Default New Puppy - Confused about Innova Puppy vs Evo

Hi,

I've been reading alot of threads on the Innova foods. I'm sold, but I don't know if I should be feeding my puppy Innova Puppy or Innova Evo.

My new puppy is 12 weeks old. Currently eating Eukanuba lamb and rice. He is a 5lb Cavalier King Charles and is expected to be 15-20 lbs at full growth.

Any help would be MUCH appreciated!

since your dog is not a large breed, you could feed either innova puppy or innova evo.

evo is just not recommended for large breed puppies because of how their body is affected by overfeeding and high levels of minerals during their growth phase.

Thanks! I also got a response from Innova and they said it is okay. They also gave a recommended feeding chart. I hope he likes it.

He should like it. Mine prefer it to raw meat!

My cat, Mini, did not like it. She's a weird-o. I wet it for her for a few days and then she started eating it. She was a gassy baby too.

He's starting toe at it and he chows down. I am mixing 1/3 EVO, with 2/3 Eukanuba .. Today probably go 50/50. His stool is very mushy though. Not very solid.

I'd just go ahead and ditch the Eukanuba and go with the straight Innova. You might have a few days of loose stools while his systems detoxes, but it won't hurt him to get all that garbage out of his system.

Sounds like a plan. Probably go ahead and do that then.

you can also buy some canned pumpkin (pure pumpkin, not the pie filling mix with spices already in it) and give a teaspoon or so with each meal. it helps firm things up quickly.

Is the pumpkin a temporary solution until he gets used to the new food?
