We're in the process of changing Theia on to Orijen from James Welbeloved. It's a bit more expensive but she'll be fed less of it, so it'll balance out a little.
Going by the guide on the bag she'll be on 230g per day but it looks such a tiny amount. Does anyone else feed Orijen and how close are you to the guide?

Never used it before but I do hear good things about it. I'd try starting with the guideline and then adjust based on looks. We feed Suki less in the summer since she does not use as much energy

We have had Arthur on Orijen for about a month.Seems to be doing well.At the moment he is on puppy food and we have been mixing it with his Pro-plan to get his stomach used to it,but now it's mostly Orijen.We only give him 150gram a day,which was what Pro-Plan recommended.He also has sardines in oil twice a week and anything else he can persuade us to give him,usually carrot or broccoli.He is a very healthy looking boy with a shiny coat and lovely muscles.
We changed his food as it got top marks on the web-site that tests food,can't remember what it's called.

Zeus was on Orijen a few years back, you feed lesser than normal as it's got a very high protein/meat content.

It's a really good food in terms of ingredients but unfortunately because of Zeus's Colitis, Orijen was too rich for him, gave him constant diarrhea etc.

I know this thread is a little old, but I thought it might be a good place to ask for opinions about Orijen.

My father recently gave us some Orijen kibble that he had been feeding his Parson Jack Russell and Bailey clearly likes them. She is 10 now and has generally eaten James Wellbeloved mixed with some chicken or other cooked meat. I've known about Orijen for some time, but was always reluctant to take the plunge, due to the high costs.

I just wondered what sort of quantities you are feeding them and if it needs to be supplemented with other foods to avoid boredom? Clearly the meat content is higher than other foods and there is no filling like rice or potato, which occurs with the cheaper foods.

It's only been a few days, however I have noticed that her coat is softer and she has been a bit calmer out on walks, which is rather welcome. I've heard about another food called Eden, but their website is down at the moment with technical problems.

She is still active at 10 years of age, though clearly not to the same crazy degree as a 2 year old. Her appetite has never wavered though and she has a cast iron stomach, so switching foods never seems to cause any upset. She is naturally big at 21 kilos.
