Great stuff! After,the vet nearly killed one of my Havs with a prescription diet. I started researching holistic/organic & natural food brands and found a canine wellness center where the owner recommended this to us. Our 5 year old was acting like her mother, laying around the house like a lump on a log. After having her on this, within 2 weeks she became frisky! Even started playing with toys something she hadn't done in at least a year and a half. My only regret is that we didn't start our dogs on this sooner.

Rikidaisy - The salesperson said most dogs like this brand of food as and she said only once in a blue moon will a dog turn its nose up at it. At our retailer they sell trial bags for around $2.

JoJo loves his Orijen. We alternate between that, EVO red, and California Natural Lamb.

Re: Orijen Dog Food

I was searching for a retailer that sold Orijen dog food in Oklahoma and found that it is dangerous for dogs!! Here is the link to what I found....

No offense, not trying to be mean but the site listed is a complete farce. Many of the ingredients they insinuate are in Orijen are simply not in it. The use of sweet and russet potatoes are carb-substitutes for the corn and other grains that other mfg's use. These are MORE expensive than the others, healthier and less allergically reactive. The joke was revealed when they insinuated the there was alcohol in Orijen!

I'm not a vet and I don't work for Orijen but even all the respondents in the comments section of the above page disagree with the SusanPeters site, I see no reason to give it any creedence.

Check out this site for better (IMHO) reviews.

www.dogfoodanalysis.com


Also I can't seem to find Orijen around here either but I've had good luck with caninecuisine.com, for Orijen and a lot of other products.

What variety do you feed your dogs? I've been getting Fromm's shipped, but I think there's a place that sells Orijen locally....wouldn't hurt to save on the shipping charges for a food that's just as good for them.

RE: Orijen

Thanks for the advice I am new here and will get my puppy on the 15th and I am just trying to be VERY careful about what I feed her. I greatly appreciate the input and advice on getting a good quality dog food.

I feed my Havs Orijen Adult & they love it. They've been finicky in the past but they gobble this stuff up. Also, you can't overfeed with Orijen as it low carb. Ideal if you have dogs that like to eat more. I started off feeding them the recommended 1 1/4 cup a day and now they both eat 2/3 cup.
