Now

Has anyone tried the new NOW from GO Natural? It's less protein but I'm afraid there is lots of potato.

I haven't tried this food, but just looking at the ingredients I would bet that the carb content is pretty high. The analysis doesn't list how much is actually carbs, but since the first ingredient is a wet form meat (at least in the adult formula) and the second is potato flour, then the potato flour is actually the first ingredient.

High protein isn't a problem unless your dog has a kidney condition that would make it necessary to feed lower protein.
