Over the last few decades, most dog food has basically looked the same: a hard, brown kibble. That image may come to mind today when dog owners open a bag of food, even when the dog food is completely natural. The contents of synthetic dog food bags may all look the same but opening our bag could be compared to opening a bag of grapes: they all taste the same but the look and shape may vary from grape to grape (actually, if every grape looked identical in shape and size, some people would find that a bit weird!). We were contacted regarding the variation in our food from bag to bag. Read below as we share a great question from a customer who carefully inspects ingredients and discuss how Carna4 is a totally unique dog food.
Good Morning – I just had a question about variations to expect from bag to bag of Carna4. Two days ago I opened a new 13 lb. bag. It smelled different from previous bags and the kibble looked different too – usually I can see more of the sprouted seeds and flax right in the kibble. So, I am just wondering how much variance to expect from bag to bag? Thanks for your time,
We’ve tracked your bag of dog food to the batch it came from. Like every natural product, Carna4 may vary slightly in color, consistency or smell —every apple is a bit different from the other. But the quality remains consistent, and in fact your batch has the best nutritional values yet as we have constantly tried to improve it. The batch your bag came from showed an increase of about 80% in live probiotic counts compared to previous batches (over 9 billion cfu/kg compared to 5 billion). Note: cfu is “colony forming units”. We also saw substantial increases in Omega-3 fatty acids and Vitamins E,C and D. We believe these improvements resulted from a very robust germination of our seeds, particularly the flax seed.
That being said, if for any reason you are not happy with it, please email stauble@carna4 and our owner, Dave Stauble, will personally replace that bag. Your satisfaction is most important to us.

Thank you so much for getting back to me! I tend to fret a bit over what I am feeding my dogs since they get nearly all their nutrition from one source – and we strive to make sure that source is complete and safe. After a little initial hesitation, they are eating from this bag just as enthusiastically as they had the bags in the past. I am reassured by the batch testing that you are able to refer too. I feel very confident in feeding Carna4.
Thank you for your response,
