Natural Pet manufactures California Natural Dog Food for dogs with food sensitivities, so the ingredient list is kept simple and pure, even after the company was bought by Procter and Gamble. California Natural Dog Food gets our highest rating for the high quality ingredients that their food uses – only excellent whole food ingredients – no fillers.
The dry and canned food are manufactured in the U.S. and most of the food is from the U.S and is human grade. The two ingredients that do not come from the U.S. are the venison which is from New Zealand, and some of the vitamins components which are from Europe. California Natural is an excellent choice for a store bought food—it probably is as close as you can get to cooking your own dog food at home.
Reviews of California Natural dog food by other dog owners are generally positive. The formulas seem to work very well for dogs with allergies, with many dog owners reporting an improvement in symptoms. However, the fact that Natura Pet Products was purchased by Procter & Gamble caused many dog owners to report that they stopped purchasing the food. Procter & Gamble has a bad reputation among many pet owners, which was echoed in many reviews. Up until that point, though, the customer reviews have been outstanding.
The company who makes California Natural dog food is called Natura Pet Products. Natura Pet Products was first founded in 1992, and is currently headquartered in Fremont, NE. In 2010, Natura Pet Products was purchased by Procter & Gamble. Natura Pet Products is now a business unit of the Procter & Gamble Pet Care Division.
In March 2013, Natura recalled specific formulas of California Natural dog food due to Salmonella found in one of the products. Please read about the recall on our blog. On April 19, 2013, Natura expanded the recall for all dry food and treats.
Since recall information may change regularly, it’s always best to search the FDA’s pet food recall list, in order to ensure that your dog’s food formula has not been involved in a recall. We will always do our best to keep you posted on the latest in recall news.
