    Your welcome.
    Just to add, and this is probably the most important factor about EVO, they use whole animals in their ground meat. So you're feeding bone, cartilage, etc., not just muscle. AND they bake their food at a low temperature so the heat doesn't kill all the nutrients like in most other foods.

    Minor, I've gotten the same results over from Canidae. I have never been so excited about my dog's poop, lmao. Are you feeding regular Innova or EVO?

    My dog's coat is SOOOO much softer, she hardly sheds anymore (and she has a shepherd-type coat!) and she rarely gets gas anymore. It used to be when she had a bully stick (which is somewhat often) she would get the runs for about 2 days, now she's consistent. I couldn't be happier with the switch to EVO. Our cat is doing great on it too. He used to get chronic UTI's but now is great, and also has stopped shedding. He's a finicky eater (so much so that he lost 5 pounds on Felidae) but he LOVES this food and has gained some weight. He was a bit pudgy at 13 lbs so I think he's perfect at 9, maybe 10.

    Okay, I just read through my post again and I need to correct myself. Suprise, suprise, lol. They don't use whole animals, or at least not to my knowledge. I didn't mean beaks, feet and feathers too, lol, just that they use more than muscle meat. :o

    Yeesh, another food update from me. In the last few months we've gone from Canidae to Nature's Variety and now we're going to try Taste of the Wild. It's around $1 a pound with the old man's discount which is easier to keep up with than NV. My dogs weren't doing well on the "new and improved" Canidae after like 2 years of doing great on the old formula.

    Mr. Torres, rumor has it that dogs have died of malnutrition eating Ol' Roy. Don't know if that's true or not, but we fed that crap waaay back in the day, and our dogs did horribly on it. Massive poops, greasy coats, lots of gas. Just no good.

    I have heard that the original canidae formula is not as good. but my dogs coats and poops actually improved on the new lamb and rice formula. the ratio of meat to grain actually changed to include more meat by percentage because they added "lamb" when it was only "lamb meal" before.

    and on the breeder program i pay the equivalent of $33 for 35lbs

    Nah. The original fomula was better. They're telling you it's "improved" so they can convince you that it's worth it paying more for a smaller bag. LOL! After 2 bags on the new formula, my dogs were still making yellow soft serve. That's just a bad food, IMO.

    I have never fed the original canidae. . only lamb and rice. and i can say that my dogs didnt have soft poop one day with the change. we blended the new bag into the old and they did fine.

    they have been on it since the change and ive watched them closely, because i was worried i'd need to change to something else, but they have improved.

    my dogs are pooping less than before, they are shinier and their poops are more solid. that is results i have seen. . but again on lamb and rice.

    everyone's dogs are different i suppose. . but 6 dogs and no problems, only improvements. and one of my dogs is horribly allergic to wheat but no issues with the change either.

    I work as a pet nutrition specialist, and not for canidae, but it's my business to know about the ingredients and what ramifications they can have etc. . . in my opinion the lamb and rice canidae has proven itself to be no worse than it was before the change, especially since my dogs continue to do great on it.

    Well, to each their own. All I can say is that all 3 of mine never adjusted to the change. I'm no nutritionist, but I know when something's not right. Interestingly enough, we had to do a high-speed switch to TOTW because we were almost out of NV, and we haven't seen a change in their stools yet. Firm and dark. I'm more than a little impressed (and relieved) at that.
