Whether it's good or not - Bodhi loves Now! and Go! (same brand) better than she loves Orijen. However, sometimes her poos go runny on Go!.

Just looking at the list of ingredients, i wouldnt choose it. The only meat in the top is the turkey, and that is with its water weight, when it is cooked at the high temps its dehydrated weight would make it much farther down the list, there are a lot of carbs ect in that food, and i find the term 'sun dried' alfalfa interesting! It isnt a terrible food by any means, but there is better, good luck.

I really do like this brand and I love their holistic approach, but this particular formula is extremely carb-heavy, so I would stay away. I once grabbed the equivalent of this for my cat by mistake and he gained weight on just one bag!

I would look at the now! Grain-free line instead of the go!
