Earthborn Holistic Primitive Natural is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for all life stages, excluding growth of large size dogs (70 lbs. or more as an adult).
Taking care of your dog’s overall health starts by feeding him properly. We suggest using this chart 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 to your dog’s diet, 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 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.

Why Grain-Free Dog Food?
Grain-free vs grain dog food… How do you pick one? All of our grain-free dog food recipes are also gluten free which make them great options for dogs with grain or gluten allergies. If you’re looking for a high protein grain-free dog food recipe, Primitive Natural is a great choice and is also crafted with L-Carnitine to help burn fat and maintain lean muscle mass. Added essential vitamins and minerals make this grain-free recipe great for adults or puppies.
Superfoods for Dogs
When it comes to healthy ingredients for dogs, superfoods are at the top of our list. Sweet potato, blueberries, apples, and pumpkin in dog food are all examples of healthy foods for dogs that come together with high quality meat proteins to help create a complete and balanced diet. Fruits and veggies aren’t just for humans–fruits and vegetables for dogs are just as helpful as a part of their daily diets and make for healthy additives to dog food. No need for any artificial additives when you have things like the benefits of apples and the benefits of carrots to keep your dog or puppy happy and healthy.
