Hi All

Now that Daisy is 6 months and her stomach seems to have settled I am on the search for another decent food to try her on. She is currently on IAMs puppy...

I tried her on Burns and it gave her colitis and I am now wondering if maybe it could have been it was too rich in proteins for her. I looked at orijen but as it is high in meat I am wondering if this could possibly have the same effect. What do others reckon?

and is IAMs puppy really that bad?

Orijen is high in protein so may have the same effect.
Acana is slightly less and is made by the same folk as Orijen, maybe that is worth a go?
I hope you find something that suits soon either way.

As far as IAMS, i have never heard anything good about it, have never tried it with any of my dogs mind you.

I would try the orejin...maybe the mixture will be better for her. It seems to have a big list of health-benefiting ingredients. My dog is crazy about it. He also seems to have a good stomach. I probably started him on it around 4-5 months of age.

Mine are on Evo Innova Red Meat which is grain free and high protein, and I've been mixing in some Orijen which is also grain free and high protein, but it has different protein sources than the Evo, and I like that. More nutrients, more omegas etc from the seafood in the Orijen.

I will say that every time I've fed Tango any kind of food with fish in it, he's always gotten the runs. So I was a bit hesitant with the Orijen because its primary protein sources are fowl and fish. Interestingly, he's had NO problem with it. I started out with just a couple pieces of kibble in his Evo, and have gradually built it up over the last 10 days to where it's about 1/2 and 1/2 now, and still no problem.

The Orijen has a considerably larger kibble too and I thought that might be a problem, because they've always turned their noses up at kibble that was larger than the Evo. But that hasn't been an issue either. I like that the kibble's larger....more chewing time, meaning more benefits for their teeth.

Given Tango's experience, you might want to try the Orijen, considering it didn't give him any digestive issues.
