How it works:
Now Fresh Grain Free Small Breed Recipe was developed with veterinarians and certified nutritionists to ensure your dog receives the necessary nutrition needed to maintain an active lifestyle. It is slow cooked only once to preserve nutrients, which are typically lost in many commercially processed foods. Although other grain free dog foods may contain higher levels of protein, this excess is ultimately eliminated through your dog's urine, offering little to no benefit to your dog's health.
The Now Fresh Grain Free Small Breed Recipe is a unique blend created to address common health problems in small dog breeds such as tartar buildup, bad breath and digestive problems. Ingredients green tea, parsley, peppermint and the cloverleaf shaped kibble help clean teeth, maintain healthy gums, and eliminate bad breath. The digestive enzymes also help to make the kibble highly digestible.
Coconut oil is used in each Now Fresh Grain Free variety and assimilates directly through the stomach lining, which ultimately breaks down into simple sugars to be used as energy. Coconut oil is also believed to have antiviral benefits by reducing the risk of gastrointestinal issues (inflammatory bowel disease, pancreatitis, and food allergies).

Now Fresh Grain Free Small Breed Recipe
A big hit with my picky pooch!
My toy poodle is a very finicky eater. It took months for me to finally find this food. He LOVES it and has been eating nothing but this for about 2 years, He only gets the daily recommended amount for his weight and seems very satisfied with that. Also, he remains in good health and has not gained or lost weight since switching to NOW, So glad I found this brand.
not substantial dog food
My 2 year old dachshund was on Freedom by Blue Buffalo and she has always been healthy and never even close to having a weight problem. One cup a day of Freedom was always more than enough. My husband decided to buy a (HUGE!) bag of this Now dog food because he got a good price and it had good reviews and I have seen a change in my dog in just a couple of weeks.
My dog used to always get a half cup of food in the morning and she could have another half cup later in the day if she scratched at her dishes to let us know she wanted more. She rarely finished the second half cup. At her weight of 11 lbs one cup is how much she can have. With the new food she is constantly scratching at her dish. She is always begging for food. The problem is that with dachshunds you have to be very careful about their diets and you can't let them get overweight because of their backs. It makes me feel awful that my dog is eating the recommended serving size of food and she is still hungry.
I noticed my dog looking a little heavier than usual and I asked my husband if he was feeding her extra and he said "no, just 1/2 cup in the morning". Well, I had also been giving her a 1/2 cup in the morning and she was still getting her 1/2 cup in the evening. In just a matter of week she started putting on weight! And she still wants more food! We never had this problem with Blue Buffalo. Bottom line is that if you care about keeping your dog at a healthy weight don't buy this food. If you just want some dog food that your dog will love the taste of then go for it.
