Feeding Instructions

Adjust amounts accordingly over time. These portions are averages; portions will vary by the age, activity, size, and temperament of your dog. When introducing Earthborn Holistic® to your dog's diet, mix increasing amounts of Earthborn Holistic® with decreasing amounts of the old 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 dog. Puppies start to eat solid foods at three to four weeks of age and should have free access to solid food from that time until weaning. You may keep Earthborn Holistic® before your puppy at all times. Most puppies will satisfy their nutritional needs as their appetites dictate. Have clean, fresh water available for your dog 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!

Customer Reviews

Earthborn Holistic Primitive Natural Grain-Free Natural Dry Dog Food is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 218.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shih Tzu likes it! My 2-year-old Shih Tzu has a problem with sometimes throwing up the dog food she eats. At first I thought it was because she ate too quickly (and my vet agreed), but as she's gotten older and eats more slowly, the problem persisted, along with a disinclination to eat the food at all. I had been (on the advice of my vet) feeding her Hill's, so I decided to change food to see if that helped. I shifted her onto Chicken Soup for the Soul, but the same thing happened. After a couple of months, I decided to try a No-Grain variety. I researched the options and settled on Earth Born Primitive. When I first set down a small amount of it for her to try, she ate it readily, so mark one point for Appetizing. Also, she's been on it now for nearly a month, and I've not seen her throw it up at all. Score another point. So, yes, I can readily say that I recommend this brand, particularly if you have a dog that's reluctant to eat and/or throws up its food. Good product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not Quite Sure Yet! My senior boy gobbles this food up, but my 2 young girls don't seem thrilled by it. They'll usually finish their entire bowl only if I add pumpkin or chicken broth. I can't decide if they dislike the food or are just terribly spoiled lol

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our dogs love it and good quality! I've done a lot of research on types of dog food. I have found Earthborn, specifically the Primitive Natural to be a great quality of food for the price. Earthborn has various flavors, but this is the one was ranked higher than the other. All 4 of our dogs (Scottish Terrier, Cairn Terrier, German Shepherd, and Manchester Terrier mix) all like it. The kernels are a size that are suitable for the different sized dogs. Our Scottie, who is 8, had started slowing down but when I switched to Primitive Natural he dropped weight and his energy went through the roof. He plays like a puppy again and its fantastic! Because of the quality - their stool is firm and easy to clean up and there isn't a strong odor or gas on their part, WHICH OBVIOUSLY MAKES ME VERY HAPPY! :-) We also foster dogs for 2 rescues and both rescues approve of the brand as a healthy option for their fosters and some foster homes I talk to have switched to this brand because of the price to quality ratio.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from He likes it! My dog likes this food, however it did not agree with his stomach. He does have a sensitive stomach so I do not blame the food. I started out mixing it in very slowly but his system just couldn't deal with it. He done ok at a 50/50 mix of this food and the other food, but any more than that and he had issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more mad-dash to get dog food Love that I can have an auto-shipment set-up. I get the large size bag of dog food so would wait to the last minute to lug the bag to and from my car. Now it is delivered to my door on a planned schedule BEFORE we run out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from dogs loved it My wolf hybrid loved this food and needed something high in protein this product works great. I also love how the bag is resealable just like a ziplock bag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A So-So Reaction in My Dogs Earthborn is a very good food for the price. However, I am not crazy about the high potato content in this blend, even though Dog Food Advisor gave it five stars. It is a good value, but I'd rather spend a bit more and get a food that my dogs are wild for, and need to eat less of. If Earthborn would address their bag-sealing issues, that would be helpful. My two 14-pound bags of Small Breed had defective zipper seals and both my small bags Primitive Natural and Great Plains Feast had no seal. I'd roll the tops over and clip them. I think when one buys a premium food, the packaging matters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our dogs love it! We have two dogs, one Jack Russell Terrier mix and one Boxer Terrier mix. Our Boxer mix has digestive issues and needs high quality food. After researching different brands and reading through tons of articles we found Earthborn dry food and started feeding it to the dogs. Our dogs love the food, they are excited to eat it and can't wait till it's feeding time! They digest the food wonderfully so far.
