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 1 - week period.

During gestation and lactation, feed 2 - 3 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 3 - 4 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.

Earthborn Holistic® Primitive Natural™ is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for all life stages, except for growth of large size dogs (70 lbs. or more as an Adult).

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!

  • It works but the pup ain't talkin'

    By on

    The most expensive food I have ever given a dog, is it the best? Who knows. My pup has never had dietary issues. Does he like the food? He doesn't talk much but he has never not eaten anything I have given him which includes Blue Buffalo, American Journey and super market food. Is he still shedding more than any dog I've had the pleasure to have in my life? Yes. Does he seem happier, healthier? No, not really. Would I spend this much on food again? Probably not. While I don't doubt this is a good and well balanced food, I think there are others out there just as good and less money...And when you are close to retiring, money counts. Yup, I love my dog more than you could ever know but there The most expensive food I have ever given a dog, is it the best? Who knows. My pup has never had dietary issues. Does he like the food?

If you do a little research, find how many recalls your dog's food has gone through. … more

  • Good food for a good price

    By on

    There aren't a whole lot of flowery things that need to be said when a food works; It just works! This food works for all of my dogs, and I appreciate that. Rich nutrition at a working man's price. Of the Earthborn line, it may also be the only one that doesn't have flaxseed as an ingredient, and that appeals to people like me who want to avoid phytoestrogens. My APBTs approve of this formula, so I'll keep buying it as long as it treats them well.

  • Picky German Shepherd loves it

    By on

    My German Shepherd has a sensitive stomach and I've been trying to find a food that not only works for his tummy but that he'll eat. He is so finicky about his food but this he seems to really like and his poop has been getting firmer. It's also a 5 star rated food on dog food advisor so it's clearly some of the best food on the market. Side note, chewy.com has the best customer service in existence.

  • My (senior) babies love it!

    By on

    I transitioned my two standard golden doodles to this as they are now 7 and 9 years old. It is grain free, which is good for older dogs as their activity levels begin to decline. They absolutely love it and it has been an incredibly smooth transition for their digestive systems! I am so happy we switched!

  • Earthborn yes- Primitive Natural not for us.

    By on

    We've used other Earthborn Naturals and had great success with softened fur, helped active dog not get too skinny as he easily dumps weight. But hokey smelly , the Primitive Natural has a strong unpleasant odor upon opening the bag, and 13 days in my dog has the worse smelling toxic gas ever, we added pre/probiotics with no relief, does his tummy hurt? This has not been a pleasant experience from bag, to bowl to home to pick up in yard.

  • They love it.

    By on

    My two shepherds really like this, and that's a plus because they can be somewhat picky. The price is high, but I know it's a quality food, so as long as I can afford it, I will keep them on it. It seems to go quickly. :) Chewy is one of the best shippers by far. My shipping was FREE, which means a lot, and I got two bags the NEXT DAY! Can't get much better than that. Keep up the great work Chewy!

  • My puppy has been great on this for months

    By on

    Love the high protein amount compared to many other foods for my pit-bull girl since she has a little more muscle on her! Good mix of meats and ingredients. My girl doesn't have any problem scarfing it down in a few seconds. She's always full of energy and is doing great. Price is good but could always be better!

  • Our dog wouldn't eat this but I'm sure it's good!

    By on

    Our super picky 16# rescue Bichon/Miniature Poodle mix turned his nose up at this kibble. He's never loved any of the high end dry or canned dog food I've bought for him in the 3 years we've had him. He'll only eat the kibble if we don't give him cooked meat from our meal or if he doesn't have any other options and he's hungry enough. He liked Fromm Gold for Small Breeds of all the kibble he's been offered but still doesn't love it. Since Chewy no longer carries Fromm, I decided to try to find him a kibble he'll love. Unfortunately, it isn't Earthborn Holistic. I know this is a good and highly rated kibble from researching different brand and reading dog owner reviews and Dog Advisor/consumer Our super picky 16# rescue Bichon/Miniature Poodle mix turned his nose up at this kibble.

  • Dogs love this

    By on

    I have a husky and a flat coated retriever and they are picky eaters. They are also big eaters. I wanted something that was good for them and not going to break the bank. This food fits the bill. And they love it.
