|I feed Orijen occasionally in the dogs' rotation... when I can afford it.
Another factor that keeps me from feeding it more often too, is that Ava gains weight just by looking at it. Even with as active as she and Nix are, Ava's metabolism is way too slow to eat a high calorie food like Orijen all the time. I'd have to reduce her from her normal 2 cups a day of ToTW, to only 3/4 of a cup a day on Orijen, just to maintain her normal weight, which might not seem so bad since I'd be saving on food--but it would be bad because Ava would feel hungry all the time and start seeking out nasty things to eat on the side, like acorns, trash, deer poop, etc.
Nix does really well on Orijen though, since his metabolism is like.. ultra fast! haha
