Though I haven’t tried the brand myself (yet), I have several friends who use Earthborn Holistic and they only have nice things to say about it. Here on DogfoodAdvisor their puppy food hasn’t been reviewed (which is a bit of a bummer), but they have scored very high marks with most of their labels, especially with their Primitive Natural Grain-Free dry dog food which received a perfect score on here.
I also want to point out that the Earthborn Holistic brand has NEVER had a recall and they specifically exclaim this on their website. All and all it sounds like a great dog food brand that deserves an Editor’s Choice nod.
Wow I did not know that!
I live in California and in my county you are required by law to have your dog vaccinated against rabies. In addition, you are required to get your dog licensed 30 days after the first rabies vaccination and you must renew the license every 1, 2 or 3 years.
Curious… do you not go to the vet at all? Because most if not all states require (by law) that dogs need to be registered and you cannot register a dog without a rabies vaccination.
True, but with a healthy diet you can still prevent a lot.
I have a 12 week old puppy and I use to feed him Blue Buffalo Large Puppy Life Protection formula by itself… then he started sticking his nose up at it. I would take it away and give it to him at the next meal time and he would eat a bit and then do the same thing. I didn’t think it was a health issue, just that he didn’t like his food. I bought Wellness CORE puppy and when compared to Blue Buffalo’s food it smells a lot better (Blue Buffalo doesn’t smell like much). For the last week I have been mixing Wellness CORE into his Blue Buffalo food and he eats nearly everything except for a couple of Blue Buffalo kibbles. I have heard similar stories with Orijen with the food smelling really good and I am assuming that if the food smells good that a puppy / dog will find it more appealing.
Vets will never admit it, but I think they get a lot of support from the big dog food companies (i.e. money, free samples to give to customers, etc). I really like my vet, but he recommended Science Diet because of the “science” behind it, but he said at the end of the day give my puppy what he likes because it doesn’t really matter. How can dog food with bad ingredients be the same as dog food with great ingredients? I do not understand that logic at all.
When it really comes down to it, all dog food is processed (unless your dog is on a raw diet), but if you look at a lot of the big name brands of dog food it is basically just processed crap. There are arguments on both sides, but I 100% believe that if you give your dog premium dog food with good ingredients, that they will be healthier and happier.
Well I am not sure about pig ears, but cow ears are usually 100% imported (usually from Brazil) because of US restrictions. That being said, it doesn’t really matter where you get either of them because there is a lot of data that these types of chews aren’t really safe for pets (not a lot of info on cow ears, but there is a ton of info on pig ears). I gave my old dog pig ears, but apparently they aren’t all that healthy for him (or safe) which would be some of my top concerns for my puppy.
Wow, thanks for the info, I am definitely avoiding those!
Yeah, but isn’t yeast (like Brewer’s yeast) used in flea and tick prevention?
