Petcurean Now Fresh dog food?

Hey guys, today at the store where I buy dog food I was given a sample of Petcurean dog food, the NOW FRESH All Breed Adult version.

Here is the website:
http://www.petcurean.com/for-dogs/now-fresh/

I had never heard anything about this food - anyone know anything about it?

We've used it before and the dogs did well. It was recommended to me by a berner breeder that I respect alot. She had used it for a long time and has very healthy, long lived dogs. Couldn't find it locally though.

I'm feeding it to my girl right now. I had never heard of it til about 8 weeks ago. I needed to switch my dog to a lower protein food - and had decided, after much research, on Fromm. When I got to the store, and started talking to the girl there, she asked if I knew of Petcurean. It's Canadian, which I liked - and the ingredients list is pretty amazing. When I compared the two, I finally went with Now Fresh because the protein was lower than Fromm. It is really expensive, but it seemed like the right food. My dog transitioned to it fine - her poos are a bit bigger, but otherwise, she is doing as well on it as she was on Acana. I like the smaller pieces of kibble for her. Chewing big crunchy things is getting a little tougher to do with her 12 year old teeth.

any other reviews for this one? I noticed they had an adult grain free and a large breed grain free. Do goldens really need large breed formulas (I heard that's just a marketing ploy)? Anyways, curious how others like this food.

It used to a be a pretty popular food out here when it first came out. It's still readily available at all pet supply stores.

I had my cat on the cans for some time but they didn't have a grain-free back then so I stopped. I remember thinking it a bit overpriced for what you get - at least here it is.

Depending on how much it is now I'd give it a try for the dog for sure if I was switching.

It looks like an awesome food. I've heard good things about it from the healthy pet store owner. I'd be inclined to try it if I made a food switch.

No dry dog food is worth $3lb let alone one that is a 26/16 food.

Save your money. This food is a typical marketing department food. Puts lots of ingredients in it to make it look substantial.

If I were to feed a Petcurean food, I'd look at their GO line first as the NOW is very potato/carb heavy, especially at the reported costs.

For those that want a grain free, moderate protein and moderate fat product that does not include meat meals or animal fats, NOW FRESH is a good choice. True it is not made like alot of other foods are made, but that's what makes it ideal for alot of dogs, including mine. I prefer the less processed route. The ratios of meat protein to carbs is similar to feeding raw when you take into account the water contained in raw meat.

How are the foods processed? I thought I read something about extrusion...
