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!

  • Great dog food just not for our pup

    By on

    Rotated from 4Health and our labradoodle doesn’t like the taste as much, she likes ok but doesn’t love it. While this brand is top notch, great ratings, healthy, decent price we had one problem- it made her bottom smell like stinky fish ...I thought it was her glands - nope, they were fine, gave her a bath thinking maybe some ‘residue’ was in her hair- nope didn’t fix it. I noticed after a few weeks of feeding when I’d open the bag to scoop some out that it kinda smelled fishy- that same stinky smell. We won’t be buying again for that reason. It stinks. We switched to Nutrisource chicken and rice, hoping it does better.

  • Great dog food

    By on

    This is a great dog food with wholesome, human-grade ingredients and balanced, complete nutrition at a reasonable price. Earthborn is an American family owned company out of Indiana with no affiliation to pet food mega brands. Earthborn has a UPCs for trees program so each UPC code you collect and mail in equals one new tree planted in the Earth. This is an awesome company that really cares about the environment and providing complete, quality nutrition to your furriest family member. I would recommend this brand to anyone.

  • Just Right

    By on

    I purchased this brand to change from Orijen puppy food and to introduce regular dog kibble. As Orijen is no longer available from Chewy and the fact that I am 100% satified with ordering through Chewy, I decided to switch over to the Earthborn Holistic brand. In order not to have tummy issues, my dog is fed half puppy and half Earthborn and will then switch totally to Earthborn. She is prefering the Earthborn and leaves some of her puppy kibble in her bowl. That gives a good indication that she is very happy with Earthborn.

  • Allergies to the world

    By on

    My baby is allergic to everything. It is hard to find food for her that is affordable (we have 5 rescues; 3 of them doxies, including this one, 1 basset, 1 mix). Her previous food was d/c and i found this one. I would have given the full 5 stars but she is having trouble adjusting to the change. She is allergic to just about everything there is and her tummy gets upset with everything.

  • Wonderful food for your dog!

    By on

    I had to switch my German Shepherd's grain free food and my Vet suggested this brand and type. I was a little leery about switching because my pup has a very sensitive system, but she adjusted to this food faster than I ever expected! She just loves it!

  • No more dog farts

    By on

    Great product. We've been looking for a food that would keep our Rottweiler's farts to a minimum. This stuff does it. We add warm water to help as well. I'd say she went from tootin' every 10 minutes to once every couple hours, maximum. And the severity of the cloud is much reduced as well. Life is much improved.

  • Excellent quality

    By on

    Not that I'm a dog nutrition expert, but this food came highly recommended. My dog loves it, and she is maintaining a good weight and is healthy. She has a somewhat sensitive stomach and handles this food perfectly.

  • Makes my dog regurgitate

    By on

    Not sure if they put way too much salt in this food or what but it makes my dog regurgitate after eating it. It's also made her extremely thirsty and it's only after earing this particular dog food.
