Please note that all foods are assigned to only one "Specialty" category. Therefore, some foods also appropriate for adult pets, or other life stages, may be found within the “Sensitive” category.
Except for when a mother is nursing, no other stage of life requires as much energy and nutrient intake as growth. Innova Puppy Food is high-protein, wholesome nutrition formulated to meet the unique needs of a growing puppy. Each bite is packed with real turkey and chicken to meet a puppy’s increased protein and energy requirements. Innova Puppy Food provides complete and balanced nutrition for this important phase of your dog’s life while using healthful ingredients from the five food groups—protein, dairy, vegetables, fruits, and grains.

Commonly referred to as Nutrient Analysis (NA), this
set of data describes the nutritional content that a specific
production lot(s) of each formula contains from an actual laboratory
assay*. The goal in posting the NA is to provide nutritionists
and veterinarians with the information needed to assist in the
selection of appropriate diets to help with the treatment of
clinical concerns. In addition, this information is available
for all consumers to reiterate that Natura is committed to leading
the industry by providing in-depth analytical information on all
of our products.
* Please note that the inherent variability in laboratory analyses can have significant effects on nutrient contents. (This statement is from the AAFCO Analytical Variation section.)
