[quote="MANSTAFF"][quote="Patch O' Pits"]Orijen appears to have too much protein. I'm surprised they are marketing it as a puppy food JMO
Orijen's high protein diet eliminates the need for grains and reduces the reliance on carbohydrates to provide inexpensive but inappropriate energy sources. Unlike carbs. which can adversly affect blood sugars and are easily stored in the body as fat, any unused protein is removed through normal bodily functions. High protein diets are naturally more satiating, dogs consume less than they would off other commercial pet foods. Fresh chicken, Fresh caught whitefish, Farm fresh eggs, all three arrive fresh, not frozen or dried, all fit for human consumption. They use highly controlled, low temp. (90C) processing methods,steam cook fresh ingredients in small batches to preserve natural goodness and taste. Orijen does not contain biologically inappropriate ingredients such as cereal grains. Instead of grains, a full 30 percent of Orijen diets comes from regional fruits, vegtables and botanicles. These healthful ingredients match the natural diet and supply important protector nutrients like B-vitamins, essential minerals and valuable enzymes that enhance immunity and wellness in dogs.
70 percent vet inspected meats
30 percent fruit,vegetables and botanicles
0 percent grain
= I haven't found anything better in the research I have done. I am willing to fork out a little more $$ to provide my dog with the best nutrition available in a kibble. Anyway, Orijen should pay me for the plug!!
