PostSubject: Earthborn Holistic Great Plains Feast for 7 month old puppy?   Tue Oct 16, 2012 11:01 am

I just switched my nearly 7 month old puppy, Maya, from TOTW High Praire Puppy formula to Earthborn Holistic Great Plains feast. Does anyone have any experience with this formula? I liked the fact that bison meal was the first ingredient in the Earthborn great plains feast. I was told that any "meat- meal" has a much higher protein content then simply the meat itself, or "deboned" meat (which supposedly is much higher water content). Is this true? I was also told that this formula is approved for all life stages because it contains DHA. Are there other specific nutrients I should be looking out for that are important for a puppy's development? I did a comparison and the Earthborn Holistic Great Plains feast contained a significant amount more of DHA than the TOWT High Prairie Puppy formula.

Any feedback would be appreciated! Thanks!

EDIT: I forgot to mention that Maya is an extremely picky eater. I mix in a quarter can of Merrick brand grain- free wet food (generally I go for the "Smothered comfort" which contains whole chicken thigh with bone). Since switching over to the Earthborn, I haven't had to use as much canned food to get her to eat! She gobbles it right up! In fact, when we were weaning over, she would pick through and eat all of the Earthborn kibble and leave behind some of the TOWT kibble.

Hi Maya
Kira is 1 year old girl, and we have had her for 4 weeks now ( shelter rescue adopted husky). We started her on earthborn Coastal Catch. For dinner we give Kira half a cup of Earthborn Coastal Catch dry and about 200 to 300 grams of home cooked meat veg rice so she gets a mix of both. I dont know if its too much or too little. She weighed 21 kg at last vet check two weeks ago, he she is ok weight wise and what we are giving seems to be fine She is due for a visit to vet this Sat for a checkup so we will see how things are going.

In the mornings for breakfast she also gets a handful of coastal catch dry. We always have fresh water available for as she likes a drink after eating the dry.

She loves Coastal Catch and she seems to digest it well. No soft stools or other issues. No problems at all. Havent tried anything else yet. I did read on high quality dog foods and according to the DOG FOOD ADVISORY website, Earthborn dry dog food has 4 out 5 star rating which is very good. I dont know if other husky owners feed earthborn but so far so good with Kira.

Also noticed her coat is becoming softer and shiner, could be the fish meal with all the omegas that is making her look better these days.

Kira also has only healthy treats no commercial off the shelf treats in supermarkets, I have read there is alot of crap in them. I always go to pet shops that provide only natural treats, like liver chews, dry chicken treats kangaroo, shark cartiladge sticks. I always check what is contained in the product, I stay away from any product that contains fillers, meat by product. We want to make sure Kira stays healthy for life. My last husky lived to 15 years of age. Never got sick in all her life except later, unfortunately she contracted cancer of the blood in July this year (Leukemia) she was 15 and the vet said he didnt know how this could happen but it can develop at late stage in life.

Hopefully others hear will respond to you. Also Earthborn have a facebook page, you could also post and ask questions there to.

All the best with your little one.
