Earthborn Puppy Dog Food (5lb - 56lb)
Earthborn Holistic® Puppy Vantage™ Natural Puppy Food
Puppy Vantage™ offers optimal holistic nutrition, which fulfills the special needs of growing puppies. Puppy Vantage™ contains DHA, a type of long-chain Omega-3 fatty acid that is present in concentrations in brain and retinal tissue and aids in healthy brain and eye development and function in puppies.
Puppies are always on the go and they need energy for growth and play. We use wholesome, nutrient-rich carbohydrates such as sweet potatoes, brown rice, oatmeal, and barley, because they are easy on your puppy’s digestive system and important for his overall good health. Real chicken meal and whitefish meal are high-quality protein sources that support the development of strong, lean muscles and provide necessary energy for growing puppies. Balanced Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids play a vital role in establishing the lipid barrier of the skin, supporting your puppy’s healthy skin and coat. Proper levels of calcium and phosphorous help ensure the right mineral balance for building strong teeth and bones.
Made with our high-quality ingredients and processing technology, Puppy Vantage™ provides excellent digestibility and nutrient absorption. Puppy Vantage™ is 100% guaranteed for taste and nutrition for puppies.

Earthborn Holistic® Puppy Vantage™ Natural Puppy Food: Feeding Guidelines
Puppies begin to eat solid foods at three to four weeks of age. They should have free access to solid food from that time until weaning. You may continue to keep Earthborn Holistic® Puppy Vantage™ before your puppy at all times. Most puppies will satisfy their nutritional needs as their appetites dictate.
If you prefer controlled-portion feeding, we suggest you use the chart below as a guide and divide this amount into the desired daily portions. Allow your puppy 15 to 20 minutes to eat the portion and then remove the food. These amounts are averages; portions will vary depending on the breed and activity of your puppy.
Earthborn Holistic® Puppy Vantage™ may be moistened with water if desired.
To assure proper fetal development, milk production, and weight, feed gestating and lactating adult dogs two to three times as much food as recommended in the adult daily feeding guide for the weight of your adult dog. Amounts and averages will vary depending on the breed and activity of your dog.
