Hip & Joint Support

Trace minerals such as copper, calcium, and Omega -3 fatty acids in Native are essential for keeping bones strong, fighting inflammation, and regulating bone and cartilage regeneration and thickness which can lead to greater performance.

Antioxidant-Rich Nutrients

NutriVantage® Nutrition Optimizer® for Dogs

An exclusive blend of organic macromolecules, trace minerals, antioxidants, and chelating agents provide optimal nutrition supplementation for the digestive tract.

Perfect Paws

Paw pad thickness is vital to the overall performance of your canine athlete. Optimal levels of the specially complexed bio-available zinc, copper and manganese have been shown to enhance paw pad thickness and integrity.

Meat Protein vs. Meat Protein Meal

Many pet food companies promote their products as chicken or meat sources at significant levels. Such protein sources may be 75 percent water or more. So, when moisture is lost during the pet food production process, the level of actual meat remaining is substantially less.

For Native performance dog food, chicken or lamb meal is the preferred protein source and contains less than 10% water – meaning the level of actual meat remains high and is truthfully the first ingredient on the label after processing.


For digestive health and immune system support.

Omega-3 and Omega-6 Fatty Acids

Essential for normal immune activity and skin, coat, and nail health.
