Unfortunately, most vet's will push one of the vet recommended brands.... regardless of wether the food a dog is being fed is working or not... (at least that has been my experience here in the Toronto and surrrounding area).. I wouldn't take a vet's advice on food too literally.... every time they ask us to consider switching, i ask "is there something wrong with him?" they say "no"...

There are many different types of food out there, and just as many opinions and positions on what is the 'right' food, etc. My personal belief is that you should do what YOU think/feel is right for your dog. If you feel that orijen is working for your dog, then stick with it. If you feel that it is not, then switch to something else.

I personally switched our guy to Raw after going through various kinds of kibble unsuccessfully, his stomach just didnt tolerate kibble well... you have to find what works for you.

Good luck!
