Innova Dog Food is one of the better products on the market in terms of variety and in terms of protein content. We have given Innova one of our very top ratings as a reflection of their high quality offerings. No product is perfect for every dog at every stage of his life. Innova understands this, and they have crafted a wide range of products to address the varying needs of dogs as they develop. Their dry foods have eleven different varieties. Four of them are custom designed for all life stages and have met the strict standards set by the AFFOC. Two of their dry products are perfect for the needs of a growing puppy, and five of their dry kibbles are specifically for adults.
If your dog prefers wet food, they offer seven different types of canned dog food. All of their foods contain a healthy and tasty mixture of meats, grains, and vegetables. Many of the Innova Dog Food products also contain chicken meal which is an excellent source of protein for your best friend.
Reviews for Innova dog food tend to be extremely positive. It contains no fillers or hard-to-digest ingredients, although it may trigger sensitivities in dogs who suffer from grain allergies. Additionally, it contains only real turkey and chicken supplemented with high protein chicken meal and no by-products. It also contains a number of sources of sustaining omega-3 fatty acids, including flaxseed, herring and chicken fats, all of which are quality ingredients when found in dog food. It also includes fiber and beneficial carbohydrates in the form of barley, rice and potatoes. The formula includes a number of probiotics and chelated minerals for easy absorption, making up for the nutrition lost during cooking and processing. The food contains moderate levels of protein with average levels of carbohydrates and fats, making it an appropriate formula for most dogs. For the level of quality and nutrition offered, the price point is reasonable, although obviously more expensive than formulas with lesser quality.
