    no one has said that their dogs are 6 or 7 years old -with no health issues -AFTER - eating these two foods. - let me start by saying that if i had a lab or a Shepard, these two foods might get by , not good at all, but the dogs bodies may not show the response the way the Bulldogs bodies do!(and I guarantee that it would shorten the lives of dogs by years,not months)

    Blue Buffalo Pet Foods are manufactured by CJ Foods in Bern, Kansas and Dad's Pet Care in Meadville, Penn. Simmons Pet Foods in Arkansas produces canned foods. Meat meal ingredients (example chicken meal)*** contain internal organs; *****(leading cause of stones in Bulldogs, to laden with minerals)fish meal is preserved naturally with Naturox. Blue Buffalo did not respond to inquiries to cooking time and temperature.*** why is this a secret? to high temp or to long cooking makes the food hydrolyzed, and harmful to dogs(easier to digest,that's why they cook it so long, but it brakes down the food into its own amino acids)
    oh and by the way Blue Buffalo had some food recalled recently!

    you see you and most of the public do not get to see the real facts on what is in the food- only whta they want you to see and think.
    the other foods you have been trying may go silently ,,doing damage for years before the organs and body bust out with life long problems, the dogs that we get in rescue are never under 3 unless they have major problems- it is 4 to 6 years when the vet bills get so high that folks give up on all the money they paid in the first place, it is to late for the dog to lead a healthy life, usually they have chronic ear issues, skin, digestion,and kidney,liver,but the fosters get them back to tolerable safe health, and let people know what is safe for Bulldogs to eat to stay out of the vet .
    all I am trying to do after 12 years of rescue is tell you , you will get out of your dog what you put into them. good food, clean body,daily washings of face,private areas,and a good acid content into ears twice a week,(50/50 mix of vinegar/water) that keeps the yeast form ever growing, if done regularly.this is to help you and the dogs have a happy healthy life, because Bulldogs are 180 degrees different than any other dog.

    I feed my Rambo Orijin Dog food.
    When we had first gotten him, he had horrible horrible gas, and at the time he was being fed, chicken soup for the dog lovers soul or something a long those lines, we had him close to a month when we realized it was the chicken giving him horrible gas. He was actually allergic to chicken haha So we put him on 0rijin 6 fish. his has got way better, but it took about 3 months before his stool would finally become normal. weve had him for about 5-6 months now,and am starting to put him on orijin red meat formula, to give him more of that heartier protein, to put on more muscle weight. He's doing great on the food, and so is my boston terrier haha their both quite big for their breeds so them being on this food makes them look and feel fantastic

    first -- how did you find that he was allergic to chicken? did you take him to a specialist and have him tested? or just switch around on the food till you found one that did not give him gas? let me know because - you can take 2 brands of foods , same ingredients apparently--and one will bother the dog and not the other! I can tell you why, but bottom line - that is what I tell owners that Bulldogs should only eat certain brands, because they are that touchy!!
    any way, I do not recommend Orijin at all, for many reasons but the basic is that your dog is eating food that is silently doing damage to his body, you may not see it now, -- but you will in about 3 to 4 years at the vets, dogs bodies try to deal with the garbage that they make these foods out of , but eventually it will show up. as chronic, skin,ear,and organ damage,. the last time I spoke with the Orijin manufacturer in Canada , not only refused to put into writing, a guarantee of what they say they put in the foods. that is unacceptable.
    it means that they do not really put into the food what they say they do.by law all they need is a trace of anything to say its in there. and they would not tell me what the temperature is that they cook the foods at nor how long they cook my guess is that it is cooked so hot and so long that it is hydrolyzed. (cooked long enough so that it all is a cooked mush and can be digested more easily, BUT - when the food is cooked like that it cooks down to be come an amino acid, and is harmful to the dogs.(digested good- ) but very harmful. good companies will tell you . not to hot and not to long.
    fromm foods tell you that it is only a few minuets, and not to hot, and they will let you know the exact time and temp. they have nothing to hide and in fact are on board with the truth about pet foods on many things, and the have a nutritionist on duty daily to answer any questions from the customers.
    fromm is the only food that today - I will feed , they tell you how much yogurt type pre and pro biotics are in their food. and it is live not killed. try the fromm 4 star , whitefish, or duck, and change around in the same brand,its OK, no more than 3/4 cup 2 x a day, and thats only if you English is active, if not 1/2 cup twice a day, and 1/3 cup twice a day for the terrier. the just poop it out on the yard, and ad carrots,green beans, and veggie, cooked at first to get them used to it , with water on the kibble for the vitamins in the water.
    I looked at the chicken soup for the dog lovers soul, ugh!!! real bad . diamond foods make that , and they are just about the worst, just a notch up from iams, or purina, but beniful is the worst. no meat at all , just the stomach contents from a cow,
    HEY--- its protein.so says the FDA

    No we didnt take rambo in to a specialist, my fiance works at a feed store and he does a lot of research on animals and the foods. with the allergy to chicken, on top of the horrible gas, his ears were getting bad and gunky, his eyes were very teary causeing a lot of junk out of there, and he was licking his paws an awful lot. his fur wasnt as nice, and he had bad dandruff.
    Taking in all of those side effects led us to believe it was an allergy towards chicken, because were still feeding him chicken food, aqnd when we switched over to 6 fish everything got a lot better.

    What you have to say about Orijin, I honestly didnt know any of that. I mean dont get me wrong I dont know much about foods for dogs other than they key ingrediants that shouldnt be in the food, but my fiance does all the research and he really likes this food.

    If its so bad why would it be a 6 star rating dog food? I mean I look at the ingrediants, and I see a lot of REAL ingrdiants in there.
    Now as for purina and beneful and all that jazz, yes thats crap hahaha

    Our dogs dont even get biscuts haha they get the treats that are purely food ingrediants with no other products in them.

    Fromm brand dog food Ive actually never heard of haha I'll have to check it out.

    Hello,

    This is Chad, Danielle's fiance. For starters read this independent paper.


    http://orijen.ca/orijen/ORIJEN_White_Paper.pdf

    Then watch the video.
    Orijen Pet Foods: Products

    Orijen cooks their meats at 190F (at least this is what I remember talking to them about) which is a very low temp compared to most other brands of dog foods.

    If Orijen is so bad, why do I have customers that have been feeding it for 4-6 years with 11 year old dogs that look like they are 4-5 years old? Why are holistic vets recommending this food? Normal vets only have to take ONE semester of nutritional courses.

    99% of people that have problems with feeding Orijen, Evo, and other high protein, low carbohydrate foods comes down to simply over feeding. Our dogs are not fed off guidelines, they are fed off calorie needs, = lazy day = less food, hiking/running day = more food. Simple as that.

    Now I would like to know what ingredients in Orijen leads you to believe it is damaging organs in dogs?

    Now looking at Fromm dog food "Grain free" surf and turf formula looks like a good food, but personally I will not feed it to my dogs. It's much higher in in Carbs, than Orijen, Evo, among other grain free foods. Dogs have little to NO nutritional needs for carbohydrates they can't use carbohydrates like we can, simple carbs are stored directly as fat, or pooped out, and not used. Complex carbs can be used much more easily but it's not needed, as dogs use protein and fat as energy as we use carbs keep in mind I used to be a body builder and I understand how protein, fats, and carbs work.

    Here's a few ingredients I would not like to see in their food. Dried Tomato Pomace not a bad ingredient but a filler and nothing else.
    Pea Protein: A plant biased protein to boost the protein % in the dog food, sadly it's an 'incomplete' protein that dogs can't use to it's full potential like true omnivores or herbivores can. IE: pooping it out.
    Flaxseed: A quailty ingredient, but the omega fatty acids are in AL, which human digestive systems can convert into EFA and DHA, with DHA being the most usable source sadly dogs cannot convert AL into EFA, and DHA like we can, so intern it is not being used, and it's being pooped out.

    My only problem I have with Orijen Regional Red is potato starch but they use it because it helps keep the kibbles shape as they use so much meat. All dry kibble have to have starch/carb source to keep the kibbles shape, otherwise all the meat would just crumble a part.




    Cheers,
    Chad

    I'd also like to explain how I figured out he was allergic to Chicken. When we first got him, he was on Chicken Soup, and I switched him over to Taste of the Wild fowl. It improved slightly, bad gas, gunked ears, dandruff, dull coat, and licking his paws almost raw. I then switched him to Orijen Six Fish, and before that bag was gone lasts both dogs 4-5 weeks, he had almost no gas, coat was much softer shinner, stopped licking his paws. Then we couldn't get Six Fish so I switched them to Orijen adult which has Turkey/Chicken, went straight back to, bad gas, licking of paws etc... switched him back to Six Fish, he's been find since January on it. Now in the slow process of switching him over to the Red meat formula.

    As I think he'll do great on it, and personally I like switching up the main protein sources every 2-3 bags, my Boston Terrier I can just straight up switch without mixing, and she'd be fine not even a soft stool, the English Bulldog however... give him a new treat and his stool goes bad for days. So when I have switched him I do it over a month long or longer process.

    So all in all he had allergic reactions to three different foods containing chicken and had no problem with foods without Chicken?


    Cheers,
    Chad

    I also found out my Tidus was (more than likely) allergic to chicken the same way you found out. I had even tried fish based diets but most of them still contain a small amount of chicken. It was not until I went to a strictly beef diet that he got better. I also only give him salmon oil every 3 days because if I give it everyday it seems to cause a reaction as well. So it is also probable that he has a slight allergy to fish too!

    I looked at your materials and I do not question Orijen is a great food myself. The only thing that concerns me is the amount of protein not being utilized by my dog, since they are not althletic or anything. I think the 30% I am currently feeding (Fromm Beef Frittata) is a bit high as well, but I give him a bit less kibble and give him veggies, cottage cheese, yogurt and pumpkin to give him the added food/fat he needs.

    Note to Linda, I do see enzymes in the adult dog food in the guaranteed analysis. Are these not live?

    Hi Chad, you should switch teh meat source every few months yes , just keep it in the same brand,
    that is why Fromm offers the gold foods, it is several meats together, so that dogs do not ever become intolerant to any meat. and I do not feed (treats__dog treats anyway,I never know whats in them) if any treats, a childs circus cookie is small enough to not cause tummy upset ,even in 1/2 the are happy with them, and I know that they are safe for them to eat. but mostly feed fruit and veggies, that also dilute the urine from becoming concentrated, and acidic. along with a bit of meat broth,in the drinking water. you know bullys.
    all that other food might do fine on a lot of breeds but not long term on bullys. they are so sensative that you can take two foods with almost exactly the same ingredients, and just because it is made differently,with slightly different types of the same thing, I have seen bully react terribly .thank god not all of them are that sensitive. but if anything it is the high protein that will get them, they are not active or a working breed. to burn it off. as a body builder you should recognize that!

    Lisa if you are talking about the Fromm, yes most certainly , they are live , on the other brands-- they do not guarantee in writing that they are even there --BY LAW-- they don't have to --
    it is just that small family Fromm company WANT TO. go above and beyond the basics, on just legal!
    thats why they also let you know the type of meat used, lic their faculty beyond the needed licensing. have a nutritionist on duty all day to take questions , use only natural vitamins form veggies and fruit ,(such as the peas for a nutritional purpose)use the cheese locally , and truck in the good meats daily
    and they DO NOT advertise!!!! that costs money,the(((( highest cost of manufacturing and bringing to market!!))) the food sells its self!!!!
    wellness used to be that way, till they built a new plant and went the way of cheaper foods, and now they find the need to advertise and are in the petco,petsmart stores now. to sell the numbers -bag the quality!

    dear Chad,
    what I have found also, is that if a dog is reactive to one meat, it is because they were fed that meat day in and day out. until the body finds it intolerable, and reacts !!!
    that is why it is good to try all the different meats in any brand, like the 4 star fromm foods, then only after trying all of them , should you go on to the gold fromm that has several types of meats all in one.
    that way they always have selection and never get intolerant again.
    and it is often --- the added treats that dogs are reactive to, and cause the loose stools! but I have seen may bullys very sensitive,
    and for that, I always keep a bottle of Pepcid AC on hand to calm the tummy in about an hour. also canned pumpkin, and children's pedialite, to replace water with during a long bout of diarrhea, to balance those electrolytes again. for a couple days. but ad broth to it , so they like it ,. and benadryl for spider bites,calming anxiety also. under 50lbs 1 -3 x a day, over 50lbs 2 -3 x a day.
    heres hoping you have no more tummy issues with your dogs.

    You haven't seen a good photo of my dog then! His name is not Rambo for the heck of it! He currently is getting 23 or so Calories per pound of body weight, he weighs 72lbs. He is highly active, and runs 3-5 miles 2-3 time per week with no problem at all, I've also been training him to weight pull as he enjoys it, and burns off plenty of calories with how active he his. He just had surgery the other day, and had to go without food for a good part of 36+ hours, and he lost 2lbs in that time, that's how active he is. He is a lean very fit English Bulldog, with a 24" neck, shoulders at my knees.

    Protein % means nothing even if you have an old senior dog, it's how many calories of that high protein food you are feeding, again my dogs are feed of caloric needs, not off the guidelines on the bag. Most people feed too much, and most guidelines say feed to much, because they want you to buy more food. 2 bags of Orijen lasted my 72lb English Bulldog, and 27lb Boston Terrier 10 weeks! My Boston runs 5-10 miles 2-3 time per week, and goes on long hard hikes with me weekly/bi weekly.

    So again would you answer my question(s)?

    Now I would like to know what ingredients in Orijen leads you to believe it is damaging organs in dogs?


    "I had even tried fish based diets but most of them still contain a small amount of chicken." Orijen Six Fish, and Regional Red contain no chicken they do have an adult formula that has Turkey/chicken that I rotate with my Boston with the other formulas.

    I personally don't like beef for my dogs, as it is harder to digest than other protein sources, and dogs can become allergic to beef just like they can become allergic to chicken. This is way I chose the foods I feed, and raise my dogs rotating foods, the earlier the better as it'll be easier to switch up foods as they get old, now not all dogs will be able to switch easy, but if you start rotating sooner than later it makes it easier.

    I believe Acana made by the same company as Orijen has a all fish grain free formula that doesn't contain chicken as well, and it's lower in protein than Orijen.

    Chad

    to date Chad , the fromm and one or two others do not take part in this practice, but that is all.


    Landfill Diversion Pet Food/Animal Food
    Expired meat, diverted from landfills, fed to pets and zoo animals. How's that for quality nutrition? While I would never feed my pets or any other member of my family expired meat, I went on a quest to find information about the risks of consuming expired meat. What I found, was...not much and nothing comforting.
    Landfill Diversion Pet Food/Animal Food
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    this company is so new that they have only had 4 reviews, and I remember talking to them on the phone, and they flat refused to put into writing anything guaranteed about the pre and pro biotics, the lactobacsillasthe yogurt type cultures) they also admitted that they only try to use natural vitamins when they can, meaning they use man made chemicals as vitamins.and they felt that the cooking time and temp was a company secret/patent. the temp is as important as the amount of time cooked .
    and I was talking both tomy vet and the nutritionist at Fromm and I have a dog that tends to make stones, so I must be careful to not feed any food that may have organ meat in it because of the high minerals, and for every fruit or veggie that I add to the kibble, I do dilute the acid content in the urine,
    and Bulldogs never drink enough water so this helps them stay low acid content and by adding broth to the water bowls , I increase the water in take. hope this helps .
