I took my dog from a grain free diet full of starches and legumes which tirn out to not be good for heart health in dogs, to a raw diet, and now ultimately to orijen amazing grains and I couldn't be happier with it! All the right proportions of meat and organs hence the whole prey balance that you would get in a proper raw diet, but with the convenience and consistency of a kibble. I love that there are no legumes and my pup is OBSESSED!!
I have 4 dogs and 4 cats. The dogs are Husky/Labs and I have a purebred Lab. They always have some kind of diarrhea. I FINALLY switched to this food and they have had NO diarrhea. Plus their fur is so so soft, no more shedding AT ALL and they love it! My cats have the cat version and everything applies! I have Huskies and Labs that no longer shed! This food is amazing and the ingredients are astonishing!
My dogs gobble this right up. I’ve done a lot of research on dog food and I feel like this one has the best ingredients. It’s it pricey but it is a quality food. The kibbles are perfect size for my chihuahua mix, frenchie and pitbull!
Yes, it is a bit more pricey than some other brands but it’s well worth it! The ingredients are high quality and I feel confident in feeding my dog this food. He’s a picky eater and it is a challenge to find quality food he will eat that doesn’t break the bank. He loves his food so much that he has stopped accepting all but his most favorite treats and prefers his food to people food (accept the foods he’s not supposed to eat of course)! I had one incident where he would not eat from a particular bag (it must’ve been stale) but Chewy sent me out a new bag right away with no hassle. As soon as the new bag arrived he was back to eating as usual. IMPORTANT: my only concern is that a larger company (Mars I believe) has bought out what was a small family owned company as the food became so popular that they couldn’t keep up. I’m keeping an eye out for changes in formula but no changes are being made at this time (the 1st quarter of 2023). Chewy customer service rep said that they are notified of formula changes so I will check back before the 2nd quarter. Chewy customer service is excellent as always. Highly recommend (unless you can make/afford to make your dog food homemade or can afford the super expensive non-kibble kind, but this formula is a close 2nd to homemade and my dog actually prefers it). As with all kibble it’s always a good idea to add some fresh food to it or make sure your doggo is drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated). My dogs stool looks good as far as color and consistency and is regular on this food.
I started by feeding my Labrador Retriever the Amazing Grains Large Puppy, but now that he’s almost a year, and 90 pounds, I got him started on Amazing Grains Original. I alternate between those two and Tase of the Wild Ancient Grains. He loves it! I feed him three times a day, and he gobbled this food up as soon as I put his bowl down. His coat is amazing, shedding is minimal, his eyes and ears are always clear, and he’s got so much energy. Even after I pick him up from a day at his daycare, he still is energetic. I have gotten multiple compliments from people at his daycare about how handsome is. This food really is amazing.
My European sexy lil beastie LOVES this food! She snorfs it right down and she digests it like a dream. No itchy skin, has a shiny coat that sheds little, no allergies, etc. She’s a very happy, healthy girl.
Since I've been feeding Orijen regular grain free kibble, it was easy to transition to the grain inclusive kibble...and they like it. I still add Stella & Chewy's meal toppers, green beans and brown rice to their food. No more picky eaters here.
My baby liked this food time to time, the ingredients are super healthy and even though the kibble is quite big for her I think she liked it that way! She mostly would only eat it if I hand fed her each piece at a time! (But this is still a win for us because 80% of the time she is the most pickiest child ever!) Definitely going to probably purchase again, right now she is trying a different option! But orijen I love the high protien and ingredients! Recommend for sure!
I've been feeding Orijen Original to my pups since I brought them home. I decided to try the Amazing Grains Original and have had digestive upset with both of my dogs. Granted, there are a LOT of factors that go into digestion, but with the only food input change being this, I point at least one finger here. The lesson I've learned is to stick with grain-free for this feed!
Bought this, followed the instructions on mixing with her old food and the first time we gave only this food she threw up and couldn’t finish her bowl.
