They don't source from China, no corn, by products,etc.
Deboned lamb in their lamb and rice formula. Organic Chicken and then chicken meal in the other..
I think it's a great dog food beside the beet pulp and brewers yeast..
a 10 pound bag costs 20 dollars where I live, and a 18 pound bag costs 25..

What do you guys think?

It's not bad, but at $2 per pound, I'd like to see something grain free and low carb. Protein is a bit low, too.

id agree. if anything is $2/lb, i expect higher protein where most of the protein comes from meat product. grains are cheap compared to meat and i dont believe any grian inclusive food should cost nearly that much.

it is a fair looking food as grain inclusive food go, but unless nothing else would work for your dog, there are cheaper alternatives of similar quality.

I've even seen Cal Natural Lamb and Rice for about $1.50 a pound (roughly $45 for a bag about 30 pounds) and it seems like a better food (at least for now). The last bag of Orijen I bought was $58.99 for 29.7 pounds, which comes to just under $1.99 a pound.

nature variety gets their sources from china. that's a no for me. fromm is alright and hard to get. and natura will be nonexistent in a few months.

i don't really care about the expenses because the 10 pound lasts 2-4 months and the 25 pounds lasts around the same.

wouldnt the 25 pound last 2.5 times as long?so 10 months?

"no raw mterials originate from china"

my guess is that this doesnt cover the synthetic vitamins that a vast number of manufacturers use in dog food and are usually sourced from china.
i'll have to email them about that.

i have a puppy who is 7 pounds and will weight 8-10 pound when full grown and she gets the 10 pound. and then i have a 30 pound dog who gets the 25 pound so they mostly last the same time. (and sometimes i mix both foods)
