Natura and P&G Questions
(Huntington, WV, USA)
I was just wondering three things.
1) Why not drop Innova dog food from your recommendations only if P&G change the food?
2) P&G already makes Iams and cheaper dog foods, so why would it buy Natura if it planned on cheapening the product and producing more of the same?
3) How will consumers know if and when P&G changes the Natura product formula?
I am happy with Innova and would like to continue using it IF
the product maintains its quality.
Hi Louis -
These are three great questions! Thank you for writing in.
Please take a look at our In-depth "Study" on Procter & Gamble and Natura Dog Food.
We've included a lot of reference materials and information which clearly shows just some of the factors we took into account while making our decision. Be prepared for a lot of eye-opening reading!
In a nutshell though, we can pretty much answer all three of your questions with the following one answer ...
We, personally, have no respect for P&G and its past business antics. We consider them an unethical and untrustworthy company. Their history speaks for itself, and we believe it would be irresponsible to ignore this, and leave them at a top dog food rating. Our former 5 Scoop ranking was based on products manufactured by the "former" Natura Dog Food Company - a company with a proven excellent reputation.
We are highly doubtful that us consumers will EVER
really know what P&G is up to behind closed doors -- with Innova dog food and all the Natura brands!
That's our personal opinion and, of course, everyone needs to do what they feel comfortable with.
We stocked up on a few extra bags of our pup's Evo dog food before the sellout ... and now we're moving on! No use in crying over spilled milk :-(
It's certainly a very sad event but remember, there are many other premium dog food choices.
And it's always good practice to rotate between dog food brands and formulas anyway.
Thanks again for your questions.
