Before getting into much detail regarding this brand, let’s first take a look at the term ‘holistic.’ When the you see the word, ‘holistic’ mentioned with dog food, it has to do with nutrition. Holistic dog food manufacturers claim their recipes are natural and one that doesn’t contain ingredients that are processed, artificial or provides little to zero nutritional value.


Proponets of holistic dog food believe that a diet consisting of natural, organic ingredients will supply their pets with overall optimum health. Because the term ‘holistic’ is not regulated by law, it is important that pet owners read the labels on all pet food products to ensure your pet is receiving holistic, natural ingredients. Let’s now consider Earthborn Holistic Dog Food.

From reading the ingredients, I can see that Earthborn Holistic Dog Food is a very good choice. I am one who always reads the ingredient list. What I truly like is that it contains REAL foods, like chicken, fish, and also quality fruits and veggies (antioxidants) which are so important in order for a dog to stay healthy. No chemicals or harmful ingredients, so this passes the test for me!

A formula for every stage of life, which is very convenient. I’m glad to know that this brand also makes a wet (canned) food as well as the dry.

Thank you for offering the information on this holistic dog food.

    Thanks Cathy, I appreciate the feedback. Earthborn Holistic is one that i would highly recommend for the reasons you just mentioned. Happy to hear that you are one who reads the ingredients list. So important!

    With the natural, real food ingredients in addition to the antioxidants makes this brand one of my top choices. Thanks again for visiting my site Cathy!

I think holistic is about as realistic in dog food as all natural as organic is in people food. The term doesn’t really mean much without making a careful study of the ingredients listed on the bag.

However, I can see that Earthborn Holistic dog food does indeed use a lot of natural ingredients such as real chicken, fish, vegetables, fruits and grains. Earthborn definitely seems like a great option for feeding family dogs.

And when it comes to wet or dry dog food, this slogan has served me well for a lifetime of owning both house dogs, and sporting dogs…Wet in wet out, Dry in dry out………..

    Luke · May 22, 2018 at 11:11 pm

    Thanks Mike for visiting my site. I would agree with your assessment regarding holistic, all natural, and organic foods. Without understanding and reading labels, we may not be getting what we are paying for. It took me some time myself to realize the importance of reading dog food labels to ensure my pet was receiving a quality diet.

    Earthborn Holistic does deliver on what it promises, as it does provide your pet with a healthy, natural diet that consists of ingredients that you have mentioned. Great slogan by the way! So true! Thanks again Mike.

Hi Luke. You always do such a great job of providing us with very nutritional dog food for our fur babies. I also like that you always break down what is best for the sizes of the dogs.
I know there are certain kinds of food that are supposed to be nutritional but dogs refuse to eat. I think that it might have something to with the flavors. But it sounds like Earthborn Holistic dog food makes sure to offer a good variety of many different flavors that dogs would enjoy. Thank you for sharing this brand with us and filling us in on the helpful information.

    Luke · May 22, 2018 at 11:02 pm

    Hi Melissa, and yes our dogs can be ‘picky’ eaters at times, so finding a food that they enjoy as well as being nutritious, can be a challenge.

    The fact that Earthborn Holistic offers a number of flavors, is nutritious, and is available to dogs throughout their lives makes it one of my favorites.

    Thanks for visiting, Melissa and I certainly appreciate your feedback.


Jeff · May 22, 2018 at 8:52 pm

Hello Luke,
You have amazed me with another impressing post onf dog food, I like Earthborn Holistic dog food especially since it is gluten-free which if gluten is not healthy for us whey would it be good to feed to our dogs. I will be considering this dog food for my dog, he is a very large breed, I sometimes find it difficult to purchase large breed dog food which is healthy as Earthborn sounds.

I can tell you care very much for our pets like they were your own

    Luke · May 22, 2018 at 10:51 pm

    Thanks Jeff and I am glad this article has provided you with helpful insights. I am a big fan of the Earthborn Holistic product and would highly recommend it to any dog owner.

    Very smart to stay away from gluten in dog foods, as it serves no nutritional value. Thanks again for visiting Jeff, and I wish you the very best with your large breed pooch.


Sheryl Cash · May 23, 2018 at 4:01 am

Very interesting Luke I only recently realized that it is just as important how our fur babies food is processed. What is the value of gluten? Why is it added to everything? I will tell my pet loving friends about Earthborn Holistic products.

    Luke · May 24, 2018 at 9:56 pm

    Thanks Sheryl. In terms of gluten, it is a protein that can be found in specific types of grain. In some cases, your dog may have some form of allergic reaction to it.

    I also would highly recommend Earthborn Holistic to any dog owner, it is a quality product! Thanks for visiting my site Sheryl!
