IF I had to feed a kibble, it would be EVO or Orijen. There is not a whole lot of difference between them and I doubt you could tell the difference in the health of your dog if you fed either one. Both are a step above TOTW IMO.

My opinion, EVO and Orijen are a toss up. I have been feeding Orijen because my do dog does not care for EVO. TOTW is a upper mid grade or low end premium kibble.

You can tell the overall quality of the kibble by noting the protein percentage. Do not let anyone kid you, the more meat based protein the better. Also the lower the protein the higher the carbohydrates, dogs have absolutely no need for carbos. TOTW is lower protein that the top brands, they make it up by using potatos which are mostly carbs and/or peas which provide plant based protein. Better than grain based kibbles but not optimum.

I've never heard of Orijen having difficulty coming into the states (unless it's a recent thing). At the pet shop were I go, I use Evo, but they have lots of Orijen there. They get shipments every Thursday because it's so popular...

I have feed my dogs both Orijen and Evo. I have never tried TOTW. But I tell you my dogs prefer Orijen!

Evo

We've never used Orijen, but the Evo Large Bites Turkey & Chicken has the high protein, low carbs that Zio thrives on. Also the fact that it's grain-free is a plus for us.

JMHO,
