What do you suggest adding to her food to keep her balanced and keep her on the Orijen? Is Acana made by the same company but has grain? I'll have to do some research. I could just cook up some whole grains and add them in.

Finding the right dog food is soooo hard. I want her to eat the highest quality food that is good for her whole health...
I had an interesting conversation with the vet the rescue is having us take her too... he tried to convince me that Science Diet is the best food out there! All this stuff about how they do tons of research and have science on their side. I bit my tongue... If only I could ask a vet which food is the best without them trying to sell me on Science Diet!!
Acana is made by the same company, yes. And there are two kinds of Acana, grainfree and the regular one with grains. You could switch your dog to Acana Pacifica, it's still a great grainfree fish food, but has 10% less protein than Orijen because of more fruits and vegetables added to it.Monika wrote:What do you suggest adding to her food to keep her balanced and keep her on the Orijen?

Monika wrote:Thanks Franster! I've never heard of that company but I just checked out their website and it sounds great! I searched and the closest store is 45 minutes away... hopefully I can get down there to check it out!

There is only a handful of places around here that carry it, and like I read, it sells out a lot. So when I buy I end up buying $500-600 in dog food just to gaurantee I have it. Now with 2 dogs, Im getting $140+ for the month, with a 3rd on the way Im easily $200+ a month. I am super paranoid about feeding a good healthy food to my dogs. I have seen too many ill affects from feeding low quality foods. Though paying these super high prices I really wonder how much hype it really is. My girlfriend feeds her to Am Bulldogs Wellness which is considerably cheaper then Orijen, her dogs love it and their coats look no better, or worse then my dogs.
