Exclamation HELP ! Baby is getting fatter by the minute ! :(

I don*t think this Orijen is for my boy :/ He seems to have gained a lot of weight just in the 4 days I have been switching

I don*t want a fat dog, and for his patella luxation it is NOT good eighter !!!

So what do I do? Just continiue with Royal Canin adult chi???????

I would continue with the better quality food but feed less of it.

Did you cut back on the Royal Canin when you added the Origen? Also, Orijen is pretty high protein. It won't take much to fill him up. In other words, it takes much more of the foods with fillers to fill them up and stay with them than it does a high protein food that is nutritionally better for them. But having said that sometimes if a dog is not active enough to work it off Orijen can be a bit much. Some people find if their dog gains weight on Orijen they can feed Acana if they want to stick with that manufacturer. I do remember a post that you can get Ziwi Peak. What made you decide against that food?
