Orijen 6 Fish

I heard it's going to be available in Calgary next week () and internationally starting mid-May. I have two of my three dogs on Orijen Adult, but the third just does not like it so I'm really hoping she might be interested in this one. Anybody else looking forward to trying it?

Wow, that is really cool! I feed Madison and Chloe Orijen, but since Rylie doesn't do well with chicken, I will probably try that with her (if the regular Orijen doesn't go well when I try to switch her).

Hmm I'm not sure. My dogs love regular Orijen but they typically aren't huge on fish. I might try a sample bag just for the heck

Sophie's on a fish diet so I think she'd really like it. The only worry that I would have is transitioning slowly due to the protein content compared to her natural balance fish and sweet potatoe.

Oh Sophie would be very happy with Orijen Fish over NB I bet! That's a nice step up quality wise. Lucky girl. So that's been the amswer to her food intolerances (fish?)

Yup, that and the NB duck and potatoe. I've had some real problems with NB though and have been wanting to change for a while now.
Every other allergy forumla food seems to have chicken fat or that menadione stuff in it though so I'm pretty excited about this new stuff.

I'm about ready to go to a home made diet (cooked), she's still pretty itchy. Her itching could be environmental though...such a puzzle...
