I make our dogs' food. I went pet food shopping for a family member and the owner of the place gave me a small bag of Orijen food. My youngest, Oscar, did NOT do well at all on it. Even just a little bit with his normal food...he had runny poopies and threw up three times during the night. I hate to waste food....but I got rid of it very fast! After that Epic Failure, I will continue to make homemade food for both my dogs. I am sure Orijen works great for some, just not my youngest. It was worth a shot.
