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!

Earthborn Holistic Primitive Natural Grain-Free Natural Dry Dog Food is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 209.
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 My Pittie Mix Loves This My girl loves this! The kibble is on the smaller side, but she can't get enough of this. It's also very easy on her stomach. Her poops are actually solid with this food. This has a 5 star rating on dog food advisor and is great for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy One of our dogs is diabetic and with research we found a food at the local health food store that keeps his diabetes under control. But the store stopped carrying the brand of food. When a friend showed us Chewy we looked to see if they carried it. YES YES YES!!! They did!!! We saved 10.00 dollars too (The food is expensive). We are sooo happy to have found Chewy. We tell everyone to try it.

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 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 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 My Shepherds love this My Shepherds were eating the coastal catch but started to get bored with it. I switched to Primitive and they love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This food is fantastic My husky would not touch his previous dog food. He was losing weight and I was getting worried. I did a lot of research and discovered Earthborn. Not only did it have a perfect 5 starts on Dog Food Advisor and wonderful reviews, it was also very budget friendly compared to other premium kibble. As soon as I filled his bowl he went to town! He ate the entire 2 cups I gave him in, maybe, a minute. It's been a couple of weeks and he continues to eat every last bit I give him. He had very dry and cracked paws and already they have healed up and become soft and smooth. He also isn't itching any more and he is gaining his weight back. I am very pleased with this product. We also just got a new puppy and she is handling this food great, she might like it even more than my husky! I also have to mention that the Chewy service was ÀMAZING! I recieved my order so quickly and I love the option to customize the auto ship to fit your needs!
