NOW Grain Free

NOW Fresh Grain Free Puppy Recipe Dry Dog Food

Has anyone tried this food, and if so what kind of results have you had with it?

I found a website that has priced it wrong, and is selling their 25lb bag for the 6lb price. Ingredients look good on it, and dogfoodadvisor lists a similar food as 4 stars.

Ingredients are as follows...
De-boned turkey, potato flour, peas, potatoes, whole dried egg, pea fibre, tomato, apples, flaxseed, canola oil (preserved with mixed tocopherols), natural flavour, coconut oil (preserved with mixed tocopherols), salmon, de-boned duck, sundried alfalfa, carrots, pumpkin, bananas, blueberries, cranberries, raspberries, blackberries, papayas, pineapple, grapefruit, lentil beans, broccoli, spinach, cottage cheese, alfalfa sprouts, dried kelp, calcium carbonate, dicalcium phosphate, lecithin, sodium chloride, potassium chloride, dried seaweed meal, vitamins (vitamin E supplement, L-ascorbyl-2-polyphosphate (a source of vitamin C), niacin, inositol, vitamin A supplement, thiamine mononitrate, d-calcium pantothenate, pyridoxine hydrochloride, riboflavin, beta-carotene, vitamin D3 supplement, folic acid, biotin, vitamin B12 supplement), minerals (zinc proteinate, ferrous sulphate, zinc oxide, iron proteinate, copper sulphate, copper proteinate, manganese proteinate, manganous oxide, calcium iodate, selenium yeast), taurine, DL-methionine, L-lysine, dried chicory root, dried Lactobacillus acidophilus fermentation product, dried Enterococcus faecium fermentation product, dried Aspergillus niger fermentation product, dried Aspergillus oryzae fermentation product, yeast extract, yucca schidigera extract, marigold, L-carnitine, dried rosemary.

I've heard good things about it. Would be worth a try if the price is that cheap 25 lbs for 6 lb price

I feed Go! grain free and i really love it! My dog is doing so well on it, and it was recommended to me by a person who owns 4 of Saph's relatives. All 4 of her dogs were doing well on it as well.

Would you be able to share the website? It would be nice to be able to donate a good bag of food to the SPCA instead of the Walmart stuff my budget is limiting me to this year.

Now is a big seller in my store. My dogs do not do to well on it dull coats and LOTS of poop. I had much better results with there go! Fit and free (also grain free).
Worth a shot if its cheep. We sell at big bag for $67

Some of our greatest historical and artistic treasures we place in museums; others, we take for walks.

Sorry I didnt check back until today. The site I found it on was petfooddirect.com, I just checked again and the pricing is back to normal. I as able to get 6 bags, and being in ND, they will be stored frozen through the winter. I'll have to find space in my freezer come spring. So far she's been doing well on it, although she seems to prefer to sneak TOTW out of the adult dogs dishes. And vise-versa, they want her puppy food. They never cease to amaze me.

It's a good food and many dogs do really well on it, but my dogs did not. The amount of poop was disgusting, as was the smell, and my guys had to eat a lot of it (compared to other brands) to maintain a good weight.

My uncle's Doberman however did exceptional on it.

Ingredients are as follows...
De-boned turkey, potato flour, peas, potatoes, whole dried egg, pea fibre, tomato, apples, flaxseed,

^^^^ My concern is the first ingredient is not turkey "meal" so this ingredient actually slips down , in order...when 70% of the water, is dried out.
Then the second & forth ingredient is a form of flour &/or potato, not the richest diet either IMO.
