Let's Talk about Our Friend Mr. Chewy!
Today, we are going to talk about our friend Mr. Chewy!! Mr. Chewy was kind enough to send us a bag of Orijen Senior Dog Food to try. I could NOT get the bag open fast enough!! Secretly, I think that when the girlz see a package with Mr. Chewy's picture on it, they just KNOW it is for them!!
The number ONE reason I am going to talk about Orijen today is because I fully and whole-heartedly agree that this is a VERY good quality food. There has NEVER been a recall on this particular food!! It is rated on the Dog Food Advisor site as being FIVE Stars! Five Stars peeps...that is the BEST!!! The Orijen Senior is biologically appropriate for senior dogs of all breeds. If you are interested in reading more about this, please read this. Another advantage in my mind is that dog foods are not regulated by the FDA...but Orijen is regulated by the Canadian equivalent of the FDA!! Directly quoting from their own website: "Orijen's chicken, fish and turkey meals are produced exclusively from animals that are certified as fit for human consumption by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA)."
Mr. Chewy offers FREE SHIPPING on orders over $49 and it is SUPER FAST!!! We received our order in just two days!!
Quoting directly from Orijen: "Formulated to match your dog's natural diet, Orijen Senior is made with high inclusions of free-run chicken, turkey, shole eggs and wild-caught fish. Sustainably farmed or fished within their region in Canada, these world-class ingredients are delivered FRESH each day, so they are preservative-free and bursting with protein and fats to nourish your senior dog completely.
Loaded with the protein-packed animal ingredients (75%) that Mother Nature evolved all dogs to eat, Orijen is also infused with marine-source DHA and EPA omega-3 fatty acids from wild-caught, never-frozen fish which support peak skin and coat conditioning -- your senior dog's outer symbol of health and vitality.
In place of the high-glycemic grains found in conventional dog foods, Orijen features regional fruits and greens that supply natural antioxidants, while selected botanicals including dandelion root and peppermint leaf mirror your dog's natural instinct to forage for grasses and weeds.
Made exclusively in their award-winning factory in Alberta, Canada, Orijen Senior is a naturally delicious way to keep your senior dog happy, healthy, and strong. The link above will take you to a Dog Food Advisor site.

Much has been said about feeding TOO much protein but the girlz only get about 1/2 to 3/4 cup per DAY...with a little cooked chicken or hamburger mixed in with their coconut oil! They are THRILLED with their new food and so am I!!
