    DefaultIs LB Orijen dog food okay?

    This is a grain-free dog food from Canada and has very high reviews across the web. They are one of the only companies to make a Large Breed version of a food like this.

    The analysis is:Guaranteed analysis:
    Protein 42.0% (min.)
    Carbohydrate 18.0% (max.)
    Fat 16.0% (min.)
    Moisture 10.0% (max.)
    Fiber 2.0% (max.)
    Calcium 1.4% (min.)
    Phosphorus 1.1% (min.)
    Omega-6 2.5% (min.)
    Omega-3 1.0% (min.)
    Glucosamine 700 mg/kg (min.)
    Chondroitin 150 mg/kg (min.)
    Microorganisms 50 M cfu/kg

    From what I understand the Calcium/Phosporus levels are good for a large breed puppy? Right? I think that is why they are calling this the large breed forumala.

    My dog is 11.5 months and he is about 63 lbs - I think he put on about 2 lbs in the last 4 months...

    What is your take on the analysis for a dog like mine? He is a house dog, but moderatly active...he comes from an established line of filed dogs...

    My only negative reaction is the Glucosamine and Chondroitin being added - I would rather suppliment it myself...and I think i still will, but only half the recommended dosage...but I am not starting that until he is about 12-14 months, per a orthro vet I know.

    Thanks for your input

    I have never heard of it, but I'm no food expert. You might want to post in the Nutrition section.
