We put our sweet boy at peace just one month ago, and while my heart is still broken and we are devastated, I know that feeding him Orijen contributed to the unbelievably resilient, strong and otherwise healthy dog that we had for the last 9 months. Kramer went into remission in June and lived his absolute best life in his last few months, despite going through 26 weeks of chemo. After we switched his food to Orijen 6 Fish, his gas completely disappeared, his other digestive issues were nonexistent too. Everybody that saw him could not believe that he was sick, because he was truly thriving.
Despite losing Kramer to lymphoma, we have continued to feed our other two dogs Orijen's 6 Fish. On top of the quality and freshness of the ingredients, I fell more in love with the company after they decided to pull their products from Chewy when they were bought by PetSmart. I love what Orijen stands for. I love that no matter where I go to buy their food the price remains the same. It is definitely an expensive food to feed our dogs, considering they're both 70lbs. However, our dogs eat less quantities of this food because there are no unnecessary fillers. Below is a photo of Kramer in the midst of his chemo treatment.
Consider anything that you find at Petco or Petsmart- "Payless" or "Flea Market" versions. YEAH, I know. The food is "Biologically Appropriate" reflecting a dogs natural diet. Great stuff. Hearty. Healthy. Hollistic. Do I really need to convince you?
It is an expensive brand, but definitely worth it's price. When our Aussie turned 7, we discovered a specialty pet store nearby, called Wyllie Waggs. This store carries a great variety of healthy pet foods, treats, and toys. I like this store because it is easy to find other Hollistic dog foods; if we ever had to change our dog's diet. Hopefully never.
We went to Wylie Waggs concerned that our Aussie was getting tired of her food; possibly developing an allergy. We had no idea. We told the associate that we were interested in the BEST of the BEST, no second thoughts, hands down, Hollistic Dog food. She introduced us to Orijens

I would NEVER think twice about switching brands. Our Aussie enjoys every meal. (After 2 years,) She DID get tired of eating it but, it does not happen often. She always finishes her bowl. Although she is an older gal, I noticed a major change in her overall health. She is much more active, and definitely a lot less lethargic. Her poop stays consistent but, you will NOT enjoy the flatulence. I kid you not. I suggest adding water to the dry food if, you need to change the consistency.
Orijen offers a sample size to help transition your dog to a new dog food. It is good for maybe, about 2-6 servings? Depending on your dogs size. This was given to us for free from the store we bought the food at. Another great thing Orijen offers is a special program to get a free bag of food. You save 11 proofs of purchase and get the 12th bag for free. We buy Adult Dog, Dry Food in the largest size Bag~$70; 5% tax included. Wylie Waggs does a great job documenting how often we restock on dog food-we return once every 3 months.
Few things I need to mention-
A LOT of veterinarians are recommending the wrong dog foods/products. This is because they are getting PAID $$ to promote these brands. One reason could be the most obvious one...Vets need patients. If your dog or pet is in great shape, they won't need many visits to the Vet. You may need to reconsider looking for other Veterinarians if they are notorious for doing this.
Orijen is high in Protein. Talk to an associate to see if Orijen is an appropriate product for your lovable companion. Acana is another leading brand, similar to Orijen (actually, same company); meant for smaller dogs. You could also consider giving that a try too. Xxoo
