Exclamation Wow

So I posted a thread awhile back about this food, no one had tons to say about it. Rocket does very well on Orijen Adult, but has never loved it. Eats barely enough to get by. He is 17 months.

Yesterday, they had a 14lb bag of this food and I decided to give it a try. I still want to contact the company to see if I can get info on how much of it (% wise) is the meat meal. He had two servings yesterday and two today (mixed with the Orijen) and -------

WOW. He RAN to the laundry room today when I got his food bowl both times, pushed his nose in the way, sat and licked his chops while I was dishing. He was DROOLING. He just ate his dinner in about 2 minutes, (maybe three, but the point is ALL AT ONCE AND NOT BEGRUDGINGLY) which he has NEVER done. Just now, as I was typing this, he came back and licked his bowl. This has never happened.

I really hope he does well on this food. If anyone has anything to offer about the ingredients, ----- CARMEN, ARE YOU LISTENING? --- I would love to hear it. It's made in the USA, never had a recall.
