We ran out of Origen puppy formula and it was time to switch to adult food anyways. I know everyone says that the switch should be gradual, but Shiro eats a large variety of meats along with his kibble (not at the same time) so I felt it wuold be OK to start a new food right away.
He usually gets cooked chiken, ground beef or turkey, sometimes pork every other day, and when I switched from Innova to Origen he didn't have any problems at all.
Anyways, the store near us doesn't have Orijen, plus I had a 20% pay cut at work, so I felt choosing a slightly cheaper food might be not a bad idea. I had Taste of the Wild in mind because a few of my friends use it and like it.
The salesperson told me there's less carbs in Evo than in Taste of the Wild and those 2 were the only grain free foods they had. I bought a small bag of Salmon food (maybe I didn't save any money after all. LOL). I will buy chicken or red meat next time and rotate them so he doesn't get bored of the taste (which is highly unlikely).
Shiro loves it. The bites are smaller than Orijen puppy food and to my surprise he actually chews them. I hope this will make his coat shiny and silky smooth :)
If the things at work don't get better I might go to Wellness Core. Still a good food and slightly cheaper.
There will be no grain in my dog's diet no matter what. He only needs 1 cup a day so it's not like I spend too much anyways. So far with Orijen it was about $20 a month, not bad at all.
Has anyone used more than 1 brand in rotation? What do you use?
