My first two Havs were on Innova (puppy first, then adult) and it was a little too rich for their systems. Whenever we had a major change in our routine (trip for the weekend, vaccines, etc.), we ended up with very loose stools for three-five days. Since I keep my dogs in a full coat, that was not a pleasant experience. I utilize three different veterinarians and started using Innova kibble based on the advice of one. The second vet informed me that even though the ingredients are very good, it may be too rich for a sensitive Havanese stomach. I left Innova (despite my agreement that I did like the ingredient list) and haven't had any loose stools (except for illness) in almost two years.
That doesn't answer your flax or wheat gluten question, but I just wanted to tell you about my Innova experience. I love the company, but no longer use it for my Havs.
