Earthborn Holistic

Earthborn make some decent foods, and I believe this is one of the best. It’s grain free which is great, the ingredients are well chosen, and it’s also relatively cheap! The protein in this food is around 38% which is evidence there’s a decent amount of meat content in the food.

The main ingredients are turkey meal and then chicken meal. Both are excellent protein sources and it’s not often we see two meat meals in the first two ingredients. Potatoes are a solid inclusion for carbs and are easily digestible to dogs. We find chicken fat and whitefish meal, both are good sources of vitamins and omega fatty acids as well as the latter adding a protein boost. Egg product is also included as a further protein source, but that isn’t as good as seeing whole eggs in the food.

There’s a range of fruits and vegetables which is good to see. The minerals are all standard sources compared to brands like Canidae and Artemis that seem to use slightly more digestible variations.  I won’t complain though, as the food is very good as a whole. Especially for the price.

Earthborn certainly holds it’s own as a five star food, making this one of the cheapest decent food available. Recommended.

 


What’s good about this food….

Great meat ingredients of a high quality and protein analysis to prove it. Good choice of carbs, vegetables, fruits.

….and what’s not so good.

Egg product and tomato pomace aren’t wonderful, but this is a small point.
