most dogs do fine on any food including alpo...and not everyone has 80 dollars to spend on food. just because someone feeds orijen, it doesnt make them better than someone who doesnt. my dad pays for shane's food, and we can afford orijen, but not everyone can..im unemployed so i can relate.Quality costs money, my dog's health is priceless.
Orijen is never an inexpensive food, but 80 dollars is very expensive. I just bought a 29.7 lb. bag of the Orijen Adult 80/20 (updated formula) yesterday for $57 dollars. Another store a mile away was selling it for $62 and a 3rd store was selling it for $68. Needless to say the first store will be getting my future business. I do realize that the fish and red meat formulas cost more.orijens 80 dollars..not all people are you.
I never said that someone was better for feeding Orijen. You can only feed what you can comfortably afford. As long as you make a valiant effort to keep your dog healthy, that's what's important.most dogs do fine on any food including alpo...and not everyone has 80 dollars to spend on food. just because someone feeds orijen, it doesnt make them better than someone who doesnt. my dad pays for shane's food, and we can afford orijen, but not everyone can..im unemployed so i can relate.

Below is what your friend has been feeding his poor dog, because it's from Whole Foods, doesn't make it a quality product. To be perfectly candid, it's utter crap.
