I need to switch my 10 week old puppy from Canidae to something as she's having diarrhea most likely due to the food (worm checked, etc). I read a lot about Orijen and Wellness and I would welcome opinion from folks who have used both. I'm going to switch her to a large breed puppy formula and they both seems since. I realize that what works for one may not work for another, but needless to say, I would like to make up my mind by hearing about experiences with both brands.

My concern with Orijen would be how difficult (or how easy would be) for the food to get spoiled. I will be looking at expiration dates/keeping in a dark cool room but also I don't want "the (bad) food because i didn't keep it the way it should" upset her stomach. Is the food that "sensitive" to the environment? :help:

Hmmm didn't think about that. Would Wellness not be as rich or would any "high quality" pet food be rich anyways?
The more I think about it, I really like Orijen more than Wellness. Wellness has a lot of grains in it. I have seen Orijen at country max by me so i know I can get it. Now the guy at country max raves on TOTW due to the quality and price vs. Orijen. I'm not ready to make the switch as she is still on Wellness large puppy breed but now I'm at a loss again....TOTW? I will search the forum for opinions on that vs Orijen. My concern is that if the dog cannot tolerate Orijen, I'll have to find something similar that she can tolerate :thinking:
i believe totw is produced by diamond foods. good food but orijen/acana are really in a league of their own. most people will blow 60 bucks at one good dinner so to feed your pup for a month for the same price is well worth it in my eyes
Hmmm $60.00, geez I spend more than that on dinners unfortunately :crazy:. And very good point! I didn't realize that Diamond made TOTW! HMMM
