Please note that all foods are assigned to only one "Specialty" category. Therefore, some foods also appropriate for adult pets, or other life stages, may be found within the “Sensitive” category.
California Natural Grain Free formulas feature short, carefully crafted ingredient lists, intentionally avoiding grains that may cause sensitivities in some pets. Our formulas offer unique protein and carbohydrate combinations that aren’t commonly found in other diets—and we never add gluten or white potatoes. With valuable levels of fatty acids for healthy skin and coat, you can trust our grain free line to provide the nutritional solution that’s right for your pet.
Complete nutrition from just a few ingredients—it’s that simple.

I have a highly allergic dog, cows milk, potato, fish, carrot, oatmeal. FINALLY I found this limited ingredient with the unique protein that she LOVES. Thank you for the redone ingredients from me AND Koda!1
My dog did great on this food, until the peas were exchanged for lentils and the size increased. He now hates eating his food and he's always dry vomiting during the day. The food smells different too. Please change back to the original. What a horrible thing for a dog to have to deal with.4
I joke that my bulldog is allergic to life. This is one the only dog food she has been able to tolerate for a long period of time without developing a bowel issue or yeast infection and I have tried every major grain free brand out there. My only complaint is that it's costly, but I do know that grain free foods are. Highly recommend this dog food for other "bubble dogs" out there!5
My dog is allergic to poultry, grains and anything fishy. Since I started him on this food, he's so quiet, it's scary. No more frantic scratching and ear infections. He seems to like the taste and it smells good too. Please, please, since California Naturals has been bought out, don't change the formula!1
This was the perfect dog food until the lentils were added. Now my dog can no longer tolerate it. I had to switch to an entirely different brand. I would like you to bring the pea free formula back. Thank you.

Commonly referred to as Typical Nutrient Analysis (NA), this describes the nutrient content that a specific pet food formula is expected to achieve based on data from the formula database, or in some cases, from an actual laboratory assay. The goal in posting the Typical NA is to provide nutritionists and veterinarians with information that can aid in the treatment of clinical problems such as a cat with struvite or in working with overly obese dogs to prescribe feeding amounts and diet choice for the animal's success.
