WELCOME TO THE FOOD GROUP - This group was started in an attempt to present well-researched and FACT-based information on the amazingly complicated and confusing issue of feeding our dogs. There are also many issues we would like to explore. We thought it would be helpful to put all of these questions, information, and feedback into one place here on DK where everyone can find it, contribute to it, ask questions, and learn together.
WE ASK THAT YOU NOT POST ANY RECOMMENDATIONS FOR PRODUCTS FOR WHICH YOU RECEIVE ANY TYPE OF COMMISSION OR COMPENSATION. THANK YOU.
IMPORTANT-PLEASE READ "FOOD GROUP GUIDELINES" BEFORE STARTING A NEW DISCUSSION.

oops meant Now Fresh LOL, I didn't look further than Petcurean, should have looked at the foods in it.  Sorry

Comment by Karen and Jackdoodle 14 hours ago

It is on the list. It's not "Fresh Now", lol, it's Now Fresh, and it is made by Petcurean, so that is what it is listed under. The brand. 

Comment by Peri Kolakowski 14 hours ago

Wondering why Fresh Now is not on your list

Comment by Karen and Jackdoodle on November 3, 2017 at 4:47pm

I'm so glad Wynnie is enjoying her new cuisine! 

Comment by Wynnie & Jim on November 3, 2017 at 3:55pm
I just switched Wynnie to Wild Calling medley (lamb, salmon and duck) grain free -dry. I also mix in some wet Rainbow River (Salmon). She has turned from a picky eater to an enthusiastic eater. Thank you Karen for your food recommendations.

Thanks!

Comment by Karen and Jackdoodle on September 19, 2017 at 4:44pm

You remembered right, Deb. The Six Fish treats contain only 3 kcal each, the Original and Duck treats have 4 kcal each, and all of the other varieties have 5 kcal each. 

Comment by Deborah Brown on September 19, 2017 at 4:29pm

I might be imagining this but I seem to remember someone saying that Orijen freeze dried treats had only 3 or 5 calories.  I think it was because they are puffed up with air.  Does this sound familiar?  I don't want to pass this along if its not correct.

Comment by Mark Wilson on September 18, 2017 at 7:11pm

Understood.

Comment by Karen and Jackdoodle on September 18, 2017 at 5:16pm

And perhaps Helga could respond to your question in the raw feeding group as well. :)
