    DefaultOrijen...am I the only one?

    Am I the only one not having problems?

    Rhys is 100% on the Orijen, eating 1 1/2 cups twice daily for a total of 3 cups...no issues with poop at all.

    Ruby is about 75% on the Orijen (not a science) and is getting 1 cup twice a day for a total of two cups (not just the Orijen though)

    It seems everyone is having a problem...hmmmm....off to call my rep.

    I didn't have any problems with my adults on it.

    Peanut's doing fantastic on it. Her poops are so small and firm they'd be confused for a bunnies.

    I think theres more dogs doing well on it than not. Baloo just happens to be one of the "lucky ones" I guess. : :P

    Rocky is 100% and no problems. Poop is a wee bit stinkier but that might just be due to a "newer" smell my nose is not used to. It's firming up too - more firm than ever.

    still unsure on how much. I was at 4 cups a day which is too much but when i go to 3.5 he scavenges for food at home and at the park.

    He could just have a high metabolism, Tanya. I'd say if he's not gaining weight or having funky poos, just leave him at 4 cups, maybe?

    Rowan does this too but I am getting weight of her and part of me thinks it is just the LAB in her!

    She does get apples, greeen beans and carrots occasionally for a treat.

    He has not gained weight as far as I can tell (will go to check at the vet's soon). He may even have lost a wee bit, I can certainly feel those ribs (though you cannot see them). Poop has never looked better (ok well after eating THREE bags of treats today he was runny LOL).

    I might try sticking to four and see if he gains any weight. He actually hasn't been on just Orijen for very long (about a week or so)

    We were doing well, however, last month we did fish, which was great, but this month we are back on the poultry and day 5 into it with crazy diarrhea. I'm seriously considering getting off it. I can't keep doing this to their asses.
