet food varieties. Love, love, love Earthborn. You can't beat it for quality and nutritional value.

  • High quality good price

    By on

    I have male cats that need a low ash content dry food and I believe this to be a good choice. It's hard to find food they like that is good for them as well, Earthborn seems to be able to meet both those needs. My cats are energetic look great and are happy kitties. I'd say a win/win for all.

  • Francie Loves Earthborn!

    By on

    My shelter special needs cat loves Earthborn. Her previous owner only fed her treats & she had digestive issues. She also has a chronic upper respiratory affliction & wheat affects her sinuses. Earthborn has helped to reduce her sneezing & sinus flare-ups & no more vomiting!! She only eats Primitive & Earthborn's chicken blend (purple bag). Her coat is shiny & she plays with her toys like a true 4yo cat. This food has made a huge difference in the 1 month I've had her. I also gave some to my mail carrier - whose male cat can't keep anything down. He loves Earthborn - no more vomiting & her 3 female cats will only eat this now. I'm grateful for Earthborn. Totally recommend it!!

  • Cats will not eat :(

    By on

    My cats (all 7 of them) absolutely hate this food. They would not eat it. After my cats' original food that they loved was discontinued I decided to try this brand. I ended up giving a bag away and even those cats hated it. Super disappointed in this food. I so miss Pure Vita.

  • Awesome product

    By on

    This food was well received by my 8 cats. It not only resolved over eating but it resolved my senior boy's digestive issues. The pellets are small and they are actually chewing their food and not inhaling it. It's also great for 8 individual picky, picky eaters. All of them really enjoy it!
