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.

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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Pups approve of Earthborn

    By on

    Great product at a fair price. My dogs have never been overly excited to eat their dog food, but when this bag of dog food arrived they were excited and could hardly wait for their dinner. Now they anxiously run to their dishes waiting for their food. I am very happy they are enjoying a much healthier dog food and greatly enjoying it.

  • 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!

  • Expecting great results.

    By on

    This is the first time we bought this kibble. Our dogs, all love the food, even our most finicky eater! We do supplement the kibble with some coconut oil, Glucosamine/Chondroitin and Omega 3,6. Despite the manufacturer adding these supplements to the kibble formula, much is lost during the manufacturing process. We did this with our previous kibble as well, and our dogs are doing GREAT!

  • Very Happy

    By on

    I have a 5yr old mini dachshund who is a fussy eater and I've tried a lot of foods, high end grain free foods, this is the first one he actually comes running for at meal time and eats it all. Finally a food he loves, and as well as my 13wk old mini Aussie!! Also love ordering from chewy for everything!!! Great Company!!!

  • Earthborne Holistic

    By on

    Has been a good food for us. Have gone through quite a few more expensive brands (Orijen, Acana, Fromm) and just never really saw enough of a difference to warrant the price. Earthborne Holistic has provided all the same results and been less expensive. Until I have a reason not to or there is a recall I will continue to use this.

  • Great food

    By on

    Thisfood was recommended by the breeder as it was what he was giving our English Springer Soabiel. Prior to discovering this, we had already determined we would be giving our new puppy Earthborn as three members of our family use this brand of dog food. It's reassuring to know they aren't in the news for having any recalls.

  • Best Dog Food

    By on

    We have been using this dog food brand for over 5 years. It was hard finding a dog food that didn't make our dog have the runs. I don't know many stores that carry this brand and it's also nice having the dog food delivered by this company. Overall, I am very happy with this product and the services of this company!

  • Good food bad size

    By on

    My dog loves this food and I love it means 3 regular poos a day instead of 5-6! But this large bag size is so full of food "dust" it's not worth the trouble. The smaller bags have almost no broken pieces or "dust" so I'd suggest sticking with those. There's little savings in the big size anyway.
