Well, I after cutting out the Tripett, salmon oil, and yogurt for 2 weeks there is no change in the stinky breath. So I picked up a bag of Acana Adult (with grain). I will give it a go, and see what the difference may be. If this works I will try the Acana Grain-Free to see what difference that makes. If this doesn't make a difference I will switch to a different company since Acana and Orijen are both made by Champion.

As I am looking at the labels I notice Orijen lists "crude protein" rather than "protein", is there a difference?



Here is the Acana Adult:

Chicken meal, steamed oats, fresh free-run chicken, peas, brown rice, chicken fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols and rosemary), fresh deboned salmon, chicken liver, fresh whole eggs, sun-cured alfalfa, salmon oil, pumpkin, chicken cartilage (natural source of glucosamine), red delicious apples, carrots, turnip greens, cranberries, Saskatoon berries, organic sea vegetables (kelp, bladderwrack, dulse), burdock root, marshmallow root, juniper berries, fenugreek, sweet fennel, angelica root, sea buckthorn, chicory root, stinging nettle, red raspberry leaf, milk thistle, peppermint leaf, marigold flowers, chamomile flowers, lactobacillus acidophilus, enterococcus faecium + vitamins and minerals. Vitamins (vit. A, vit. D3, vit. E, niacin, riboflavin, lysine, thiamine mononitrate, vit. B12, pyridoxine, folic acid, biotin). Minerals (iron proteinate, zinc proteinate, manganese proteinate, cobalt proteinate, copper proteinate).
