Default california natural dog food

Is this as good as the Innova Evo, or the same? I am confused because we are running low on Evo and Hannah loves it but on the Innova website when I was doing a search on how much to feed on each of their lines of food I actually feed less of the california natural then the Evo. Is that food as good as Evo? Hannah will eat and enjoy anything so if this is the same is the cost the same or more expensive. Thanks!

CN is definitely a high quality kibble. I feed it to my puppy, when he does get kibble, and he loves it. The ingredients are just as high quality as those in Evo, because they are both made by the same company. CN is more of a simplistic kibble, note the lack of veggies & other additives that almost any kibble out there contains.

CN is a high quality food, but it contains less meat (and thus more plant protein and carbs) than the Evo.

Evo will always be more expensive since it has a much higher meat content and only contains around 1/4 the amount of carbs than traditional kibbles, which do contain grains.

I'm confused though is it better or the same? We bought Hannah more Evo when we went to the store today but they have the CN as well too and that was cheaper. I just figure that I will keep her on Evo though since she likes it and I have noticed she sheds less on this than other foods we have tried. We got her the Evo canned too and Canidae and Eagle Pack treats.

It's not so much a question of which is the "better" food as what is right for your individual dog. These two products are so fundamentally different that it is very hard to make a fair comparison.

In regards to ingredients, all Natura products are top-notch though.
