Earthborn Primitive Natural Grain Free Dog Food (5lb - 56lb)
Earthborn Holistic® Primitive Natural™ Grain-Free Dog Food
Before conventional dog food, your dog’s ancestors relied on their instincts and hunting capabilities to capture raw, protein-rich food. Today your dog relies on you for food, but that doesn’t mean his natural diet has to change. Dogs still crave animal nutrition, and grain-free Earthborn Holistic® Primitive Natural™ is formulated to provide the taste he loves and the nutrition he needs for physical well-being and good health.
Turkey meal, chicken meal, and whitefish meal provide high-quality protein sources. Carefully-chosen fruits and vegetables, such as apples, blueberries, carrots, peas, and spinach, complete the balance to give your dog the nutrition he needs. Formulated without grain or gluten, this special formula is ideal as a high-protein, grain-free alternative diet.
Primitive Natural™ promotes lean muscle mass and body conditioning, with L-carnitine that aids in converting body fat into muscle and energy. Balanced Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids play a vital role in establishing the lipid barrier of the skin, supporting your dog’s healthy skin and coat.
Made with our high-quality ingredients and processing technology, Primitive Natural™ provides excellent digestibility and nutrient absorption. Primitive Natural™ is 100% guaranteed for taste and nutrition for dogs at all life stages.

Earthborn Holistic® Primitive Natural™ Dog Food: Feeding Guidelines
To control your dog’s food intake, we suggest you use the chart below as a guide. 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® Primitive Natural™ dog food, mix increasing amounts of Primitive Natural™ 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® Primitive Natural™dog food before your puppy at all times. Most puppies will satisfy their nutritional needs as their appetites dictate.
