Earthborn Holistic Large Breed Grain-Free Dry Dog Food is hot extruded (which means it's processed under extreme heat and pressure) and made with feed grade ingredients, which are unfit for human consumption. It contains 29 synthetic additives (so it is not all-natural), it has 3 anti-nutrients including Peas, Tapioca, and Pea Fiber (which may interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients), and it has 1 other sketchy ingredient, Natural Flavors.

Warning In June 2019, the FDA implicated Earthborn Holistic's dog food in at least 10 cases of Dilated Cardiomyopathy (or DCM), a potentially fatal heart condition.
