    Let's see..

    Orijen is 42% protein (adult formula) & 44% protein (fish formula).
    Evo, Nature's Variety Instinct and Go Natural are 42%; SolidGold Barking at the Moon is 41%.
    Wellness Core is 34%, Timberwolf Organics Wild&Natural is 36% and their Ocean Blue is 26%.

    Here is a good linky: http://www.dogfoodproject.com/index.php?page=grain_free

    There is a regular strength Cosequin (250mg glucosamine) but I think it's for little dogs (under 25lbs). The DS is 500mg glucosamine and 400mg chondroitin.

    I'll definitely let you know what our holistic vet says! I think we go in 2 weeks, on the 26th?

    I'd be interested too Felicia, that'd be great!

    it's funny, I've come to a sad realization with the switch to Orijen that the majority of MY diet I wouldn't let MY DOGS eat. :-[

    They really do eat better than I do....... time to shape up! olice:
    Kate
    Baloo - 5 year old black lab
    Peanut - 7 year old minpin
    Monster - 3-ish year old frenchie/jack, rescue
    We're Superdogs!

    I know, isn't it wild?? Henry eats way better than I do. I would never dream of buying free-range, organic meat and eggs for myself, but for Henry? Not even a 2nd thought!!

    It has made me much more aware of what I put in my own mouth though!!

    Well I guess it still wouldn't be as high as feeding raw, would it?
    Depends on what model they follow. Some diets are under 50%, those that include fruits, veggies, etc. After you take out all the water, cartilage, bones, fiber, and on and on, I'd bet some methods are right in line with Orijen and EVO. Whole prey is a different story.

    In any event, minus those dogs with existing kidney issues, several studies have shown that high protein levels have no effect on the kidneys, contrary to what was once thought.
