We had Hondo on Innova LB for several weeks, and noticed two things:

1) Constant loose stools that rarely improved with yogurt, pumpkin, etc. (now thinking after reading threads that this was due to use of the adult formula, and he is only one and a half years old, was unaware at time of purchase that the puppy formula should be used up to two years of age).

2) His teeth were disgusting! Nothing else changed in Hondo's diet (treats, etc.) but his teeth were so gross with tarter and plaque buildup. We have a neighbor on Innova, whose teeth are also pretty unhealthy. Has anyone noticed this?

Yes I noticed it when Geddy was on Innova. I just chalked it up to poor dental genes.

I should add too... don't worry about using the adult formula before 2 years of age... many ppl make the switch at 6 months... and some breeders even only feed adult right from the get-go... never even putting the pups on puppy food.
