Question Orijen, Acana, or Fromm??

So, I've posted about foods before, and I've read so many on here! Obviously there are many many many many different opinions on food. I know that feeding raw is the best! (I'm still waiting to hear back from ZiwiPeak, because I want Roxy to try that first, to make sure she likes it, before I go ahead and buy some...) Anyways... I was really leaning towards Acana, because a lot of you said you love that. But, I just went through a ton of posts on here, and many have also said you switched off of Acana because you think it's too rich or because your babies were gaining weight! I do NOT want Roxy gaining weight. So, my second choice was Orijen, as I see a ton of you love that... but NOW, I'm leaning towards Fromm!!!!!! WHAT TO DO?! It's driving me nuts!

So, my plan is to get one of those foods (assuming that those are great foods, right?!) and to supplement ZiwiPeak for one meal per day.

So, my next question... if you order online, where do you get these from? I'm looking for a decent price. I want the best for my baby, but I'm not trying to break the bank yet!

HELP!!

Leila has been on both orijen and fromm. I think they are both great foods! The orijen has a lot of protein and i felt like 1. she probably didn't need all that. and 2. I wasn't absolutely sure it was safe.
I ended up going with Taste of the wild because it's something i can buy locally and has good ingredients. No grains either.
If I was choosing between those i'd say go with Fromm.

I feed Fromm & all my chis do amazing on it...I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to feed kibble. I have a pet boutique about 30 miles from e that I buy mine at, if you go to the fromm website there is a store finder section so you may be able to buy it locally..

I feed Raw but I have Orijen in the house for occasions I need it. I think It is an excellent food, and the best you can get from a dry food. (I don't think it is as good as Ziwi but I cannot aford that )

I have not tried Acana but I don't think it is possible for it to be "too rich". The only thing that would make a food less rich is by adding in more non nutritional fillers and less quality meat. Remember that a dog's digestive system is designed to eat only meat not corn, potatoes etc. So a dog can never really have a "too high" or "too rich" concentration of meat in its food. I think if a dog is gaining weight on a food, just reduce quantity a little. What we have to remeber is that the instructions on ammounts to feed on the back of the packets are often over estimated as they want you to go through the bag and repurchase as regularly as possible. When I put the wighed ammount of James Wellbeloved food out for Feodore when he was a puppy (recomended for his weight, and left out 24/7) it took him three days to eat it!

With any dried food I would say- start off with the guide ammount from the packet then adjust by looking at your dogs shape and judging if they need more or less, because every dog is different, just like people.
