Rated 5 out of 5 by Anita Great food, big difference in the itch factor!
My puppy has a sensitivity to chicken, as I discovered with the intense itchiness she had after eating anything containing chicken through a process of elimination. Since she is old enough to start on adult food, I looked into Orijen's adult food offerings. Thankfully they offer 2 options that do not contain chicken. I ordered a bag of the fish and a bag of the regional red. I haven't tried the regional red, but the fish was a big hit with my puppy. She refused to eat her prescription kibble as I started transitioning her to the adult food (she ate the Orijen and spit out the prescription food), but she had zero GI issues, so I transitioned her in less than a week's time. The food does have a distinct smell which is a bit off-putting to me, however my puppy loves it and it doesn't linger too long. I've now transitioned her to a 50-50 mixture with fresh food and she inhales it in 5 minutes or less. She's no longer itchy and her coat is super soft, it's made a noticeable difference, thanks Orijen!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PWDmom One of the best no grain, high protein foods
This food is a winner for quality, grain free, feeding for active and aging dogs who have high protein needs for muscular, lean bodies. Veggie component in the food menu. All of my PWDs love it. Digestion of the food is magnificent. My kids eat the fish formula. No added fillers.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CharliesMom No Longer a Canadian Product
Very concerned to hear that Orijen is changing this product. Not only will it be made in the US with different suppliers of the ingredients, additionally the bag will go from 28lbs to 25lbs. Reading the reviews from other people on the other flavors already being made and manufactured in the US there is a quality difference (inferior ingredients) and possible change in the formulas itself. I'm concerned when the change occurs for the 6 Fish (US manufactured still not available), the price point won't drop even with the 3lb difference. I'm concerned that we will have to switch our dog to a different brand at this point. This is why I'm only giving the product a three star- it seems another company is looking to cut corners and expect its customers not to notice.

Rated 3 out of 5 by HMB190 Smells fresh
Orijen Fish smells good and the dogs really enjoy it, but I think it has too many lentil, peas (fillers), alfalfa etc... and all 4 dogs itch from it if I only offer this dry food. That's why I can't recommend solely giving this kibble. So I started giving them raw beef (VE) with it and the itching has stopped:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by HavaneseMom Good choice for dogs with allergies.
We switched from Orijen Adult to the Orijen Fish because it has no egg product. We are happy that their itching and red eye stain has improved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PomMom Picky Pom loves fish food
Pretty fragrant as dog foods go, but heck...that just may be the appeal, 'cause she's crazy about this food. Since her allergy to chicken reared its ugly head, her Vet assigned me the not so easy task of finding a food that was good for her, grain-free, and without the typical protein. There were so many, I lost count of brands she turned her nose up at when my local store suppested I try the Orijen's 6 fish. The minute I opened the bag I just knew from the smell this was going to be another epic fail. Not so! Se loved it! Along with this I feed her Wellness canned grain free Turkey and Potato and her skin problems have cleared. She loves both and loves her mom for hanging in there and finding her Favs. ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by sharkriver Great product
I feed this to my two adult German Shepherds and they love it. I've gone the raw food route-- but found it way to expensive and time consuming . Orijen has the best ingredients and I trust the products for my dogs. They are fit, trim, and healthy. I also don't have to worry about them missing vitamins etc..as its all included in their food.
