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.

Comments about Primitive Natural:
Sometimes I feel bad writing reviews for dog food because my bullmastiff has a sensitive gut, sensitive skin, is skinny and will eat anything. With that said...I'll try my best.
I changed to this from Meadow Feast because of its higher protein and fat content. My bullmastiff pup is growing fast, has a wicked metabolism, and needs CALORIES! It worked; he gained some meat on his bones (all his ribs disappeared) and his skin, coat, and ears all smelled/looked/felt better. In fact, he smelled way better than he did on Purina and slightly better than he did on Meadow Feast.
Poops: smaller, no smell, solid...BUT they were green. The overall health of the dog was awesome, so the green poop wasn't a worry, just was weird.
The food lost a star because (remember he has a sensitive belly) I couldn't feed him much on any one sitting. If I fed him the littlest over 2 cups (even 2.3 cups), he'd have diarrhea. If I fed him any more than 5.5 cups in any given 24 hour period, he'd have diarrhea. In contrast, I could give 6-7 cups of Meadow Feast, and 2.5 cups on any one sitting without any problems. I just made a wild guess and said it must be the higher fat and protein content that he's having trouble breaking down; OR the Primitive kibble is smaller and therefore denser (i.e. a cup of Primitive has more food than a cup of Meadow Feast which has larger pieces). Nevertheless, he gained weight even with all those limitations.
I've also been using probiotics, joint supplements, and coconut oil. So I cannot be sure how much of the effects were due to the food.
Value: excellent! Second only to TOTW. Great food for a price that makes sense.
