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.
