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:

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.
