Discussing Questions And Answers About Dog Food Made With Turkey

Helen asks…

EVO dog food…………….?

I need help choosing an EVO dog food. There are sooo many. Which EVO product did you choose and why or how did you decide to choose that one? Also do you know if EVO and Innova are the same brands? Sometimes I hear people call it Innova EVO and some just say EVO by itself.

Jimmy answers:

EVO is a branch of Innova, which is made by their mother company Natura Pet.


Some years back it was called Innova EVO, recently they changed the food’s slogan and bag art, and changed the name to just EVO. It’s the same food though, made by the same people.

My oldest GSD, Hannibal is on EVO Weight Management because he has a tendency to get chunky just by looking at a cookie.

Orion, my allergy GSD is on the new EVO Herring and Salmon formula and doing very well.

My GSD Sirius, and Rottweiler Tron, are on the EVO Turkey and Chicken formula because the Red Meat was too rich for them.

APBT’s Kraven and Renegade, and Belgian Malinois, Spock are on Innova Large Breed puppy food still.

Because EVO is not properly formulated for large breed puppy growth. The calcium:phosphorus ratio and protein level in EVO is too high for large breed puppies, so my dogs eat Innova Large Breed puppy until they are about 18 months old.

Susan asks…

Does anyone know anything about this dog food?

It is called Eukanuba Naturally Wild
The food nature intended.
It is made with 100% real Venison,Salmon or Turkey as the number 1 ingredient.
Formulated without meat by products or corn.
Is this a good food has anyone tried it?
Which flavor would a dog be most likely to eat?

Jimmy answers:

Yep, I know it’s crap.

You can read reviews of it here: http://www.dogfoodanalysis.com/dog_food_reviews/showcat.php?cat=all&stype=1&si=eukanuba+naturally+wild&perpage=12&sort=2&stype=&limit=&cat=all&ppuser=

A bunch of fillers is not “what nature intended” dogs to eat.

Meat as a first ingredient can be misleading. Ingredients are listed by weight, and meat is about 80% water, so once the water weight is removed, a whole meat, like “venison”, isn’t even in the top 5 ingredients. (If it would say “venison meal”, that is the meat with the water content removed.)

Here are some good dog foods:
* Artemis
* Blue Buffalo
* California Natural
* Canidae
* Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul
* Eagle Pack Holistic Selects
* Fromm
* Innova
* Merrick
* Nature’s Variety
* Orijen
* Solid Gold
* Taste of the Wild
* Wellness
* ZiwiPeak

Charles asks…

i gave my dog some of the turkey i made for thanksgiving. It’s that ok?

i just gave him part of the breast so it doesn’t have to much fat. I’m still saving the neck and giblets of the turkey for him. can i feed him that

Jimmy answers:

Yes you can give your dog some turkey and even a little gravy. When placing the meat in your dog’s bowl, be sure to remove all pieces of bone. Dogs and turkey bones aren’t a good combination. Just like chicken bones, turkey bones splinter and can cause blockage or perforation of the intestine.

Also use caution when feeding your dog turkey skin. It’s great for a treat, but too much can cause a case of canine pancreatitis. Canine pancreatitis causes severe diarrhea and vomiting which can lead to dehydration. Other symptoms include: severe pain, refusal to eat, crying, weakness and irritability.

You might discover the dog is allergic to turkey (signs are itchy skin, itchy ears), but that could happen with any food.

Be careful if you feed him the neck as it will be difficult for you to remove all of the small bones. Please see the attached for further information
