Default Goodbye Wellness....

...Hello Orijen and Innova Evo!!!!! Yup I talked about doing the switch for a while now and finally today my dad was able to swing by the pet shop that sells it (next town over) and pick up one of each bag for me!!! It smells GOOD compared to what Wellness is nowadays and I''m excited to start the transition! LOL ya, i''m a dork! Dont get me wrong, Wellness used to be a great food that I would recommend...until they switched owners. Now to me, its crap! Though still a lot better than some other stuff thats out there...Now the dogs' diets are either Orijen or Innova Evo (I''ll be switching on and off between the two) mixed with fresh raw meat (usually chicken or beef, but sometimes other stuff like venison, lamb, rabbit, etc), olive oil, apple cider vinegar, and loose green tea leaves. A few times a week they''ll get a raw egg some veggies and of course they get their raw meaty bones! My next step to improving their diet even further is adding some Missing Link (the joint formula with glucosomine).

For anyone that is interested here are the ingredient lists:
