The Ancestral Diet Meets Modern Nutrition
The EVO line of pet foods have been specially designed to provide all the key nutritional benefits received from the feeding of raw food diets but with the benefits of 21st Century nutritional research. EVO Reduced Fat Dry Dog Food contains 30% less fat than regular EVO Dog Food but with 20% MORE protein. Recent studies have shown that high protein, low fat diets help to build lean body mass while still achieving weight loss (weight loss occurs until an equilibrium of muscle to fat is reached).
Only the highest quality turkey and chicken, including the meat, cartilage, fat, bone and connective tissue attached to the necks, backs and wings are used in the making of EVO Reduced Fat. Whole fruits and vegetables are added to supply important, health promoting nutrients that dogs would find foraging for food. Live, naturally occurring microorganisms are then gently sprayed on after the cooling process.
Low Carb, Hi-Protein and Grain Free.
At Natura, they understand that it isn't always possible to feed your pet a raw diet. EVO is a convenient, complete and balanced supplement to a raw feeding program.
EVO...What to feed when you can't feed raw.
Animal feeding tests using AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials) procedures substantiate that EVO Large Bites Dry Dog Food provides complete and balanced nutrition for all life stages.EVO Grain-Free Dog Food and Cat Food
Just as in the human world, an overabundance of high-calorie carbohydrates in a pet food diet can lead to obesity, diabetes and overall listlessness. Yet, many pet food companies continue to use grains and grain by-products as the foundation for their pet products.
Many pet owners have made the move to a raw pet food diet as an alternative to traditional pet food products to reduce carbohydrates while supplying the protein their active pets need. EVO pet food is your ideal partner for this lifestyle. Our protein comes from fresh meat, not cooked grains. In fact, our dry foods are comprised of up to 42% protein-rich ingredients while our canned foods are up to 95%!
EVO is the perfect supplement to raw and homemade diets, or, as an alternative when this type of preparation may not be convenient or possible.
If you like the idea of feeding raw pet food, but prefer a gently cooked food that provides benefits that match raw, frozen or home prepared high-meat pet diets, EVO Pet Food® is the answer.
EVO is the first grain-free ancestral diet that provides the benefits of modern nutrition in a safe, convenient and cost-effective natural food. Use EVO alone or as a supplement to your raw or home cooked pet food for a complete and balanced natural feeding.

Shouldn't pets eat healthy, too?
Feeding Your Pet in the New Millenium
Innova has been formulated using only fresh, natural, wholesome ingredients from each of the five food groups. Naturally nutritious fresh chicken and turkey meat, plus high quality chicken meal, provide the foundation for Innova's great taste. But we didn't stop there. Fresh whole milk, cottage cheese and whole clove garlic add natural vitamins and flavor. Alfalfa sprouts help satisfy your pet's natural urge to graze. Natural cold-pressed sunflower oil provides the high quality fatty acids needed for healthy skin and a shiny hair coat.
Innova recipes are based on the most advanced research in animal health. The latest findings in orthomolecular medicine (the study of optimal amounts of substances, especially vitamins, found in the body to achieve optimal health) convinced us to increase the levels of disease fighting antioxidants - Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E - in Innova's one of a kind formula.
Preservatives? Innova is preserved naturally with vitamins C and E... and nothing else.
Farm Fresh Ingredients
Innova contains only fresh, natural, wholesome ingredients from each of the five major food groups - providing a balanced, nutritious and varietal diet for your pet. Natura Pet Products' innovative cooking methods combine fresh turkey and chicken meat, fresh fruit and vegetables and a variety of natural whole ground grains to create petfoods unequalled in healthful, nutritional benefits.
Compare Innova to any other petfood. We're sure you'll agree that there's a healthy, significant difference.
Health Foods from the Basic 5
Natura Pet Products is proud to offer petfoods prepared with a wide variety of healthful ingredients from each of the five basic food groups: fresh lean meats, wholesome fruits and vegetables, natural grains, vitamin-rich potatoes, milk and cottage cheese.
Variety is the key to meeting your pet's many nutritional needs. Innova's healthy mix of nutritious ingredients assures a balanced and enjoyable meal every time.
The Dairy Group -- Cottage cheese provides plenty of nutrient-rich calcium, protein, and vitamins A and B.
The Protein Group -- Protein is an integral part of your pet's diet. And Innova's fresh turkey, chicken and herring meats bring more to the food dish than just good flavor - they are lean, excellent sources of protein. High quality meat protein provides all the essential amino acids required for the proper nutrition of both dogs and cats.
The Vegetable Group -- A bounty of fresh vegetables are found in Innova petfoods: carrots, Idaho potatoes, alfalfa sprouts and whole clove Gilroy-grown garlic (high in selenium). These vegetables add the antioxidant vitamins A and C, carbohydrates, fiber and various minerals to the diet. And because these vegetables are fresh, whole, and not pre-processed, the flavors and most of the important nutrients - including the "protector" antioxidants - are locked in.
The Fruit Group -- There's now a new twist to the old axiom about apples: "An apple a day keeps the veterinarian away!" Apples - and the nutrients in them - help your pet stay healthy. The fresh, whole apples used in Innova petfoods provide important "protector" nutrients, as well as plenty of carbohydrates and fiber, essential for your pet's good health. The antioxidant vitamin C helps to form healthy new cells and heal wounds. Potassium promotes neuromuscular development. And the antioxidants beta-carotene and vitamin A aid in good vision, bone and tooth development, and building resistance to infections.
The Grain Group -- All of the grains in Innova pet foods are natural whole grains, with the exception of Innova EVO which contains no grain. These grains are important sources of B vitamins, carbohydrates, iron, fiber, and selenium. Innova's nutritious barley and brown and white rice provide important complex carbohydrates to support pet activity and exercise.
Look at Innova's Ingredients: Turkey, Chicken, Chicken Meal, Herring, Apples, Garlic, Potatoes, Alfalfa Sprouts, Carrots, Cottage Cheese, Milk, Eggs
In addition to these fresh ingredients, Innova contains:
Whole Ground Barley and Whole Ground Brown & White Rice. These are quality grain sources of highly digestible carbohydrates.
Sunflower Oil and Chicken Fat. These are ultra high-quality sources of fat... chosen for their skin & coat properties and are rich in linoleic acid!
Chicken Meal and Herring. Innova contains only low ash, ground chicken meat & whitefish that provide high quality, highly digestible protein and omega 3 fatty acids.
Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Lactobacillus Casei, Bifidobacterium thermophilum, Enterococcus faecium fermentation product. These beneficial, friendly, bacteria are naturally found in the digestive tract and must be maintained at optimal levels as we age. A sufficient population of these viable naturally-occuring micro-organisms provide healthy B Vitamins and help to optimize the micro flora in the gut.
Vitamins E, C & A (Beta-Carotene), Selenium, Zinc, Manganese. These antioxidant vitamins play a vital role in protecting body cells from the damage caused by chemicals and environmental pollutants such as cigarette smoke, exhaust fumes and smog.
When comparing Innova to your favorite brand, please take special care to notice the following ingredients which Natura Pet Products refuses to use: Meat Meal, Animal Fat, Poultry By-Products, Soybean Meal, Rice gluten, Wheat Mids, Peanut Hulls, Wheat Flour, Wheat Bran, Rice Flour, BHA, BHT, Ethoxyquin, Artificial Colors or Flavors, or any other substandard, low quality, by-product from human food processing.
Natura Pet Food Product Testimonials
We are constantly receiving compliments on his full, soft, gorgeous coat!
I am so glad to finally find a dog food so nutritional. My dog used to be the pickiest eater ever and now he gobbles up his food every day!!! I have told many people about the excellent results it has brought us.
We are constantly receiving compliments on his full, soft, gorgeous coat!!
It is nice and reassuring to find a quality food such as Innova! I tried home cooked meal and it worked well for awhile -- but with my busy schedule I couldn't keep up -- I still feed some home cooked things as a treat -- but this kibble was my answer!
My dog's coat also looks fantastic. People ask me how I get his coat to look so shiny. It's your food!
I love your Innova dog food. I have a high energy 11 month old Australian Shepard, who ate other foods which all upset his stomach. He used to vomit or have diarrhea quite often, probably because of the poor ingredients. He now eats Innova dry and wet and loves them both!
Thanks for making a quality product for people who really care about what their pet eats. He loves it, and I love knowing he's not eating unsavory by-products and grease. My dog's coat also looks fantastic. People ask me how I get his coat to look so shiny. It's your food! Thanks again.
Samatra D. , WA
Our veterinarian has told me every time we've been in for Sam's check-ups that he is a beautiful, lean, strong, healthy dog.
We were given a Yellow Labrador Retriever puppy on Easter 2000. Sam was born March 3, 2000 to full-blood Lab parents. Since the day we brought him home, we have fed him Innova Puppy and Innova dog treats. Our veterinarian has told me every time we've been in for Sam's check-ups that he is a beautiful, lean, strong, healthy dog.
All my friends tell us what a beautiful coat Sam has and how smart he is. We are proud that our very first dog member of the family is strong, healthy and beautiful. We will be Innova product enthusiasts for life!

He is doing fabulously on your food. I recommend Innova to all my friends with pets.
I want to tell you how glad and thankful I am that I found your Innova Dog foods. Three months ago our 10 year old, male, Weimaraner Chris was diagnosed with bone cancer. We decided to treat Chris naturally and that is where your Innova Senior Dog food comes into play. After much research I have come to realize that all the processed foods we feed our pets do them no absolutely no good. Because of all the chemicals and processed foods, the natural benefits to food have been taken away from our pets. This is one of the reasons that there are so many more cancer cases in our animals today. The fine people at the Red Barn Feed and Saddlery in Tarzana, CA and the Whole Dog Journal gave Innova an excellent rating. With the staff at the Red Barn, I selected Innova Senior for Chris. He is doing fabulously on your food. The oncologist we consulted did not believe that Chris would be here today. Innova is part of that success. I have since changed over our 2 other dogs to Innova Senior. I recommend Innova to all my friends with pets.

My dog also loves the health bars. We take some with us when we go on walks as an energy bar when he starts to get tired.
I have been feeding my Whippet puppy Innova puppy food since he was brought into my home and I can honestly say that his coat has never looked healthier. At first I was feeding him Purina puppy chow but I found that his coat was dull and his skin was flaky. My friend suggested that I try Innova and right away I noticed a difference in his overall appearance. I have since told friends to switch to Innova.
My dog also loves the health bars. We take some with us when we go on walks as an energy bar when he starts to get tired. Overall I think that the Innova products my dog uses have proven beneficial to his health and his appearance. I definitely recommend Innova products to my friends who have dogs.
We can all look forward to a happy healthy life now that we are eating a good healthy and nutritious food.
Hi, we have been using Innova cat food for about a month now and we just love it. Not only that but our coats are looking better than ever. We all (4 of us) have beautiful shiny coats and our eyes look very clear and healthy.
We just want to thank you for coming out with such a wonderful food for us. We can all look forward to a happy healthy life now that we are eating a good healthy and nutritious food.

His coat is becoming shiny, the dandruff is disappearing, he is running around like a kitten!
Hello! I started using your cat food just a month ago, and already I can see a difference in my cats. One cat has suffered from dandruff and excessive shedding for a long, long, time.
Repeated trips tot the vets and all kinds of supplements did not help. I decided to try your product on the recommendation of a P&A Foods in Doylestown, PA. His coat is becoming shiny, the dandruff is disappearing, he is running around like a kitten! He is 11 years old.
I'm impressed. Keep up the great work. Your product is worth it!
Loretta S. , New Hope, PA
I read the list of ingredients on your web site. I was impressed, especially that Glucosamine, and Chondroitin were listed as ingredients -- good things for the older cats.
I have 4 cats ranging in age from 1.5 to 10 years. For a number of reasons I decided to change from Iams to another premium cat food and Innova Lite was recommended.
Before purchasing I read the list of ingredients on your web site. I was impressed, especially that Glucosamine, and Chondroitin were listed as ingredients -- good things for the older cats.
However, my gang has taken finicky to new heights and when I have tried to change the food in the past, all have gone on a hunger strike! However, I am surprised (amazed actually) that all like the food, even Kadi. Trust me, that is the ultimate compliment to your food!

Now, after eight weeks, to touch them is to feel them as they were when they were puppies... and acting like it, too!
Our four dogs are beloved family members in our home. This year I finally took the time to research the rumors I'd been hearing about pet food ingredients. Since I am a librarian by profession, believe me, I was thorough. The result of that research was that I could not get our dogs into a healthier diet fast enough!
Eight weeks ago we changed our dogs over to California Natural from Nature's Recipe Herding Dog and Toy Dog formulas. The bigger dogs now have coats that literally sparkle! Our shepherd is involved in therapy work and senior citizens can't touch him enough! The biggest improvement involved the coats of our terriers. In only 7 days, we were commenting that they were feeling softer and shedding less!
Now, after eight weeks, to touch them is to feel them as they were when they were puppies... and acting like it, too! We've witnessed a phenomenal transformation!
Your product is worth every penny and I have been recommending it to everyone.

About two weeks after switching, the hot spots started getting better. A couple of weeks after that, they disappeared.
Annie is a 5 year old Golden Retriever who is a big part of our family. We have had problems with hot spots ever since she was a puppy. We tried Hot Spot Spray, Fish Oil, switching the food, blaming it on our warm weather in the summer, keeping her dry, etc. trying to get rid of them.
We found California Natural Lamb and Rice kibble, wet food and biscuits. About two weeks after switching, the hot spots started getting better. A couple of weeks after that, they disappeared. We have been holding our breath, but so far, "success!"
We just wanted to let you know, and also our vet has been recommending it to every Golden Retriever's mom and dad in town (even though he sells another brand). Thank you for making a natural food for our Annie.
Since I switched to Cal Nat he has increased energy, shinier coat, and has lost weight.
I just wanted to let you know that about a month ago I switched to California Natural Reduced Calorie. I have a 4.5 year old GSD/Border Collie Cross with a weight problem.
I have tried numerous diets and with limited success. Best case was maintaining his weight at a constant level. Anyway, since I switched to Cal Nat he has increased energy, shinier coat, and has lost weight. He is also more mischievous. But I guess you have to take the good with the bad. He is a different dog.

I had trouble finding a food that didn't make her sick, until your food! She does great on it!
I wanted to let you know how much I LOVE your California Natural Chicken and Rice dry dog food! I have a Bull Mastiff/Rottweiler mix breed, female, 3 years old. She's a great dog but she has a very sensitive stomach and I had trouble finding a food that didn't make her sick, until your food!
She does great on it! No stomach problems anymore! Her coat is shiny, she grew back hair that she had lost on her stomach for 2 years!! WOW!
Donna V. , San Jose, CA
My dog Madeline absolutely loves it!
I just wanted you to know how happy I am to have found a wonderful organic dog food. My dog Madeline absolutely loves it! Are you going to be coming out with a canned organic dog food? Madeline and I really hope so!!!
The results were amazing... her lifelong battle with diarrhea stopped within 24 hours and hasn't returned even once.
I've never written a "fan letter" for any product before, but I'd like to take this opportunity to compliment you on your California Natural adult dry cat food (chicken and rice formula).
My cats enjoyed fairly good health, with the exception of my one female, Leia. Since almost dying from a mysterious illness at the age of six weeks, she's been troubled by severe digestive problems, including constant diarrhea and very frequent vomiting.
Things changed dramatically, however, when I borrowed a cup of California Natural Adult Cat food which my neighbor gave to her cat. After one sniff she gobbled it all up, not leaving a crumb for her brothers and howled for more. The results were amazing... her lifelong battle with diarrhea stopped within 24 hours and hasn't returned even once. Likewise, her vomiting has also ceased almost completely. Moreover, she is livelier, more frisky and playful and she's obviously enjoying life more fully.
Thank you again for making such a fine product.

It's a great food and to find a good quality food that this many dogs will eat with gusto is great!
We have a fifty dog kennel and during the last few years, we fed Science Diet when we bought the kennel. We soon switched to Sensible Choice at our feed dealers suggestion. The dogs still left more food than they ate and we continued to throw away food. We gradually switched the dogs to Nutro Max and found a lot of stool problems.
At my veterinarians suggestion, we switched to California Natural and Innova for my own dogs and cats. They did so well, I looked for a distributor and found Amato's. I discussed with Rich the problems we had with the kennel diets and he suggested HealthWise. We started to use HealthWise in the kennel about 2 months ago. The transition was smooth and rarely, if ever do I have to throw food away.
It's a great food and to find a good quality food that this many dogs will eat with gusto is great! Not to mention the tremendous decrease in food that gets tossed in the garbage daily! Thank you for yet another great food for my furry friends!

I even had people aproaching me after the show to ask me what I was feeding him!
I couldn't wait to tell you about my recent events! My dog Sampson is a 2 1/2 year old rottweiler. I have been feeding him Innova since he was 3 months old. I had tried many, many different foods from the day I brought him home such as lams, Avoderm, etc-He would not touch these foods unless I mixed various canned foods, gravy, rice, so on and so forth. Finally, a woman I befriened at Western Feed in Carmichael, CA advised me to try Innova. Well, that solved my problem. The minute I put Innova in his dish, he ate it all! That was a couple of years ago and to this day my dog still loves his Innova. In fact, sometimes I even use it for bait in his training lessons!
Now here is the real exciting news, ..... with the encouragement of my breeder, I tried showing my Sampson these past few months and here are the results... Sampson is now an International Champion, multiple VI (german rating V=excellent l=first place) rated dog! The critiques(five) that he has received all comment on his excellent coat!
I even had people aproaching me after the show to ask me what I was feeding him! Sampson also took first place in the "Best of Breed" category! Thank you so much for your Innova, Sampson loves it.
I would also like to add that Sampson has never had any skin problems. When I was breeding rottweilers years ago, every one of my dogs got "hotspots". I wish I had Innova then! I truly believe in your Dog food!!!

Natura was a life saver!
Sayde was a stray, found not far from where we live. She had on a leather collar but no tags. No one came to claim her at our Dane County Humane Society. I had been looking for a German Shepherd to adopt; it's our favorite breed and I had been making weekly visits to the Humane Society.
One day I came across Sayde there. She looked pretty pathetic and scary. She had a severe bite wound on the shoulder that became infected and had to be debrided and several tubes placed for drainage. Sayde also had bite wounds on her ears which left some permanent scars inside each ear. During all this it was discovered after opening her up that she had already been spayed.
So when I saw her at the Humane Society, Sayde was bloody, shaved, underweight, had a bad coat and still had stitches and tubes in her. When I looked at her through the kennel door she was laying down and just looked at me sadly. I spoke to her softly and she grumbled, but I saw something in her eyes. I went back two weeks in a row and watched her recover and would talk to her and she would talk back. No one showed interest in her.
I told my husband about her and he wasn't as enthusiastic about her. We went to look at her together and she still looked really rough. The counselor took us all in a room and we interacted with Sayde. Not knowing her well, she came off VERY independent, vocal and a bit bossy. I was sold right away. I could see the intelligence there and ability to want to learn. My husband took her for a walk alone and came back in love with her!
The other problem Sayde had was REALLY BAD flatulence. Ugh. I have taught Sayde all basic verbal/hand commands. Sayde likes other dogs that are laid back as long as its just one on one, no groups. Her adoption anniversary is in April and it will be two years. We believe Sayde is about 4 1/2 years old and a German Shepherd/Chesapeake Bay Retriever Mix.
She has recovered completely, but has a sensitive digestive system and it took a lot of research on my part to figure out what foods she couldn't tolerate. Natura was a life saver!

I am EXTREMELY happy with how she does on this food.
I have a four year old Dalmatian named "Ella" and she's been getting Innova Senior food for more than two years. I am EXTREMELY happy with how she does on this food. Her weight is always stable, her coat is perfect and totally odorless, her eyes and her personality are bright and clear. Just about everyone who meets her asks me what I feed her. She just looks flat out fantastic. Also, she still seems happy with how it tastes. She is very happy and energetic.
Recently, on TV, I saw a segment about weight problems with doggies. I have to wonder what some of these unfortunate dogs are being fed. Likely, it would be similar to people living on donuts. When I walk Ella I often see other dogs stools and wonder what they eat. They're horrible unhealthy looking specimens. Ella's are small and solid and show that there is little wasted in what she eats.
I could go on for paragraphs bragging about how gorgeous this dog looks. That was in no small part done with your help.

His coat is very thick and feels wonderful. He eagerly eats all his food and is rarely sick. He obviously feels great!
Sam will be 10 years old in December. For the first 6 years of his life, he was extremely healthy. He only went to the Vet for shots. Probably the only complaint I had about Sam was that he was always a little thin. He was a pretty picky eater. He'd nibble and leave his food, come back and nibble again but not really eat too much. Keeping weight on Sam was a challenge.
Then, at the age of six, he was diagnosed with loss of kidney function. He had to go on a lower protein diet. I tried Science Diet KD, Purina Pro Plan Lite, Nutro Max Senior, etc. He absolutely hated the Science Diet and would barely tolerate the others. He seemed to lose muscle tone and he lost weight. And, he would often seem to easily react adversely to stress by getting diarrhea, etc. He was no longer my healthy boy!
Last year, I switched Sam to Innova Senior. He has done very well on it. He weighs more than he has weighed in his life! His coat is very thick and feels wonderful. He eagerly eats all his food and is rarely sick. His blood tests are always normal. He obviously feels great! At Astro Hall this July, he took Reserve to a five point major! At 9 years of age!
His mother, Alta, is also on Innova Senior. Winter, my Special, and Baby, my new rescue American Eskimo, are both on Innova. All 4 of my dogs are Innova dogs! I think it's a

He is full of energy, fun and is bright eyed with a glossy coat. In fact the perfect picture of health.
I have the most beautiful Akita-Inu Puppy who is fed entirely on Innova Puppy food. The enclosed pictures show him at 10 weeks and when he weighed approx. 20 kilo. He is now 22 weeks and weighs 39.5 kilo with no signs of slowing down. He is full of energy, fun and is bright eyed with a glossy coat. In fact the perfect picture of health.
I have had dogs for over 30 years and heartily endorse your product.

Family and friends who have visited have remarked at his change.
I have had Beagle for 2 years. A friend's son found him emaciated, injured and howling for help. He called the ASPCA and Beagle was on death row. I took him in and love him but it has been a hard 2 years. His hyperactivity, which most (including vets) told me was the norm for beagles, was about to drive me nuts. I fed him large amounts of food (WD purchased at vet's office), yet his spinal bones were prominent. I was worried though blood work was normal
that there was something very wrong.
I have another dog who has immune problems and began to read about food nutrition and was HORRIFIED to learn what I was feeding my dogs (I have 4) as I strive to do and give them the best quality products/life. Subscribed to "Whole Dog" journal and learned about your product. It is either a great product or a miracle as my wild beagle is calmer and a healthier looking (Spinal bones no longer prominent) dog. Family and friends who have visited have remarked at his change.Sure he is still a little hyper...he is a beagle, but his over all affect is peaceful, contented and I know that it is his change in diet.
Forgive me for going on and on but you cannot imagine what a relief it is to have to this change occur..and to know that it occured due to a healthy change in diet and not due to tranquilizers that some suggested I give him.

With your California Natural brand of lamb meal and rice formula they eat ravenously, can't wait for another scoop and are now allergy free!
We have had our Westies for two years now and have had trouble finding food that they would eat with regularity. We've tried several different brands of Lamb and Rice formulation yet hadn't found a brand of food that would keep their bowels healthy or that they seemed to like.
In addition, they've developed the famous Westie skin allergies to food additives and fillers. We've had to treat them for folliculitus (an inflammation of the hair follicles) twice over the last year. But no longer. With your California Natural brand of lamb meal and rice formula they eat ravenously, can't wait for another scoop and are now allergy free! We have the canned, the bagged and the health bar products and they love them all. Thanks for producing such good products. So, Nicholas and Madison asked us to take their picture with your product and send it to you.

We decided to give it a go and had instant results.
We have a two-year-old male Shih-Tzu named Winston who, up until a month ago, suffered severe scratching and skin irritation. When I asked our local Pet Store owner what I should do, he instantly said that we should change our dog's diet. We were feeding him canned food. The Pet Store owner advised that California Natural is the best on the market and will eliminate any scratching or irritation. We decided to give it a go and had instant results. After two or three days, he started to eat his daily ration. From then until now we have had no further problems - and he looks terrific. I would recommend California Natural to anyone who wants to look after his or her pet and we will certainly continue to buy it. We have also recommended California Natural to our friends.

His coat is just beautiful and his energy level is great!!
Our Weimaraner puppy came from the breeder having been fed a puppy food that's well known. He was smelly and his coat was dull. Our Vet recommended California Natural Puppy. After 3 days on the California Natural my wife came home from work, picked up the puppy and said "Oh,you gave him a bath, he smells good!" I had not bathed him and the results are solely due to the California Natural!! His coat is just beautiful and his energy level is great!! We are customers for life!!

Lizzie has a lot of energy for a "mature dog" and I think that can be linked directly to her diet.
I just wanted you to know that my 12 year old Scottish terrier has been eating the California Natural and now the Reduced Calorie formula for about a year or more. The improvement in her coat, skin, and digestive tract have been a much needed and healthy improvement.
Lizzie used to lick and scratch herself incessantly which drove me nuts with frustration, trying to find the right food. Also, the only thing that veterinarians wanted to do was perscribe pills (usually steroids) and that was unacceptable to me because of various side effects.
Thank you for making such a fine, natural, healthy and beneficial pet food product. Lizzie has a lot of energy for a "mature dog" and I think that can be linked directly to her diet. Even the vet noticed the difference when she had her yearly check up.

She has been on Ca Natural for six months and is a whole new dog.
This is a thank you letter for giving my spoiled housedog a healthier, happier life. Ripley is a very loved dog. We have had her since she was tiny. She has slept in between my husband and I for her entire life. This is the dog I always begged for and dreamed about during my childhood.
She is a seven year old spayed German Shorthaired Pointer who
has been plagued by both inhalant and topical allergies all of her life. Her symptoms were itchy paws, chin, terrible yeast ears, inflamed itchy anus. Most of her life her paws and chin were bright red and hairless. Ripley's ears have been a big concern and kept us al up many a night with head shaking and scratching. We have put her on almost every type of dog food you can think of and medications. As you probably know, Veterinarians like the Science Diet and Waltham products, which only helped fuel these problems.
Animal Crackers Pet Supply in Corvallis Oregon is a big supporter of your products. Jim convinced me to give CA Natural Chicken and Rice a try. He said to give it six weeks for all of the old toxins to leave Ripley's body and that I would see a big change in my dog. Guess what? You have a fantastic product that my dog will eat for her lifetime! She has been on Ca Natural for six months and is a whole new dog. Her skin and ear problems are 90% better. I think she is a dog that will always have a few minor allergy problems but she is so much more comfortable and happy.
The biggest surprise was her increase in energy I She runs and acts like a dog half her age. Both my husband and I are amazed. I work at a Humane Society and tell all of the new owners about your food. From the bottom of my heart thank you! Keep up the excellent work. Be proud of your product - it is a good one!

We know that next time Joss goes into the show ring, the "Health Bars" will be used as the bait of choice.
I have a 7 month old German Shepherd show pup by the name of Joss. Joss was at his first show 2 weeks ago, and his handler had prepared fresh cooked liver with garlic to use as "bait" in the show ring. Joss turned his nose up at the liver and refused to eat it. He was busy trying to stick his nose in the pocket of my jacket and all attempts to have him bait for the liver were met with a complete lack of interest.
I had forgotten I had some of your "Health Bars" in my pocket, but evidently, Joss sniffed them out! We quickly squeezed them down to a "bait size" and they worked beautifully!! Joss took first place! We know that next time Joss goes into the show ring, the "Health Bars" will be used as the bait of choice.

His coat is thick and shiny now and he has put on weight and looks and feels great!
I have a cat who is 21 1/2 years old and was dying of anemia just 6 months ago. I switched him from Science Diet cat food over to your Innova cat food and he has miraculously recovered and is doing so well. His coat is thick and shiny now and he has put on weight and looks and feels great! He no longer seems to suffer with the arthritis in his back legs anymore either. It's truly a miracle and I attribute his recover and good health to YOUR FOOD!
The vet can't get over that he's still alive since his bloodwork was so dismal and she had actually given up on him, and I expected him to die any day. I even started writing about him and was going to put up a page on my web site in his memory. I've saved it and thankfully don't have to put it up yet as I think he's got some more time left to be with us.

I am happy about all the healthy ingredients in your cat food.
I am very pleased to write you, telling you that I am very content with your products (Innova and Innova light). I am happy about all the healthy ingredients in your cat food, above all that it does not contain any artificial chemical substances such as preservatives and is prepared only with antioxidant vitamins.
I have two Maine Coon cats (now 4 and 3 years old) from a club for protection of animals since last year. Since that time I was looking for healthy cat food. It is very difficult to find it (even in special pet shops offering numerous kinds of cat food). All food products usually contain artificial chemical substances such as preservatives, and in canned food even sugar. However, thanks to new media such as Internet, I was fortunate. In March, I found a supplier of your products in Munich, about 200 km away from my home.
I am really grateful to you and happy with your cat food and I wish you all the best for the future.

I'm so glad I finally found a food that makes them happy and is so healthy for them.
I wanted to share my story with you. I have three spayed, female cats. There names are Pooh, Lizzy, and Bella Mia. Lizzy and Pooh are 14 years old, Bella Mia is 8 months old. I'm one of those people who believe in feeding my cats only the best food available. For years, my two older cats have been eating Pro Plan cat food. When we got Bella, we fed her Pro Plan as well, believing it was the best.
A few months ago, Lizzy developed a food allergy. Her fur was always shiney and soft. I noticed the luster wasn't in her fur anymore and her skin and ears especially were very dry and cracked. My vet suggested trying different food. I tried only the best, Eukanaba, Iams, Science Diet, etc...Nothing seemed to work. They weren't real happy with any of the above mentioned foods they tried. I visited a pet store in my neighborhood that I don't go to often, Leone's Animal Supply. On the counter, they were offering free samples of your brand of cat food. I thought I'd give it a try. They absolutely loved it.
I'm so glad I finally found a food that makes them happy and is so healthy for them. They look so forward to they meals now. (I use the dry food). When they see the bag, they run to the bowls. I'm so glad I found this food. I think your product is great and just wanted to share my thoughts and thank you for caring enough to make the very best!

Gershwin has not had an infection for several months now, and he just LOVES your food.
I wanted to get back to you regarding feeding Innova Lite Canned food to my cat Gerswhin, whose had a history of recurrent Urinary Tract Infections. I chose Innova over prescription diets because I find the quality of the ingredients in prescription diets (as well as most other non-prescription cat food, too!) questionable. The levels of Mg, Ca, P, and Ash in Innova Lite Canned Food are as low as in the prescription foods, so my vet approved of feeding Innova over what she had originally recommended.
The results thus far are encouraging. Gershwin has not had an infection for several months now, and he just LOVES your food. I can definitely see and smell a difference in the quality of Innova over other brands of canned food.
Thank you for caring about the quality of the food that cats eat!
