I received a reply regarding Natural Flavor



Thank-you for your enquiry regarding our NEW Grain Free. The "natural flavor" is chicken liver. If you have further questions, please ask.

Go is a great food. And not just because the dog on the package is Hunter (one of my breeder's dogs - her partner reps for Go). *cough*shamless plug*cough* LOL

No really, it's been one of the highest rated foods for quite a while now. They sell big sample bags for $2.99, but they're only available for limited times. Go doesn't give out free samples, mainly because of it's reputation (from what I understand).

It's a little higher in kcal/cup than other foods, but if the chicken doesn't agree with your dog (mine gained a bit of weight, but he's lower energy so it was to be expected), then try the salmon (which is also less kcal/cup).

Fantastic food. :thumbs up :thumbs up

Bobby has food issues and he and Amber have been on GO Natural (Chicken) for about a year and a half and both are doing wonderfully well with it. Their coats are awesome and there's no reaction from Bobby at all!

I agree. When the issue regarding menadione sodium bisulfite complex (Vitamin K3) came to my attention I emailed several Canadian companies about it. I finally convinced Michele at Petcurean to look into it and they eventually removed it. Peter at Champion Pet Foods was another.
