I used Fromm Gold LBP and was nothing but impressed. They are a small family owned co out of WI that uses only US sourced ingredients and owns their own manufacturing plant. Never had a recall and have FANTASTIC customer service. If you call them/email them they will send you a decent coupon (like $5 off) plus if you "like them on Facebook, they give away free stuff coupons on holidays (like valentine's) . They also have a deal that is you purchase 12 bags, you get the 13th free. I recently transitioned my lab to their GF four star line and still have nothing but great things to say. I do use a single source high protein topper like Merrick BG, Hound and Gato, Dave's for her dinner and just rotate the proteins every can. FYI though, it seems quite a bit of the rabbit supplied for wet food comes from China.

I feed Orijen with a huge topper every night. The topper can be a high meat based canned food, such as Evanders or By-Nature or slightly cooked beef heart, chicken heart, chicken fillets, fish fillets or ground beef. I cook in a small amount of water then cool in the freezer, boy Tony loves the gravy.
Milk/dairy products, such as cottage cheese and yogurt should be kept to a minimum, as dogs have a hard time digesting lactose.

I feed Orijen to my puppies and no "toppers" as it is already very rich.
If you are spending all that money on the highest quality dog food, which is 75-80% meat ingredients, why would you spend more money and add all that stuff.
I always feed my puppies Orijen with water, thats it.
On a special occasion, they might get some extras, but not routinely.
My 2 cents.
