About Innova

Feeding Your Pet in the New Millennium
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.

Health Foods from the Basic 5
Natura Pet Products is proud to offer pet foods 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 pet foods: 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 pet foods 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.

Innova's ingredients include: 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 and 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.

    We have been feeding our Pem Corgi puppy since we got her at 8 weeks old but slowly switching it the first month. She has never had any problem with this brand. She is active, healthy and has a very shiny coat. Would definitely recommend this brand.

      Transition takes some time

          Comments about Innova Puppy Dry Dog Food:

          I heard so many good things about Innova, and that's why I wanted Karamel to get the best niturition possible. I mixed her old food with Innova for almost a week, not just for 4 days (that was one of the recommendations I read online to have her a smooth transition). Although I made the transition slow, it took almost 3 weeks for Karamel to adjust her new food. During this time her stool was always soft and she was having gas with a very bad odor (!). However, after 3 weeks, she is not having any of those problems. She poops less (meaning digesting most of her food), and has regular stool. I highly recommend Innova but just be aware that sometimes your dog's adjustment might take a bit longer.

            Comments about Innova Puppy Dry Dog Food:

            I transitioned my two pups to Innova dry puppy food, first adding a little to their old food then slowly increasing the ratio of Innova to the old food until they were on Innova 100%. I have a Shepard mix (8 months old) and a Cocker Spaniel/Dachshund mix (9 months old). I do not over feed them and they are both very active.

            I researched this food carefully before feeding it to them. On paper, it's great. The reality is gas and diarrhea, at least for my dogs. Obviously, like people, certain foods agree or disagree with certain dogs. My Shepard mix got the worst of it, extremely loose stools and bad gas the entire time she ate this food. The Cocker/Dachshund mix had bad gas too but his diarrhea was intermittent. I had them on it for 10 weeks, adjusting the daily amounts and feeding times in an attempt to solve the problem before I gave up on it.

            Aside from the gas and diarrhea, they are very healthy and growing nicely and gaining weight normally. I wish I could keep them on this food because I know it is quality stuff. I don't blame Innova or the ingredients. Every creature is different.

            As an experiment at the end of the 10 weeks, I transitioned them to a grocery store brand (Purina Beneful Puppy - since I had some already) and they have been fine ever since. Now the search begins for a healthy, high quality alternative dry food for them because I refuse to feed them some junk with corn in it long-term. Not sure what I should try though.

            In support of the Innova line though, both of my dogs LOVE their HealthBar baked dog treats, with no ill effects.

              Comments about Innova Puppy Dry Dog Food:

              This is a great food with solid nutrition. My puppy had a lot of medical problems that my vet said were the result of having a poor immune system so I switched her to this innova within a couple of months she was is now happy and completely healthy. She loves this food and her coat looks great. This product may cost a little bit more per bag than brands that you can purchase from the grocery store but it is worth every penny and because it is so nutrionally dense, it takes less food to fill them up so this food lasts quite a long time.

                Great dog food. FYI to those who find it costly. Quality sometimes does not come cheap and nor are expensive vet bills that are more likely to occur when you feed cheap, poor quality dog food.

                Comments about Innova Puppy Dry Dog Food:

                Bought this food cause its a really good brand but my puppy had some serious break outs from it.

                Tried Wellness puppy got a little better but didn't start doing really well til I put her on California Natural. Now all is well.

                Her spots are looking wonderful and almost gone now.

                It is a good food but I guess there is something in it that didn't agree with my puppy.
                So just take this into consideration when thinking about this food.

                I would still recommend it cause if your dog can eat it with no problems its a good food.
                Mine just can't.

                    Our Cairn Terrier was 5 mos old (he's now nearly 7 mos) when I decided to try Innova Puppy Food because he didn't seem completely satisfied with the food he was on when we got him from the breeder. Now, he's happy and content after eating and ready for anything! He's filling out nicely and his coat is shiny and healthy, AND he's quit stool eating! I plan to stick with Natura products for him throughout his life!
