So I think everything looks fantastic on the Orijen and AcanaÖI fed it to our girl for about a year. Prior to that, she was on California Naturals. To be honest, even though I was happy feeding the high-end kibble, I didnít notice a difference with her energy levels, muscle tone, or fur. I have also fed Natureís Domain and thatís typically my go-to now. Iíd say Iíve been on this for a year now, and again, no noticeable difference between her now and when she was on Orijen/Acana.

End of the day, try what works best for your dog. My mom has a Pom and it was literally a night and day difference between her on Natural Balance for a year, and then Wellness CORE for a year. Her fur was significantly nicer/thicker on the CORE.

kr16 Depends, an example, if you use Acana classics you can switch Acana classic flavors every month. You can use the same type without slowly changing over. You cant go Acana classic to Acana single source. So you can switch the same type. Same example with natural Balance limited you can switch flavors. Other companies may have the same thing like Fromm.

You than may get in the situation like mine when I did that and she now hates them all now.

GSD Owner in Training :-) Is it bad to switch up dog food every so often, so they get different meat sources, nutrients, flavours, etc.?

kr16 Isn't Acana reasonable since your in Canada? The online pet supply place I use has 30% off of Fromms today and usually 20% - 25% off anything else.

barnyard I'm using ND Salmon right now with two of my dogs. The other one seems to be allergic to salmon and right now I'm using Earth's Pride Pet Duck Grain free which is the BJ's brand. I have thought about trying the ND turkey with my allergic girl, but when I looked at Dog Food Advisor a lot of people were saying they had trouble with the turkey. Has anyone here had any problems? I've been very happy with the ND Salmon and sometimes we switch off and use Dr Tim's.

GSD Owner in Training :-) It might actually explain why he is an agressive chewer. He would eat any and all wood, cardboard, material and plastic in sight. Now I'm wondering if he does this because he's not getting enough nutrients in the cr*py Royal food. Crossing fingers and here's hoping it helps curb some of this habit.

It's rated 1.5/2 stars better than Royal and for a bonus the $ saving would be great right now I know it's not the best but at least it's way better than Royal. Just wish we had researched it earlier, poor guys been on it since he was a puppy.
Royal Canine needs to be sued with the false labeling and misleading branding. The specific foods are pretty much all the same. Nothing breed specific, the Poodle, which is much cheaper is the same thing.
