May 5, 2010 - Very Sad News!
EVO Dog Food now in the hands of the manufacturer of Iams and Eukanuba dog food, and ... shampoo, potato chips, batteries ... ??!
We are keeping our noses to the ground. Sadly, upon finalization of the acquisition, we will be dropping all Natura Dog Foods from our 10 Best Dog Food List. We will also revise our dog food ratings accordingly.
You may wish to stock up on your Evo and other Natura Dog Food brands now, before it's a done deal.
Who knows what changes they will make to their dog food ingredients? Personally, we are not at all optimistic!
EVO dog food is manufactured by Natura Pet Products, based in Santa Clara, CA.
The Natura dog food brands are general very highly regarded, and among the best quality dog food on the market. They are consistently featured in the Whole Dog Journal's list of approved dog foods.
Natura produces their products at their own plant in Fremont, Nebraska, where they utilize an outstanding testing and quality control program. Their manufacturing certifications include: AIB Certification, APHIS Registration, ISO 9001:2001 Rating, and Organic Certification.
Natura produces human grade dog food, which is hormone and antibiotic free, and void of artificial chemical preservatives, additives, and by-products.
The dog food ingredients are locally sourced, or come from reputable countries such as New Zealand. The Nutra representative told us they do not import any products from China.
EVO is a low carb, high protein, grain free dog food. The product is rich in vitamins and chelated minerals, and Omega three and Omega six fatty acids. The food is comprised of up to 42% protein, making it one of the highest protein and nutrient-dense dog foods available.
