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:

I had Timber on Wellness 5 but I just couldnt stop thinking about Orijen. I had a brochure and it just seemed like such a great food. So at my next Vet appt I went ahead and picked up a bag. I also found out that our Vets office is the ONLY place to get it in our entire state. Wow!
Anyway.....I started adding in the Orijen to the wellness and everything was going good. Until I took that last step with the transition. The point where Timber was getting no more Wellness at all. Just one cup of Orijen All Life Stages.
Now.....we've had very loose stools for the past 4 days. Yesterday I bumped the amount back down to half Wellness and half Orijen. We'll see if it helps but now I dont know what to do.
Im totally into the Orijen though. Im just hoping Timber's tummy adjusts to the change.
