I've read a lot of stuff about Orijen's voluntary recall - this is not the first time I've read about this. I'm glad they pulled out of Austrailia and hope that no other cats have been affected. It's too bad because it's a good kibble as far as kibble goes. However, I've also read that the company was not too forthcoming with information and continued to sell in Austrailia even when it knew that there were problems. Of course, that is hearsay but if Austrailia requires irradiation of foods with a certain percentage of meat, then I would urge pet food companies who use a lot of meat in their food not to export in Austrailia.
Did a three month feed on Orijen 6 fish and the only thing I found was that I had to feed an additional 1/2 cup of food per day. My dogs coat wasn't as nice and actually had dry skin issues appearing. Also noticed a loss of stamina in the field.
I was going to try it for longer but just couldn't.
No one dog food is going to work for every dog. I certainly didn't expect the results I had though.
Awww! I just picked up a sample of Acana. It's the other champion brand. Does this apply to Acana as well? Our Chihuahua loves it!!! I've never see her eat her food like that!
Is there another better brand?
how does one judges wether the dog or cat does on it? I'd like to ensure that our little Chihuahua doesn't get ill from eating it. She's been on royal canine for a few years and did great, I was hesitant in changing her food until I came up on this forum. I hope I'm not making a mistake. She sure likes the Acana small breed dog food.
If your dog is doing well on their current food just stay with it. There is way to much hype about all these so called super foods. In my opinion there is way to much being put into what is a good food and not. In my opinion a good food is the one the dog eats readily and has no issues.
Eveyone needs to stop reading to much into it and listening to so called professional dog nutritionist that have no more experience than researching articles on the internet.
